Tata Punch 2021 Important Information User Manual

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

In this Owner’s Manual, you will find the text under the headings “WARNING” and “NOTE” which highlights important information. Pay particular attention to these highlighted messages.

NOTE
Indicates additional information that will assist you in gaining the optimum benefit and care for your vehicle.

WARNING
Indicates procedures or information that must be followed precisely in order to avoid the possibility of severe personal injury and serious damage to the vehicle.

Safe Driving

Safety consciousness not only ensures your safety and the safety of other road users, but it also helps to reduce the wear and tear on your vehicle.

Safe driving depends on:

  1. How quickly you make decisions to avoid an accident.
  2. Your ability to concentrate.
  3. How well you can see and judge objects.
  4. How well familiar you are with your vehicle controls and its capabilities.
  5. Test

NOTE
Fatigue is a result of physical or mental exertion that impairs judgment. Driver fatigue may be due to inadequate sleep, extended work hours, strenuous work or non-work activities or combination of other factors. Take rest at regular intervals.

Safety Tips

  1. Always take into account the road conditions, weather conditions, vehicle speed in order to prevent accidents.
  2. Turn ‘ON’ the side indicators at least 30 meters before taking a turn or changing the lane.
  3. Decelerate to a safe speed before taking turn. Do not apply brakes during cornering.
  4. When overtaking other vehicles, watch out for the oncoming vehicle.
  5. Never drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  6. If your vehicle is equipped with an infotainment/navigation system, set and make changes to your travel route only when the vehicle is parked.
  7. Program radio presets with the vehicle parked, and use your programmed presets to make radio use quicker and simpler.

Driving Through Water

Do not drive through flooded areas. Judge the depth of water before driving through it. Otherwise, water may enter the vehicle interior or the engine compartment. If at all the situation demands that you have to drive through water then;

  1. Keep engine in higher RPM and crawl the vehicle in low gear.
  2. Flowing or rushing water creates strong forces. Driving through flowing water could cause the vehicle to about trying to drive through flowing water.
  3. Lightly apply the brake pedal to dry the liners until the brakes work normally once you are out of water.

WARNING
Do not attempt to start the engine if vehicle gets flooded due to water. Tow the vehicle to a safe place. Contact a nearest TATA MOTORS Authorized Service Centre.

Driving on a Rainy Day

  1. Check wiper blades, lights and brakes for proper functioning and condition.
  2. Check the tyre treads depth, the condition of the tread and tyre.
  3. Avoid harsh braking and sharp turns. It may cause loss of control and lead to a skid.
  4. For slowing down, shift to lower gears and brake gently.
  5. Keep lights ‘ON’ if visibility is poor.

Driving on Wet Roads
On wet road or during light showers, “Aquaplaning” can occur. “Aquaplaning” is the loss of direct contact between the road surface and the vehicle’s tires due to a water film forming between them. Steering or braking the vehicle can be very difficult, and loss of control can occur. There is no hard and fast rule about aquaplaning. The best advice is to slow down when the road is wet.

NOTE
If you have driven for a long time in heavy rain without braking, there may be a delayed reaction from the brakes when braking for the first time. You have to press the brake pedal more firmly. Maintain a greater distance from the vehicle in front.

Tata Punch Night Driving User Manual

Tata Punch User 2021 Night Driving Manual

Night Driving

  1. Ensure that all lights are working and windshield and window glasses are clean.
  2. Drive more slowly at night than in the daytime, as the visual range is restricted at night. Maintain a speed such that you can stop within illuminated distance of head lamps.
  3. Do not use the high beam unless inevitable. It may dazzle the driver of the oncoming vehicle, thus causing an accident.
  4. Use headlamp main/dip beam to alert other road users on turns/crossroads.
  5. Use side indicators for a lane change or turning.

Driving on Gradients
When climbing a gradient, the vehicle may begin to slow down and show a lack of power. If this happens, shift to a lower gear and apply power smoothly so that there is no loss of traction. When driving down a hill, the engine braking should be used by shifting into a lower gear. Do not drive in neutral gear or switch off the engine.

WARNING
On long and steep gradients you must reduce the load on the brakes by shifting early to a lower gear. This allows you to take advantage of the engine braking effect and helps avoid overheating of service brakes resulting in reduced braking efficiency.

On long and steep gradients you must reduce the load on the brakes by shifting early to a lower gear. This allows you to take advantage of the engine braking effect and helps avoid overheating of service brakes resulting in reduced braking efficiency.

SEAT BELTS

This section of the user manual describes your vehicleâ €™s seat belt, airbag, and Child restraints system. Please read and follow all these instructions carefully to minimize risk of severe injury or death. Seat belts are the primary restraints system in the vehicle. All occupants, including the driver, should always wear their seat belts to minimize the risk of injury. Sit back and adjust the front seat. Make sure that your seat is adjusted to a good driving position and that the back of the seat is upright.

