Periodically cuts into safe mode

2007 RWD Hilux. Periodically cuts into safe mode. The only common symptom seems to be that it only happens in 2nd gear. When you turn the engine off then back on the revs are fine again but engine management light stays on but goes out after a few hours. Any ideas as to the problem would be great thanks

You need the system scanned by the dealer for fault codes that caused the CEL to turn on.

I have a 95 3.0l and mine does this when the fuel filter or injectors are blocked. I ran a bad batch of bio diesel and had the same thing about 6 times. As soon a you take your foot of the revs the light goes back out.

SOURCE: Rev counter jumps whilst idling and then engine cuts out

Your problem sounds as if the thermo sensor....which controls the air fuel ratio when engine is cold....is faulty. It is a common fault on this model.
This is not an expensive part, and takes only a short time to fit.
Good luck

SOURCE: Transmission or Engagement issue?

I had the same problem with my 2006 Forenza - the problem was the transmission range sensor. If you look under the hood, on the drivers side, you'll see your trans. cable connected to a round part that also has an electrical cable coming from it. That is it. Part costs $36.07 at oemsuzukiparts.com (search for Neutral safety switch in the mechanical catalog).

These are common symptoms and usually mean the worse.IT is possible you have a bad pressure control solenoid but this is rare.I would start with pulling codes if any are present.Good Luck.

I jumped started my 2007 Torrent and now the radio wont come on, nor the sound for turn signals.


Not a solution, but our torrent is doing the same thing. Periodically things like the radio, blinkers, dash lights, etc won't work. After parking the car for a while and trying again they seem to work again. This continues for about 2 weeks then the car decides not to start. After recharging the battery; a couple of days later the cycle continues again.
We thought it might be a short in the DVD player as it happened when we left the disc in, but the dealership has been unable to duplicate the issue.
Everything from updating the software on the electric seats has been done without success.

Transmission has reverse and low. Will not shift into any other gear.Was working fine but then would not shift from Low into any other gear. It still has reverse.


most likely it is in fail safe mode witch is 2nd gear. This happens when the computer sees something something wrong. If the speedo is still working it's not the output sensor and could be the solenoid pac.

Power steering pump seems to be dieing on my 2001 hyundai elantra


If it happens mainly when your car is cold, it is a common symptom known as "morning sickness" or "black rack disease". Check your power steering fluid to see if it has become discoloured. If so, try flushing the system and replace the fluid with an approved power steering fluid. If this does not solve the problem, you may need to replace the rack and pinion steering unit.
