2.3 Fuses and Relays
A fuse is the most common electric protection device. The fuse is placed in an electrical circuit, so that when current flow exceeds the rating of the circuit/fuse, it blows off. The element in the fuse melts, opening the circuit and preventing other components of the circuit from being damaged by the over current. The size of the metal fuse element determines the rating. Once a fuse blows off, it must be replaced with a new one of the same rating.
Switch the ignition and all electrical equipment OFF before touching or attempting to change a fuse.
Replacement fuse must be with the same rating as the one you have removed.
You can identify a blown fuse by a break in the filament. All fuses except high current fuses are press fit.
Never touch fuses with bare hands. Always use the fuse puller to remove and refit the fuses.
Be careful while removing the relay, to avoid damage to relay terminal — do not shake or apply excessive force .

Graphic
Battery mounted fuse box consist of following fuses:
•  Main charging fuse – 125A (Pink colour)
•  Bus bar fuse - 80A (White colour)
•  Cooling fan fuse – 60A (Yellow colour)
2.4 Flat Tyre
Reduce your speed gradually, keeping a straight line. Move cautiously off the road to a safe place well away from traffic. Park on a level spot with firm ground. Stop the engine and switch ON your hazard warning flashers.
Firmly apply the parking brake. Have everyone come out of the vehicle on the side away from traffic.
After stopping , use the hazard warning triangle to alert the oncoming traffic of the stopped vehicle
Never stop your vehicle in a traffic lane to change a tyre. Keep driving until you reach a safe location.
The jack provided along with the vehicle is to be used only for changing a spare tyre. It is never to be used to perform any other maintenance or repair on the vehicle.
Never place any part of your body under any portion of the vehicle when it is supported only by the jack. You could be crushed by the vehicle if it falls off a jack. Keep bystander’s away from the vehicle.
Find level, solid ground that is clear of oncoming traffic. If you cannot find a safe place to stop, it is better to drive on a flat tyre and damage the rim than it is to risk being hit by oncoming traffic.
After changing a flat tyre, never store the tyre or other equipment in the passenger compartment of the vehicle. This loose equipment could strike an occupant in the event of a sudden stop or collision. Store all of these items in the proper place.
The following sections outline the procedure for changing a flat tyre;
2.4.1 Jack/Wheel Spanner
The jack and tool bag is placed under the third row seat.
Graphic
Graphic
Remove the velcro placed around the Tool bag .
Jack is held in place by a wing type bolt. Remove the wing bolt and move the jack towards tail gate slightly to remove it from its position.
Graphic
Wheel spanner, jack handle Tow hook and Tools are placed in the tool bag and fastened using Velcro.
Graphic
2.4.2 Spare Wheel Removal
Graphic
Graphic
The spare wheel is mounted on the back door at the rear end of the vehicle. It is held in place by a securing nuts underneath the Bolero badge.
•  Insert your hands at both side of the Bolero badge on the spare wheel cover and pull the badge away from the Cover
•  Loosen and remove the securing nut counter clockwise with a wheel spanner
•  Hold the spare wheel cover with both hands and pull outwards to remove
•  Loosen the remaining spare wheel nuts counter clockwise with a wheel spanner
•  Slowly support and lower the spare wheel
A anti-theft lock system is provided for the spare wheel as shown. Any small lock can be used to disable the securing nut from being removed.
2.4.3 Wheel Nut Loosening
Wrap the tip of a screw driver with cloth, insert it near the lugs of the wheel cap (if equipped) and pry the cap away from the wheel.
Do not try to pry off the wheel cap by hand alone. Take due care in handling the wheel cap to avoid unexpected personal injury.
Graphic
Always loosen the wheel nuts before raising the vehicle. Turn the wheel nuts counter clockwise to loosen as per the crisscross sequence shown. To get maximum leverage, fit the spanner to the nut so that the handle is on the left side. Grab the spanner near the end of the handle and push down on the handle. Be careful that the spanner does not slip off the nut. Do not remove the nuts, but loosen them by one or two turns.
Do not apply force with your legs (or stand) on the wheel spanner while loosening/tightening the wheel nuts.
2.5 Jack Points
Front jack up point - On the chassis long member behind the front wheels.
Rear jack up point - On either side of the frame.
Graphic
Graphic
2.5.1 Jacking
Position the jack at the correct jacking point. Make sure the jack is positioned on a level and solid ground. Ensure that no one is in the vehicle.
Block the wheel diagonally opposing the flat tyre to keep the vehicle from rolling when it is jacked up. While blocking the wheel, place a wheel block in front of one of the front wheels or behind one of the rear wheels.
Graphic
A
Flat Tyre
B
Chock Blocks
To raise the vehicle, insert the jack handle end along with the extension into the jack and turn it clockwise with the jack handle. As the jack touches the vehicle and begins to lift, check that it is properly positioned. Raise it high enough so that the spare tyre can be installed. Remember that you will need more ground clearance when putting the inflated spare tyre than when removing the flat tyre.
