No use karthik. i have checked all known websites. No one has a alarm with impact sensors separately

My friend has gone to brazil and he called me up from there as i had told him to get a few accessories for my linea. Seems the door sill plates and chrome pedals and chrome door panels are available, but they dont know how compatible it is with indian linea. So he has asked me to enquire and let him know.

Have shot a mail to mangesh. Called his office and as usual he is not in office. Tried calling his mobile , it is also not reachable.

Can someone else throw me more light on this?

I think it would be a service reminder.

Yes it is the service reminder. The TASS guys forgot to update the service reminder after the 2nd service so it is still coming even after the aservice. i also get a message at the startup saying " service coupon expired"

Update.

My blue and me hung today. it would not take calls or even connect to my phone suddenly.

Tried erasing all the user data and re pairing . Even the pairing password didnt come.

Finally came and browsed t-bhp. some one else had the same problem and had given the solution.

Disconnected my battery terminals and waited for 15 mins and then reconnected it.

Started the car and tried pairing my phone and to my surprise it worked!!. it gave out the password and was able to connect my phone finally and sync the phonebook.

Thanks team-bhp and you guys. You saved me from the arduous task of driving the car for 24kms for repairing it!!

May be we should set up a team-bhp service station for all cars with the expertise we have!!

geeash,


Thumb rule for hung or errantly behaving electronics products with operating system especially by Microsoft, just re-start the system or disconnect the battery and reconnect after some time.


The system will reboot and starts running normally

There is a humming sound which comes when i switch on my ACC which i have not noticed. Dont know what is it . But the hum comes from Co-passenger side. Has anyone experienced the same?

The car is back to rattling mode. a couple of audible rattles are coming from rear especially since i went on a couple of very bad roads last fortnight

I have noticed that the Rear Seat should not have anything slipping between it (including the seat belts) . Raise the rear seat and clear it of all unwanted stuff (if any)
