Question about 2001 Suzuki Esteem

1 Answer

Check engine light comes on

I have a 2001 Suzuki Esteem 4dr Sedan. The check engine light just came on & the steering wheel seems to have lost a little bit of power steering. Also, for awhile now the cruise control seems to kick in at random causing acceleration without me doing anything. I'm still able to put on the brakes or press the gas to get it to stop it.

The reason for engine light illumination is to Warn the driver of Faults or upcoming service.
I would be getting the vehicle smartish to a reputable Technician who has OBD analyzing equipment for a check on the faults or service requirement.
There may just be a service due so he can do this or you can do it yourself if competent, he will be able to clear the service/engine light for a fee usually.
Hope this FixYas problem!

Have a 02 Suzuki esteem and the headlights go off when the steering wheel is all hard right or left and battery light comes on dashboard. any ideas?

are you driving or parked idling
did engine stall? zero RPM = stalled, did it?
wow that sounds like fun,. not.
loss of headlights (HL) is clear, but simple!
as they work key off, so is a hard electrical failure.
with a voltmeter is 5min work
but here at (sic) we must guess.
my wild guess is,
1: battery terminals rusty, clean them, every year.
2: battery went dead. 12.6vdc rested is good, or more.
3: fuse for HL are loose or the main fuses underhood loose or bad.

Whining sound from front passenger side.

Check the condition of front disc brake pads, if they are in need of replacement a preset little metal arm starts rubbing the discs and will make a whining noise. It doesn't do any damage but it's irritating to listen to.