Make sure to locate the jack properly in the jacking point. Raising the vehicle with an improperly positioned jack will damage the underbody of the vehicle and may allow the vehicle to fall off the jack and cause personal injury.
•  Use the jack only for lifting the vehicle during wheel changing
•  Do not raise the jack with any person inside the vehicle
•  When raising the vehicle, do not place any objects on top of or underneath the jack
•  Raise the vehicle only high enough to remove and change the wheel
•  The usable extended height of jack is up to the yellow line/mark. Do not raise the jack above the yellow line.
•  Follow jacking instructions
•  Do not start or run the engine while your vehicle is supported by the jack
Never get under the vehicle when the vehicle is supported by the jack alone.
Remove the wheel nuts. Remove the flat tyre straight off and then place it aside. Roll the spare wheel into position and align the holes of the disc with the bolts. Lift the wheel and hand tighten the top wheel nut. Wiggle the wheel and press it back over the other bolts.
Re-install the wheel nuts with the tapered end inward and tighten by hand. Press the wheel inward and tighten the wheel nuts further.
Before lowering the wheel hand tighten the nuts in diagonal sequence so that wheel is flush against the hub/drum
Graphic
Never use oil or grease on the bolts or nuts. Doing so may lead to over tightening of the nuts, wheel nut spanner slip, damage the bolts and also may cause personal injuries. Also, nuts may loosen and the wheels may fall off, which could cause a serious accident. If there is oil or grease on any bolt or nut, clean before installing wheel nuts.
Lower the vehicle completely and tighten the diagonally opposite wheel nuts using the wheel nut spanner. Turn the jack handle extension anti clockwise using the jack handle to lower the vehicle, making sure the handle remains firmly fitted onto the jack handle extension. Make sure the wheel spanner is securely engaged over the nut. Tighten each nut a little at a time in the diagonally opposite order as shown. Repeat the process until all the nuts are tight. Do not use any other tools or any additional leverage other than your hands, such as a hammer, pipe or your foot.
Graphic
Firmly tighten the wheel nuts as per the sequence shown in the illustration , two to three times.
Improperly or loosely tightened wheel nuts are dangerous. The wheel can wobble or come off. This can result in loss of vehicle control and cause a serious accident. Always make sure all the wheel nuts are properly/securely tightened to the specified torque.
When lowering the vehicle, make sure all portions of your body are clear off the vehicle as it is lowered to the ground. Have the wheel nuts tightened with the torque spanner to 120 Nm, as soon as possible after changing wheels.
If you have rotated, repaired, changed your tyres or changed the wheel rims, retorque the wheel nuts after driving about 1,000 kms (Torque 120 Nm).
Put the wheel cap (if equipped) into position aligning the nozzle on the wheel to the nozzle clearance on the wheel cover. Tap it firmly on the sides with your hand to snap it into place.
Check the air pressure of the replaced tyre. If the pressure is lower than recommended, drive slowly to the nearest service station and inflate to the correct pressure. If it is too high, adjust it until it is correct. Always reinstall the valve cap after checking or adjusting tyre pressure. If the cap is not replaced, dirt and moisture could get into the valve core and cause air leakage. If you lose a valve cap, buy another and install it as soon as possible.
Wheel balancing to be done after tyre puncture rework.
2.5.2 Restore the Tools, Jack and Flat Tyre Securely
Restore the tools and jack back to their respective locations. Mount the flat tyre to the back door bracket at the rear of the vehicle. Firmly tighten the securing nuts and put the wheel cover back. Double check to ensure the tyre is snug against the back door of the vehicle.
It is recommended to fix the flat tyre at the nearest tyre shop and swap the spare wheel back. The wheel balance and alignment differ from wheel to wheel which may lead to difference in steering and braking.
2.6 Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)

5 EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM
The emission control system is a highly effective system which controls exhaust emissions from the engine and crucial for meeting emission norms specified by law.
Your vehicle is equipped with the following emission control systems for meeting BS VI emission norms.
1. Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC)
2. Selective Catalytic Reduction(SCR)
3. Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)
In order to ensure proper function of the emission control systems, it is mandatory to get your vehicle inspected and maintained by an authorized Mahindra dealer. The maintenance schedule in this manual need to be followed.
It is also extremely important to use correct grade of fuel, Confirming to IS 1460; 2017 BS VI Specification.
5.1 Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC)
A diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) is an after treatment component that is designed to convert carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrocarbons (HC) into carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O).
5.2 Selective Catalytic Reduction(SCR)
Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) is an advanced active emission control technology system that injects a liquid-reducing agent through a special catalyst into the exhaust stream of a diesel engine. The reductant is called as Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF). The DEF sets off a chemical reaction that converts nitrogen oxides into nitrogen and water which is then expelled through the vehicle tailpipe.
5.3 Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) MaxiCLEAN
To enable SCR system work efficiently and to ensure emission compliance, It is recommended to use MaxiCLEAN DEF meeting IS 17042 (or) ISO 22241 specification.
Refilling DEF is part of regular maintenance service. DEF consumption is highly dependent on driving conditions/pattern. It may be necessary to refill DEF reservoir in-between the scheduled service, You need to monitor DEF Indicator Tell Tale and symbols/text messages displayed on infotainment screen / Cluster.
