    Better leave it disconnected for more than 1/2 hr as I faced quite similar problem last week & disconnected my car battery for 5 min but it didn't help then I left my car battery disconnected for longer time. Which reset MID, blue & me to factory setting. Things are good ever since
  3. Actually you can open the blue and me box and disconnect the blue & me it self, disconnecting battery will cause whole ECU reset.

    Oops, seeing this after long time. I did not click any photos during that time - sorry for that :( (was too busy getting my hands dirty, doing things along with the mech ;) ).

    Open the glove box fully and you can see that there is a hole through which the wire is being routed. You can see the counter part in the engine bay too. But, this is not a straight cut through the firewall. Try leading the wire from the glove box side - the wire will go down and then with some dexterity, you should be able to pull up this from the engine bay.

    Maybe it is different in the Punto. I could not find any wires from the glove box except the ones for Blue & me :(

    I found an alternative way to get wiring from the engine bay to the cabin. To do this , you would need to remove the driver's side wiper and the plastic trim (jaali) under the wiper assembly. Then if you look inwards , right under the surface , there are two grommets (empty). Feeding a wire through the top one will cause it to come from a little above the accelerator pedal inside the cabin.

    Still looking for the best way to route it from the front doors to the cabin.

    Checked a few threads for my query, but couldnt find a definite answer to this...

    What is the max permissible spec for headlights (low and high) and fog lights for the punto without installing a relay?
  10. Without relay stay with oem spec.
