One Good News and Bad News with Whity, First, Good News:
I was on a trip of 600kms from 15th - 16th of Sept.
All the way Whity performed its best as Usual. While I was on the way to Cuddalore on 15th, my front Left Tyre gone flat. I found that when we finished our Lunch. Then replaced the Flat Tyre with spare Tyre and continued the trip. Due to Sunday, there was no Puncture shop and I'm also not in mood to search the shop.
On 16th Morning I started from Cuddalore to Vellore without the spare Tyre. we started at 9:20am and reached home at Vellore at 12:20am without a single break . Then again spent the time by roaming here and there till 7:00pm and reached home without any issue:) Now, Bad News:
Around 9:00pm, my parents and sister went to relative home which is present some 3 streets next to my house at Vellore.
At 9:30pm, I received a call from my Dad saying Whity was refusing to start.
I took my sisters Scooty and reached the spot in minutes. Once I reached there I found the Parking lights are blinking when my Dad trying to start the car. I thought some short circuit would be the issue, So disconnected the battery terminal and connected again to start. This time I tried to start the Whity.
When I turned ON the Ignition, I found all the lights on the Console started binging and the Engine not even cracked. Then called some guys who passed on the street to help to start the car. I engaged the second gear, While those guys pushing the car I released the Clutch, Whity started. then went for some 20mins drive.
Once I reached home, I tried to restart the car. But, it didn't :(. Here I done a big mistake. I could have rolled up before switching off the Engine
Due to low battery, the windows were struggled to roll up. After struggling few mins, I rolled up all the windows. Even center locking were not working, so done the manual locking.
So finally I concluded Battery is Kaput 17/09/2013, Today:
As I already mentioned in the thread, Vellore TASS has been closed and I'm expecting New dealer for TASS shortly. So I don't know whether to call my SE or not. But thought to check with him. So, I called him around 8:45am, and informed the scenario. He too suspected the Battery and he refereed Electrician, who worked in TASS and currently having private car Electrical shop :)
SE had a word with Electrician and asked him to come to my place. Electrician reached home at 10am and checked the status of the car.
Then He opened the battery caps with coin and found there was no Distilled water there in Battery
So he removed the battery and checked it, then He said "Battery looks undamaged. Will add the distill water and charge the Battery today. If everything is fine we can keep the battery. Otherwise will go for Amaron battery"
Electrician took the battery to his shop. As I need to go to Chennai, He dropped me in New Bus stand at Vellore.
Will see what happen tomorrow. Emotional touch:
In the past two days, I was on full driving even I went to some remote village which is literately separated from any Cities and Towns. Even no roads, bus, nothing. If the problem happened there what would have happened?
Even we traveled with a one year baby, can't imagine the situation. Thanks to Vista for taking care of Us, till we reach our home :) BTW, I've installed LED parking bulbs before starting the trip :) Special Thanks to HighwayRanger and Cooldhaya for the suggestion provided over the Phone call during the incident:)
