Service Time:

Yearly paid service. Done at 10k km gap/1 year.

Initially they offered to set the AC ON permanently by some jugaad, ON/OFF via the fan control switch, same as my current jugaad, as chevy don't have subparts for many and have to change whole part in case of a small component fail. AC control module was single sealed piece and no way to change ON/OFF switch alone. Initial quote was 5k for AC controller module, but after searching, he updated 1.5k. So changed it.

After service, reaching home noted none of the backlits, park lights, were working. Spent whole night looking for blow fuse. Finally back to Chevy and it was a burnt fuse box. Next day changed that also.

Bled clutch/brake fluid on request, since 50k km.

Some rubber bush in rear shocker had degraded causing suspension cover to fall over and make irritating noise. Thought have to change whole shocker due to Chevy part policy, but luckily subpart was available. They call it jounce bumper.

Pollen filter changed on request. AC is super chilling even at noon.

Brake pad making screeching noise. Some non-OE pad installed by outside garage. Just cleaned as it as not even half worn. Still making noise.

Get ECU scanned and wiring checked for water or Rat bites.
Got scanning done again. Error code P2282 identified. It occurs due to Unmetered air leaks between throttle body and intake valves, Air leaks at the intake manifold or Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system is leaking or the valve is stuck open.

However physical inspection could not detect any such issues.

Is this common in Beat Diesel that Service indicator glows once in a while and when it glows up engine speed is around 2k rpm? I have been facing this situation for long in my car. Once Service indicator glows once i reaches 2k rpm and stays for some time (sometimes 1-2 days), suddenly it goes off and check engine light glows and again it stays for few days. My car current ODO is 50K. I even got intercooler and EGR valve cleaning done recently. Still no change in situation. Can anyone help me with this issue?
Same thing happened to me the car does not rise above 2k RPM . Finally PUMP has to be replaced from the service center from Ernakulam . When they diagnose the problem they says that the pump has to be replaced . Since it was under warranty i tell them go ahead. Other wise it will cost upto 25 k .
then my odometer is 42 K .

First you have to visit the service center and they will diagnose the car with their laptop and they will tell the correct problem .

Which PUMP are you refering here?
Meanwhile i got scanning done again. Error code P2282 identified. It occurs due to Unmetered air leaks between throttle body and intake valves, Air leaks at the intake manifold or Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system is leaking or the valve is stuck open. However physical inspection could not detect any such issues. What should i do now?

whether the vehicle is still does not rise after 2k RPM. ? Whether the vehicle is still under warranty ? Then try to replace the parts which the error code shows . IN my case the they have replace the main fuel pump (heart of the car ) which was places very close to the engine compartment . If the vehicle is not under warranty try some other workshops which you should know otherwise you have to try other dealership .

From which state you are from ? What did the service guys says about this kind of situation ?

My car does rise above 2K and reaches above 3K easily. However, the issue is just the glowing of Service Indicator and after running several kms it blows OFF and check engine light glows ON and stays there for next some days and vice versa. Secondly, my beat is 5 years old and is out of warranty. The error code generated after scanning my car was P2282. It occurs due to Unmetered air leaks between throttle body and intake valves, Air leaks at the intake manifold or Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system is leaking or the valve is stuck open. However physical inspection could not detect any such issues. I belong to Uttar Pradesh. Even service guys could not provide a permanent solution so far. They removed the error code and asked me to drive and let them know if again check engine light glows ON.

My Beat Diesel has just completed 60K. It's a 2012 model. Recently, i have been facing an issue of delayed starting fro last some days. Car takes 10-15 second continuous cranks to start. Sometimes repeated efforts required. The engine gets started with fewer revolutions and then reaches required RPM after 1-2 seconds. Battery is 1.5 years old and seems OK. Can any body help in identifying the issue and it's resolution.

Unfortunate happened again. Car dead on run. Cranking, but not starting. No fuel pump priming. Towed to a FNG. God knows what next.
