Don't think so. That's how it is setup.

Just saw the Celebration Edition Safari Storme pictures! DRL's on the front bumper look neatly integrated! Does anyone know if the hoodscoop is functional or just cosmetic?

Hoodscoop is just cosmetic. I was offered this for my storme, even with a matching paint job. All these accessories (DRLs, hoodscoop, bug deflector, etc) are available since few months at TASS. The only new thing is the sticker job. Seems that one really looks good on light colours, especially on the silver one.

Just checked again post lunch by switching on the ignition - showed 35 (about accurate).

I do not know if this is new or has been happening before, because I usually have the display set to Trip meter B (my mileage from last tankful) and run it like that.

Would appreciate the inputs of other old Stormers here please (as the new ones do not have the temp sensor).

Cheers, Doc
I hope you are aware that the temperature sensor is not an ambient temperature sensor but a vehicle body temperature sensor. It is used in colder climates to check what is the actual vehicle temperature before cranking (in snow bound regions). Considering this purpose, the temperature of 56 degrees after engine warm up seems reasonable.

I don't think that's correct.

That readout is of outside temperature.

Agreed. Even I thought and understood so. It seems the same is also mentioned in the review of Tata Safari Storme 2012 model which had this available as a factory fitment.

It says that it is for displaying the outside temperature.

Absolutely wrong.
It is indeed the External Temperature/Ambient Temperature. This thing is a plastic sensor and is fitted behind the passenger side behind fog lamp. It was removed from Storme from Aug 2014 and the display was not fixed hence always showed 0 degrees. You could buy a sensor off the shelf and fit it yourself since the harness was still there. Offlate with Storme 2015, even the harness and reading has been removed.
This is how the sensor looks and is about 1.5 inch in size

Hi,

Just wondering, is it possible to retrofit the temperature sensor and analog clock (dashboard) on the 2015 Safari Stormes?

Thanks.

I do not think it would be possible to retrofit the ambient temperature sensor. The single reason is that in the newer stormes the MID does not display the temperature reading at all as per me what I know. Correct me if I am wrong here? Even I am not sure whether they are still providing the wiring harness to attach the sensor now.

The harness and the display in the MID was still present in my beast wherein all I needed to do was to attach the sensor to the harness and the display was showing the correct temperature (which otherwise was showing 0 degrees).

For the analog clock, since the frame bracket is still present, I guess that would be an easy job.

Cheers!

Currently I am at the last leg of a 2000 km road trip. After a fuel refill in jaisalmer the engine malfunction light came on. What is the suggested course of action? My car is due for its first service.

Libra, do you feel a sudden loss of power? If not it should be fine and you can drive it to the nearest TASS and have it scanned for the error code.

Hi Bro, no loss of power. Both the car and the driver are quite energetic.

I drove 10 kms after the refill but don't think I noticed it then. Parked overnight and noticed it first thing when the engine came to life this morning.

Libra, In my old safari dicor I was advised by the TASS guy to do the following.Start the engine and stop as fast as you can and then again repeat the same for 2-3 times (do it real fast). It should erase the code. If there is no power loss and as long as the warning light does not reappear all is well.

For me it worked, but the warning light came back after some 250kms. Problem was with the pedal sensor.

This one was doing all the mischief. The air mass sensor.
