    Try with the spare key before suspecting battery. most likely the transponder in the key is malfunctioning.

    Hi Manusankar, Thanks sir ji...Will do that . Any idea what voltage level i should be checking for, when i go for the battery check. Wil try if i find the same in these forums somewhere. By the way was thre any problem with your engine starting wen the issue happened with your car? Because car starts at the first turn of the key, no hassles thanks again

    Punto doesnt come with a maintenance free battery but with Lead acid battery (experts pls correct me if I am wrong). Over the period of running the lead acid plates tend to deplete and hence less charge holding capacity. Any amount of distilled water top up wont help. Only remedy is replace the battery with maintenance free battery.