MaxiCLEAN DEF is available at all the authorized Mahindra dealers in variable packs. Individual DEF Packs may have specific filler neck, for filling DEF in the vehicle. While refilling DEF, Ensure no spillage on the body of self and vehicle to avoid any stains or inconvenience.
It is unlawful to tamper with or remove any component of the after treatment system. It is strongly recommended not to use DEF which is not meeting above specification. Further, this may lead to emission non-compliance and warranty will be void.
•  Use Genuine DEF MaxiCLEAN always.
•  Incase of non-availability of above Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) complying to IS 17042 (or) ISO 22241 specification can be used.
•  Never attempt to use agricultural grade urea mixed with water. Agricultural grade urea does not meet the necessary specifications and the after treatment system of your vehicle may be damaged.
•  Total DEF quantity inside the DEF Tank should never be more than 16 liters. Overfilling may result in system/component failure.
•  DEF quality and purity can be ensured only if it is stored properly. Hence ensure the storage of DEF in cool, dry place between storage.
•  Do not add urea to DEF and do not dilute with water. This may cause after treatment system damage.
•  While refilling DEF inside tank, be careful not to allow any foreign particles, liquids, wiping paper/clothing fibers or lint to get inside the system. These may clog or damage the system.
•  If DEF is spilled over vehicle components and metal surfaces, rinse with water or wipe off with sponge and water. DEF residues will corrode the components and metal surfaces, painted body panels.
•  DEF is not a fuel additive and must not be added to the diesel fuel tank. If DEF is mixed with the diesel fuel, engine/fuel system could get damaged.
•  In such a case , do not start the engine and immediately contact nearest Mahindra Authorised Dealer for assistance.
5.4 Contamination/ Incorrect DEF
In the event that incorrect or contaminated fluid is filled inside DEF Tank, contact an authorized M&M dealer to determine the appropriate repair direction.
5.5 Handling of DEF
•  Ensure that DEF does not come into contact with skin, eyes, or clothing
•  Keep DEF out of the reach of children
•  In case if any part of the body is in contact with DEF, clean affected area immediately with plenty of water
•  If DEF contacted with eyes, flush with plenty of water immediately and seek medical assistance.
•  If DEF is swallowed, rinse mouth immediately with plenty of water, drink plenty of water immediately and seek medical assistance.
•  Don’t store DEF refill containers inside the vehicle. Ammonia vapors may escape from container which have a pungent odor and are particularly irritating for skin, mucous membranes and eyes. Inhaling ammonia vapors may cause burning eyes, nose and throat, as well as cough and watering eyes.
•  When opening the DEF filler cap, ammonia vapors may escape. Refill DEF in a well ventilated area only.
•  If Diesel Exhaust Fluid is spilled on metal surfaces rinse and clean immediately with water. Failure to do so may leave permanent corrosive stains on the metal surfaces which cannot be removed.
5.6 DEF Operating Condition
DEF will freeze at -11°C (12.2°F). This is natural phenomenon. The DEF system in the vehicle is designed considering this and does not require any external heating or additives to avoid freezing.
The Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) system purges to prevent damage from freezing. Do NOT disconnect battery power within 20 minutes of switching the ignition key off. Failure to comply may result in vehicle or property damage.
5.7 Refilling DEF
Your Vehicle DEF Filler Neck is located near the fuel filler neck. The DEF storage tank is located under the body.
Following below steps to refill the DEF:
1. Park the vehicle on level ground and switch OFF the ignition.
2. Open the fuel lid. The fuel lid can be opened by the lever located at the foot of the driver seat. Lift the lever up firmly to open..
Graphic
3. Rotate the DEF filler cap in anti-clockwise direction and remove.
4. Fill DEF from the Container Pack. Each container pack has unique mouth and filling provision. Ensure utilizing the same and avoid spillage. Example. 10 Lit. Pack provided with filler tube..
5. Fill DEF as required. Maximum Storage capacity 20 litre. Minimum filling 5.0 liter.
6. Rinse with water or use sponge wetted with water to clean the components/surfaces in case of DEF spills over.
7. Put the DEF filler cap back in its place and tighten in the clock wise direction, then close the fuel lid shut.
8. Switch the ignition ON
9. Verify that there is no warning regarding DEF low level. If DEF Level Low warning is still appearing, Check enough quantity filled, If still problem persist Contact nearest Authorized Mahindra Dealer immediately.
10. DEF is being monitored through iSmart tool during regular service at dealership and quantity will be filled accordingly.
It is highly recommended to DEF filling always at Ignition off condition only.
5.8 Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)
The Diesel particulate filter (DPF) is an integral part of the vehicle exhaust gas emission reduction systems and it removes the soot from (Particulate matter) the exhaust gas. Unlike a disposable air filter, the DPF is regenerative filter. Regeneration is triggered automatically according to the driving conditions which burns of the accumulated particles/soot. In other words, the active burning by engine control system and high exhaust gas temperature caused by normal/high driving condition burns and removes the accumulated soot. The process is called as DPF Active Regeneration.
