I had been facing this issue of car not starting sometimes (only after several attempts, the car would start, otherwise it would pretend to be dead).

So, in order to rule out battery problem, I just swapped battery from my Maruti Zen (which was just one month old). I think it is 35 Ah battery, but I am not 100% sure.
yes I figured out that it is 35 AH battery. I recently replaced to AMARON PRO 50B20L.

Great to see that Raju's shop has become sort of a mini meeting spot for BHPians.

It is always good to meet like-minded people to discuss what we do the best! Kudos to that friends.

Called the local TRW distributor to check availability of brake pads. I was so surprised to hear from him that "TRW does not make brake pads"!! Now, I'll have to find another decent brand of pads. Any recommendations?

SVR Motors replaced the PCB for this last month. Head-lights and blinkers are working perfectly now. It is apparently a known problem, am sure is a safety advisory.

They have the PCBs in stock and anyone with this issue can go and get it replaced. No charges for spare, I had to pay just Rs.183 for labour.

Gentlemen,
I've scheduled a service for my Cedia this coming Monday. Other than the regular stuff do i have to request anything in particular to be checked?

This will be my first service (its a second hand car for me) and the car has done 27,500 kms till date, so just wanted to know Cedia problem areas that should be addressed.

PS: The whining sound is still present but the guy at Mitsu told me when i had visited him 2 months ago that its not a big deal and will be taken care off when the car comes in for service.

Thanks and Regards,
Rajesh

Not sure what headlight problems you are referring to. Can you please elaborate?

Why the labour charge?? It is a factory recall, they pay for everything.

I got a thanks from Asian Motors for bringing the car in and an apology from their customer relationship manager since they could not wash my car as the workmen had gone for lunch.

My Car key remote has stopped working - i guess the battery is dead. Anyone knows what kind of battery it uses ? Probably i can just get it replaced from a watch repair shop instead of going to the service center.

CR1616

It is a simple DIY.
I am attaching pictures from last January last year. In November the battery drained off again from the spare key. So, the Maxell battery I got was pretty useless. So, I need to buy a new one again. I need to look for the Panasonic one shown in the picture or something equivalent this time.

Edit: It turns out there was some contact problem. After I removed the cell and checked the voltage it was 3.24 Volts. So, the battery seemed to be fine. Once I put it back and tested with the remote, it started working. So, Maxell is working after a year.

You could Try Brembo Pads, You get them locally and quite easily.

Why were you charged this is a company recall? Was anything else done?

Thank you Sir ! I dont have the screw driver to open the key - hence i am thinking i will go to a watch repair guy.

CR1616 - watch guys should have it right ?

Nothing else was done. If they replaced PCB without charge, obviously it is a known defect. I did ask it is safety issue and why haven't you informed me. I was told that they called many customers and I might have been missed out. Obvious lies, who will argue with SVR/ HM.

Symptoms: Blinkers work erratically, they blink sometimes, will switch off at times. Headlight will also switch off many a times and it felt like a loose contact issue.
It is actually a known issue to Mitsubishi for which PCB is replaced, combination switch/ contacts have no problems.

OK. Good to know the symptoms. I think I will skip it. The car has never given me that problem.
