    1. It should turn immediately when you crank Key. Without Key it will not start as per my knowledge.
    2. It will take time to read from USB first time if you have huge folder list & songs, It happens with me too, I have 12 folders & 1200 songs in USB.
    3. It is usual behavior of HU, it will play first song then randomly other if you select Random/ Play all without selecting folder. Select the folder you wish to listen, the first song of that folder will start as first song then randomly other songs will play.
    4. After key ignition if it will give any noise, please check if it comes from HU, then get it checked from service center guys. Ask them to open a job card and allocate one personnel to rectify this.

    Thanks for the replay Suman,

    I agree that whenever you insert the USB it plays first song but I set my Autoplay option is ON and it was expected to play the song which was previously played HU when give kay ignition (instead if first song always).

    I think something wrong with HU because it also was not turn ON by pressing the Vol button... it needs to give key ignition to turn ON..

    Today I have registered my complaint on Fiat customer care center..

    With or with out key fiat HU will switch on /off using vol button and play songs , only difference is with out key you will not be able to play using media player i.e USB.

    With out key the HU will work for 15 mins and automatically switch off if key is not inserted.

    Try to reset, from setting options. Not sure if this will solve the issue though.

    Welcome Makarand, yes if the autoplay is on then from last song will play, it works for me and I think for other TFI friends too. Please tell these details to Service center clearly, they will rectify.

    Vijay, you are correct here, upon pressing volume button it will play FM or music and not from USB.