However, if the vehicle continues to be driven at either of the following conditions the accumulated soot may not be automatically removed because of low exhaust gas temperature.
1. Heavy traffic driving conditions, especially in city
2. Frequent short trips
3. Low speed for a long time
Graphic
When more than a certain amount of soot deposited, the DPF lamp illuminates.
If the DPF lamp turns ON while driving the vehicle, then it indicates DPF regeneration has not occurred successfully. At this moment, we suggest DPF regeneration must be done through a specific methodology. The same is as mentioned below:
Take vehicle to highway and drive for 20–30 mins @ speeds above 60 kms/hr until the lamp switches OFF
(or)
Perform DPF Park Regeneration as per the below procedure.
DPF park regeneration is only possible when the REGEN telltale is ON in the instrument cluster
•  Park the vehicle safely in a well ventilated levelled open space and free of any flammable material.
Graphic
•  Shift the gear lever to Neutral with the engine running and apply the parking brake.
•  REGEN screen will appear in the drive info menu of instrument cluster when the REGEN telltale is ON
•  REGEN screen will go OFF if REGEN telltale turns OFF.
•  When in the REGEN screen of the drive info menu, Long Press SET button to start park regeneration.
•  Once regeneration starts, “In Progress” text will appear below REGEN. The engine idle speed will increase indicating regeneration has started..
•  Park Regeneration can take up to 30 minutes to complete. Once completed the REGEN warning lamp in the instrument cluster will turn OFF. The engine’s idling speed also returns to normal
Park Regeneration process may not start if CHECK ENGINE LAMP or OBD are ON in the cluster. Take vehicle to Mahindra authorised dealer for assistance.
When Park regeneration is happening do not press the Accelerator, Brake or Clutch pedals as this will cancel the regeneration process.
When Park regeneration is happening, switching off the ignition will cancel the regeneration process. The park regeneration process may not start if requested when the engine is switched ON again. Take the vehicle to highway and drive for 20–30 minutes @ speeds above 60kms/hr until DPF warning lamp turns OFF
(or)
Take vehicle to Mahindra authorised dealer for assistance
Diesel Fuel
It is recommended to use the automotive diesel fuel confirming to IS 1460: 2017 spec only.
If the diesel fuel with high sulfur content (more than 10 PPM) and unspecified additives are used, it can cause the DPF system damage and emission warranty issues.
•  During the regeneration process, take care the vehicle is not near any flammable materials as you may observe hot emission gases from exhaust pipe.
•  In order to avoid burns & personal injury, stay yourself away from exhaust system.
•  Follow speed limits & traffic regulations as defined by local jurisdiction while doing forced regeneration.

•  Sit in an upright position with the base of your spine pressed against the seat back
•  Adjust the head restraint as close as possible to the above specified position, with the top of the head restraint even with the top of your head
•  Maintain sufficient distance between yourself and the steering wheel. Maintain at least a ten inch (10") distance from the centre of the steering wheel to your chest
•  The top curve of the steering wheel should align with your chin for ideal road visibility
•  Adjust your seat and seat back angle such that your wrists rest on top of the steering wheel freely
•  Ensure your legs are in a bent position while fully depressing the clutch pedal
The seat should be adjusted while still maintaining control of the foot pedals, steering wheel and your view of the instrument panel controls.
Never adjust the driver's seat while the vehicle is in motion. The seat may unexpectedly move and cause the driver to unintentionally operate the accelerator or brake, or turn the steering wheel, causing loss of control of the vehicle, an accident or serious personal injury. Adjust the driver's seat only when the vehicle is not in motion.
Never put objects under the seats. They may interfere with the seat-lock mechanism or unexpectedly activate the seat position adjusting lever, causing the seat to suddenly move, resulting in loss of control of the vehicle, an accident or serious personal injury.
While adjusting the seat, do not put your hands under the seat or near the moving parts. This may lead to injuries.
6.1.2 Front Seat Slide
Graphic
Graphic
Move the seat forward or backward by lifting the adjustment lever/towel bar located under the seat front and release once the desired position is reached.
While adjusting the seat, make sure the latch engages fully and the seat is locked firmly in the desired position. An unlocked seat may move in a sudden stop or collision, causing injury to the person in that seat. Push and pull on the seat to be sure it is locked.

•  Swing the seat cushion fully up
•  Fold the seat leg completely down
•  Secure the seat by fastening the hook & strap provided on the bottom of the cushion to the loop provided behind the Seat Back
6.5 General Warnings and Instructions- Seat Belts
At least once each month, inspect the seat belt webbing for any cuts, tears, or other signs of wear (such as fraying along the edges). Also inspect the anchors, retractors, and buckles to be sure they are tight and operational.
•  All occupants, including the driver, should always wear their seat belt no matter how short the trip in order to minimize the risk of severe injury in the event of a crash. In an accident, an un-belted passenger becomes a projectile, and can cause serious injury to himself or another passenger.
