This is very important and if not followed. If a child is too big for a child restraint system. Injured person : TATA MOTORS recommends the use of a seat-belt for injured person. Do not use a forward facing child restraint system in the front seat of the car. Never put rearward facing child restraints on front seat unless the passenger airbag is deactivated. According to accident statistics. consult your doctor for specific recommendations. . • Select the child restraint based on the weight of the child. Use the seat-belt when the child is in the rear seat also. Before installation. Refer child restraint manufacturer’s instructions for installation. Failure to do so could increase the chance of injury and / or the severity of injury in accidents. unless the passenger airbag is deactivated. always read the manufacturer’s instructions. Doctors advise is recommended.GETTING STARTED TATA MOTORS strongly urges that the driver and passengers in the car be properly restrained at all times with seat-belts. The lap belt should be worn securely and as low as possible over the hips and the waist. Child restraint systems are available at authorised TATA MOTORS dealerships. • General Guidelines: • • Children below 12 years are always safe in child restraints. Age should be used as a reference. • Pregnant Woman : TATA MOTORS recommends the use of a seat-belt.TATA MOTORS 72 Seat Belts & Safety Checks recommends the use of a type which fits your car. Rearward facing child restraints are preferred for children with weight less than 9kg or until they can sit themselves without any aid. he / she should sit in the seat and must be restrained using the car’s seat-belt. it can lead to a serious injury or even death. Depending on the injury. a child is safer when properly restrained in the rear seat than in the front seat. For Airbag Equipped Cars: • • Rear Seat is the SAFEST for children. Baby or Small Child : Use child restraint system appropriate for the child until he / she becomes mature enough to properly wear the car’s seat-belts.

During an emergency braking the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) regulates the braking force for each individual wheel. so this will not extinguish until the park brake is released and fluid level in reservoir is approximately at Max. In order to obtain the maximum benefit from your ABS system in an emergency situation. To avoid the wheels from locking and prevent the vehicle from skidding ABS is provided. an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) incorporating Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) is provided on Indica Vista (ABS version). EBD moderates the braking forces at the rear axle depending upon the load condition and available friction at the rear wheels. In doing so the system optimizes the level of braking being achieved while maintaining a stable. Press brake pedal continuously as hard as possible or as the situation demands. Both lamps will then extinguish to indicate the system is healthy. controllable vehicle.GETTING STARTED ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) (if provided) : INTRODUCTION: In addition to the conventional hydraulic brake system. Both the EBD and the ABS functions work by continuously monitoring and comparing the four individual wheel speeds and reacts when a wheel is detected as loosing grip with the road surface. when the ignition is switch on. It prevents the wheels from locking and maintains the steerability of the vehicle thereby helping the driver to maintain stability of the vehicle while bringing it to a stop in the safest possible way.

Your car’s engine may get seriously damaged if attempted to drive through deep water. It may cause loss of control and lead to a skid. Never venture to drive through water when it flows over stones on a bridge. Keep engine in fast idling and crawl the car in low gear. After driving through water apply brakes several times to dry liners and to regain original braking. Take the car to nearest TATA authorised workshop to check entry of water in cylinders. Get the starter and alternator checked. If at all the situation demands that you have to drive through water then. For slowing down. Maintain a speed such that you can stop within illuminated distance of head lamps.

Select appropriate gear so that gear changing or clutch disengagement is not involved while descending the gradient. If the car stalls or losses headway while climbing a steep hill. 90 Driving in Adverse Condition Descending Sharp Gradients : Depending on the severity of the gradient. Climbing Sharp Gradients on Loose Surfaces : Choose as smooth a slope as possible and select the appropriate gear so that gear changing in the middle of the climb is not required. shift into appropriate gear. The danger is in loss of traction and sideways slippage. . thereby providing increased grip. Changing gears in the middle of the climb can cause loss of momentum and engine stalling. If the wheels start to slip within few feet of the end of the climb. Start off smoothly in any suitable gear. motion can be maintained by swinging the steered wheels left and right. possibly resulting in tipping over. choose as mild an angle as possible and keep the car moving. Use engine braking judiciously without over-revving the engine. If unavoidable. Never move the car diagonally across a hill. Apply power smoothly so that there is no loss of traction by over-revving of the engine. Brake application under such situations should be done very smoothly to avoid loss of control. Use side indicators for lane change or turning. Shifting to a lower gear has to be done cautiously to avoid loss of traction.DRIVING Use head lamp main/dip beam to alert other road users on turns/cross roads etc. make a quick shift to reverse and allow the car to move back with the control of engine compression. • Put on hazard warning switch in case of hazardous parking or if your car is disabled to warn the passing traffic.

Clean the battery terminals with a terminal cleaning tool or wire brush. cover the terminals with a solution of baking soda. 1. Keep all sparks and open flames and smoking materials away from the battery. Dry off the battery with a cloth or paper towel.Battery BATTERY : Check the battery for proper electrolyte level and corrosion on the terminals. Ensure that the battery securely mounted. Coat the terminals with petroleum jelly to prevent future corrosion. Check the battery for electrolyte level against the marking on the battery outer case. the battery generates gas which is explosive in nature. When this stops. It will bubble up and turn brown. Use a proper wrench to loosen and remove cables from the terminals. The battery contains sulphuric acid (electrolyte) which is poisonous and highly corrosive in nature. If you need to connect the battery to a charger. 143 . wash it off with plain water. Always disconnect the negative (-ve) cable first and reconnect it last. Check the battery terminals for corrosion (a white or yellowish powder). NOTICE During normal operation. 3. Wear protective clothing and a face MAINTENANCE shield or have a skilled technician to do the battery maintenance. coat the terminals with petroleum jelly. To remove it. disconnect both cables to prevent damage to the car’s electrical system. A spark or open flame can cause the battery to explode causing very serious injuries.

Never attempt to adjust the belt tension on your own.MAINTENANCE Belt Tension : Check the conditions of belts on the engine. get it attended at the nearest Authorised Service Outlet.
