    I drive a Figo when I am in Kerala. All doors unlock the moment I turn off the engine.
    My Punto doesn't. After turning of the engine, central locking is open only by pulling the lever from either front doors. I thought the automatic unlocking when turning off the engine poses a risk in certain situations like this. Robbers stopping the car in the night on Bangalore roads. All doors will be open the moment the car is switched off.

    Now Butta Automotive, Hyderabad says BCM is not covered under extended warranty. Fiat warranty expired just 3 months back. Anybody from this forum got BCM replaced under extended warranty? My car was always serviced at FASS as per the schedule.

    AFAIK, It should be covered. Check the EW booklet

    I have own 2009 GP EP and 2012 Linea Dynamic, it doesn't unlock if you turn off the ignition...it's a manual process.
    i believe there is something wrong or someone programmed it as a test feature in the factory... Usually some cars do go out of factory as real life mules to check the feedback..open secret...

    I remember when I owned TVS Champ in Hubli back in 1990's the front and back breaks came with break switch which lit up break lights on the tail lamp upon pressing the break levers.

    my Friend who bought same model after 6 months didn't have this feature.... He checked with the dealer (Ratnakar Automobiles Hubli) and they made fun of him that TVS doesnt come with that feature !! Neither they have any idea.
    his tail light didn't have the slot either to fix another bulb where as mine had it...

    EW booklet says "body computers" are covered. I am going to take a copy of it to the service station tomorrow. Hope they don'e give a different meaning to the "body computers".

    Im thinking that the SA looked up in the air and shot at bullet that it is not covered. Never ever trust them for anything.

    If your service history is clean, nothing should stop u from getting the EW approved.