Buckling the Shoulder Seat Belt

  • Grasp the tongue then slowly pull out the seat belt over the shoulder and across the chest. When the seat belt is long enough to fit, insert the tongue into the lock buckle until you hear a “CLICK” which indicates that the seat belt is securely locked. Position the lap portion of the seat belt across your pelvic bone, below your abdomen. To remove slack, pull up a bit on the shoulder seat belt. To loosen the lap portion seat belt if it is too tight, tilt the tongue and pull on the lap seat belt. A snug seat belt reduces the risk of sliding under the seat belt in a collision. Ensure that the seat belt running over the body (shoulder segment and lap segment) does not have any twist. The twisted seat belt may not offer effective protection when required.

Releasing the Seat Belt

To release the seat belt, push the red button on the lock buckle. The seat belt will automatically retract to its stowed position. If necessary, slide the tongue down the webbing to allow the seat belt to retract fully.Tata Punch User 2021 Night Driving Manual 01

NOTE
The above image is for reference purposes only.

Fixed Rear Centre Lap Seat Belt

When buckling, make sure you hear a click confirming that the tab is latched into the seat belt lock. To tighten it, pull the loose end through the buckle until the seat belt is comfortably adjusted around the hips.

WARNING
Each seating position and seat belt assembly must only be used by one occupant. It is not recommended to put a seat belt around a child, being carried on an occupant’s lap. Be careful not to damage or tamper the seat belt webbing or hardware. Inspect the seat belt system periodically, checking for cuts, frays, or loose parts. A frayed or torn seat belt could rip apart in a collision and leave you with no protection.

  • If the seat belt webbing or hardware is damaged, get it replaced immediately at TATA Motors Authorized service center.
  • Do not insert any items such as coins, clips, etc. into the seat belt buckles, and be careful not to spill liquids into these parts. If foreign materials get into a seat belt buckle, the seat belt will not work properly.
  • Do not wear seat belts over hard, sharp, or fragile items in clothing, such as pens, keys, spectacles, etc.
  • 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 collision.

Tata Punch Seat Belts with Pretension User Manual

Tata Punch 2021 Seat Belts with Pre-tension User Manual

Seat Belts with Pre-tension

You can use the pre-tensioner seat belts in the same manner as ordinary seat belts. The seat belt pre-tensioner system works in conjunction with the SUPPLEMENTARY RESTRAINTS SYSTEM (SRS-Airbags). In the event of a collision, as may be necessary, the pre-tensioner tightens the seat belt so that it fits the occupant’s body more snugly. When the pre-tensioner activates, there could be some noise and release of smoke. This is normal and there are no health hazards or fire risks.

WARNING
In a collision, the pre-tensioner seat belt assembly mechanism becomes hot during activation. Do not touch the pre-tensioner seat belt assemblies for several minutes after they have been activated. If the vehicle has been involved in a collision, get it inspected immediately at the authorized TATA MOTORS SERVICE Center.

Seat Belts With Load Limiter (if equipped)

You can use the load limiter seat belts in the same manner as ordinary seat belts. The seat belt load limiter system works in conjunction with the SUPPLEMENTARY RESTRAINTS SYSTEM (SRS-Airbags). In the event of a collision, as may be necessary, the load limiter reduces the load on the rib cage region of the occupant. If the vehicle has been involved in a collision, get it inspected immediately at Authorized TATA MOTORS SERVICE Center.

Use of Seat Belts for Pregnant Women

WARNING
Pregnant women must wear a correctly positioned seat belt. It is safer for the mother as well as an unborn child.
A pregnant woman should wear the lap part of the seat belt across the Pelvic Bone and as snugly across the hips as possible. Keep the seat belt low so that it does not come across the abdomen. That way the strong bones of the hips will take the force if there is a collision.Tata Punch User 2021 Seat Belts with Pre-tensione Manual 01

The seat belt warning lamp reminds you to fasten the seat belt.

  • If the driver does not fasten seat belt, the seat belt reminder lamp will blink and a buzzer will sound for predefined du-ration until the driver seat belt is buck-led.
  • If the front passenger seat is occupied by adult who does not fasten seat belt, seat belt reminder lamp will blink and a buzzer will sound for predefined du-ration until the front passenger seat belt is buckled.
  • If this system is also provided for other than Front row seats, applicable above warning will appear until seat belts are buckled.
  • If front passenger seat is occupied by child, the system may detect occupancy and warn with front passenger seat belt warning. It is not taken to mean child can occupy front passenger seat and use seat belt. Please refer CRS section for recommended seating position.

