Restarting never happened on the Ikon, because of its loud silent engine noise and clear engine vibration which makes its presence.

But then, when we got our Santro, that very same day, I restarted the engine accidentally eeek! The Santro's engine is so silent compared to the Ikon. Engine vibration was hardly felt.

Shouldn't be a problem at all as long as it happens once in a blue moon.

Why not just blip the throttle, just to check before cranking ?

One more way of preventing this is to check the oil, battery, brake fluid indicators on the instrument panel. Ideally, once the engine has been started, these lights go off.

I second that rr_zen, battery light indicator will turn off if engine is in running mode....

ikon has a nice mechanism for the igniton key.. one has to completely go back that means switching off the engine if already on in order to start an engine. from a on state you cannot turn key clock wise and start.

My wagonR has no double cranking protection.

When double cranking, you are in danger of causing damage to the starter motor's teeth and the teeth of the flywheel.

When a running engine stalls, the indicators on the dash do not light up. (Hmm... will have to check up, will get back with more info on this later)

No problems with the Palio.

It does makes its presence known. For which I, a partially heavy-metal-induced-hearing-impaired man, am thankful for. Thank you Fiat, for making a rumbler of a car!

Ok. I was wrong on the above. The indicators - battery, oil, check engine, etc. light up when the engine stalls.

My friend, who drives NHC, shared this with me. Few days back he sat in the car, slotted into 1st gear and pressed the gas pedal. But the car didn't move . He then realized the car was not turned ON (he had got used the silent NHC engine ).

Am i missing something? for one, the palio is having protection against double cranking. If the engine stalls accidentally, u have to bring the key back to initial position and then crank again!

And also, i feel a stock Palio, is much more silent (at least in cabin) compared to ZEN(Now why dragged poor ZEN into this?, Well i guess ,its because some where i read that ZEN stands for Zero Engine Noise)
