    Re: Regarding Battery problem of Linea MJD

    Looks so, because I have left my car un-used couple of times for 10-12 days and many times for 6-7 days.
    Better to get it checked with TASC also, may be some connection is using some power continuously.

    Please find my comments below,


    Please provide more details:

    1. Where is the car parked when not in use? >>>> If its parked under a high tension power cable or close to a transformer...the battery would drain out.
    Amit-- The car was parked in covered garage only.
    2. For how long was the car parked unused? >>>>If its parked unused for more than 10 days...battery tends to drain out....its suggested to detach the power cables from battery in that case.
    Amit -- the car was unused for 10-12 days at a stretch. The cables were not detached.
    3. Battery can be faulty >>>>If the battery is under warranty.... please get it replaced.
    Amit -- We are going to detach the cables for 5-7 days and then we will see if the car starts or not.

    Do let me know if I need to do anything more.

    Detatch the battery cables for the next 10 days when not in use. If still the battery drains then it is a battery problem.

    Next step take the car to the authorised service staion check the Battery + the alternator.

    Apologies for a late reply:

    Try leaving the car parked with battery cables detached next time....if problem persists....run to service center and get your car batteries replaced under warranty.

    Yesterday i also faced almost the same problem. In the morning when i started the car, the car refused to start & when on ignition position some different type of noise was coming like tak tak tak tak tak & all the needles were dancing. than called RSA & towed the vehicle to TASS, so now see what happens, as i talked to TASS advisor, he told that the battery was drained but i dont know how as i use the car regularly.
    Today he will diagnise & call, lets see what is the answer.

    FAULTY DOOR LOCKS

    Guys, i am observing from last couple of months that door lock pads provided from outside are faulty! Its Alignment is bit faulty due to which it gets stuck if try to open it up without particular angle.Rear end of this panel sometimes stuck with outside molded plastic casing. Due to this problem that door lock panel stars scrapping the paint from body!! :uh ANY1 FACING SAME PROBLEM AS I AM FACING???

    i'll post some pics later this weekend.

    Yes. we have to open all GP door handle with particular angle & position.It may be called as some design error.

    I can't give feedback about paint scrataching due to door handle.
    Because I own Active Varient. Active has no Body colored Door Handles. Please post the image