NOTE
Using unauthorized after-market seat cover may affect function of occupant sensor. TATA MOTORS does not recommended any non-validated seat cover on seats.

CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEM (CRS)

TATA MOTORS strongly recommends the use of Child Restraint Systems (CRS) for all children up to age of 12 years and to be placed at recommended positions only. Children travelling without recommended CRS and seated at other positions may face serious injuries in case of a collision.
CRS can be installed in the vehicle using seat belts and/or ISOFIX only (if equipped) or ISOFIX with Top Tether (if equipped) or ISOFIX with support leg.
If the child seat is equipped with support leg(s), always fit the support leg(s) directly to the floor. Never fit support leg(s) to a footrest or on any other object.
The harness system of CRS holds the child in place, and in a collision, acts to keep the child positioned in the seat and reduce the risk of injuries.
All children below age of two years must always ride in a rear-facing infant CRS.
Keep children in a forward-facing CRS with a harness until they reach the size or weight limit allowed by your CRS manufacturer.
Once your child outgrows the forward-facing CRS, your child is ready for a booster seat.

Selection and Installation of CRS

Always select the CRS that complies with latest safety standards (AIS072 / ECE R44). The CRS are classified according to the child’s size, height and weight. Select the appropriate CRS for your child. Ensure that the CRS is securely installed in the vehicle and subsequently child fits properly in it and wears harness of CRS. For installation, please refer CRS manufacturer’s instruction manual.Tata Punch User 2021 Seat Belts with Pre-tensione Manual 02

WARNING
If your vehicle is equipped with a front passenger Airbag (PAB) and does not have PAB deactivation switch, do not in-stall a rear-facing CRS in the front passenger seat. If the PAB inflates, a child in a rear facing CRS could be seriously injured or killed.

If you install a CRS in the rear seat, slide the front seat far enough forward so that the child’s feet do not touch the front seat-back. This will help avoid injury to the child in the event of a collision.

NOTE
Children could be endangered in a collision if their CRS is not properly se-cured in the vehicle. Be sure to secure the child in the restraint system according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

WARNING
Do not use an infant carrier or a child safety seat that “hooks“ over a seat-back, it will not provide adequate protection in a collision.

After a collision, we recommend to get seat belts, seats, ISOFIX and top-tether anchorages (as may be applicable) investigated at TATA MOTORS Authorized service center.

NOTE
CRS in a closed vehicle can become very hot. To prevent burns, check the seating surface and buckles before placing your child in CRS.

WARNING

  1. Do not leave unattended children in your vehicle.
  2. Do not modify CRS in any way.
  3. Do not install a booster seat or a booster cushion with only the lap strap of the seat belt.
  4. Do not install a booster seat or a booster cushion with a seat belt that is slack or twisted.
  5. Do not put the safety seat belt under your child’s arm or behind its back.
  6. Do not use pillows, books or towels to boost your child’s height.
  7. Make sure that your children sit in an upright position.
  8. Do not allow children to stand up or kneel on either the rear or the front seats. An unrestrained child could suffer serious or fatal injuries during a collision.
  9. Do not leave any toys or other objects loose in the CRS or on the seat while the vehicle is in motion.

Each CRS should be used for one child only. If the airbag SRS warning indicator in the instrument cluster illuminates continuously, it means that there is a malfunction in the system. Remove the CRS from front passenger seat and contact your TATA MOTORS authorized service center.Tata Punch User 2021 Recommended CRS Position as per the Vehicle Matrix Manual 01Tata Punch User 2021 Recommended CRS Position as per the Vehicle Matrix Manual 02Tata Punch User 2021 Recommended CRS Position as per the Vehicle Matrix Manual 03Tata Punch User 2021 Recommended CRS Position as per the Vehicle Matrix Manual 04

SUPPLEMENTARY RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) (AIRBAGS) (if equipped)

The airbag ‘SRS’ system comprises of the following components depending upon the provided safety features in your vehicle.

  1. Seat belt Pre-tensioners.
  2. Seat belt with load limiters.
  3. Driver Airbag.
  4. Front Passenger Airbag.
  5. Airbag ‘SRS’ ECU (Electronic Control Unit).
  6. Collision Sensors.
  7. SRS wiring harness.
  8. SRS Warning lamp