•  In a rollover crash, an un-belted person is significantly more likely prone to Injury than a person wearing a seat belt
•  In order to be properly buckled, you must always sit up straight and keep your feet on the floor in front of you. The lap part must be worn low and tight across your hips, just touching the top of your thighs. While fastening the seat belt, the shoulder strap of the seat belt must pass over your chest and top of your shoulder. It must never touch your neck, face, the side of your shoulder, arm, or pass under your arm. The belt must always be flat against your body and not twisted in any way. Nothing, such as an arm rest, a pocketbook, or any external objects should be between you and the seat belt. Improper wearing of a seat belt will reduce the protection in an accident.
•  Seat belts should be adjusted as tightly as possible, consistent with comfort to properly secure the wearer in the seat.
Graphic
•  The seat belts provided for your vehicle are designed for people of adult size, must be properly used and maintained.
•  For usage of adult seat belt to secure children refer to section on manual for child seat positions and use a child restraint systems
Graphic
•  Passengers should not move out of or change seats while the vehicle is moving. A passenger who is not wearing a seat belt can be thrown against the inside of the vehicle, against other occupants, or out of the vehicle during a crash or emergency stop
•  Do not use any accessories on seat belts or modify in any way the seat belt system. Devices claiming to improve occupant comfort or reposition the seat belt can reduce the protection provided by the seat belt and increase the chance of serious injury in a crash
•  An accident or emergency stop, can damage your seat belt system, even if the accident is “minor”. Please have your Authorized Mahindra Dealer inspect the seat belt system after an accident
•  Please be aware that any unsecured item in your vehicle, such as your pet, unsecured child restraint system, a laptop or mobile phones, can become a projectile in the event of an accident or sudden stop, causing injuries to occupants in the vehicle
Never use a damaged seat belt system. A damaged seat belt will not provide protection in an accident, resulting in serious injury.
•  Seat belt systems can be prone to abuse. They are not indestructible. They must be handled with care to avoid damage
•  Keep the belts clean and dry. Belt retraction may become difficult if the belts and webbing are soiled. If they need cleaning, use a mild soap solution or lukewarm water. Never use bleach, dye, or abrasive cleaners. These chemicals will severely weaken the belts
•  Retractors in 3-point type seat belts retract the seat belts when not in use. The inertia lock and coil spring allow the belts to remain comfortable on users during normal driving. During accidents or abrupt stops, inertia locks restrict the sudden forward movement of the wearer
Seat Belts - Patients
Persons with serious medical conditions should also wear a seat belt. Consult your doctor for specific recommendations before travel.
Seat Belts - Pregnant Women
Graphic
Pregnant women must also wear seat belts. Consult your doctor for specific recommendations.
The lap belt should be worn snugly and as low as possible over the hips. The shoulder belt should be worn across your shoulder, but never across the stomach area. When worn properly, the seat belt will protect both the mother and the foetus in an accident or emergency stop.
A pregnant woman should never wear the seat belt across the stomach area. This could lead to serious injuries to the foetus and/or the pregnant mother.
Never wear twisted seat belts. Excessive forces will be transferred from the belt to the wearer, in a collision, resulting in serious personal injury.
Each seat belt is meant for use by one person only. Using one seat belt for more than one person at a time is dangerous. The seat belt will not be able to spread the impact forces properly leading to serious injuries.
Never put a belt around a child being carried on the occupant's lap. This could lead to serious injuries.
Seat Belt Usage is Necessary to:
•  Reduce the possibility of being thrown from your vehicle
•  Reduce the possibility of injuries to upper body, lower body and legs during an accident
•  Hold the driver in a position which allows better control of the vehicle
Children who are too large for child restraint systems should always occupy the rear seat and use the vehicle seat belts. The lap portion should be fastened snug on the hips and as low as possible and the shoulder strap should be across the child's shoulder, not the neck or face. If you are unable to position the strap across the child's shoulder, the child should remain in a booster seat. Frequently check the seat belt to be sure it remains snug and in position. A squirming child could cause the seat belt to come out of position.
6.6 Fastening the Seat Belt
6.6.1 Three Point type (if equipped)
Graphic
Graphic
Adjust the seat as needed and sit up straight and well back in the seat. To fasten your seat belt, pull the webbing out of the retractor and insert the metal tongue into the buckle. There will be an audible “click” when the tab locks into the buckle. Pull up on the shoulder strap to tighten the lap belt across your hips. The seat belt retractor will pull in any slack in the shoulder strap. A slow and easy motion will allow the belt to extend and let you move your body around freely.
Graphic
Periodically check the seat belt as you ride to be sure it remains snug and in position. If there is a sudden stop or impact, the belt will lock into position. It will also lock (restrict) if you try to lean forward too quickly.

6.8 CRS Using ISOFIX (If equipped)
•  When using the “ISOFIX” lower latch system, all unused vehicle rear seat belt metal latch plates or tabs must be latched securely in their seat belt buckles and the seat belt webbing must be retracted behind the child restraint to prevent the child from reaching and taking hold of un-retracted seat belts.
•  Unlatched metal latch plates or tabs may allow the child to reach the un-retracted seat belts which may result in strangulation and a serious injury or death to the child in the child restraint.
