My safari carries me only till the parking. Is there a feature which can make it carry me home? My home is on the 7th floor and when lift is not working its real painful. Carry me home will be really good. How do we activate it?

Try daaru instead of diesel. The truck will then get high enough to carry you home.

Yes, its around 10-20 ft only, does not work more than that, maybe it needs new batteries?

Of all the things that Safari does, carrying you home is what it does very well!

Rohit, something similar had happened to a car of mine which turned out the temp sensor was left disconnected by a mechanic doing some repairs around that area.

Default Fuel cap release not working

1) For about a week, the electrical fuel cap open is not working having to open the rear door and use the cable tucked away inside the left side compartment.

Is this a electrical problem or a mechanical one that can be DIY ?

2) Rear door squeak gremlins turn up again. The Concorde Motors service center had put some thick packing for the door which seems to have worn off. What is a permanent solution to this bug ? I've seen the Mercs ML, VW Touareg have some support for the rear wheel on the tailgate. Can something like that be done for the Safari ?

thanks
Srinivas

Jay is asking for the feature that doesn't let others open their doors unless the driver deems fit.

Edit: time warp. just realized I replied to an ancient post of suman's.

Check if the sensor (its a small device behind front bumper on left side,looks like a small black lengthy bulb) is still there. Or maybe some wiring issue. Took me sometime to figure out what it was initially when I saw the sensor.

Maybe a minor wiring issue, but take it to your dealer and you will get a free new solonoid under warranty anyway.

Default HVAC - Heating system

I've observed that if the temperature knob has been set to extreme right (full hot), without turning on the fan or switching on HVAC *F* button, the air that blows into the car is HOT.

Is this the same in all cars Or is it a problem in mine?

Thanks in advance

Saw service light on for a sec or so. I knew why; was on tsk1979 mode for 3-4days. I get 13kmpl

Back to my driving style. Red lining on lower gears helped push the carbon out after a week.

It is same in all cars the HVAC button is to switch on AC compressor for cooling

How do some people get average of 14+ on Safari on highways ?
What is the safe and optimal Tyre pressure to get high fuel efficiency on safari ?

Max I got was 13.5 on highways on GQ while driving at 120 - 130 Kmph ? Tyre pressure 32F / 35 rear

On my recent coorg trip I got 11 on hill driving between 40 ~ 80 Kmph mostly in 2nd and 3ed gear and occasional fourth gear to control better on winding roads with tyre pressure 32F /35 R
and 12.5 in plains at around 120 Kmph+ on SH88 and SH17 with tyre pressure 33/36

There is a fuse for this in the fuse box in the cabin, check if its blown. If it's OK, sometimes the way the guys screw the fuel cap back on interferes with the release mechanism - a slight adjustment gets it back on.
