Re: I can't find diagnostic socket on my 1999 3.0D
The data link connector is a 16 pin plug connector and it should be under the dash/bulkhead , under the steering wheel. You may have to remove the trim panel to find it. Normally DTC connectors are in easy reach, so plug in testers can be read whilst sitting in the drivers seat.
Hope this helps

The check engine light could indicate many different faults! The only way to be sure is to get the fault codes read! This will indicate where the fault is! If you do not have a code reader then take it to a garage to have this done!
That's your engine warning light. This indicates that one of the engine's systems is at fault. This light could mean anything from a minor to serious fault, and so you should immediately stop the vehicle and examine all liquids, and connections to the engine. If nothing seems a miss, then drive the vehicle to a garage and have them run a diagnostic computer on the systems to display which fault you are dealing with.
When I get this code on my Ford Escape it is because who ever filled the gas tank last didn't lock the cap down properly. Have the gas cap tested and replace if it fails. This is a minor vacuum leak but because it is minor it is difficult to find as well. Check all your vacuum lines for damage or leaks.
Your vehicles computer is detecting a reading from the sensors that is out side of normal operating range. It could be a minor issue, or it could be a big deal. Take your vehile to Autozone and they will connect a code reader to your system and give you a free diagnostic read out that will give you an idea of whats wrong. If your a home mechanic, they will make suggestions on the repair parts needed. If your not a back yard mechanic, you can skip Autozone and head to the Garage.
You need to check for power in the socket,if no power go back the harness a ways and recheck.If you have power prior to the socket then you may need a new socket.Also check and see if the socket is grounded.
Hello! I've been away myself for the Festivities and havn't logged into my FixYa desk. The management light shows many faults some of which are minor i.e. service interval others could be serious but from the small description you have left it appears that if the vehicle is performing well and no serious problems also all fluid levels are correct then you should be fine for local driving.
You need a Technician to plug in a OBDII diagnostic reader to look at the fault messages logged in the (Brain/Computer) of your Vehicle. (This doesn't have to be Suzuki) It should be a qualified Technician.
Have a Happy New Year!
abs sensor wires are very funny when it comes to just rejoining them as the resistance in the wire is less so abs light may stay on, most earlier fords abs lights will go off after prob is fixed and car is driven, best to go to local garage and get diagnostic done