•  Child restraint anchorages are designed to withstand only those loads imposed by correctly fitted child restraints. Under no circumstances are they to be used for adult seat belts or harnesses or for attaching other items or equipment to the vehicle.
•  Do not modify child restraints.
•  Do not hold child on your lap when the vehicle is moving.
•  Do not leave children unattended in vehicle.
•  If vehicle has been involved in an accident, the child restraints checked by properly trained technicians.
•  Do not use pillows, books or towels to boost child’s height.
•  Make sure that children sit in an upright position.
•  When using a child seat with a seat belt, make sure that the seat belt is not slack or twisted.
•  Make sure that the top tether strap is not slack or twisted and is properly located on the anchor point.

7 SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) (if equipped)
7.1 Airbags
Your vehicle is equipped with the following airbags:
•  A frontal airbag for the driver
•  A frontal airbag for the front passenger.
Airbags are located in:
•  The steering wheel hub
•  The passenger side instrument panel
They are indicated by “AIRBAG” embossed on the covers.
An airbag is not designed to deploy in every type of crash. Depending on the type of accident or impact, the front airbags independently deploy thereby protecting the occupants. It is not necessary that ALL the airbags deploy during an accident.
To minimize the risk of severe injury in the event of a crash, every passenger must always wear their seat belt (see the chapter on Seat Belts in this manual). The airbags inflate very quickly with great force. Do not position any part of your body too close to a airbag, you or especially children could be seriously injured/killed by a deploying airbag.
7.2 Introduction
The airbags are designed to provide further protection to the vehicle occupants in addition to the primary protection provided by the seat belts and seat belt pre-tensioners.
The primary components of the system are the sensors which measure the crash severity. In the event of a significant frontal impact, the airbags inflate to work in conjunction with the seat belts and help reduce injuries mainly to the driver's or front passenger's head/chest.
Seat belts are the primary restraint system in the vehicle. An airbag provides supplemental protection in addition to the seat belts.
All occupants, including the driver, should always wear their seat belts irrespective of presence of airbags to minimize the risk of severe injury in the event of a crash.
Airbags are more effective in reducing injuries when the seat belts are worn.
7.2.1 Driver and Front Passenger Air Bag(If equipped)
Your vehicle is equipped with a Airbag and lap/shoulder belts at both the driver and front passenger seating positions. The indications of the system's presence are the letters “AIR BAG” embossed on the airbag pad cover in the steering wheel and the passenger's side front panel pad above the glove box.
The SRS is designed to deploy the front airbags only when an impact is sufficiently severe and when the impact angle is less than ± 30° from the forward longitudinal axis of the vehicle.
Graphic
Graphic
Front airbags are not intended to deploy in side-impact, rear impact or rollover crashes. In addition, front airbags will not deploy in frontal crashes which are below the prescribed deployment threshold where risk of serious injuries is low.
Do not place any objects over the airbag or between the airbag and yourself.
7.2.2 Airbag System Malfunction Lamp
Graphic
Airbags do not require any regular maintenance of service. The airbag system malfunction lamp illuminates when the ignition is ON as self check confirming normal operations of airbag system and malfunction lamp.
This lamp monitors airbag sensor assembly, airbag sensors, indicator lamp, seat belt pre-tensioner assemblies, inflators, interconnecting wiring and power sources.
If either of the following conditions occur, there is a malfunction of the airbags or seat belt pre-tensioner. Immediately contact your Mahindra Dealer.
•  The lamp does not glow when the ignition is switched ON or glows beyond six (6) seconds after switching the ignition ON
•  The lamp comes ON at any other time, even briefly
•  The lamp comes ON intermittently
Never make any modifications to your vehicle which could affect the performance of your airbag system. In particular, changes to the vehicle frame, bumpers, bull bar, front fenders, ride height, suspension, seat belts, interior trim, seats or steering wheel (especially covers, pads or other trim), could prevent proper deployment of the airbag. If you need to make any modifications to accommodate any disability you may have, please contact your Authorized Mahindra Dealer.
Never try to open or strike the airbag cover. If the airbag cover is cracked or damaged in any way, the airbag may not function as intended. Take the vehicle to an Authorized Mahindra Dealer.
Even if the airbags do not deploy during an accident, take your vehicle to an authorized Mahindra Dealer for a thorough inspection of the airbag and seat belt systems, no matter how minor the accident. The airbag system could have been damaged, and may not work as intended in the future, resulting in serious injury.
7.2.3 Airbag Inflation/Deployment
The airbag sensors constantly monitor the forward deceleration of the vehicle. If an impact results in a forward deceleration beyond the designed threshold level, the system triggers the airbag inflators. This initiates a chemical reaction which quickly fills the airbags with non-toxic gas.
Upon deployment, tear seams molded directly into the pad covers separate under pressure from the expansion of the airbags. Further opening of the covers allows full inflation of the airbags. A fully inflated airbag, in combination with a properly worn seat belt, slows the driver's or the passenger's forward motion, reducing the risk of head and chest injury.