The System is active when the ignition switch is in the “ON” position or the ignition mode is “ON”. Airbags are designed to inflate in collisions when required. In the event of a collision, the collision sensors will detect signals, and if the Airbag ECU judges that the signals represent a severe collision, will trigger the airbags. The inflated Airbags

provide a cushion to the occupants. The Airbag inflates and deflates so quickly that you may not even realize that it has activated. The Airbag will neither hinder your view nor make it harder to exit the vehicle. Airbag inflation is virtually instantaneous and occurs with considerable force, ac-companied by loud noise and smoke, which is normal. The inflated airbag, together with seat belts, limit the movement of an occupant, thereby reducing the risk of injury. When an airbag inflates, you may see some smoke-like particles. The particles are a normal by-product of the process that generates the non-toxic gas used for airbag inflation. These airborne particles may irritate the skin, eyes, nose, or throat. If you have skin or eye irritation, rinse the area with water. For nose or throat irritation, move to fresh air. Also sometimes the smoke can cause breathing problems. In such cases, it is recommended to get fresh air promptly.
After inflation, airbag provides a gradual cushioning effect for the occupant there after deflates. It is not advisable to drive your vehicle after the airbags have been deployed. If you are involved in another collision, the airbags will not be in place to protect you.Tata Punch User 2021 Recommended CRS Position as per the Vehicle Matrix Manual 05

NOTE
The above image is for reference purpose only.

NOTE
Open your windows and doors as soon as possible after collision to reduce prolonged exposure to the smoke and powder released by the inflating Airbag.

  • Do not touch the Airbag container’s internal components immediately after an Airbag has inflated. The parts that come into contact with an inflating Airbag may be very hot.
  • Always wash exposed skin areas thoroughly with lukewarm water and mild soap. The driver airbag is mounted in the center of the steering wheel. The front passenger airbag is located inside the dashboard in front of the passenger seat. The vehicle fitted with the airbags has suitable indications on the steering wheel and on the dashboard. The word ‘AIRBAG’ is embossed on the airbag covers.

WARNING
Even in vehicles with Airbags, you and your passengers must always wear the seat belts provided. In order to minimize the risk and severity of injury in the event of a collision.

  • ALWAYS use seat belts and CRS –during every trip and at all times. Even with airbags, you can be seriously injured or killed in a collision if you are not wearing seat belt properly or not wearing seat belt when airbag inflates. You and your passengers should never sit or lean unnecessarily close to the Airbags. Move your seat as far back as possible from front Airbags, while still maintaining control of the vehicle.
  • All occupants should sit upright with the seatback in an upright position, center on the seat cushion with their seat belt on, legs comfortably extended and their feet on the floor until the vehicle is parked and the engine is turned off. If an occupant is out of position during a collision, the rapidly deploying Airbag may forcefully contact the occupant causing serious or fatal injuries.
  • Do not allow the front passenger to place their feet or legs on the dashboard.

ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM (ABS)

ABS regulates brake pressureTata Punch User 2021 CHILD LOCK Manual 01in such a way that the wheels do not lock when you brake. This allows you to continue steering the vehicle when braking. The ABS warning lamp in the instrument cluster lights up when the ignition is switched on. It goes out when the engine is running.

WARNING
If ABSTata Punch User 2021 CHILD LOCK Manual 01is faulty, the wheels could lock when braking. The steer ability and braking characteristics may be severely impaired. There is an increased danger of skidding and accidents. Drive on carefully. Have ABS checked immediately at a TATA MO-TORS Authorized Service Centre as soon as possible.

While Braking

  1. If ABS intervenes: continue to press the brake pedal vigorously until the braking situation is over.

  2. To make a full brake application: press the brake pedal with full force
    If ABS intervenes when braking, you will feel a pulsing in the brake pedal. The pulsating brake pedal can be an indication of hazardous road conditions, and functions as a reminder to take extra care while driving. 

WARNING
The stopping distance required for vehicles with ABS may be slightly more than for conventional brake systems but ABS will still offer the advantage of helping you maintain directional control. However, remember that ABS will not compensate for bad road or weather conditions or poor driver judgment. Drive within safety margins taking into consideration into consideration prevailing weather and traffic conditions.

ELECTRONIC BRAKEFORCE DISTRIBUTION (EBD)

EBD monitorsTata Punch User 2021 CHILD LOCK Manual 02and controls the brake pressure on the rear wheels to improve driving stability while braking. EBD provides optimal braking pressure distribution between front and rear wheels to optimize braking distance and to ensure vehicle stability by means of lowering braking pressure increase at rear wheels.

WARNING
If EBD is malfunctioning, the rear wheels can lock, e.g. under full braking. This increases the risk of skidding and an accident.
You should therefore adapt your driving style to the different handling characteristics. Have the brake system checked immediately at a TATA MOTORS Authorized Service Centre as soon as possible.

