I've to go tomorrow to get the fog lamp fitted, and thinking of doing alignment also there itself. Last time I did at Tyre Empire, it was around Rs.600 for alignment and balancing (rotated also in the process).

Sharanappa also agreed that the angles are different in the Safari and the outside guys may not do a correct job with it, as you said, TASS is a better option.

According to my knowledge i have got my Safari's wheel aligned by Concorde, Mysore Road and they had done it with the OE Alloy wheels, never had such complaints.

Default Safari CHECK ENGINE problem

Posting this on behalf of a friend. He has been breaking his head over this for a while now so any help is appreciated.

I have a 2010 (August) Safari Dicor. From last one month the check engine indicator turns ON intermittently. Strange part is that no error is logged in the ECU. When the service center guys plugged in the laptop to see errors, nothing was displayed. Even service center guys were surprised at this. Then the vehicle was put under observation. Service center guys took a guess that the cluster meter has issues as fuel gauge looked suspicious. But when I used it for some days and filled fuel, it looked alright.

But still after few days the indicator started glowing again. I felt the issue could be due to up-modulator, that was fit by the dealer, as it was behaving erratic. An up modulator should close all the windows when the doors are locked but it was closing (sometimes) even when unlocked. I got the fuse removed for this up-modulator to check if the issue was related to this due to some problem. But the indicator again started glowing.

The most surprising part of this problem is that there is ABSOLUTELY no degradation in vehicle performance or emission which is associated with a CHECK ENGINE indicator. I have never felt any difference in driving it. I have almost driven 1000+ kms since this has started. Off late the frequency has increased the Check Engine indicator turns on almost for every 10 kms. I have a feeling may be there is some problem that is building up?

So looks like there is no clue to this problem. I have asked the service guys to call technicians from Tata motors if they can’t find the problem.I would like to know if anyone has faced similar issue and have any suggestions/thoughts for this.

Friends, both trip meters on my Safari automatically resets back to zero after 1999kms. Is that the case in everyones Safari, or has mine failed in maths..??

It is same for me. The trip meter is 3.5 digit LCD. So the 1000th digit can only show the number "1"

I had this "no degradation" check engine light issue. However, there was an error code logged. If no error code is being logged, it could be a problem with the power connector of the check engine light.
If check engine light is coming on due to ECU flagging an error, its always logged

Hi all,

I wanted some advice form you'll, well the situation is that my car is completing two years in the first week of August so it means its 4th service is here. So my question is can I get the car serviced this week itself mainly because I will be going to Bangalore in the last week of July so I thought that it would be safe to get it serviced before the trip so these A.S.S. guys do service the car a month before right? Also should I get it done before or not, the car has completed somewhere around 22K.

Your service is due at 30,000kms, get it done. If you get your car serviced before that, you will need to pay, it won't be free service.
At 30K you will anyways need to get a service done because if you "technically" miss a service, the extended warranty guy will deny extended warranty.

Friends, my ac filter has not been cleaned since the day I purchased the vehicle. I dont think they do it during the scheduled free services either.
Can someone tell me where this filter is located, how to access it and is it a DIY..??

No at-least in Bangalore they do not charge for taking service early , All they need is coupon from service booklet , but it will be better to find from A.S.S involved because the decision seems to be on the A.S.S.

Last year August I got free service even one month later then due date as I called and informed the required number of KM are not done and manager agreed and fixed a later date.


@jay : If you are asking about in-cabin AC filter then I think it does not exists in Safari .

However you can ask service guy to clean the AC coil / condenser etc in engine bay with water.

Yes, i was referring to the in cabin ac filter. Have been reading of a few car owners doing a DIY, so i thought it existed for the Safari as well but have not heard mention of it anywhere on this thread.

Can someone please confirm if an in cabin ac filter exists in a Safari or not. If yes, where, and how to DIY.

Thanks.

LOL, AC filter? Safari is the car which bathes you with outside dust even with your circulation mode set to internal, and you are talking about in car filter?
No such contraption exists.
There is a flap, which opens and closes as per the circulation mode.

I was referring to Concord Service at Begur, not the Mysore road facility which both of you visit. For me that facility is at least 10 kms more, one side.
