Question about Suzuki SX4

Losing electrical power

I have a 2000 suzuki quad master that keeps losing power, which doesn't affect it running. The power(ie,lights, electric start) keeps going off on my atv. When it goes my electric start won't work. If I even give cord a small pull while holding start buttton, it will start to turn over but not catch. I can pull start it and eventually it will come back when i hit a few bunps on trails but will go agin just as fast. I realize i have short but need a wiring diagram or some way to track it down as i've never worked on an atv before. Thanks

SOURCE: Won't run

There are several no cost things you can look at for starting the engine;

) Is an anti-thief system killing the system ?
) Try giving the solenoid on the starter a few sharp hits. Sometime the solenoid sticks. If this works you would still have to replace the starter. It will only work a few times.
) neutral safety switch - This switch on the transmission prevents starting in gear. Try PARK or NEUTRAL.
) starter relay - this is the relay to transfer power to the starter. When you turn the ignition it clicks on to transfer power to the starter. I think it may be located under the hood.
) fusible link - This is essentially a fuse that limits the maximum current to protect the circuit. Believe to be under the hood. They can get corroded or burn out. Your lights will work but the starter will not.

I believe it will be one of above but of course as suggested you can take it to a repair shop.

SOURCE: 98 Suburban: Loses electrical like a short robbing power to drive

Perhaps alternator is not charging the battery properly 
Test with a voltmeter - fully charged battery should read approx. 12.8 without engine running
With engine running should read 13.8-14.2 .
Check the sparkplug wires and make sure the sparkplus are tight 
also check the two basic and very common thinks for this problem.the fuel pump and fuel filter.
if the pump is clogged and filter is dity this can when ever the fuel gets clogged ,this would make the car stall out and lose power as soon as the engine stopped sucking the fuel due to the debris .
check out this.
thanks,please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.

SOURCE: 2000 ford windstar... electrical mess!!

one reason for that fuse to blow is a bad brake pressure switch on the master cylinder. could be a
warranty/recall item. can also leak brake fluid. also check behind each wheel for any sign of brake fluid,
particularly the rear wheels if you have rear drum brakes. fixed one here recently where the vehicle's jack
came loose in the right rear compartment and short that circuit. make sure your jack is stowed properly.

good luck

SOURCE: all warning lights on dash come on and all electrics stop working

The common problem with the dashes on the Jeep is contacts. Remove the cluster and try cleaning the electrical contacts with a Q-tip and alcohol replace cluster and try again.

I keep losing power in different spots ie first my stereo went out, then my wipers, and now its my tail lights, do I need to rewire the whole truck?

I would check the earthing cables first, as this is the likely problem and can affect a large number of items.

There is one from battery to body, one from body to engine, and several small ones at lighting points etc.

A poor ground return connection that is corroded or has broken strands will cause a lot of apparent electrical problems.

The issue stems from the fact that a lot of items on the vehicle will share a common ground cable from battery negative to the bodyshell.

2000 dodge dakota quad cab 4x4 v8 air conditioning set on max stops coming out of the vents when accelerating or pulling a load and feels like it loses power, it doesn't do it on the next lowest setting....

Sounds like you are losing too much vacuum under acceleration. Possibly a partially stopped up converter, or bad intake manifold gasket. Possibly a bad door actuator in the heater box also, and the loss of power would be a seperate issue.

Losing power and getting sluggish

First check transmission fluid. If you have a lot of miles its a good idea to change fluid and filter. Also the fluid in rear end. Hope this helps and have a good day.

Brake fluid transfer from Master pump to ABS pump

hi from uk if you are saying that the brake master cylinder reservoir fluid is falling in level? and that there is signes that fluid is leaking from the ABS hydraulic master cylinder ie fluid is leaking from the arpeture where the electrics wiring loom enters then there is probably one of the piston/valve seals leaking within abs assy ? or is leak from somewhere else? not had this problem before with fluid passing from abs assy resulting in reservoir losing fluid in this way?

It sounds like one of the wires is loose or not grounded. Check your fuse box and see if some wires have come apart from under the box.
