There should be a power/normal switch on the console just to the right of the automatic transmission gear selector. (Labeled A/T on my '96, but "power" in my '92.) This switch changes the shift profile of the 4 speed automatic transmission.

SOURCE: Power Steering Fluid

most vehicles have a separate bottle to fill the fluid, look for a pump run from the v belt with a filling cap on it, it may even say steering fluid

SOURCE: Steering warning light on 2005 suzuki reno

Speed Sensitive Power Steering
(SSPS) Warning Light
If your vehicle has Speed Sensitive Power
Steering (SSPS), this warning light will
come on briefly when you turn the ignition
to ON as a check to show you the bulb is
working.
Then it should go out after a few seconds.
If the warning light does not come on, have
it fixed so it will be able to warn you if there
is a problem.
If the warning light stays on, or comes on
while you are driving, the SSPS system
may not be working. If this happens, see
your SUZUKI dealer for service.

Speed Sensitive Power Steering

(SSPS) Warning Light


Your vehicle is equipped with Speed Sensitive Power Steering (SSPS).

This is a computer-controlled power steering assist system.

The warning light you are describing will come on briefly when you turn the ignition to ON as a check to show you the bulb is working.

Then it should go out after a few seconds. If the warning light does not come on, have it fixed so it will be able to warn you if there is a problem.

If the warning light stays on, or comes on while you are driving, the SSPS system may not be working.
Your computer will need to be scanned to determine what the problem is with your SSPS system.

Hi guys I have a 2007 Suzuki swift sport and today I noticed a loud humming buzz when I'm idling, it's rather concerning... Would u guys have any idea what it is?


Power steering or toque converter. Check the powers steering fluid and the transmission fluid. Power steering/ Fluid usually helps, Check for leaks and fix. Toque converter, Check the fluid, look at the fluid (how dark it is) smell the fluid is it burnt? If it is low add fluid, but this won't help the noise coming from the toque converter. Eventually it will give out and the vehicle won't move. The sooner you fix this problem, the less it will cost you.

1993 Sidekick: reset check engine light...


you know about the "Hidden switch" don't you, its a switch in the earlier model suzukis. It's located between the steering column and the speaker on the left end of the dash, just reach under the dash and feel for it, or you can take the speaker out and it's on the right side of the speaker hole.

No head lights! HELP PLEASE!!


Probably the combination switch, located in steering column, controls all lights. On ours, we lost all lights EXCEPT headlights, fuses and bulbs were all good. Replaced the switch yesterday (well, our Sidekick had two switches) and now all lights work fine. You need to pull the steering wheel to get at the switches. We got parts at a junkyard, but AutoZone also sold them at less than dealer prices.
