So called mechanic should look for no charge find another one,hes taking the pea ,sounds like he doesnt know whats hes doing anyway.none of the faults are related ,heater core needs flushing with a bit of caustic soda ,ignition lock switch needs renewing ,bulbs in interior need changing to iluminate the gearchange ,and a new window winder unit.

Where's the relay for the blower located in a 2001 suzuki xl-7 grand vitara


the car has 26 relays!@
and 1 to or 3 fans
are you saying the heater/ A.C blower is dead./ the HVAC?
or engine fan (its mech for rad)
or condenser fan, no symptoms posted, just relay hunts.


my guess is you dont know how the blower in the heater works.
so will cover that.
The HVAC.
First test is blower in high, failing is bad fuse.?
if lower speeds fail, (a top clue) then the blower resistor is bad.
but only on the manual hvac option!

lets backup,I have full parts list on your car, here, USA. spec
the car came new with 2 class type of HVAC
manual AC with blower resistor
or
full auto system that as a new brain box, and a transistor box
that controls blower, at all times, its just a transistor. (no brains)
some cars with the full auto HVAC feature
have a self test mode.
and self calibration feature (learn) all this is in the BIG BOOK.
apples and oranges, different to the extreme.
so instead of me guessing car you bought. ill tell you to RTM

just 4 bucks, and only covers that exact year, and car only.
not a clone book as the folks post here , RAG books.
the real deal here from suzuki actual....

the BIG BOOK. see chapter HVAC and read.

yes there is a fusebox under the dashboard, check if the aircon/blower fuse/relay is broken, if it is then get a replacement.

Heater/ blower on 1999 mitsubishi galant 2.0gls


Most likely the resistors are stuffed.
Top speed the electricity goes straight to the fan motor.
The other settings go via a resistor to slow the speed, hence the 3 speeds. So the resistor feed is main suspect

Vitara 1.6 cuts out


Are you quite sure it is not overheating? Your mention of heavy traffic, ie. stop and go, would tell me that your radiator fans are not working. I had a car with bum electric radiator fans. It worked fine if it was moving a lot. But in slow traffic, it would get warm enough to have a vapor lock or something without setting the engine-hot light.
