When you turn on the music system after the engine is off and key is removed it will automatically turn off after some time (30 minutes I think) for power saving. This is very use full feature otherwise you will eventually drain your battery and you won't be able to start again .
I guess most of the new generation vehicles have this feature.
Press the 'Menu' button on the HU and use the 'Up / Down' keys to scroll to the option 'RADIO OFF'. Use the 'Left / Right' arrow keys to change the option from '00 MIN' to '20 MIN' Now when you switch off the engine by turning the key to 'STOP', the HU will remain ON for 20 minutes
The flip side, do remember to manually switch off the music system when you leave the car
Well, it depends on individual's practice. Even with my previous car, I have been always following practice of switching off all electricals before I turn off the engine & leave the car. Be it music system or AC or headlamps; this comes as a habit to me. So am able to utilize this Music system feature in Punto effectively
I understand you must have had a bad experience brother but there are many others who have had a good time with FIAT cars, including myself. So even though I dont go and pursue everyone to buy a FIAT, at the same time, I wont stop anyone from buying it either.
Please elaborate on the issues you faced, how you contacted the company and what was their response.
Yes I agree with raj. I am a proud owner of 2 Punto's and it's now been 3 yrs driving it. And the car is just awesome in this segment.This thread is to compliment the car and share the experiencs about the same. If you have some concerns kindly put it in another thread of your own.