BRAKE SWAY CONTROL (BSC)

Detects tendency of instability during Braking in ABS-alone vehicles by monitoring individual wheel. Enhances vehicle stability by controlling braking pressure on individual wheels during partial braking.Tata Punch User 2021 CHILD LOCK Manual 03

STUCK MODE RECOVERY (TRACTION PRO) (if applicable)

Traction Pro mode helps the driver to get the vehicle moving if one of the front wheels is continuously spinning because of low grip from the road surface. This situation may arise due to road undulation, snow, mud, or any low-friction surface. These situations are automatically identified by ABS-driven Traction Pro mode and pop-up windows on the infotainment system support the driver. The driver can activate the Traction pro mode and take the vehicle out of the stuck situation without any external assistance. Once activated, the driver will be guided of further steps via the infotainment unit itself. Traction pro mode can be used only in the forward direction and cannot be used if both front wheels are spinning.

CAUTION
Please use Traction Pro Mode cautiously in extreme conditions where vehicle digs deep into the ground. which can cause vehicle’s body to touch the ground.
During activation of Traction Pro Mode, service brake may not deliver normal braking performance at very low speeds. In case vehicle rolls back on slope please be ready to use hand brake.

Ac On/off

Press the button to switch ON/OFF the AC. The indicator lamp in the button will light up when AC is ON.
tata Punch User 2021 Ac On/off Manual1

NOTE
The AC can be switched ‘ON’ only if the blower is ‘ON’ and engine is running.

When AC is switched ‘ON’, engine idling RPM increases marginally to adjust the AC compressor load.
When desired temperature is achieved Ac compressor will self-displace optimum refrigerant flow.

NOTE
Condensate may drip from the underside of the vehicle when it is in cooling mode. Traces of water on the ground are normal and are not a sign of leakage or malfunction. Ventilate the vehicle for a brief period during warm weather. This will speed up the cooling process and the desired vehicle interior temperature will be reached quickly.

  • Do not cover the air vents or air in-take grilles in the vehicle interior. If the AC is not used for a long period, such as during winter, it may not give the best performance when you start using it again. Operate the AC at least once a month to maintain optimum performance. While you start the vehicle after a long duration (more than 15 days), follow the procedure for better AC performance:
  • Start the vehicle and allow the engine to idle for 2-3 minutes. AC should be off in this period. Switch the AC on and run it for another 2~3 minutes while the engine idles. This circulates the refrigerant and oil to lubricate the internal parts of the air-conditioning system.

PRE DRIVING CHECKS

Make Sure That

  • Windshield, windows, mirrors, lights, and reflectors are clean and unobstructed.
  • Tool kit, jack & handle, warning triangle, owner’s manual, first aid kit and vehicle documents are available and stored at their locations.

WARNING
Do not put any mat on the floor carpet near control pedals area

  1. All doors, engine bonnet and tailgate are securely closed and latched.
  2. All occupants should always wear seat belts or suitable CRS as applicable while travelling.
  3. Objects, luggage or loads are secured correctly against slipping or tipping.
  4. The rear seat is securely latched.
  5. There is sufficient fuel for the trip.

Daily Check

  1. Tires for unusual wear, cracks or damage and embedded foreign material such as nails, stones, etc.
  2. Traces of fluid and oil below vehicle.
  3. Water dripping below the car is normal. This is due to the usage of air conditioning system.
  4. All lamps, wipers, wiper blades and horn for proper operation.
  5. All switches, gauges and telltales are working properly.
Adjust
  • Seats, head restraints and steering wheel position.
  • Adjust all the mirrors before you start the car.
Weekly Check
  1. Engine oil level
  2. Coolant level
  3. Brake fluid level
  4. Windshield washer fluid level
  5. Battery electrolyte level
  6. Fuel level

Tire pressure should always be measured in cold conditions. Do a check of the tire pressure and condition after every 15 days, including the pare tire.

DRIVING TIPS

Fuel consumption, engine, transmission, brake and tire wear are mainly affected by the below factors:

Operating conditions of your vehicle
Your personal driving style

Operating Conditions

Avoid frequent starts and stops as these actions increase the fuel consumption of the vehicle.
Always ensure correct tire pressure.
Do not carry any unnecessary weight.
Regularly service your vehicle and adhere to the recommended service maintenance schedule.

Personal Driving Style

  1. Do not press the accelerator pedal when starting the engine.
  2. Do not warm up the engine when the vehicle is stationary.
  3. Always adapt your driving style to suit the prevailing road, and weather conditions, and maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front. Drive carefully.
  4. Avoid frequent, sudden acceleration and braking.
  5. Select appropriate gear according to varying speeds and load conditions.

NOTE
Do not rest your foot on the clutch pedal while driving.

  • Switch ‘OFF’ the engine in stationary traffic or at signals.
  • Keep an eye on the vehicle’s fuel consumption.
  • Safety systems are merely aids designed to assist driving. You are responsible for the distance between the vehicles in front, for vehicle speed and anticipating braking in good time.