After complete inflation, the airbag immediately starts deflating, enabling the driver to maintain forward visibility and the ability to maneuver or operate other controls.
Deployment of the airbags happen in a fraction of a second, producing a loud noise releasing a ‘white smoke’ and residue along with a non-toxic gas. This does not indicate a fire. This smoke may remain inside the vehicle for some time, and may cause some minor irritation to the eyes, skin or breathing. Be sure to wash off any residue with soap and water as soon as possible to prevent any potential skin irritation. If you can safely exit the vehicle, you should do so immediately.
•  Do not modify, remove, strike or open the seat belt pre-tensioner assemblies, airbag sensor or surrounding area or wiring. Failure to follow these instructions may prevent them from activating correctly, cause sudden operation of the system or disable the system, which could result in serious injury
•  Parts of the airbag module (steering wheel hub, airbag cover and inflator) may be hot for several minutes after deployment. The airbags inflate only once
•  Do not cover the steering wheel, instrument panel, seats with any object (e.g. dash panel covers, seat covers) which may prevent the airbags from inflating properly
•  The airbags inflate with considerable force. While the system is designed to reduce serious injuries, primarily to the head and chest, it may also cause other, less severe injuries to the face, chest, arms and hands. These are usually in the nature of minor burns or abrasions and swelling, but the force of a deploying airbag can also cause more serious injuries, especially if an occupant's hands, arms, chest or head is in close proximity to the airbag module at the time of deployment. Sit straight and well back into the seat. Move your seat as far back as practical to allow room for airbag inflation, while still allowing you to properly operate/drive the vehicle
The front passenger should never sit on the edge of the seat, stand near the glove compartment, rest feet or other parts of the body on the dashboard when the vehicle is moving.
Graphic
The driver or front passenger who is too close to the steering wheel or dashboard can be seriously injured during airbag deployment.
•  The driver must sit as far back as possible from the steering wheel while still maintaining control of the vehicle
•  The front passenger must sit as far back as possible from the dashboard
•  Sitting improperly or out of position can cause occupants to be shifted too close to a deploying airbag, strike the interior structure or be thrown from the vehicle resulting in serious injury
Graphic
Graphic
•  Always sit upright with the seat back in an upright position, on the seat cushion centre with your seat belt on, legs comfortably extended and your feet on the floor
•  All vehicle occupants must be properly restrained using the seat belts
•  All infants and children must be placed in the rear seat of the vehicle in a child restraint seat and be properly restrained by seat belts
•  Front airbags can injure occupants improperly positioned in the front seats
•  Even with airbags, improperly belted and un-belted occupants can be severely injured when the airbag inflates. Always follow the precautions about seat belts, airbags and occupant safety contained in this manual
•  Do not modify the front seats. Modification of the front seats could interfere with the operation of the supplemental restraint system or side impact airbags
•  Do not place items under the front seats. Placing items under the front seats could interfere with the operation of the supplemental restraint system sensing components and wiring harnesses
7.2.4 Child Restraint and Airbag
Graphic
Never place a rear-facing child restraint in the front passenger’s seat. If the airbag deploys, injuries to the child may be fatal..
In addition, do not place front-facing child restraints in the front passenger’s seat either. If the front passenger airbag inflates, it could cause serious or fatal injuries to the child.
Extreme Hazard! Do not use a rear facing child restraint on a seat protected by an airbag in front of it!
Never put a child restraint in the front passenger’s seat. If the front passenger airbag inflates, it can cause serious or fatal injuries.
Never hold an infant or child on your lap. The infant or child could be seriously injured in the event of a crash. All infants and children should be properly restrained in appropriate child safety seats or seat belts in the rear seat.
Install the child restraint system on the rear outboard seats, and securely lock the child restraint system in position.
Always Buckle Children (ABC) in the back seat. It is the safest place for children of any age to ride.
7.2.5 Airbag Deployment
The images shown in this section are for illustrative purpose only. They may not look like your model/variant or vehicle.
Front Air bag’s
Graphic
Front air bags are designed to inflate in a frontal collision depending on the intensity, speed or angles of impact of the front collision.
Airbag Non-deployment
Impacts below a pre-determined threshold level may not cause the airbag’s to deploy in the following cases:
•  Collision with Utility Poles or Trees -
Graphic
Air bags may not inflate if the vehicle collides with objects such as utility poles or trees, where the point of impact is concentrated to one area and the full force of the impact is not delivered to the sensors.
•  Under-ride Situations -
Running under a truck's tail gate may not provide the decelerations necessary for airbag deployment. Just before impact, drivers often brake heavily. Such heavy braking lowers the front portion of the vehicle causing it to “ride” under a vehicle with a higher ground clearance. Air bags may not inflate in this “under-ride” situation where deceleration forces that are detected by sensors may be significantly reduced by such “under-ride” collisions.
Graphic
Rear-end Collisions -
Frontal air bags are not designed to inflate in rear collisions, where occupants are moved backward away from the airbags by the force of the impact. In this case, inflated air bags would not be able to provide any additional benefit.
