    Hey my issue got solved. It was the problem with one of the relay. When I explained my problem, mechanic Ayub from continental automobiles instantly said its the problem with the relay. He interchanged the relays & car is perfect now!

    Great Kailas. Good to note that there are people who can diagnose problem and give a solution. Can you tell in detail how it occurred and the root cause?

    @OP: If everything is ok with the starter motor and the alternator, get the relays checked. This problem had wreaked havoc on my car for a whole year. The culprit turned out to be a faulty relay.

    I had a problem with my high beam last month. To fix it, I went to a local mechanic. Seems like he messed up with the placement of relays.

    Hi ,

    I am facing this peculiar starting problem in my Punto . The car starts in 1 go sometimes and sometimes it takes 2-3 cranks . The battery has been replaced a month back , starter motor is good according to FASS . So what could be causing this ?

    PS : Punto has covered 1 lac kms , 4 years old

    @ranconteur, please see the previous posts in this thread, it might be a problem due to the relay as well.

    Replace fiapl with fiat.

    But sending emails to higher ups for small issues might be not be much of use. I suggest try other service center in your area and get it checked properly.

    I am facing the same issue and my punto is 5 yrs old (71K done). Suudenly i park my car and when i come back it does not start, I give it a break of about 30 mins or so and it starts well. I took it to FASS but they are saying cant advice until and unless it happens in front of them. However i am being advised by a technician there to get the solonoid switch replaced in starter motor.
    Guys can you put some more details of the relay fault here? which relay need to be checked?
