Ours only flashes for 1 reasons, it means the system is FUBAR

so bad you are burning up the CAT (its in the opr, guide)

so scan it...

why not state country.....????? here in USA we have OBD2 technology,, others, not till 2001,2006, or 2010... so? worlds a big place. no?

For sure your PCM is P\'\'$$ed off. huh?

our scan tool for 3.6 has Bxxx Pxxxx and Uxxxxx DTC codes.

we use a scan tool

is the chain screaming at you?????



but no matter.

the lamp glows for stored errors, called DTCs

the FSM covers this....

See TSBs on 3.6, bad chains?

Its a half baked, 3.6 GM engine in that XL7,

with an engine like that , youd be smart to own the FSM.

why work blind with any car with and engine like that.

http://www.suzuki-forums.com/2g-2007-xl7/41420-timing-chain-problem.html



and this, part, is a shock, (its a GM license Japanese engine)

note how SUZ has bad chains... in 2007 (my guess, china chains gone wrong, surely not Japanese RK chains, no way..... at all...... ISO 9000 chains are good.



Introduction

Although the architecture for this engine begins with a General Motors North Star design, the N36A has

been redesigned from the cylinder heads on up by Suzuki engineers for application in XL7. The entire

engine is manufactured in Japan, including casting of the cylinder block. The engines are then shipped to

CAMI for installation in XL7. (USA MARKET and CANADA)

This engine is unique to XL7 and is not shared with any General Motors

products that are assembled at CAMI.

Key features to will be covered in detail in this reference book include:

• Engine mechanical configuration

• Camshaft timing

• THROTTLE ACTUATOR CONTROL system (drive by wire)

• Variable valve timing (VVT) for intake and exhaust valves

SOURCE: White Smoke From Tail Pipe/Exhaust

It often means that you are burning antifreeze. You asked if it needs antifreeze, have you noticed any leaking out of the reservoir tank while you are running it? Sometimes when the head gasket goes it will produce a passage for the antifreeze to pass from the capillaries into the combustion chamber. It is easy to check if you have an air compressor. Remove one of the rear sparkplugs and the radiator cap. Fill the radiator and then push some air into the sparkplug hole (get a good seal in case a valve is open). Repeat with all the cylinders and watch for air bubbles coming up into the radiator. If bubbles come up or fluid is pumped out, the head gasket is blown and must be replaced. It is more likely to happen at the back of the engine because it is farthest away from the fan and therefore gets less cooling. Also check your oil for discoloration. If it is a brownish color it could mean your oil and antifreeze are mixing and has the potential to damage your bearings

SOURCE: air bag light is on and the clock is flashing what

You have probably had your battery removed? Clock you can fix by setting the time. The airbag warning light indicates that ther's a problem with your airbag. Check if the co-drivers airbag is turned on. If the light is still on, take it to the shop to be checked.

Check engine light flashing in 2006 chevy hhr


If it is running rough & no check engine light on then the first thing I would to is tune it up. If you have a check engine light then pay someone to diagnosis it & go from there. Usually when the light comes on there is a more promenient issue; that is WHY the light continues to flash.

Speedodometer stopped working, o/d light flashing and my truck does not want to go out of first gear???


The best thing would be to have transmission control module - ( computer ) checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . The flashing O/D light is trying to tell you that . The transmission is in limp home mode . A sensor or shift solenoid is most likely the problem . Your transmission is electronically controlled , has sensors , shift solenoids , an a computer that controls it all , plus electrical signals (inputs) from the engine computer .

1995 F350 We pulled a trailer today and after we got a little down the road the ABS light started flashing. When we stopped for gas we could not get the shifter out of park without pulling the #18 fuse....


Well, it could mean that the emergency brake has not been fully released.The ABS system light is on if something has occurred within the ABS system. Something faulty may have happened there, get it checked out!

I have a 99 Pontiac Sunfire, 2.2L and my turn signals quit working. I replaced the combination switch and the flasher/hazard relay, and still no joy. The problem was intermittent, and now it's just dead....


It will turn on when I hit the button and the turn signals do work. All of this has led to my ABS lights to come on as well. ??????????? Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop or learn to do better explanation's ! Or lean to do automotive electrical testing .

This is how we diagnose electrical faults , not just replacing parts .

Turn Lamps
Voltage is applied through the TURN fuse and the turn/hazard flasher when the ignition switch is in the following positions:
• RUN
• BULB TEST
• START
The voltage travels to the contact in the hazard switch. The hazard switch is located in the turn/hazard-headlamp switch assembly. This contact is normally closed.
When the left turn signal is turned on, voltage is applied to the following components.
• The left turn indicator
• The left front park/turn lamp circuit 14
• The left rear turn lamp circuit 18
The turn lamps turn on immediately. The current flow heats up the timing element. The timing element is located in the turn/hazard flasher. The timing element repeatedly opens and closes the circuit. This action causes the turn lamps to begin flashing.
The voltage that is applied to the left front park/turn lamp is also applied to the left front marker lamp. If the headlamp switch is in the OFF position, the left front marker lamp will find a path to ground through one of the following lamps. The following lamps provide low resistance paths to ground:
• The right front marker lamp
• The right turn indicator
• The right front park/turn lamps
• The left front park/turn lamps
The left front marker lamp flashes with the turn lamps. The voltage drop across the marker lamp is much higher than the voltage drop across the other lamps. The lamps that are used for the ground path will not flash.
When the headlamp switch is in either the PARK or HEAD positions, voltage is applied through the following components:
• The EXT LP fuse
• The marker lamps
• The park lamps
When the left turn signal is turned on, the left marker lamp will have voltage at both connections. The left marker lamp does not light. When the turn/hazard flasher stops the voltage to the turn lamps, the marker lamp is grounded through the turn lamp. The marker lamp does not go on. The left front marker lamp flashes in the following manner:
• The left front marker lamp flashes on when the turn filament of the left front park/turn lamp goes off.
• The left front marker lamp flashes off when the turn filament of the left front park/turn lamp goes on.
Voltage is applied to the right lamps in the same manner, when the right turn signal is turned on.
Hazard Lamps
Voltage is applied at all times through the following components to the normally open contact of the hazard switch in the turn/hazard-headlamp switch assembly:
• The STOP HAZ fuse
• The turn/hazard flasher
When the hazard switch is turned on, voltage is applied to the following components:
• The front turn lamps
• The rear turn lamps
The following lamps flash on and off:
• All of the turn lamps
• Both of the turn indicators
The front marker lamps flash with the hazard lamps on, just as the front marker lamps flash when the turn lamps are on. If the headlamp switch is in the OFF position, the front marker lamps flash on when the hazard lamps are on. The front marker lights will flash on when the hazard lamps are on if the headlamp switch is in one of the following positions:
• PARK
• HEAD
When the hazard lamps are on, the following conditions apply:
• The turn circuit is always open.
• The turn/hazard flasher controls the lamp.
Park/Marker Lamps
Voltage is applied through the EXT LP fuse, to the headlamp switch at all times. Voltage is applied to the park lamps and the marker lamps when the headlamp switch is in the following positions:
• PARK
• HEAD
The front marker lamps are grounded through the turn filament of the respective front park/turn lamp. The front marker lamps light as a result.
Stop Lamps
Voltage is applied through the STOP HAZ fuse to the brake switch at all times. When the brake pedal is depressed, the brake switch closes. This action applies voltage through the turn/hazard-headlamp switch assembly to the following lamps:
• The high mounted stop lamp assembly
• The left tail/stop-turn lamps
• The right tail/stop-turn lamps
