That surely points to some electrical issue. A wiring check is the way to go. There is definitely current leaking into the circuit from somewhere which should be corrected ASAP to avoid chances of a short circuit. Also, this is important because if any warning light comes on genuinely, it might go eventually ignored resulting in some serious damage.

Facing the issue of lack of adequate cooling at idling in my 5 year old Nano. Service advisor recommends changing of condenser fan and AC pressure switch for the price of nearly Rs. 4000.

Please advise.

I had the same issue. TASS guys initially misdiagnosed the problem with AC gas leakage (and suggested installing a new condenser) but later I pointed out that the condenser fan used to work only when given a nudge. Replaced it for a total cost of 2200. Problem never surfaced again.

Not sure why and if the AC pressure switch needs replacement. Maybe others can comment.

In my case, the fan along with its shroud was supposed to be covered under warranty but since it developed a small crack due a bumper dent, I was refused coverage.

The window washer fluid pipe cracks and breaks at the point where it comes out of the bonnet and goes under the wiper arm.

This is the place where the pipe is exposed to direct sunlight and is also chafed against the hole in the plastic guard when you operate the wiper.
My first pipe, the original rubber one, cracked in the first year and I replaced it with a plastic one. The plastic pipe gave up a month or so ago.

You can get the condenser fan motor changed outside the ASS. I had same problem in my 2009 nano last year, replaced the motor for around Rs1500 and cooling improved with some AC gas top-up.

thanks for your help guys. My car's AC is cooling perfectly. It cuts off completely only at signal when engine is idle. May be only changing the fan motor will work.

Interesting that only days after I read about this in your post, my windshield washer fluid pipe breaks all by itself.

Mine broke from an unlikely spot, however. Poor quality, I guess.

Sorry, I seem to have missed your post! It's fairly simple to remove the air intake. You have to take the clips off of the inlet cover (they're on the edges of the cover) with a flathead screwdriver and inside this cover, there is another cover which has been glued in a bit. Remove that and you can clean and put everything back.

Gave the Nano for the first year service at the new dealer at Trivandrum - Trivandrum Motors. They are a small dealership, but I was really amazed by the quality of work done. And since I had taken the silver care package, it was a zero bill job

Same problem with my ac was fixed when the sensor was cleaned. Obviously before that the Tass recharged the gas and fleeced money from me.

I visited the Concorde Workshop yesterday and had the condenser fan changed. Was told that the fan had wear out was the cause. The issue has been resolved and had the car back in 2 hours.

It cost me about Rs. 2450 total. Its now chilling at its best and airflow is better too

The AC blower of my 2011 Nano stopped working sometime ago. Got it replaced under warranty. From past few days, the self was misbehaving, I thought that battery was the culprit, got it replaced only to find that the starter was at fault. Gave the car to my local mechanic today, will update about the proceedings.

My younger brother's 1 month old nano genx is in workshop from last two days for battery light blinking.

As per him if the hazard light switch is On, the battery indication light starts blinking even if the key is not in the keyhole. And as per the ASS it is a feature.

Can anyone here confirm the same in their Nanos Gen x.

My father accidentally added water to the petrol tank of the Nano thinking it is the windshield water tank inlet.

To make matters worse, the car was started and driven for less than 10-12 meters. Thankfully the water does not seem to have gotten in the engine yet as the car must have utilized the fuel in the fuel lines.

I've instructed everyone at home to not even turn keep the car on ACC as the fuel pump might still suck some water in. I will tow the car to an authorized service center after I get back in town in some days.

Is it alright to leave the car as it is for 2-3 days until I arrive or is it imperative that it is towed right away? I'm guessing rusting won't become a problem in just a couple of days time?

Hopefully getting the fuel tank and fuel lines cleaned should do the job.

Definitely not the case in the previous gen Nano.

There is a recall for a batch of 2015 Nano for replacing the wiper wash fluid pump. Got it replaced in 15 mins. It retails for less than 250/- and looks similar to the small pump used in M800. Consider how costly a similar replacement would be for a upmarket car - I guess some only allows you to change the tank and pump together since its fused together.

Default Re: TATA nano - List of ALL issues

Hello,

My 4 years old Nano LX went dead after driving 2km. When it went dead, the Malfunction indicator and temperature indicator had turned ON.

After turning off the key and again cranking it, the engine was alive and no warning lights were ON.

Again after couple of KMs, same thing happened.

Somehow, my wife reached home driving the car on very low speed.

Next day, we took it to Tata service center where the scan showed coolant temperature sensor failure. The sensor was replaced (cost about INR 312/-). Coincidentally, we had an appointment for scheduled service same day, hence a paid service was also completed.

After getting the car back, we have observed that the power is lacking.

Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.
