Car's fine and has done 42*** KM. Still didn't change the Engine Oil, may do it a week later.

Bought Motomax Carnauba Wax @ INR200
Motomax Dash Polish @ INR75 in Punnam's Shop.

Will post on their effectiveness later.

Exclamation Electrical Problem

First, I walk towards the car pressing the unlock button, nothing happens. So, I think "Time to change the Remote Battery and Did it promptly"

Next, this night I walk to wards the car and unlock, works perfectly but the RH Rear Indicator does not glow on unlocking. I supposed the bulb must have gone kaput and proceed in the car.

Later on, while I was taking a right turn, I switch the RH turn signal and it glows with a greater frequency. I cross checked it with the LH turn signal which is normal.

While I was driving, the headlamps go off and on suddenly. (Just before this happened, I switched the A/C on)


The Latest changes to the car,
LH Rear Light Assembly Replace, Remote Battery Change.

I checked all the fuses and they are fine, correctly placed.


Has anyone encountered such a situation? If yes, please reply.

Thanks!

Hey, What about the accidental repair? Did you avail insurance. And what about the electrical issue?

I didn't get the accidental repair done as there was an unfortunate death incident in our family, so we had to have the car with us.

The electrical issue was sorted out. It seems the frequency of the front RH indicator increased due to the non working of rear RH indicator. Once the rear RH indicator was set right(loose wiring), the frequency got normal.

Default 46K REPORT: A Solemn Promise - Chevrolet Spark M200

46K KMS REPORT GOES AS FOLLOWS:

I over threw the service by, well, a lot of miles. But I've got it done anyway.

A Solemn Promise - Chevrolet Spark M200 - 41K kms Report-img_1202.jpg

Mobil Super - 5W30 - 3.5L
Castrol Coolant - Water Based - 3L
TVS - Girling - DOT4 - 0.5L
Castrol - ATF Dex II - 0.5L
Purolator Filter - Same as Maruti 800

This was the first time I got my service outside GM Service as my 3Y Promise was completed.Regarding the Engine Oil, I bought all of the above in Vicky.in and got completely confused with Mobil Super and Mobil 1 . Acutally ordered a Bosch Engine Oil Filter, but it wasn't available said vicky, so got a Purolator one. Also, I ordered a Castrol DOT 4 Brake Fluid, but that wasn't available even, so Vicky sent me TVS Girling.

Refer to Post#80 here for experience with Vicky.in (Vicky.in's online automotive store. EDIT : Poor reviews & customer service on Pg.3)

TYRE UPGRADE: 175/60 R13 BS POTENZA GIII
Yes, they are still on 4.5Js. Planning to get alloys ASAP. Anyway, the ride on plain roads is not only nicer, but quieter. Yet when it comes to potholes and all it bangs a little harder. Braking, grip have improved as expected the tires kinda lock the car down to the ground. . I'm still understanding the Steering sensitiveness, which got changed due to wider track I suppose.

Hi emeinenttismo,

Greetings from a fellow spark owner! This was the car I learnt to drive on.
My long term ownership is up on team bhp. Have a look at it and see if you find it helpful. The car has just crossed 90k kms and is up for service on monday.
Let me know if I can be of any assistance.

Thanks
