But the sound comes even when the AC is off?

If yes, its simple , Its the Thermostat switch doing its Job Properly. The A/C compressor cuts off ( Klick ) during interim intervals once its achieved its cooling. That is absolutely normal

Did about 60 kms this morning and seems like the sound has vanished. Used ac for the entire stretch.

Now as pavan suggested I think that sound had something to do with thermostat switch?

Just read elsewhere that Tata now recommends and used Petronas 5W-40 for Safari's. And that there's a new ECU upgrade.

Thank you.
I think the FICD (FAST IDLE CONTROL DEVICE) switch of your Fuel Injection Pump is either having a loose connection or has stopped working. This switch increases the RPM of the engine when the ac is switched on. I hope this helps.

Hi all,My safari has developed a strange noise which is coming from the engine bay recently.the sound that is heard iscan be described as "if you would shake a bunch of keys on a keychain". I have captured a video of the same. Please try and give me a hint as to what it might be from as I will be taking the Safari to the TASS tomorrow.

@richie4u, ask the mechanic to look for loose metal clips-the kind they use for clamping fuel/hyd lines. One or more could have come loose and may be vibrating on the pipe line.

Use that to pull out the fuse.
Turned out exactly as you explained! Thanks. The Cigar fuse was in the fuse box on the right hand side of the steering, nicely documented on the flap, nicely color coded as well as specs written on each of them. Was fairly easy to change.

If such need arises at night or so, one should keep a torch handy.

Will refill the spare one whenever I pass by a TASS next time.

The part No.10 Solenoid Switch may be the culprit. I show the section from the Tata Dicor Service Manual here.

A quick way to fix this is to put the vehicle in neutral, then roll it a bit, and then engage gear. Then do it backwards with reverse gear.
1-2 such movement frees the stuck valve, and the car starts without issue.
If you have 4-5 people handy, put the vehicle in gear and rock back and forth.
Thanks guys

The tata breakdown service people came and started after a few pushes.

They got the starter motor serviced at MICO too and it seems to work fine now and the self has become shorter now.

All this costed 1200 Rs.

BLACK1 - i just got my mechanic to check the issue and he said you are absolutely correct,going to check the wiring in a couple of days as i am travelling,also one more advice that i would greatly appreciate is that the ac does the cooling only when the blower is set at highest speed, ie 4 and after cooling whenever i reduce it to speed 3 or 2 it stops cooling. Any idea why this happens?

I got my safari serviced few weeks back, the car was fine then, after 2 days of servicing, minor oil leakage has started, took it back to service center and complained about the same, they said it will be rectified, next day i took the car, it was peefect, again few days back, the leak problem has started, checked power steering oli, break oil and engine oil. Everything seems to be fine. Not sure about the oil leak, where is it leaking from? Which oil could it be. Need help, suggestions. Man its just 7 months old.

P.S its not a major leakege, just few drops.

My Safari passenger side rear window has all of the sudden got life of its own. It's roles up automatically, when the window is closed it starts to make kat kat noise. I am leaving to Dharmastala tomorrow morning hence don't have time to visit the work shop.
Is there any DIY method to fix this.

Please note it is just a month old vehicle.

Thanks

There seems to be a short in the power window switch or near the motor itself, the khat khat noise is the motor action even after the window is closed as the power is not being cut off, I would advise you visit the service centre to rectify, if you are not going to unwind the window, you could close the window and then pry out the switch and disconnect the leads temporarily.

You have to open the door pad anyhow. There is a connector for the switch, and a connector for the winder ('regulator' in Tata parlance) motor. Disconnect the motor connector and wrap some foam over it (stay it with a rubber band) so that it doesn't rattle.

Thanks Hari and DerAlte,
Sorry I don't have time to remove the door panel but I managed to remove the fuse that connects the problematic window. Now the switch does not work ie. I will not be able to bring the window down, thats fine till I finish the trip. Rest 3 power windows are working. I suppose this work around will not cause any problem till I vist the service centre next week?

New issue to report. I am at Dharmastala right now and the Safari refuses to get into reverse gear. Full family is involved in pushing the ship.
