Dear Sir, Now since your car came with factory installed central locing all you have to do is get branded HALF KIT of central locing costs around 2800/- or so which has audio alarm as well as keyless entry remote that too two nos. Igot it for my Accent CRDI. about 3 years back it comes with 3 years unconditional guarrantee.

Mine's done about 4100 Kms and I need to get the 1st service done. Since Mahindra is giving 3 years warranty, they must have set the first service at 5k definitely knowing something.
Thanks for replying MileCruncher, am glad to know you're going through your first service before me I'd love to hear about the first service when it happens, perhaps I'll be better prepared for Moby's first service then.

Cheers,

So in 24 hrs, I had to get back to the showroom and get the Nippon guys to come themselves and replace the entire wiring and kit. Needless to say, I was pretty agitated and let it be known in no uncertain terms that I was displeased with Mushir's carelessness.
hi sriku,
here is my experience
we (family) have a slx bought 29-10-09 (within 8 days of our accident in our scorpio) at our local showroom owned by Mr. VILASRAW DESHMUKH (ritesh deshmukh's father,lol or was he CM of maharashtra cant recall ), so could not use force or call any one or may be i could have called Delhi.

the owners manual says that a buzzer can be fitted to system so ordered a scorpio buzzer so orderd one ,but after 7-8 months still no buzzer.
the customer care head bhattacharya subrata so when he came to my city he called me to show room ,called some one in front of me & told me that the buzzer installation is not possible.
when i showed the manual he laughed & told me that its just a misprinting.
i will have to install a after market system with no warranty on vehicle.

(the detailed thread here (help for bolero central locking buzzer))(& my father is seriously thinking to sell the vehicle due to a 700 rupee part)
some questions for you
  • where did you installed autocop?
  • is showroom ok with install (violation of warranty)?
  • costs for the ignition lock and the door locks change.
thanks in advance
& lets pray for our mahindras.

I have read in the past the simplest way to immobilize a vehicle is to remove the distributor cap or something and keep it at home at night. Is something like this possible in the Bolero?

Sir, firstly am agitated that you are having to face similar non-cooperation from Mahindra showroom guys. I had to bully them into cooperating, and they were compliant after I called many senior guys from the Sales to the Factory itself. Answers as below:

Autocop was installed from the Showroom itself, this kit is Mahindra OEM sourced from Nippon, so no voiding of warranty. The part number is 0114AK0030N for the KIT Lock with COMM. The part number for the central locking is A_1457CEO. They cost 1193.79 and 4888.88 respectively. The ignition lock and door locks totally costed 1193.79 and come as a full set.

The showroom guys have no problem with the installation, and do it themselves. I got the Nippon guys to do it for me at the showroom because the showroom guys did a shoddy job the first time around.

Please do not listen to anybody who says the buzzer can't be fitted. It is a plain untruth, you are welcome to drop by my place and I can show you my installation. If you are in Mumbai or Thane at any time, please visit the Global Gallarie showroom on Ghodbunder road, this is where I purchased my SLX and got all the installation done. I will try to source the Nippon guys number for you and PM you, so you can call them to your residence for installation directly. Please do not give up on the Bolero, I have driven from Mumbai-Bangalore-Chennai-Bangalore-Mumbai this past week, and it has been superb. Hoping everything works out for you.

Cheers

Mahindra Bolero

Vehicle Tracker

Keep a tight leash on your Bolero anywhere in India.Mahindra now helps you to track your vehicle by forwarding your lost vehicle's details to Mahindra dealers across India. They will intimate you in case the vehicle reports to their service station for service or repair. All you have to do is fill the form below and we’ll take it from there. Just one more reassurance that we’re with you, hamesha.

Unfortunately, when I bought and registered my Bolero, when I entered my VIN, the site could not identify it as a Mahindra product. Perhaps their server updates happen once a year.

These practices were and somewhat even today very prevalent in the petrol cars of the yore, when there were no gear locks or remote locking security systems along with the engine immobiliser.

The only security gadget used to be a very crude and longish contraption that used to be fixed on the brake pedal and the steering and locked with any lock available in the market.

It was then that people started removing the ditributor cap while parking for longer durations and take with them.

Now the diesels don't have any such system hence not possible.
