I am guessing it was changed later. Owners of newer vehicles please confirm.

Saw some relays from below the footwell panel in what seemed to be a fuse panel.

Removed 3 screws that was holding the panel and somehow managed to pry open the cover. You need a chunky screwdriver or a ratchet driver to remove the screws as it was pretty tight. Remove the panel from the right corner and believe me, it is not an easy job.

15A fuse for the 12 power outlet was blown.

Overall a very tedious job for a simple fuse replacement. May be the reason why the location was changed later.
How much power can I take out from these 12v socket.? I am planning to get an inverter for one socket so was wondering if I can charge my laptop and camera using inverter.

You can easily charge a laptop or camera from these power outlets. I think the maximum power which you can draw is 120W

The 30k service doesn't require Engine air filter or oil change. Stay vigilant against engine coating or AC cleaning, and the bill amount will be within 2.5k to 3k.

For me it was around 10k but engine oil and front brake pad was changed. Last oil change was more than a year ago hence got it done.

I've been using this inverter for a few years with my XUV 500. It works just fine. It is rated for 300w appliances but I don't think I have used it for charging devices other than cell phone and notebook.
http://tropicoolindia.com/product/kv...inverter-300w/

I'm planning to get the other inverter (http://tropicoolindia.com/product/10...inverter-24-v/) from the same company that is rated for devices up to 1000watts but that needs 24v input it seems, I'm trying to figure out what should I be doing to get that kind of input, an additional battery or something!!
Has anyone got any idea how to get the 24v dc in the car? My plan is to use a 400w blender in the car while on road trip.

I got poor service done by anant cars, banerghatta road, bangalore. Within 1000 km of run post service, ac is not working, rear suspension making noise, service due warning on screen. I was happy with anant cars, new airport road, Bangalore. Will stick to them.
