Question about 1995 Suzuki Sidekick

Radio not working after changing fuse

My dashboard lights (e.g. outside temperature, speed) and radio stopped working all of a sudden on my Suzuki Ignis. I found that a fuse was dead, so replaced it. The dashboard indicators are working again, but not the radio. It says 'code' instead of displaying the radio station. Anyone able to help please ?

Yes as Steve says, but check your handbooks & manuals folder first to see if the dealer left the code stuck inside the radio hand book firstly, if not then contact the dealer as Steve said, hope this helps

SOURCE: suzuki ignis 2002 oxgen sensor functions

It gets pretty hot in there, and although hardly any manufacturers specify replacement intervals for oxygen sensors, they play a critical role in providing the ECM with acurate data for best running performance/economy. Change it, as the savings in NOT changing it will be soon eroded by increased fuel usage.

SOURCE: Hi I have a suzuki ignis.My display has gone blank

The wiring may have gone bad in your car. Usually blown fuse and loss of power are the result of this. You may need to inspect the wiring loom underneath the dashboard where most of the wiring for the mentioned devices are located.

Hello bishoppar.

As with most electrical repairs this is almost impossible to tell you costs involved.
It will depend on where and how the short took place and how far the damage has extended.
If it is one wire shorted to ground it may not be as bad. But if one wire shorts into another it can damage several circuits.
In one case I have seen where a starter circuit shorted, burned into several others. This started a small fire in the engine compartment. The insurance wrote off the vehicle due to repair costs.
Most certainly this will not be the case in your situation, just an example of the variation.

You will need to trace the short and have it repaired.
A good tech should be looked for in the repair as it will save you in the long run.

If you would like further advise on this, please ask me in a comment here.
Thank you for using FixYa.

My windows control will not go up or down to control any of my windows.


fuse bad.
you mean the fan is dead, no fan, no heat , no A/C.
its dead fan and most die only low speeds and not high.
is your fan dead on HIGH> (big hint here)
the window s on many suzuki have a circuit breaker hidden in dash.
the fan if failed only on low speed,s is a bad fan resistor block hidden
in the fan case. when they fail , hitting the dash causes the broke
wire wound resistors to touch for second and can weld bad for a while but will fail soon.

When i am driving my suzuki ignis (1.3,manual,2001)in a traffic(more than 45 mins)engine starts to miss(check light indicates) and it stops.cant start it for about 10-15 mins


I have a 2001 Suzuki Ignis and I have a similar problem. When I start the engine 5 beeps are heard and the hazard lights turn off and on with each beep. Also after I have been driving for about 45 mins 3 beeps are heard and the hazard lights turn off and on again. However my engine does not stop running. I have asked people about it and they think that it has something to do with a lose wire in the security system? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
