    ^^ In case your Blue & me needs to be replaced; why not look for a good HU in the market? Anyways your car is out of warranty.

    I don't think that any after market HU will work by steering mounted controls. If your priority is blue & me and sterring mounted controls then better go for fiat original

    Hi All,

    Need help and suggestions. .

    About my car:
    I driva a Punto 90hp 2010 model.I have clocked 1.10lacs kms till date.

    Issue:

    Recently got my AC cooling coil replaced at Torque Fiat Gurgaon.After 2 days my ODO Started flashing and B&M stopped working.(there is no light glowing in usb)

    I had gone through the forum and tried all all the suggestions but none worked.

    Need your help guys in case repeating some trick will help.

    I had disconnected +ve terminal of battery for 45 mins

    I had also disconnected -ve terminal of battery for the entire night

    I had vsisted FASS and have got Scanning done

    FASS have checked the wiring its fine.

    B&M is still not working and ODO is blinking.FASS told me that the B&M needs to be replaced.

    After reading all the comments in forums i need auggestion on below points,

    Butyl AC pad which is at left vent needs to be refitted during AC installation???Is my B&M conked up bcoz FASS guys have not put the butyl pad???how do i check this???if this issue is due to negligence of fass i will screw them.and ask for a free replacement.

    Should i try battery terminal procedure once again and see???

    And if nothing works then is there is a option of getting B&M repiared outside at cheaper cost?

    It prevents condensation water from going into Blue and Me

    What a dumb design from Fiat. Should they have placed the B&M unit there where condensation is expected? They did that ok. Then shouldn't they seal the B&M unit properly so that it is waterproof? May be intentional design to kill B&M to force the customers to buy a new unit?! I seriously hate design engineers like this who keep their brains safely at home when they design such things!

    Thanks all for the help...
    I have got the b&m removed from my car and and have found that the same is not working bcoz of water logging.
