Question about 1998 Suzuki Swift

1 Answer

Cold morn - not starting. Car was moved a few feet night before.

This is the second time its happened to my Suzuki Ignis. After starting the engine the night before and moving the car a few feet, on start up the following morning (in the cold) it struggles to start.
Why would this be so?
Would turning the ignition on, moving a few feet then switching off the night before affect the start-up the following morning?

OK, so starting the engine uses a lot of battery power, and the engine needs to be left running a while to recharge the battery.
When it is cold batterys don't hold as much charge (not quite the correct technical term, but I don't want to go into battery mechanics and chemistry here). You either need to pop it on a trickle charger or let it run for at least 15 minutes.

Suzuki ignis 2002 power steering reservoir


Hello Mina Harker,

Saw your comment go in... Problem is...
"IGNIS" (I'm not getting as a USA model (little data here))...
but what I am looking at seems to be RIGHT-HAND DRIVES...

Which would EXPLAIN why I was seeing the PS tank behind the
RHD (drivers side headlight...

I responded there (Jurily Hawrylak's answer) as well... (if equipped) the power steering PUMP... should be quite obvious near the TOP of your serpentine belt (at least on the diagrams I am pulling up).

- Find the blue filler cap ... near the BRIGHT YELLOW dip stick handle...

At that same level... move your hand in a small circle... FEELING for a BLACK PLASTIC cap.... that says POWER STEERING fluid

Go to Bing homepage

But just for A thought... there is such a thing as an ELECTRIC POWER STEERING on a IGNIS: (worth saying)

2005 suzuki ignis 1.3 would not start after it gets hot


hot soak failure.
all fails of this type are caused by only 3 things (4?)
1: lost electrical power to the EFI system, (kills spark/fueling)
2: lost spark.
3: lost fuel or too much called flooding

even a bad engine. some engines lose compression hot.
the tests have not changed since 1920 , tin lizzy days.
same deal.
3 tests.
ill not rattle through them here, its in everybook published on topic
and on every car repair forum , in the world.

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!
