    Hello Fiat Users.
    I am a newbie and have a weird problem. BTW I drive a Siena 1.2 (1999 model). Need advice and help from experts here.

    1. My speedo needle just climbs to 70 KMPH after a few minutes of driving the vehicle. and then it just freezes there. i may be driving at 40 or 120 - the speedo needle is at 70.

    a few taps on the dashboard gets it down to the correct speed, but after sometime again its parked at 70.

    Cant understand whats wrong....can some one help - any one faced similar problem.

    2. Any garage that understands Fiat cars and can service it properly..Fortune Nerul is not good, I have tried it twice and not willing to give my car to them for service. Anyone from this forum using or have used the Siena 1.2 petrol, please help me with these two aspects.


    Soumo.

    I have a similar problem with my bike. The speedo goes upto 140 and stays there even if I am doing only 40. Tapping it brings it back down, but then it goes back to 140 again. The service guy informed me that the damper inside the speedo is gone and the solution is to replace the entire unit.

    i think the speedo armature is getting stuck. these used to happen on mechanical types fitted on bikes and old maruti cars too. you can change the meter or get it repaired. there are meter repair walas who do this kind of job.
