    that fiat is now purchased by younger bros friend, infact first it was bought by dad's friend, imranbhatti knows him, then same day due to insist of younger bro he gave car to bro's friend on same price. it was finally done on 175k
    he is bringing another 38k driven maroon fiat soon the dealer, i will see that too.
    i saw a cielo daewoo of multan number in very good condition at around same price 180k. but i have doubts about cielo parts etc. engine type.

    so deal got matured and it was cleared (FIAT) i drove it and sms imranbhatti last night. it was with power steering. and fan was on switch. suspension just like new car.
    found a kit bag inside car of raja motors without tools :p

    @spectra

    saqib bhai, top model means latest ones or some category in models. it is LRG so it is 2002 model, single handed owned by a lady in defence. two years token with penalty paid for around 10700.
    dad also liked it alot but he is reluctant, i feel he will buy after this kid's experience.

    sadly last night imranbhatti told me about a 96 model khyber and after couple of moments he again called to tell that my luck is cold its sold for only 210k it was with duplicate book. tough luck man!!!!

    Dear @All,

    I'm interested in getting a Fiat Uno, as I like the car and after being a regular reader on pakwheels have started to trust 'spectra'. My problem is that my range is Rs 2 lakh. I can stretch it to 2.25 but that's too much stretching as I would probably have to take loan.

    Also, there is an Uno selling on Pakwheels in Lahore. Here is the link https://www.pakwheels.com/xt_details.asp?CarID=14674

    I'm based in Islamabad. I would appreciate if any friend from the fan club can help me out with sharing her/his opinion about the above car or any other.

    Thank you!
    This is as much of a test for me as it's for them

    Dear @spectra, thank you for responding. Just one other thing to ask does the price compared to the mileage on this vehicle seem reasonable to you?

    thanks for the detailed reply for the nissan...
    so when is my date with ne of the nissans u know...

    plus... i really dont want to sell the pug... but my budget would not allow me to get a nissan without selling it...
    ..

    i think it would take a date with a nissan diesel to make up my mind...

    do let me know... no rush.. whenever possible at ur convenience..
    Do the environment a favour, Use less airconditioning .. and please walk to the shop to get a pack of cigarretes..its only a 3 min walk..

    The car looks good & ur budget is also sufficient to get an good running Uno. but the problem is its hard to manage a deal or to describe condition on phones, so it would be better if u plan a trip to lahore on weekend for Uno hunting & definately we will acompany u.

    Last weekend i visited beeberg for a DIY session to fix some long pending isssues of Uno.
    Had very good & informative session.

    On my way to beeberg place i hit (not intensionaly) an auto rikshaw & got kraked left head light lens & indicator of my ride.


    ##### Fiat Uno Fan Club ##### -687128



    Back to activity,

    We started with task "to get Radiator Fan in automatic mode"' as it was direct since i bought my Uno,


    ##### Fiat Uno Fan Club ##### -687129


    Work in progress,


    ##### Fiat Uno Fan Club ##### -687130


    The Dual port thermal switch,


    ##### Fiat Uno Fan Club ##### -687131


    For testing we used boiled water. The switch was dipped in boiled water for 7~8 second to raise its temprature.
    Testing in progress,

    ##### Fiat Uno Fan Club ##### -687132


    and finaly it works,


    ##### Fiat Uno Fan Club ##### -687133


    Alhamdulillah it was working other wise i had to spend rupees 1250 for new one. As existing setup was using just one relay for Fan so i put it for single speed operation as dual speed setup requires one more relay to energise second winding of Fan.

    The second task was to fix its heater timer as it was stucked to 16 sec & doesnt trip even if i start the car befor expiring timer. so on each starting i had to wait for 16 sec which was dangerous for Heater & battery life.
    So first i inspect the timer & try to fix operation buy checking wiring but no out come as their was an electronic fault in gadget.

    ##### Fiat Uno Fan Club ##### -687134


    ##### Fiat Uno Fan Club ##### -687135


    as it was getting dark so we havent play with original timer & start try to fix it with things in hand. Luckuly i got one local made timer covered with shoping bag & insullation tape to protect it from water hanging in hood of my Car it wasnt energised but was connected with some incomplete wiring probabaly some one try to connect it but doesnt complete the job & left the new circuit inside the hood.

    The Local Timer,

    ##### Fiat Uno Fan Club ##### -687136


    But unfortunately the new timer was useless as it was equiped with 5 Amp relay which wasnt sufficient to energise four glow Plugs

    As it was sunday so it was difficult to find a new relay. So finaly we preceeded with solution of combining both old & new timers circuitry. what we have done is,
    as old timer was stucked to 16 seconds but its load relay was working fine to energising heater so we connect it back & added localy made new timer in series of old timer's power supply
    & then the setup was ready to perform its desire function. We set new timer to 4 seconds so now when ignition switch is turned ON the new timer gives supply to old timer for 4 seconds & consequently old timer energises heaters for 4 seconds & then turns them off.


    Now the third task was the servicing of Self Starter as it was missing some times

    So we started work on last task,

    ##### Fiat Uno Fan Club ##### -687141


    ##### Fiat Uno Fan Club ##### -687142


    Self starter removed,


    ##### Fiat Uno Fan Club ##### -687143


    It is 1.6KW motor by Denso.


    ##### Fiat Uno Fan Club ##### -687144


    Finaly we open the starter,

    ##### Fiat Uno Fan Club ##### -687145


    As per our doubt the slots on commutator were filled with carbon's residue which was causing loss in power of motor & missing so we buff it with thin sand paper while the residue on Carbon brushes was removed with small screwdriver to get them back in proper shape.

    But in haste we had missed detail snap shots of the steps we adopted.

    Soon we are planning to fix other pending tasks which are,

    1) Replacement of Thermostat Valve.
    2) Dual Speed operation of Radiator's Fan.
    3) Fixing HVAC control for proper operation(Inherent flaw of Fiat Uno)
    4) Auto switch Off heater if Car is started before expiring heater timer.

    @all

    dont worry self starter is not placed near fuel tank, it was taken out beneath engine behind the bumper. at usual place ofcourse.

    i must tell u all, imranbhatti is born genius. and i am bad electronics. though i tried to help him out but i was all blind in understanding wires. rest of things were fixed in good way. my charade's horn is also fixed.

    on next weekend we both married will celeb weekend at my place with our beloved ones inshallah i will be selling my charade by next week but will spend more time on FIAT UNO


    @imranbhatti

    good news, that maroon fiat is 10 times better than that pearl white except power and color. it seems dabba pack engine :p with tight suspension.
    ash tray missing, but found something similar to that one in diggy. asking 165k. i am waiting for kamran bhai response about that one if i were able to send mine earlier that will be must deal inshallah. OR i will wait to get same condition with power
