Re: Mahindra XUV500 niggles & solutions

Thanks, it is just Due for Service error only
Rest everything is fine.

Re: Mahindra XUV500 niggles & solutions

Hi everyone and experts in particular, my XUV 500 W8 AWD ( 2017 model ) had been running smooth and trouble free over the last 6 and a half years. The usual once in a while door lock malfunction or a power window motor malfunction that I choose to turn my eyes away from, and the obvious door metal rusting that I have been fighting since purchase, and have now learnt to live with it after twice repairing doors till date. Other than these it's been a nice ride over bad roads, very bad roads and unpredictably bad roads through villages and hills.

But, it's been about two weeks now, that now and then the ECU is throwing the HDD Failed to Activate and HHC Failed to Activate Notices on the Console, and indeed the HDD button doesn't light up on such occasions. Restarting the car once or maybe twice at times, the Warning is gone and I have tested on mall parking ramps when there is no Fail Notice, both HDD and HCC ( three seconds of stand still with gear shifted to First, clutch pressed and brake released ) work fine. But then again after another day, the warning comes back, and then goes away again. Usually comes up mostly when I crank the engine for the first time on a given day.

Now since tomorrow another Warning is coming up, Brake Fluid Low warning, my car doesn't run too much other than 3 to 5 road trips and weekly travels to local malls and kid's classes ( we work from home long before COVID taught people about it ) and has done over 55k km in 6.5 yrs, and at 40k service Brake/Clutch oil was filled in as scheduled and I checked today, the brake oil is above MAX level as expected and there is no evident leak either. No stain or drip on the parking spot.

Is it like sensors going bad or just a glitch ot a blip test of the system that's producing wrong results? Will eventually take it to an ASS but would love to have a better idea because these days Authorised Service Stations are either reluctant to take up small jobs or are eager but tend to end up by replacing spare parts unnecessarily to meet their targets it seems.

Any direction to look would be useful.

How old is your car's battery, sometimes these errors do pop up when the car's battery is on it's way out.

Re: Mahindra XUV500 niggles & solutions

Thanks a lot @revvharder, I think you are right in questioning the battery. The battery is as old as the car, and since it has so far never given any trouble and all usual markers look ok, and at about 5 yrs of its age, the reading were within expected range, I never cared to change it knowing that the life of a battery is usually 5 years. Now that you have pointed that direction, first thing tomorrow is that I get a new battery, since it's already overdue. Thanks again.

Re: Mahindra XUV500 niggles & solutions

Update: Had the battery checked and the running voltage was a steady start at 12.5 V and peaked at 14 V which was almost good, but the cranking voltage which is supposed to be around 9V was very low, it gave a reading of around 6V. Which explains why all those sensor errors were appearing on startup. Got a fresh AMARON, the same as it was and been like 4 days now, no sensor errors anymore.

Thanks @revvharder for pointing that out. Cheers!

Re: Mahindra XUV500 niggles & solutions

I find the suspension of my XUV500 W4 (2014) rather hard. On Pune's terrible roads, my ride becomes rather bumpy. naturally there is considerable body roll too.

I've had the suspension checked multiple times from different garages, got the shockers and other rubber -bushes etc replaced, but it only lasts for a while.

What is the solution to this problem?

has anyone tried out the Rogerab? Does that help to make the ride softer?

Would be grateful for any inputs on the above.

Thanks and best wishes.

Have got rogerab suspension softener installed in my XUV5OO. Can't say it has done magic to the stock suspension setup, but body-roll & overall stiffness have gone down a tad bit.
Don't expect drastic changes or German-cars-level plush drive with rogerab, but I guess it is worth it.
