    my fiat Linea (E) MJD has recently developed starting trouble which is random in nature. i have observed a whenever there is a starting trouble it is preceeded by a low intensity continious clicking sound. the trouble happens even after the engine has sufficiently warmed up, as a result i have stopped turning off the engine at long traffic signals, something i often did to save fuel.
    has anyone faced such a trouble?

    Ya once i had come across with this problem, whenever i used to give ignition all the needles used to dance & tik tik noise used to come & car refused to start. Actually it is a battery problem, just tell TASS to check your battery as it would have drown down, recharge it & the car wil be fine as in my case it was so.

    I have faced similar problem in my GP MJD Active. The engine had a cold start problem. I had it resolved once by the RSA guy when the car refused to start at all. This was within 1 month of purchasing the car. Later after few days the problem came back, I had to crank it several times before it started. One not-so-fine morning suddenly the engine check symbol was lit up starting the car after several attempts. I rushed to a TASS and they have checked the whole engine part by part. The actual problem in my case lied with a relay and the fuse which were replaced under warranty. They found the problem by inter-changing each relay from an ECU of another active GP and finally found the fuse and relay to be faulty. Now I donot have any more problems with starting.
    Please visit a TASS asap and have a check for the ECU too.

    If Tik Tik sound & no response from starter motor then It is starter Relay problem.
    Just like problem of our 2 wheeler Starter Relay.

    I heard that if there is any kind of charging issue, it would be shown in the ODO display. Any idea on this .?

    Yes it is called as EOBD. (Electronic On-Board Dignosis).
    When there is any engine error, your digital display will show the error name.

    I also faced a starting problem in my Punto MJD which was random in nature, the problem is cleared by changing the Self motor .
    My car is only 8 months old and it was under warranty
