You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed.
Most auto parts stores will scan for free in hopes of selling you parts you may or may not need. The codes are a guide to what you should test not replace.
The flashing O/D light could mean the computer has a problem with the transmission or the engine is not able to use overdrive.

SOURCE: suzuki grand vitara 2000 model the engine light blinks

Take your rig.. drive it to a gas station.. fill the tank up with gas.. also fill 2 jugs of gasoline at the same time... put the jugs in the back of it.. now drive as far as you can until the rig runs out of gas.. then, take the two jugs of gas.. pour it all over the rig, inside and out.. now light it a-blaze, then walk to your nearest car dealer and buy a new car..

Check your e brake lever switch, if the car thinks the e-brake is on the day time running lights will stay off.

Carbon build up on pistons raises engine compression.This is normal.Go up one grade on gas and/or put some fuel additive.If this doesnt solve it,have timing belt/chain inspected may need replaced

SOURCE: Is valve adjustment a part of normal maitenance on Suzuki Esteem

When you hear some tapping, that's why you need -valve adjustments. At 137,000miles you probably need more than that to continue your trouble-free drives.

Reverse lights


nice double post, back up one and read.
but now adds MANUAL.
so the reverse switch is bad, remove it ,2wire switch
and put in new.

its just a simple Thomas Edison switch, (no electronics) nothing magic. the FSM< covers this, (factory service manual) as does
alldata.com
if an OHM meter (resistance low range) shows infinity in reverse its bad, if reads 0 ohms its good, so if good, the wires to it were bad.
or both lamp out, (can happen, ignored)

Overcharge light came on and car overheated, check engine light came on and o/d light flashed, how do i troubleshoot?


I would start with having the computer checked for trouble codes and find out why it overheated. The codes may direct you as to what to test.
Most auto parts stores can scan the computer for free in hopes of selling you some parts.

Suzuki esteem 2000 1.8l wagon. Check engine light on. Trouble accelarating in rainy weather. Any ideas? also how could i check the trouble code myself without obd device? Cheers!


Sounds like the moisture or the wetness from the rain is getting within the firing area. Try using Di-electric grease on the plug boots and coil pack. This prevents wetness from entering the firing area and causing diffused spark. If you have an Advance auto or Auto zone near you, they will usually check the code for you for free.

2000 Suzuki Esteem (1.8) Fuel System


No SYMPTOMS stated, (sadly)
the J18 engines, twin cam, chain drive cam, nice motor.
an under stroked, J20. it is.. and share most parts.

alldata.com covers it.... and all cars... mostly.
for sure esteems (used books real off Ebay, if lucky, do a watch on ebay)?
and for sure Suzuki, the FSM is $4 to read. and posted 100 time here. (more ) this the real deal, (McCoy)
https://suzukipitstopplus.com/Products/1182-2000-esteem-service-manual.aspx

the filter, and pump , no need to replace pump unless
it has 12vdc to IT CRANKING< and filter is new. AND, pressure is out of spec. (see spec, below)
a gauge is $20 and way more easy to use than a bath in gasoline
for sure.and a $10 voltmeter from walfart.

now the Esteem secret (just in CASE)
"Remove rear seat cushion, rear right seat back, right side sill scuff, right front partition trim and right rear door opening trim."
bingo, a secret access port.

now the spec.
31-37 ?idle PSI
this is the fuel pressure at the rail, at idle.
cranking is 6 PSI more
driving up hill, wide open throttle, pressure rises to 3- 6psi more that idle. (near)
if pressure is low, check for 12vdc to pump, first.
then make sure the FPR works.
they can stick open closed or jam. and it must work right. or fueling will be ALL wrong. (cars this old FPR love to fail)
this engine ECU has program revision (flash) that causes
pump to not run key on, (read TSBs on same at suzuki...)

so, crank it and check pressure cranking if not starting?
or if it does start (you never said) then check at idle
and WOT. the PSI ( then gun throttle see pressure jump way higher) if all this pans out, forget pump, and FPR.

did you scan the PCM yet, that be like first..
all scan tools (real) work on 2000 cars.... all do.
