I think a re-call would be that they bring back the car to the dealership and get it checked- imagine if car majors had to replace all the million or so cars they would have gone broke LONG ago.

I guess it couldn't be a gimmick of any sort since a recall could show that they actually care for the customers but at a cost.
I presume its just to ensure that customers are happy and forums like these don't end up catching faults in this car and give it a bad tag....

a friend of mine came back from the service station today as he had gone to get his swift ddis checked.according to him,they were tampering/looking at the ecu and the main wiring harness,.and then the ecu was reflashed or something as he mentioned that they had connected it to some sort of a handheld/laptop,im guessing on the "reflashing" part..the technicians didnt let in on the problem though.

@hellspawn - Since your information is not first hand, please discard it.

I have been to Pratham this morning to get this checked and they checked the wiring harness to the alternator and it's grounding - I was told by a mechanic that the grounding was found to have a fault in some cars, so they are checking the whole batch, just to be sure.Mine was found to be normal. Surprise of surprises, they had already checked this at 2nd service a week back, but the supervisor I spoke to today failed to check it before repeating the exercise. I did notice them doing something out of the ordinary, but didn't know it was this. A seal is put in your service booklet, to denote that the check has been done.

This has nothing to do with the ECU. Period.

@hellspawn - I think I jumped the gun. I was just playing the second service through my mind and realised that they had disconnected the negative lead of the battery - Now, why would they do that, unless they needed to reset the ECU? Is it a normal procedure during service?

maybe your friend was right after all, though in my case, they did not touch the ECU at any point in time.

Default Swift Diesel - Problem re-call

I had my Swift VDi checked and got verified the same.. they claim there is some "Grounding wiring to be re-placed as per the Maruthi Suzuki Circular" if your vechicle is one among the problem re-call category.

It is decided only once the vehicle is checked and verified ....

Well Car has been check'd up and got the Problem rectified.. which took two-three hours.
