Question about 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara

Open Question

Parking brake light on dash comes on when I push on the gas

I have a 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara. Whenever I am stopped at a light, turn a corner, or just want to increase the speed, the parking/emergency brake light on the dash comes on. If I let up on the gas for a second or so, the light goes off and will stay off until I stop again, and have to push on the gas to go. I have set the parking brake and released it several times to no affect. I don't know if I am damaging the parking brake, putting a drag on the engine or what. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    I have the same issue on my 2007. Mechanic says its common but no suggestion on how to fix it unless they spend a couple of hours looking at it at my cost. Anyone have a suggestion on correcting this without costing me hours to research it? I don't mind paying to get it fixed but not the researching part. Thanks

SOURCE: parking brake release

When you try to release it, you'll need to pull the pedal up at the same time to get it back in place.

SOURCE: 4WD not working properly

this is most commonly caused by the motor on the transfer case that engages the 4X4 either sticking or defective, sticking can be caused by dirty fluid, have u ever serviced the fluid in the transfer case, it should be done around 30,000 miles if u use the 4X4 allot.

SOURCE: 2002 suzuki grand vitara brake warning goes on and off

Do you have a brake fluid accumulator(ABS)? If yes, the pistons/pulsing assembly are worn, and may need to be replaced.

If not, you may have a vacuum leak in the power booster (located on the firewall). Check all hose and clamps for a tight fit/cracks,etc. Vacuum leaks cause intermittent brake failure lights.

You may want to park the vehicle on a clean surface, pump the brakes a few times, and check for brake fluid leaks. If there is a leaking wheel cylinder (back brakes) , caliper (front brakes), or brake line, you will be able to see it.

Leaks cause pressure loss, and, thus, the brake warning light will illuminate.

SOURCE: engine warning light stays on my suzuki grand

It means there is a fault stored in the computer memory that needs to be identified and fixed.
Have the code read or take it to advance auto and they will lend you the reader so you can plug into the diagnostic port under the dash and read the code.
The code reader can then be used to reset the check engine light and turn it off.

I have a 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara almost ran out of gas.I put gas in and now when I push the gas pedal the car barely moves I barely got home thepedal


running the pump dry is bad. on all EFI cars
the pump is fuel cooled and fuel lubricated
if you run any pump dry, you risk pump damage
but lets hope it not damaged, hope is good.
key on 10 times, hear it run?(the pump) let it run 10 times not started
and pray it works, and this trick primes it and gets all air out of the line
the 3 second run time is called just that auto prime.
then run it.
never run EFI cars dry, its a rule.
the dash chime told you it was low, ignore that at your risk.

What fuse needs replaced for the break lights on a suzuki grand vitara 2006?


Obviously, in different markets, there will be different wiring set-ups. In Australia, both the brake lights and horn work when the ignition is off and they share a fuse. If your horn doesn't work, maybe your brake lights don't either.

Can i disable the headlights on in the daytime on my 2000 suzuki gran vitara, i am going through headlight bulbs very often and they are 20 dollars a pop.


They only activate when the car is in gear and the parking brake is disengaged. find the grounding wire off the parking brake lever and break the ground when brake is disengaged, you may also lose you parking brake warning light. Not sure if it's on a seperate circuit or not.

turn the selection knob to auto and leave it there. the lights will automatically come on whenever the sensor on the dash trips. it takes a minute in a tunnel but you will never have to worry if your lights are on.
