Have a new problem now. Vehicle is not cranking. Upon two to three attempts of long key twists, yeti starts up. I thought it was battery problem, but ignition lights power windows and remote all are working. What could be the problem? First time I got warning tone for abs. Another time the steering wheel indicator light on the console glowed. Now the auto down and up of driver side window is not functioning. Any ideas?

Seems like a battery problem to me. The windows and all will work because they use much less power than the starter. Do get it checked up.

The auto up down will need to be re-enabled, I think you have to pull the switch up and keep it pulled up in the auto slot till the window goes all the way up, and then for a second or 2 longer.

The service center (Tafe Access) agreed to replace the battery on warranty.

Another problem is the annoying rattle from the rear. All the doors seem to rattle (creaky noise) on uneven roads. On a smooth tarmac, there is no rattle.

Is the rattle from a seat? It could be something loose in the boot. Also the creaking from the doors can be easily stopped, buy this thing called Gummi Pflege, you will get it online. It'll cost about $20, apply it on the rubber beadings around the doors, and on the felt lining on top. It'll take care of the noise for a few months.

Hi Ajeesh
The door creaking is a very common issue on all Yeti's. If you go back a few pages on my thread, I have shared the solution to this problem. It is quite easy to solve with silicone spray lubricant or teflon lubricant.

The sound of rubber beadings rubbing together has popped up on my Xuv after the ladakh trip. Any idea where to get silicon spray lubricant in Gurgaon.

These are quite difficult to get in physical stores, but available quite easily in online stores, sharing two links below from which you can order:

Hi Guys,

Anyone has faced issues with their Yetis yet with their coolant? My car suddenly gave me a message "Coolant level low" while starting the car one fine morning. I topped it up with around 100 ml of water and after 2 days I get the message back. I filled it again with water and planning to take it to the ASC tomorrow, not sure what surprises I have in store for tomorrow. Anyone else shares the same experiences??

Thanks,
Sid

Not on my Yeti but read something similar on Karan's thread.. It may be helpful.

Thanks for the info!

I had been to the ASC today and they confirmed that there is a leakage, but they wanted to keep the car for the day to inspect. I had to travel out of town and hence have booked the appointment for later this week. Lets see what they find out. I was also told by the SA that this is the first case of coolant leakage that he has come across between Yeti's and Lauras, though I see this to be quite common at briskoda. Not sure if he was speaking the truth, anyways will update you guys later on the findings.

TC,
Sid

Yes, that's correct.
Ask the A.S.S. not to worry about it.

The best way to handle this is to ignore it - that's what I have been doing since last 3 years. Mine broke and came off within first 6 months. I have kept it in the stowage area below the steering - for old memory sake...

The ac cooling power on the yeti went down drastically in the past few days. Even setting the fan speed in 3, and cooler to maximum isn't cooling the cabin after waiting for 15-20 minutes. What could have gone wrong? AC is still working, only that the cooling is much much lesser.

You mentioned the error to be "Coolant level low" and you added water? Arent you supposed to top it up with the correct coolant?

I believe there is a new control valve that's being replaced free of cost. This was done for my Laura and the climate control performance is way ahead. You could check with your dealer on this. Clogging of the pollen filter can also result in this.
