    I really appreciate your communication, sorry for my late response. I have the car booked in for Wednesday and will run this past the mechanic.



    The engine computer light is permanently on, the computer confirms no issues, any thoughts?



    Thank you again.

Try starting the car and while the car is running disconnect the posative ( red ) cable. If the car stops then you need to replace the alternator. This will cause the battery light to come on. If the car still runs then take the car to advaced auto or some car parts store of that sort and they will check your battery ang charging system for free and tell you what parts you exactly need. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer, thanks.

I have a 1999 TERRANO QD32ETI engine and the problem which the local agents and private mechanics cannot solve is that when it's on the highways the engine performs well; that is it accelerates perfectly. However, when the vehicle comes to a dead stop, and you go for a quick take off the engine cuts out; it restarts quickly; now,when you make a slow acceleration after stopping the engine does not stall, but this can be a dangerous situation when crossing traffic on the highway or moving off from the traffic lights. We checked the computer, fuel pump and the injectors; our opinions differ and somehow
we feel the problem may be the fuel pump. We would appreciate your comments. Our many thanks for your kind assistance. Thanks Tony.

Get your alternator checked. You could also have a grounded wire or an interior light is staying on. Check the lights in your sunvisor mirrors, sometimes they fall just a little and allows the light to come on.

Vitara 1.6 cuts out


Are you quite sure it is not overheating? Your mention of heavy traffic, ie. stop and go, would tell me that your radiator fans are not working. I had a car with bum electric radiator fans. It worked fine if it was moving a lot. But in slow traffic, it would get warm enough to have a vapor lock or something without setting the engine-hot light.
