Yeah he replaced his battery recently, I think he needs to clear the error from MASS.

This sound is somewhat similar to Punto's engine boom sound, or may be it is a Fiat manufactured engine in my car.
My ZDI Dec'11 has the exact characteristics. Showed to 3 ***, and also filed a compliant to Maruti(referred back to ***).
The service manager showed me another 4 ZDI/VDIs, which has the same issue, so called it as character.

Go to a service center and use the scanner to scan and clear off the errors. If the light still persists you need to drain the water from the diesel filter. Yes this is water in fuel indicator.

Lately sometimes my tachometer shows values which is approx 400 RPM more than the real reading. This is intermittent but when it happens all I need to do is to switch off the engine (the tacho still remains say at 400 RPM) and then again switch back to the ignition mode. This seems to fix the problems.

Any idea if this can be fixed or this indicates an omen of something going wrong with ECU?

You need to get it cleared from MASS.
I guess,you should be fine after that.
Does it stay on, even after the car is started ?
Yes it does.

Thank You. I shall visit Mandovi and get this done.

So does this happen everytime you change the battery?

If the indicator is on even after the engine is started, then you have water in your fuel filter. Visit MASS at the earliest.
I asked the same question few posts ago, jaggu confirmed that the indicator will go off after the engine is started in case of battery issue.
If indicator remains on, even after the engine is started, confirms water in fuel filter. When was the fuel filter last changed ?

It can be just an error due to the earlier faulty battery OR it can be water. So dont take chance.

Never heard of this issue before, maybe a loose connection or a RPM sensor going bad. Best bet is to get it checked at a workshop. ie if this is happening at idle. If its during running, good idea to get the clutch checked.

Since the tacho needle stays at 400 when you switch off the engine, I suspect this is a mechanical problem with the tacho meter itself. If you don't have any idling issue or actual engine rpm fluctuations, the sensors and the ECU are just fine. How old is your swift? Try to get the console replaced if it is under warranty.

A similar problem happened with me. The idling RPM shown was lesser by 200 at first (showed 600) and gradually showed no reading. All of this intermittently.

It was diagnosed as a faulty instrument cluster and was replaced under extended warranty.

I didn't read carefully I guess, meter showing when shut down = definitely console issue. Since these are electronic units not much to check on mechanical front I guess.

According to the SA at Mandovi, the sensor needs to be changed and it will cost around 2K. He says it is not an major issue and i can go around with that light.

Might not be a major issue, but get it changed. You will never know when that sensor will come to your rescue
