Question about 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara
Could this be from gas attendant not closing cap fast enough or correctly
You know I would doubt that this is caused by a speed wristed attendant, especially if you have removed and replaced the gas cap at the correct speed and the light stays on. ..................... ha ha.
Seems to be a recurring problem and having just spent a poop load of money with 2 dealers on that SES light issue I will tell you that the 2001 2.7 V6 engines have 4 O2 sensors and 3 catalytic converters. According to both dealers as those aforementioned parts approach the 100,000 mile marker they tend to send error codes. You get the errors cleared and 50 miles later there is the SES light again. The O2 sensors seemd to be very difficult to remove, both shops indicated you are better off to buy new catalytic converters, install new O2 sensors in them and then bolt in the whole mess as a unit. This of course assumes your bad readings are O2 sensor related. I would take it to a dealer as oppsed to autozone or advance as their generic little readers pale in comparison to the code readers at the dealership. price reflects that though.

Depending on the code it could be the fuel cap, if there are no driveability symptoms you may just want to drive it for a few days to see if it resets. or you could take it to vip, autozone or most of your local parts stores and have them pull codes to see if it is an evaporative system code. if its not an evap code then its not from the fuel cap.
