Question about 1991 Suzuki Swift

1 Answer

1997 Suzuki Swift stuck in 4WD mode

Today when stuck in some sand I put the car into 4WD and drove for about 1/10 of a mile until I turned onto a paved road.  When turning the wheels bound up, and reminded me to put it back into 2L, and I had to wait for a safe place to pull over as it was a busy road.  But, before I could do so I started to hear a loud sound like something was scraping, and when I disengaged the clutch to stop the car it came to almost a complete stop, almost like hitting the clutch was like hitting the breaks.  Something is definitely dragging the car, it almost feels like the E brake was left on but that's not it.  The car is still drive-able, but obviously something is wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

'97 volvo 960, Orange W-mode arrow blinking, then lost power. What is wrong?

The usual cause of this is a bad PNP switch or gear position sensor.
The "W" is flashing because the transmission control module is stuck in the Winter mode. If you are not familiar with sensor, I suggest you go and have the transmission codes read and reset to begin with and then post back the results.

Crankshaft sensor - 97 Suzuki Swift. Need location.

can you afford a 10 buck walfart meter? DMM volt meter
the battery terms clean
fuses checked
starter dead, no jumper cables for a old car, its like first buy tool if ever there ways. huh>
so you cant jumper cable start car.
so we measure battery voltage cranking
11v good, hear clank, bad starter,
12.6v no clank is dead starter or dead keyline
hot wire key line, it cranks means key line DEAD.
try to crank in neutral? yet< A/t trans, this uses new switch contacts, wow it starts.?
lower than 10 v cranking is weak battery, no jumper cables, oops;.
or shorted starter, or seized engine, can you turn engine by hand.

my guess, is all this is too hard.
it takes tools to fix cars, some or are dirt cheap today.
unlike say in 1970 .... you in the good times.

How do I release the tranfer box stick to two wheel drive in my suzuki sierra 4x4 It is stuck in 4 wheel drive

5 generations. many are part time 4wd, ever read who to use that?

if in part time 4wd, you need to be off dry pavement, do drive
gently to soft dirt ,grass /sand or gravel and shift out out of part time.

is it just he light stuck on, or is it really in 4wd, driving on ice?

New Suzuki's have this, ( i bet you dont)

Why would my 1998 Suzuki Swift stop & not start again after replacing thermostat?

double posted ANON.
welll it was answered all ready.

what does turn over mean.
wont crank
or cranks perfectly but will not start
we can guess that, ever. must be said.
and check fuses?
check for spark yet?
did it over heat engine, , NO ? if NO, then the thermostat is not it.
did you knock off wires or connectors doing this service?
did you burp all air from the cooling loop, or just slam it and and hope it works.? this the first drain an fill ever? of an engine for you ?

Hey iam looking for tail lights for suzuki swift 1995 model can you help me please.

Get to know the sister cars. The Suzuki Swift is almost completely identical to the Geo Metro and the Pontiac Firefly: the only differences were that the Metro and the Firefly were available in sedan form and the Swift wasn't. Also, no changes were made to any of these cars between 1995 and 1997. If you look for parts for any of these cars they will work.

Vehicles mentioned:
1995, 1996, 1997 Suzuki Swift
1995, 1996, 1997 Geo Metro 2/3dr
1995, 1996, 1997 Pontiac Firefly 2/3dr

In addition the only things that changed after 1997 were the bumpers and front turn signals (and that the Metro became a Chevy) so taillights for later Swifts/Metros/Fireflies should work as well.
