I guess you have an HDI engine (possibly RHZ) as this fault is very common on that model. Quite possibly it will just disappear. It is not likely to be the turbo. Swap the electrovalve (pneumatic solenoid) which controls the turbo with one of the others (there are three beside each other on the inside of the wing, and see what happens. If the fault moves elsewhere that confirms electrovalve fault - so replace valve it.
If not check the vacuum hoses and test things such as the EGR for vacuum leaks. Another possibility is a faulty (or even just dirty) MAF. This is very easy to remove- it is on air intake - so remove and clean with wWD40 or similar.

My 02 Grand Vitara 2.0 RHZ HDI, was suffering from the same problems, giving me codes for selenoids valves, replaced the three of them did not solve the problem, finally a friend of mind told lets take down the Catalityc Converter, which we did and it was obstructed, took it apart, made a hole on the side eliminated everything inside, and solder it back, since then no more problems, the truck has more power, and no codes, after 20,000 kms this catalytic converter get obstructed, probably a factory defect,

Code po243 $7A tubo wastegate solenoid A does this mean high pressure or low pressure


Could be either. The code means the signal going to the computer is out of range. It does not specify too much voltage or too little.
Are you sure that is the code on a Grand Vitara ? That year and model would not have a turbo in the USA.

P2002 fault code on Suzuki grand vitara 2006. The


this is a complex car, and engines.
Just 1 code? and no pendings?
A DIESEL engine , and in USA , are ya> or in Canada?

the shop manual for all complex cars, is a must have.

P2 codes are factory codes, unique to only Suzuki ,
so use their books.
alldata dot com has it.

"Particulate Trap Efficiency Below Threshold Malfunction "
but cleaning it , is not the only way to fix it.
the manual covers this, and how the test works and what can make it fail, simple swaps or cleans dont always work.
RTM please.

Location of wastegate solenoid


If you do not know the location of the wastegate solenoid, how could you have properly tested it? Then, if you have not properly tested it, how could you possibly know that it actually needs to be replaced? - (just asking to provoke thought)

Hint: If you are getting a fault code that says "turbocharger wastegate solenoid control circuit" (like maybe a P0243), it would be wise to check the circuit before just throwing parts at the car...the solenoid might not be the problem.

With all that said, the answer to your question is that it is on the other end of the vacuum hose that goes to the waste gate valve - top rear of the engine above the left valve cover.

Check engine codes for a 1997 stratus the codes coming up are 12 31 and 55


12 Recently disconnected the battery (always stored)
55 End test.

CODE 31... depending on the model, code 31 can refer to two different systems. Please choose from one of the above links for specific information on each system.

Wastegate Solenoid Circuit Error
The ECM regulates turbocharger boost by opening and closing the "wastegate" as necessary. (The wastegate is a vacuum operated bypass valve that limits the ability of the turbo to provide boost.) The Wastegate Solenoid regulates the vacuum supply to the wastegate for proper operation.

Fault Code Description
  • 31 - Wastegate Solenoid circuit error
Symptoms
  • Lack of power or engine "ping" due to overboost by the turbocharger
Common Problems
  • The wastegate solenoid would be the most common cause for code 31 to set
  • Code 31 does not indicate a problem with the turbocharger or wastegate


Gear Position Switch (PRNDL) Error The Gear Position switch tells the ECM which position the shifter is in. The ECM will use this information to inhibit starter operation, change the transmission shift pattern as necessary, and provide the information for the electronic shift indicator display on the dash.

Fault Code Description
  • 31 - Gear Position switch (PRNDL) error
Symptoms
  • Engine may not crank over in Park or Neutral
  • Electronic shift indicator may flash
Common Problems
A maladjusted or failed Gear Position switch would be the most common cause for a code 31


Hope helps with this (remember rated this post).

Engine management light on ,suzuki grand vitara 2 litre turbo diesel,engine feels slugish


Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any fault codes stored. The check engine light is to alert you that the computer has noted a fault in one of the car's systems. Getting the codes will show what the computer has noted and curb the need for speculation. Most parts stores will perform the scan for free. Hope this helped and best wishes.
