Looking back from the front of the car, if you look on top of the right side of the drive housing behind the engine, you'll find two wires running to the top of the switch. It's just inside the tunnel running under the car, accessed from leaning over the wing when the bonnet's up.

Drivers side power window went down and wouldn't roll back up


I had this happen in an old Acura coupe of mine. Motor was slowly going out in the regulator. Pretty cheap fix if you know your way around cars.

I have a Suzuki Vitara 2003 and the lights on the back dont work only the bumper and the strip light at the top work for breaks is this correct as nothing from both sides show up?


Either bad circuit film connection (common) or other wire connection. Could be a ground wire to the tail light assembly or wiring to relays.

2001 Suzuki vitara clutch pedal went to the floor and wont come back up. It's like its stuck in perpetual neutral. Slave gear? Where is it.


Check the fluid level on the clutch master in the engine compartment. The clutch slave is located down on the bottom by your transmission.

Suzuki Gr.Vitara.Front wheels dont engage when reversing in 4WD


The short answer is "no", but working out why could be a little bit difficult. Any further diagnosis should be performed on a hoist or with all 4 wheels off the ground and the transfer box in 4H. Be aware that any of the following checks where front and rear wheels may turn at different speeds will generate an ABS error code and a light on the dash that may need a Dealer to turn off - if you have ABS. You'll also need a couple of hydraulic brake line locking clamps. The first check would be to make sure the front prop shaft turns in reverse as it does in forwards 4WD. Why it wouldn't, I couldn't tell you!
Stop the engine, and while someone is holding their foot on the brake, clamp off both front hydraulic lines to each of the front calipers. Release the hand brake (park brake) and release the foot from the brake pedal (keep foot off brakes from now on) and restart the engine (in nuetral or N), and whilst the engine is idling, select 1st and slowly let the clutch out (if it's a manual), or select D (if it's an auto). If the line locks are holding the pressure in the front brakes, then the manual should stall, and the auto's back wheels shouldn't be turning (but the engine would feel like it's in gear). That would confirm that the front wheels are driving when in forwards 4WD.
Then we do the same test but going backwards, so select reverse and let the clutch out (or R if auto), and if what you say is true, then the back wheels should be spinning away at idle. If the engine stalled, or the back wheels aren't turning, then everything is OK.
Remember to remove the line locking clamps after this test.
I would think that you may have only seen the wheel that wasn't turning when going backwards. These cars have open diffs - so the wheel with the most resistance to rotating won't turn, but the one on the other side will. This is the same for both the front axle and rear axle for most Grand Vitaras. Very few have a factory rear LSD, and I don't think any got a front LSD.
I've just had inspiration - if the front wheels don't drive ONLY in reverse 4WD, the only thing wrong would have to be the front diff engaging mechanism or its related wiring/switching controls. If the relays that control the pump that supplies air pressure to the diff engaging diaphragm in the front diff housing don't get the "I'm in 4WD" signal from the transfer box, the pressure is relieved to the diff and you're back into 2WD. My next check would be to see if your reverse lights are working when in reverse. See if your reverse lights come on when in 4WD or 2WD. If they aren't working, or coming on at the wrong time, then SOMEHOW, the wiring/plugs on the gearbox/transfer case may have been mixed up (during a clutch replacement?) or the wiring somewhere else is wrong. I would probably do the checking of reverse lights before the first test above. Good luck. Let me know how you go.

Trailer harness


You buy a plug-in trailer wiring harness for this vehicle. I bought mine at NAPA. The vehicle harness plug is in the wiring stuffed behind that LR access panel wherin the car jack sits. You may have to actually remove the LR tail light assembly to discover the plug, but it's there. The wiring harness is a bit pricey, more than the usual DIY harness, but it makes for a very clean, flawless, and effortless connection.

Suzuki plug location!


Remove the securing bolt for the spark generator--each plug has one--I think it is 10mm-then withdraw the unit and the spark plug is way down there--you may have to remove the cross brace to access No 3 I think it is.

Can't find the fuse box under the driver's side dash on my 2000 suzuki grand vitara. my radio/clock not working and dome light does not come on when the driver's side door is opened.


Its below the Dashboard, on the left side of your knee. You have to use a torch & locate it from under the Dashboard, Its roughly near to the Clutch Pedal.
Here, it looks like this: (The Black one is the Fuse box) ba18901.jpg

1999 2.0L TD Suzuki vitara the clutch pedal was low and grumpy when pressed and hard to select 1st or reverse. plenty of movement in clutch slave arm and no fluid leaks to be seen.so i removed the gearbox...


Pilot bearing (pressed into flywheel) or release bearing (presses against clutch pressure plate)?
Regardless, the repair is the same. Replace clutch disc, pressure plate, release bearing & pilot bearing. Most flywheels are available or as part of a complete kit, minimum is to inspect & resurface flywheel when replacing clutch assymbly.