WARNING
You could lose control of your vehicle if you try to adjust the driver’s seat, head restraint, mirror, steering wheel and fasten the seat belt while driving. There is a risk of an accident. Press the clutch fully while shifting the gears. The reverse gear should be engaged only when the vehicle is stationary. Trans-mission may get damage by trying to shift into re-verse gear while the vehicle is moving. Wait for 5 seconds after declutching to ensure smooth engagement of the reverse gear or shift into one of the forward gears for a moment while clutch is pressed fully. This will avoid grinding of re-verse gear while shifting.

Recommended Fuel Economy Speeds

Gear Petrol
Speed(kmph)
1 20
2 35
3 55

5 95

Good Driving Practices

  1. Slow down before you shift to a lower gear. This helps the engine to keep a lower rpm and result in less wear and tear of the engine components.
  2. Avoid frequent brake application which can cause overheating of brakes.
  3. Slow down the vehicle when you drive in cross winds to get better control over the vehicle.
  4. Avoid high speed when cornering or turning.
  5. Press the clutch fully while shifting gears.
  6. Make sure that vehicle is completely stationary before you attempt to shift in reverse gear.
  7. Drive slowly on wet roads.
  8. You can get extra braking from the engine by shifting to a lower gear. This can help you to maintain a safe speed and prevent your brakes from over-heating specially while going down a hill.

Tips For Obtaining Better Fuel Efficiency

  1. Always maintain the specified tire pressure during fuel top-ups and also before a long trip. Vehicle running with low tire pressure will consume more fuel than the one running with specified tire pressure.
  2. Keep the vehicle clean. Get rid of the unwanted stuff lying in the boot etc., to reduce weight.
  3. Regularly inspect your vehicle for any leakages, worn out wires, damaged by rat bites etc.
  4. Always follow periodic & regular serve.
  5.  In places with high dust content. Clean the air filter element at every 5000 km.
  6. Anticipate the road conditions and drive in a smooth manner.
  7. Do not accelerate excessively when you are in lower gears (1st or 2nd). Be gentle on the accelerator when you are in traffic. In lower gears, opening up the throttle will increase the engine rpm while keeping the vehicle at lower speeds. This reduces the fuel efficiency of the vehicle.
  8. Be in the maximum possible higher gear at a given speed. This reduces the engine operating speeds which means the engine is running at lower rpm (Revolutions per Minute) for the same vehicle speed. Lesser the number of engine revolutions lesser the fuel burned.
  9. Avoid harsh braking.
  10. Maintain healthy driving habits & while decelerating, do coasting in gear and not in neutral or with clutch pedal pressed.
  11. Use the car AC only when you require it. For cooling, keep the blower speeds low, as at higher blower speeds, the AC consumes more electric power which is ultimately drawn from the engine by burning fuel.
  12. Avoid unnecessary extra electrical loading on the car.
  13. Stop the engine wisely at traffic signals. Switch ‘OFF’ the engine at the traffic signal only if the stoppage time is high (typically more than 30 sec).
  14. When you drive on highways, close all the windows. This reduces the drag on the vehicle and improves fuel efficiency.
  15. Do not over speed. Follow the speed limits. With increasing speed, the engine rpm increases to overcome external air resistance and this reduces fuel efficiency.

Running-in Period
The purpose of running in a car is to give time for the mechanical parts to settle so that they work efficiently. This involves gentle acceleration and not revving the engine too much. This is done by changing gears early for the first 1,500 – 1,800 km. This will increase the life of the engine. The more you look after the engine when it is new, the more satisfied you will be with its performance in the future. Do not exceed the following road speeds during the running-in period.

Gear Petrol
Speed(kmph)
1 20
2 35

Avoid heavy loads, e.g. driving at full throttle, during this period. Change gears judiciously.

NOTE
Avoid excessive revving up of engine rpm. Do not keep the engine at idling for long duration.

REVERSE GEAR

To engage reverse gear, shift to reverse position as shown on the gear lever knob.Tata Punch User 2021 REVERSE GEAR Manual 01

DRIVING

Climbing Sharp Gradients On Loose Surfaces
Start off smoothly in a suitable gear. Accelerate smoothly so that there is no loss of traction by over-revving of the engine. Choose a smooth slope and select the appropriate gear so that gear changing in the middle of the climb is not required. Changing gears in the middle of the climb can cause loss of momentum and engine stalling. Shifting to lower gear has to be done cautiously to avoid loss of traction. Under no conditions should the vehicle be moved diagonally across a hill. The danger is in loss of traction and side-ways slip-page, possibly resulting in toppling over. If unavoidable, choose a mild angle and keep the vehicle moving. If the tires start to slip within few feet at the end of the climb, keep the vehicle stable by steering left and right. It gives in-creased grip to the tires. If the vehicle stalls or losses headway while climbing a steep hill, make a quick shift to reverse and allow the vehicle to move back with the help of engine braking.

