Question about 1994 Suzuki Samurai
It has been running fine for about 3 months then all of a sudden I went to drive to town and turned the headlights and radio on and it killed the engine. So I turned the lights off and the radio and then turned it on and it runs fine. So what is making it do this? I am sure that it is some kind of electrical problem but how do I fix it?
Get a volt meter and check the voltage on the battery should be around 12 to 12.5 volts.start the Samurai with it running, should be between 13.6 and 14 volts. Then while you are watching the volt meter have someone start turning on lights and accessories. If the voltage begins to drop down when it hits between 9.6 and 10.2. It will shut down the cpu and the engine will die. If this is what is happening the alternator is not keeping up, and needs the belt tightened or alternator replaced. I don't think it is the battery because you can restart the vehicle after turning off all the accessories. Mike
