yeah....but the key hole is way back "hidden low" & wish the light stayed ON, till the key was inserted. No point in showing us the light to the "hole" for a few seconds & expecting us to do a "path recall"

The beedings we put hour hands around the windows and could not feel any air coming in .... i know a very basic test but at 9 PM on Gt road this is the only thing we could think of
Wow! is it the 2.2L or 3 and 2008 model?

I think that the keyhole light is linked to the roof mounted lights which in turn are linked to the doors. If the doors are opened the keyhole lights would remain on.

So would you be getting it registered in Delhi or Chandigarh? And just for info I was under the impression that theres a lot hassle in buying a vehicle from a distant and city and getting it registered in your city!

boyz...1.5lk disc...i would have gone in for a 4x4

@harjeev, you may be right. It still would have been nice, if that illumination would be programmed to stay ON, till such time a key is inserted.

Thats coming from the AC vent on central console. dadu had the same issue. Its a problem with the exhaust/ventilation there.

good u went for 2.2 lt. very efficient and refined version from tatas stable.
well u check once whether u are sucking outside air or recirculation inside air with AC ? may be the u have kept the know on outside air suction hence the sound is harsh.
