Question re: Cheaper options: Spare parts for the Baleno sedan

Hi Friends,

I have the following issues with my Baleno VXI, 11 years old, done 60,000 km.

1. Not starting.

I had come back as usual from my 6 km city drive. As my sister's car battery was dead, I wanted to put my Baleno battery in her's to get it started. I managed to only disconnect the Negative lead of my Baleno batter but as the Positive was too tight, I connected the negative back. After that, I noticed that the front & back parking lights, dashboard lights would blink in the following cycle: 30 times on and off, then a pause and start's to blink again. This went on for 3 cycles and then it stopped. The red indicator light on the right of the steering would also blink but this was a fast blink.

I tried to start the car but the starter would not crank. I can hear a click when I turn the key but that's it, the starter does not crank. The battery is fully charged. Headlights, central locking, music system and fan are all working fine. The headlights don't dim even slightly so I am guessing power is not going to the starter. I checked all the fuses, both the main box in the engine bay and the fuses behind the dashboard on the driver's side. They all seem to be fine.

The car however starts with a push start. Btw, I do not use the remote for the last few years and open & lock the car manually so I am wondering if there is some Immobiliser setting?

Can anyone suggest what might be wrong?


2. Screeching noise from clutch?

Occasionally there is this screeching noise from the clutch I think. It always disappears on its own after driving just 100-200 meters or I clutch - declutch two or three time. There is no loss power when this happens, it's only the terrible, very attention grabbing noise!

Does this need a clutch replacement or is it something minor?


3. Suspension thuds ...

I feel the suspension has become weak and it goes into potholes with a thud. The car is otherwise behaves just as it did before expect for this part. In its entire life, I have never driven the car rough and have always taken lots of emotional mechanical care for it except for some very few of those unavoidable bumps & potholes during highway driving.

Requesting Bhpians to kindly advise on what needs to be done for the above. For now, I need to just get it to start.

Also, should I take it to MASS (thinking of Mandovi, Wilson Garden) or an FNG? Given the spare costs & labour costs at MASS, I am dreading the potentially fat bill. FNG would be also be fine. If FNG, can anyone recommend a good one in Bangalore? I live near Cant Rly station, but don't mind going far for my Baleno.

My thanks in advance for all the assistance,
musa

I don't have an explanation for the car not starting, but I think you should invest in a good jump-start cable (instead of switching batteries between cars).

Not an expert, but I don't think this is the clutch. Must be some belt.

Had a similar issue with my 10-yr 80k km Baleno and looks like the front suspension is gone. Getting it repaired currently - will update details on my Baleno thread in a day or two.

MASS might be costly. But anyway take it to them and ask them to give an estimate for fixing the above issues, then get the same from a trusted FNG. And make a decision. SGP spares might be costly and hard to come by.

sounds like your immobiliser, although i dont understand how it starts with a push.

Call the Nippon call centre (a Maruti dealer can give you the number). The nippon guy comes home and fixes your problem. I believe the Baleno antenna is also serviced by Nippon.

the screeching is from a belt probably.

Please keep us posted on the suspension bits.

This is the immobiliser, open a dash panel below the steering the immobiliser unit is available there it is a square flat box about 4 inches square. Disconnect it your central locking will work fine. This happens as the immobiliser is reset on battery disconnection, your siren is not working or it would be hooting too. The other way is to unlock the car with the remote.

On the screeching noise, do note that this can also be the Alternator belt being loose, get all belts tightened.

Are the thuds appearing on small uneven surfaces too, then it can be the lower arms.

Thanks ssingri for the inputs. It is exactly as you have mentioned.

I forgot why I was not using my remote. Both had stopped working. I fished them out, got a new battery for the remote and "managed" to unlock the car with the remote.

I say "managed" because even with the new battery in the remotes, they are not really working. The red indicator light on the remote barely flickers and that too very dim and erratically. So holding the remote on top of the dashboard and clicking the it several times, the car finally unlocked via the remote and I can start it without a problem.

I am mobile again and I like to know exactly what happened when I am in a situation. Thank you so much.

Looks like it is the alternator belt, because the noise disappears even if I just leave the car on idle after starting for a while with zero movement / use of the clutch.

Yes, to me it appears that the thud appears in places it should not. For example, when going over a speed breaker with a decent slope and even small potholes. Does it mean I may need to get the lower arms replaced?
Planning to take the car 1st week of Jan for service. So I am sure with Bhpians's inputs, I will be able to speak like a car geek to the service advisor. Thank you Shiv Shanker!

Opened the remotes of my Baleno and on closer inspection looks like some oxidation etc of the circuit. Here are the pics of the remote IC

Can the remote be repaired? If so, where do I go for this in Bangalore?
Can I get a new remote that will work with the already installed immobiliser? If so again, who & where in Blr?

My thanks in advance.

Call this number - 98450 - 67 One Eight Eight

I cant remember his name, but he is from nippon and will pair a replacement remote for you. It should cost you about Rs. 1000 - 2000 for a new remote.

Exclamation re: Cheaper options: Spare parts for the Baleno sedan

Hello All!

I have had a Baleno for the last 10 years and just completed 1L km in it! As all of you would agree, Its an amazing car and I plan to hold on to it for a few more years. Thankfully the engine is still strong and absolutely no issues there, however I think its time to get some serious overhauling.

I am planning to replace the brake pads, clutch assembly and the front suspensions.

I got a quote of 40k (should nt surprise a Baleno owner ) from MSM, Chennai.

Are there any other place apart from ABT and MSM that I can get this done at a lower cost?

I have always been servicing in either ABT or MSM and after a few incidents I have stopped servicing from ABT.

Anyone else have any other contact in Chennai?

Appreciate any help!

Cheers!
Varun
