I too had the same question for Sandev. The 2nd row doesn't seem to have good under thigh support. Were the 2nd row passengers comfortable? Were any tall people sitting in the 2nd row?

Thanks guys. Called Mahindra Helpline, they directed me to a service center which is not opened yet.

CEL is off now. What should I do? Is it safe to go ahead? There is no major town till Ahmedabad now.

I would suggest you get it checked once the service center opens and proceed, as you have mentioned that there are no major towns till Ahmedabad.

Ask them to run a diagnostic check and look for errors, if any. That will give you an idea what might have caused the CEL to come on.

Have a safe trip.

Even if the CEL is off right now, when the service technician attaches his laptop to the port, he can show show you why the light went on in the first place. Until he clears the error from his laptop, the error codes are stored in the ECU.

As long as there is no visible loss of power, drive carefully to the nearest service center and ascertain the reason. CEL coming on always doesn't mean that some thing is seriously wrong. So don't worry.

To answer all. I never get any complaint from the second row through out my journey. Infact I kept on asking them, knowing the second seat is not that comfortable. But no one complained.

Reason could be as both female passenger height's were in between 5'2" - 5'3". There were too many small luggage placed around there foot area and middle of seat. And almost through out the journey they had woolen clothes on, so may be they had good back support because of the heavy woolen clothes.

Yes I did my first service @ 2100 KM's and had done thorough check up before leaving for this trip. I usually do services much before the manual instructs. My earlier car, Punto suggest to do service every 15,000 KM but I used to do it around every 12 KMs. May be that's the reason it never troubled me till 1,55,000 KMs. There after we parted :(. I still miss my Punto.

ntomer - Some issue with boost pressure I assume. Please get it looked into via the OBD tool.

Please update whenever you come across the issue [once pinpointed & its cure]

Something similar had happened with my car as well, have a look (My Explorer: Mahindra Scorpio S10 4x4)

Thanks

Getting it checked at Nagaur Automobiles, Ajmer.

Helpdesk directed us to Rathi Mahindra showroom. There we came to know that their service center is somewhere else. We went there and came to know they don't attend to TUVs. They directed us to Nagaur and we are here right now.

One would expect Mahindra Helpdesk to have known this.

As long as the light is steady on, not to worry at all. As long as the car behaves normally just drive on and get it seen to in due course.

It could be something as simple as the filler cap not fitting properly. Actually this one is one of the most frequent sources of a CEL! Just check and retighten. It might take a while before the CEL resets.

If the CEL is blinking there is a more serious issue, which might lead to damage. So in that case is advisable not to drive on.

I must admit I have seen hundreds of CELs. There are millions of drivers who don't worry about their CEL at all, until they take their car for a regular service. In some countries it is a legal requirement no to have the CEL on in order to pass the MOT. So that's when people tend to get it fixed. They will also check if the CEL is in working order. I don't think I've ever come across a blinking one.

Remember your CEL is there for first and foremost environmental reasons. Not necessarily a problem for your engine as such.

The lights in the console are color coded.

1. Green / Blue / White - Informational
2. Amber - Warning - proceed carefully
3. Red - Fatal error - stop and rectify

CEL is always amber. Meaning proceed carefully. You can drive the car, but don't push it.

Very true, the information is useless if the service center is not equipped to deal with the issue.

ntomer, hope your return journey is safe and sound. Could you please pin-point the part/pipe? Though we can see the picture we cannot just make out.

Hi,

No return journey, I am on my way to Mumbai. Delayed by three hours due to all these chaos. Surat, my stop for tonight is still 80 kms away. Tomorrow, I will go to Udvada, and then Mumbai.

The part they place is that black rubber thingie on the grey pipe. They cut the pipe and put it there. It is some sort of modulator.

I have booked an appointment for service in Mumbai, I will ask for details there.

Cheers
