1 Answer

I have a 2007 suzuki forenza it was having battery problems so i replaced the battery and the alternator but my car still won't start.

I was having battery problems the battery would die out so i purchased a new battery and a new alternator. When i was getting installed the mechanic left the key in the igniton, he said that it might of triggered the security system because i won't start now. Ive had other mechanics and the can't find whats wrong with it. One of the connected it to this machine and it said it was a turbo something problem. Im running out of options please help. Ive been reading about recalls on these cars, there was a recall for this exact car that the seatlet wasn't working and mines isn't working as well. what can i do about it? the car dealership sold it to me like this.

It is standard practice with lots of modern cars to leave the ignition key in and turned to the on position when connecting a battery as this helps prevent alarms sounding, immobilisers engaging and all sorts of inconvenient stuff happening. It is even better to use a memory saver while changing a battery so not even the radio code and stations are lost.

You didn't say how long you have owned the car. If it was a recent purchase it should have been returned to the dealer as soon as you realised the battery was faulty. There is such a thing as warranty and consumer rights. The dealer certainly should not have sold the car with a defective seatbelt.

It certainly seems like the security system is activated though the presence of the key in the ignition should deactivate it if it is working ok so maybe it is broken or maybe it has forgotten the correct code and needs reprogramming.

It is possibly a coincidence and there is a fault, perhaps caused by the first mechanic. Before towing the car to the Suzuki dealer or calling for an autolocksmith it would be a good idea to physically check voltages, wiring, the presence of fuel and injection pulses, spark and suchlike. If all seems well under the bonnet the chances of an immobiliser malfunction are quite high. Reading the vehicle handbook is always a good place to begin.

This process takes (2) people to do easily. Once the battery is charged again from a charger or jump start, with the car off, open the hood with all the doors closed and disconnect the positive (RED) side of the battery using a wrench (many are 10mm). If you then touch the battery terminal back to the positive post of the battery you will likely see a small spark. That means something in the car is killing your battery. If not (no small spark) then you have an alternator problem. By taking needle nose pliers and removing and replacing each fuse in the fuse block individually and doing the aforementioned spark test, pulling ONE of those fuses will likely show NO spark when you touch the battery terminal to the battery. Once you have found that, you have found the circuit which is draining your battery. Look in the owners manual to find what that fuse is for. That will GREATLY narrow down your search to whatever is causing your problem.

SOURCE: 2004 suzuki verona check engine light on. Mechanic

your engine is fine. find a new mechanic.

if the exhaust clogs it just dies. your cat ( converter) probably clogged due to a very rich condition, which was detected by the computer, hence the light. my bet is a clogged fuel injector or a sensor (either oxygen or air flow) failed. this made it run rich and the cat probably melted.

get a new cat installed, have them run the codes.

Engine light on It is a suzuki forenza 2007, and never replaced battery (maybe this is the problem)


If your vehicle is starting fine it shouldn't be your battery. The check engine light on all, or atleast most vehicles is because of an emissions problem.

Myself, I would do the following 3 things first;
1. Make sure you have a clean air filter.

2. Have the MAF, ( mass air flow ), sensor checked.

3. Have the oxygen sensors checked.

All 3 of these things can prevent the vehicle's computer from determining the proper fuel/air mix ratio.

I hope this helps you.
