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.

How do you change the front parking light bulb?


You can get to it from under the wheel arch, just loosen the plastic wheel arch liner and it will provide direct access to the rear of the lamp where the parking light bulb is located. That's on a long wheelbase grand vitara. I'm not sure if the short wheelbase one or the xl7 are the same as the light configuration is different.

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.

I have a 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara 4wd. My gear shift is stuck in park, the button on the side wll not push all the way in. What could be the problem?


One actuator solenoid and module assembly, located on the lower portion of the steering column, locks the shifter in Park whenever it receives a signal that the ignition switch is in the ON position. When the module receives a signal from the Brake On-Off (BOO) switch that indicates the brake pedal is depressed, it unlocks the shifter so that it can be shifted out of Park."

It says the most common failures in the system are the fuse and the BOO switch, and if they are fine, special tools are needed to diagnose.

To disable the system: Apply the parking brake, turn the ignition key to LOCK, then remove the key. Insert the key and turn it to OFF. Press the brake pedal. Shift to neutral, start the vehicle and select the desired gear. Check this and additionally, I suggest check if your vehicle has some NSS (Neutral Safety Switch) that would be adjust.

Hope this helps; just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Have a nice day and thanks for using FixYa.

Jose.

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.

Cant shift out of park


There is usually a button behind the brake pedal which does two things.

A. it actuates your brake light

B. It also unlocks the the gear selector

Sometimes they simply need an adjustment usually a 13mm lock nut and advance the switch in small incriments.
