There was a small oil tube provided with the lock but i never used it so when I took it out that night it was semi solid. After struggling had a brain wave to use some lubricant so used the engine oil from the dip stick and it worked. After that experience I am using a Sewing Machine oil (got it from a neighbourhood tailor)

Seniors,

My Sarge after a 615 kms drive from Chennai - Palakkad, shows the OIL Pressure Lamp with the VMS telling "Oil Pressure is Low". Reported this to Mahindra Care, being Sunday ITL Motors Palakkad representative sent me a Junior Mechanic after 3hrs of waiting. The Junior checked the Dip stick and verified there is enough amount of Oil and declared this could be a faulty sensor at play. Today (Monday) I drove the vehicle over to the dealership as requested. Service guys took around 2hours to remove the sensor (complaining the engine heat and less space). The latest finding is that the oil is not reaching the sensor (I am not sure why). The investigation is on to look for oilline blocks? What could be wrong?

Will keep you posted as and when I know more. @Spike arrestor, any leads or clues?

Is the sensor OK? Reason can be anything from a clogged oil filter / oil cooler / oil strainer / relief valves stuck / clogging in the line etc. Let them check the oil flow circuit.

Would not such a block in the oil circuit damage the engine due to low/non existent lubrication? Reminds of the case of a forum members Safari, which required an engine change after it seized due to faulty/malicious service at the Authorised Service Centre.

^^ Let us see what the analysis says about this case. What went wrong and why needs to be ascertained first.

It has been 5 hours of troubleshooting and the supervisor tells me he has not found any problems to their surprise. Does it take so long to identify this or is it that ITL is learning the troubleshooting on my Scorpio? I am really not sure. Oh my god, really wish there is something they could identify sooner.

With the sensor removed they checked of oil is splashed out when idling. No OIL. Revved a little bit and the oil splashes out. Cleanup the oil spil, they changed the oil filter and checked to see nothing changed. Finally picked up the service manual and they are now going by the troubleshooting methods mentioned in it. So not sure of how long it would take. Man this is killing me now! They confirmed no damage to engine has happened (not sure how they can say so). Also during the 615 kms run if oil pressure was low, I should have got some indications (nothing I saw till the nextday morning).

Are you at ITL Motors, Calicut? Or is this a newly setup dealership in Chennai? I am aware of India Garage, MPL Saligramam and the one at Ambattur (in Chennai) .

ITL palakkad is where I am. Status as of now: removed oil sump, forced air into the stainer - checked oil leaks - none found - removed cooler - forced air - no leaks - only thing left out is to see what is going on with Oil pump - they do not have a spare here - getting it from Thrissur - will run into tomorrow I think.

Will PM my phone number.

after all these ordeal the service manager asks me if I could source the OIL pump for them! Poor service Mahindra Very very poor!

It is not an old outdated model, nor its is some rare part that we are looking for. Oh man, I should write to Mahindra (already reported to Customer care)

Not surprising for M&M, even smallest parts like switches are not available and procuring takes ages leading to regular followup and multiple trips to the A.S.S..

The right rear door PW switch of my Scorpio is not working. It does not lift up the PW.The window is static in the present position and its good that the glass is in the closed position.The other three switches are in fine working condition.
What could be the cause of this one switch not working?

Happily, there are many "accident" vehicles which are a good source for such "non-essential" parts. I have got things like filler caps and switches that way. My friend recently waited almost 6 months to get a dashboard panel (damaged in an accident) which was not in stock (because it was a particular shade)

Step 1: Bang the door hard with your fist from the inside and try. Sometimes the motor just needs a little nudge.

Step 2: Check at the service center if there's any dust inside the switches. Clean it up, try again.

Step 3: They will open the entire door panel from inside and check the motor itself.