Descending Sharp Gradients

Depending on the severity of the gradient, shift into appropriate gear. Use engine braking judiciously without over-revving the engine. Brake gently in such situations.

WARNING
When descending on sharp gradients, do not turn the ignition key to the ‘OFF’ position. The braking assist and steering assist may malfunction and the emission control system may be dam-aged.

AUTOMATED MANUAL TRANSMISSION (AMT) (If fitted)Tata Punch User 2021 REVERSE GEAR Manual 02

Parking

AMT does not have a parking position. The vehicle can be parked with the gearshift lever in any position.

  1. Apply the parking brake firmly.
  2. Press the brake pedal and shift the gearshift lever to the ‘R’ position on a downhill slope, or to the Auto ‘A’ mode or the ‘M’ position in the manual ‘M’ mode on an uphill slope or flat road and confirm the gear position by checking the gear position indicator on instrument cluster. Gear engagement (R or A) can be done with ignition ON/engine running condition only.
  3. Turn the key to ‘ACC’ position to switch off the engine. Before switching off the engine, run the engine in idle condition for at least 30 seconds and then switch off. This will allow the engine oil to lubricate the turbocharger, till its speed is fully reduced and also allow the unit to cool down.

WARNING
A quick burst on the accelerator before turning off the engine serves absolutely no practical purpose, it wastes fuel and is damaging especially to turbocharged engine.

WARNING
Do not switch the engine off when it is running at high speed. This will lead to premature turbocharger bearing wear.

NOTE
The AMT vehicle will shift itself into Neutral as a precautionary measure, if the vehicle is stationary and one or both of the front wheels spin on a low friction surface (e.g. Snow, mud, soft sand etc). AMT symbol will glow in the instrument cluster indicating an intervention from the Transmission Control Unit. Following steps need to be carried out sequentially in order to maneuver the vehicle in such a situation.

  1. Shift the gear shift lever to Neutral position and switch the ignition off.
  2. Press the brake pedal and crank the engine again.
  3. With the engine running, shift the gear position in Auto mode.
  4. March the vehicle with low input from the accelerator pedal as this will ensure that the wheels do not spin.

Driving (AMT)

Climbing Sharp Gradients
Apply the parking brake firmly so that the vehicle does not roll backwards.
Shift the gearshift lever to the “A” position while depressing the brake pedal. Make sure that the gear position indicator in the instrument cluster displays ‘1st’ gear.
Release the brake pedal and depress the accelerator pedal gradually, and when the vehicle starts to move, release the parking brake and depress the accelerator pedal to start off.
On climbing sharp gradients, never hold the vehicle at a stop using only the accelerator pedal or the creeping function. If you perform this operation for a certain period of time, this can also cause excessive damage to the clutch.

WARNING
Try not to hold the brake pedal down too long or too often while going down a steep or long hill.
This could cause the brakes to over-heat, resulting in reduced braking efficiency. Failure to take this precaution could result in loss of vehicle control.

Descending Sharp Gradients

Depress the brake pedal and shift the gear shift lever to the ‘A’ position. Make sure that the gear position indicator in the instrumental cluster displays ‘1st’ gear.
Release the brake pedal and depress the accelerator pedal slowly. Even if the accelerator pedal is not depressed, the clutch will be engaged when the vehicle speed increases.

Tata Punch BRAKING User Manual

Tata Punch 2021 BRAKING User Manual

BRAKING

Your vehicle has vacuum assisted brakes.
The distance needed to bring the vehicle to a halt increases with the speed of the vehicle. Start applying brake anticipating the distance and slow down gradually.

WARNING

  1. Do not use the brake pedal as a footrest.
  2. If you rest your foot on the brake pedal while driving, the braking system can overheat and cause fading of brake pads. This in-creases the stopping distance and can even cause the braking system to fail. There is a risk of an accident.
  3. Do not press the brake pedal and the accelerator pedal at the same time.
  4. Do not use the brake pedal as a footrest.
  5. If you rest your foot on the brake pedal while driving, the braking system can overheat and cause fading of brake pads. This in-creases the stopping distance and can even cause the braking system to fail. There is a risk of an accident.
  6. Do not press the brake pedal and the accelerator pedal at the same time.

If you have driven for a long time in heavy rain without braking, there may be a delayed reaction from the brakes when you brake for the first time. This may also occur after the vehicle has been washed.

Brake performance may become poor and unpredictable if brakes are wet.
After you drive through water or if you wash the underside of the vehicle, test the brakes at slow speeds to see if the brakes work fine. If the brakes are less effective than normal, dry them by repeatedly applying the brakes at slow speeds until the brakes have regained their normal effectiveness.
Check traffic conditions before doing the above activity.

