This is a complex car, and engines.
Just 1 code? and no pendings?
A DIESEL engine , and in USA , are ya> or in Canada?

the shop manual for all complex cars, is a must have.

P2 codes are factory codes, unique to only Suzuki ,
so use their books.
alldata dot com has it.

"Particulate Trap Efficiency Below Threshold Malfunction "
but cleaning it , is not the only way to fix it.
the manual covers this, and how the test works and what can make it fail, simple swaps or cleans dont always work.
RTM please.

You need a spring compressing tool tool to unload the spring from the strut. Very dangerous, would suggest a shop to do this.

SOURCE: cabin filter element location

Filter is located behind the glove box. All you need is a screwdriver to replace.

1. Open the glove box and empty to take the weight off the box.

2. On the right side there is a plastic hinge like device held on by one Phillips head screw. If you have trouble removing with a Phillips screwdriver you can remove with a narrow flat head screwdriver. Remove the screw and slide hinge off the mount.

3. To drop the glove box press the sides slightly inwards while 'forcing' it open beyond it's normal stopping point. Careful as when it releases it will fall wide open and may even fall from its hinged area. Set it aside.

4. Behind the glove box there is probably some fiberous material inserted to prevent noise like squeaking when it rubs. It is sticky on one side to hold it in place. Just remove and place out of the way.

5. Behind the fiberous material there'll be a cover which kinda looks like a grille. Mine was white and it is in the center of the opening. Remove it by releasing the clips at the left or right. It comes right out.

6. When the cover comes off slide the filter out and replace it. The filter lays flat and just slides in and out easily. However, if it has been some time since you replaced be prepared for a lot of debris on top of the filter such as leaves, grass or other general type of debris that has been sucked into the filter. It also may be the source of any bad odors that you smell through the air conditioning system.

7. Reverse the process. Replace the cover and push the glove box lid back into place. When you replace the glove box be careful to make sure the hinge you initiallly removed the screw from is not left behind the glove box or you will have to remove again to get it out. Replace the screw and do not over tighten as it screws into plastic and then your done.

SOURCE: suzuki grand vitara fault code

I guess you have an HDI engine (possibly RHZ) as this fault is very common on that model. Quite possibly it will just disappear. It is not likely to be the turbo. Swap the electrovalve (pneumatic solenoid) which controls the turbo with one of the others (there are three beside each other on the inside of the wing, and see what happens. If the fault moves elsewhere that confirms electrovalve fault - so replace valve it.
If not check the vacuum hoses and test things such as the EGR for vacuum leaks. Another possibility is a faulty (or even just dirty) MAF. This is very easy to remove- it is on air intake - so remove and clean with wWD40 or similar.

Hi I have my 2006 Suzuki grand vitara but the ESP light and slippery light is on please let me know why and whats the problem and what i need for part thanks

Can't tell you the problem

As with ALL vehicle problems, you have to check
for fault codes,diagnose those codes,go to trouble
charts,then component test,to see if you even have
a failed part

I thought that was well known fact for the last 30 years,
when it comes to cars,nothing new there,can't guess at
the unknown

Always need the car to test

2006 suzuki grand vitara esp light on

When the Electronic stability program indicator stays on it is alerting you to the fact that the systems control module has detected a fault and shut the ESP off. You must now have it diagnosed to find out what caused this fault.

I have a 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara. ESP light in on and other lights are flashing. Is it oK to drive with this on?

Yes it is ok to drive but you have no stability control system at this time. This can cause a roll over if you are placed in a sticky situation.

1 Answer


The information below was complied by me, it explains what causes the check engine light to come on and the process of finding the cause.

When the Check Engine light (or Service Engine Soon) is turned on, the systems computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible faults that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores (USA only) do this testing for free.

My car Suzuki Diesel Grand Vitara appeared th Stop Check engine (Rote Bremswarnlampe - Dutch Language. Please recommend how should I do?

Their is a fault with the electronics on one of the vehilces electrical circuits. This will bring up the malfunction indicator light, you will need to see a dealer with an electronics reader to find out what this fault code is meaning. Most dealers will read it for free, and then charge for the repair from that point. If it was a false code they will also reset it for free. If it is an orange light, just get it to a dealer when you are able to. If it is a red light, avoid driving it and get to a dealer ASAP. this will prevent any further possible electrical damage and any other mechanical damage from what ever the fault maybe. Also, their is a safety issue if the fault is relating to a safety feature of the car. It is hard to pin point an exact fault and exact cost. Cost will vary with the type of fault. Once repaired, the dealer will be able to reset the light for you. Goodluck!

When the light esp comes up what does that mean. We have no manual

ESP is short for "Electronic Stability Program" this system aids in keeping the car under control if you are sliding or skidding, it is part of the ABS brake control system. When the light comes on and stays on this is to alert you to the fact a fault has occurred in the ESP system, if the light just blinks and then goes off that means the system was activated due to excessive wheel slip being sensed and is normal. If the light is on and stays on a fault code is set in the systems control computer, the Suzuki dealer has a special electronic systems scanner that can read what fault is keeping the light on in the form of a code.

Engine management light on ,suzuki grand vitara 2 litre turbo diesel,engine feels slugish

Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any fault codes stored. The check engine light is to alert you that the computer has noted a fault in one of the car's systems. Getting the codes will show what the computer has noted and curb the need for speculation. Most parts stores will perform the scan for free. Hope this helped and best wishes.