Graphic
•  Frontal Impact -
Frontal impact beyond 30º range from head-on to the vehicle.
Graphic
•  Pot Holes or Stepped Surfaces -
Driving into a big pot-hole, stepped surface or hitting the far side of a hole/incline will not inflate the airbag.
Graphic
•  Rollover -
Graphic
Air bags will not inflate in rollover accidents where air bag deployment would not provide protection to the occupants.
•  Frontal Side Swipe Impact -
Frontal offset impact to the vehicle may not provide the deceleration force necessary for airbag deployment. In an angled collision, the force of impact may direct the occupants in a direction where the air bags would not be able to provide any additional benefit, and thus the sensors may not deploy any air bags.
Graphic
7.2.6 Airbag Replacement
Self-servicing or tampering with the airbag system is dangerous. An airbag could accidentally deploy causing serious injuries, or will not deploy when there is a need. Always take your vehicle to an authorized Mahindra dealer for inspection and repairs.
7.2.7 Self Removing SRS Related Parts
Self removing the instrument panel, steering wheel, seats or airbag related parts or sensors is not recommended. Airbags could accidentally activate and cause serious injuries, or they may not deploy when there is a need. Visit an authorized Mahindra dealer if these parts must be removed.
7.2.8 Airbag Disposal
Improper disposal of an airbag or a vehicle with live airbags can be extremely dangerous. Approach an authorized Mahindra dealer to do these jobs.
7.2.9 Airbag Repair
If the front airbag cover or IP airbag cover shows signs of damage or having been removed, the vehicle should be towed to the nearest authorized Mahindra dealer for repair. Do not attempt to self repair or reinstall the cover.
7.2.10 Airbag Maintenance
For cleaning the airbag covers/areas, use only a soft dry cloth or one which has been moistened with plain water. Solvents or cleaners could adversely affect the airbag covers and proper deployment of the system.

11 REVERSE PARKING ASSISTANCE SYSTEM (RPAS)
11.1 Reverse Parking Assistance System (RPAS) – Type 1 (If equipped)
Reverse parking assistance system is provided to aid the driver while parking the vehicle in reverse at a speed of less than 5 kmph. While reversing, RPAS will detect the obstacles at the rear side of the vehicle within the sensing zone, which cannot be viewed through the internal rear view mirror and the outside rear view mirrors. The RPAS will then alert the driver by a beep sound about the location of the detected obstacle and the distance from the vehicle. The alert sound level will vary proportional to the distance. Smaller the distance shorter the interval between the beeps.
Four RPAS sensors are located at the rear bumper to provide complete rear view to the driver for hassle free parking.
Graphic
Magnetic devices present in the detection range could vastly affect the sensor performance and the distance displayed may not be accurate.
11.1.1 Working Principle
•  On engaging the gear in reverse, the RPAS system gets activated automatically and the vehicle image appears in the infotainment screen. Display bars below the car image indicate the obstacles behind the vehicle
•  When the obstacle comes in the sensing zone, the system starts giving the indication based on the distance and direction of the obstacle as defined in the detecting zones. The closer the obstacle, more display bars are illuminated
RPAS Information on Infotainment Screen (If equipped)
Graphic
Graphic
RPAS display on the infotainment screen gives the following information:
•  Left zone indicates obstacle on the left hand side
•  Center zone indicates obstacle in the center
•  Right zone indicates obstacle on the right hand side
Display bars 1, 2, 3 and 4 indicate how close the obstacle distance is from the vehicle rear bumper, with bar 1 being very close and bar 4 being distant. The infotainment screen display’s a STOP! symbol if the obstacle is less than 50 cm from the vehicle rear bumper.
Graphic

Operation of RPAS
1. Start the vehicle (IGN is turned ON)
2. Change the gear to reverse (engage the reverse gear). The RPAS will be displayed on the infotainment screen.
Graphic
Graphic
3. Start moving the vehicle in the reverse direction
4. Display bars in the respective direction will glow according to obstacles in its path

Graphic
Graphic
•  If the obstacle is between 75 to 100 cm, bar 3 & 4 will be turned ON
Graphic
Graphic
•  If the obstacle is between 50 to 75 cm, bar 2, 3 & 4 will be turned ON
Graphic
Graphic
•  If the obstacle is less than 50 cm, all bars in that direction will be turned ON and a STOP! symbol will be displayed
Graphic

5. The alert sound can be heard from the driver and co-driver side speaker. Frequency of the beep will increase if obstacles comes closer (crossing each display bar) and the sound will be continuous if any of the obstacle is less than 50 cm
6. The RPAS distance displayed will be the minimum of distances sensed by left, center and right sensors. For eg. Assume 3 obstacles are placed as below;
•  Obstacle at left at 60 cm
•  Obstacle at center at 90 cm
•  Obstacle at right at 110 cm
On engaging the gear in reverse, infotainment will display as below. Along with this, a beep sound can be heard from the driver & co-driver speakers. Frequency of the beep will increase if the obstacle comes closer (crossing each zones) and the sound will be continuous if any of the obstacles is less than 50 cm.