Braking On Downhill Gradients

When you drive on downhill slopes, re-duce the load on the brakes by shifting to a lower gear. This is called as engine braking and aids to reduce overheating and wear of brakes.

WARNING
Do not shift to lower gears on a slippery road surface to in-crease the engine’s braking effect. By doing so, the tyres could lose their grip.
There is an increased danger of skidding and accidents.

REVERSE PARK ASSIST WITH SENSOR (if available)

The Reverse Park Assist system is an electronic parking aid that will assist you to park your vehicle safely when in reverse gear mode. It provides audio and visual information through the vehicle’s infotainment system. Always look out for kids, pets and elderly people behind the vehicle before reversing.Tata Punch User 2021 VEHICLE PARKING Manual 01

There are ultrasonic sensors placed on the rear bumper. Number of sensors may vary depending on the variant.
Once the system is activated, the sensors will detect how near the obstacle is from the bumper, and this information would be displayed on the vehicle’s infotainment system. In base variants, only audio warn-ing shall be given through a buzzer.

WARNING
Due to ultrasonic sensor technology limitations, detection of obstacles from 0-25 cm is not guaranteed.

Variant, where infotainment display is not present and audio warning, is given through a buzzer, on activating the Re-verse Park Assist system, a tone will be played within first two seconds to indicate the proper functioning of the system. After these two seconds, normal functioning of the system will continue. If no tone is heard for first two seconds, it shall mean that RPAS system is faulty. The owner should, in that case, go to the nearest dealer for rectification.

Park Assist Indications

Tata Punch User 2021 VEHICLE PARKING Manual 02

Operation
The reverse park assist system can also be activated manually through infotainment screen. Display will be seen on infotainment screen.

Reverse Park Assist Limitations
Reverse Park Assist system is not a collision avoiding system. It is solely the driver’s responsibility to park the vehicle safely.
Reverse Park Assist feature works on ultra sound echo technology, due to which performance is not guaranteed in following scenarios:

  1. If the object has a sharp edge surface, where surface may divert echoes from sensor reception.
  2. If object is mesh fence made up of thin wires, where echoes can’t be given by the surface.
  3. Fast moving objects passes in the sensor’s field of detection, where echoes are not processed by the system.
  4. If object is made/covered by foam or sponge or snow where ultrasonic sound signals are absorbed.
  5. Objects close to the rear bumper can go undetected by the Reverse Park Assist’s field of detection. Driver should use extreme caution while parking the vehicle.
  6. If height of the bumper is changed due to alteration to the suspension or other causes
  7. If the sensor areas are extremely hot from direct sunlight or cold due to freezing weather.
  8. If Sensors are covered by a hand, sticker, accessory, etc.
  9. If ultrasonic noise is present around Vehicle due to other vehicle sensors, horn, engine, air braking system (large vehicles), Exhaust Fans, Wireless transmitters or mobile phones
  10. If the vehicle speed exceeds 10kmph, the system will not warn you even though objects are detected, error message ‘Vehicle Speed is high, drive slowly!’ will appear.
  11. Driving on uneven road surfaces e.g. Gravel, unpaved roads, Artificial Speed Breakers, or gradient.
  12. Poles of square/rectangular cross section might not be detected

WARNING
Due to any reason, if the sensor gets misaligned or loses its intended fitment position, contact your dealer for referment.

NOTE
Turning the ignition ‘OFF’ ‘while the park assist feature is active would disable it.

Reverse Park Assist System Preventive Maintenance

  • Regularly clean the sensors and keep them free from dust, ice, mud, water, chewing gum etc. for proper working of the system.

Use a smooth cloth for cleaning.

  • Do not use water at high pressure for cleaning the sensor or camera.
  • Do not cover the sensors surface with any additional fitment. This will interrupt park assist performance.
  • Do not remove mud, snow on the sensors using stick or hard material. Use normal water and soft cloth.

General Warning 

  1. In low light conditions, the screen may darken or image may appear faint.
  2.  If the tire sizes are changed, the position of the fixed guidelines dis-played on the screen may change.
  3. In case of damage of the rear portion of the vehicle, Reverse Park Assist sensors position may change which causes wrong visual information on display. In case of damage make sure that Reverse Park Assist sensors are fitted properly at the intended location.
  4.  In case of uneven road conditions or uphill or downhill conditions, do not de-pend on Reverse Park Assist aid.
  5.  Do not apply any kind of force on the reverse park assist sensors.
  6. Always use rear view mirrors along with Reverse Park Assist for confirming the safety of the rear and the sur-rounding conditions.
