    OK. Just for the heck of it, here is something to look at:

    PS: This was done with parking brakes on, driver side door open and engine turned off :D

    Is it some sort of self check?
    how do we activate it in Linea?

    OBDII USB adapter + Multiecuscan :D

    I was even able to get the "Glow Plug warning" light on in my T-Jet :evilsmile

    On a more serious note, I found some stored errors and cleared all of them. I also did a Proxi alignment, and finally after almost 1 year of ownership, my odo has stopped blinking. Also found a way to disable seat belt warning, but left it enabled ;)

    Rajan, is it possible to enable the low fuel light the same way?

    I am talking about the actual light with the fuel pump symbol and not the usual yellow circle.

    Not sure what light you are talking about. There is no such LED in my dash at least. There is an Fuel Bowser icon, but that does not have a light. Please post a picture of your console, marking which one you are talking about.

    See the icon near the door ajar icon. Am talking about that. My hunch is that it is just not enabled in the Indian version and hence the LED should very much be there. Your thoughts? bezupu2u.jpg

    Sorry, I couldn't mark the icon as I am on my phone.

    Got it. My console is different though and I do not have that icon/led. Just tried selecting Grande Punto 1.3 MJET 16V and the actuator menu options in the Marelli Instrument Panel are different. I have no way of confirming if it actually works, unless I have access to a GP to which I can connect the scanner / software / laptop.

    From what I observed with the T-Jet, I was able to test Brake wear warning ( the one to the left of ABS, right below the 'Zero' on the speedo.), Glow Plug and Water in Fuel lights, though none of the functionality actually exists. My guess is that the console is same across variants and those that are actually fitted in the car are active and the others just exist, with no real purpose.

    In the Linea,after the yellow low fuel light comes up,there is another warning in the MID with a Beep.
    A punto should have it as well.

    That is a verbose warning on the MID, which reads "Low Fuel". I guess that would be available.
