    i finally broke down and took mine to a mechanic. my problem they think is a short in my cigarette lighter. i can replace the fuse and drive it for several days or even a couple of weeks, then all of a sudden my clock and radio aren't working again. as for the interior lights, the interior lights come on when the passenger side doors are opened but not the driver's side. the mechanic showed me how to wiggle the little catch thing there where the door closes and it works intermittently. this is an inexpensive fix, $35.00 for each door for the part. sorry i can't remember what the part is called but any mechanic should be able to tell you. hope this helps.

    thanks, i finally found the fuse box and replaced the fuse my owners manual said controlled the clock and radio, the one under the hood, and it still didn't work. took it to a mechanic and he got up under the dashboard and replaced the fuse. the fuse under the dashboard is a much larger fuse than the one under the hood. anyway, works for a while then the same thing all over again. now he thinks it's a short in my cigarette lighter. we'll see how long it lasts when i get it fixed this time.

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.

If it's in the same spot as my XL-7 then you'll need a flashlight and u will have to get your head under the driver's side dashboard area. Look above the accelerator on the right hand side kick panel area.

You should see some relays at the lower part and then a large black plastic cover- the fuses are under there.

I have the same problems with my interior lights and head unit not working in my 2000 vitara. My problem however is not the fuses because there are certain random times when the above electronics DO work, then they will shut off for no reason. I am guessing a wiring problem in my case, which will have to wait to be fixed until I can save more money. I hope for your sake its just the fuse!!
The fusebox is pretty much directly under the steering wheel, under the whole dashboard piece.

I have no side lights working on my 1999 Suzuki grand.vitara and the dash light for lights don't work Please help

If you have no side light's around the whole car then I would say you have a blown fuse. There is a fuse box in the engine compartment and under the dashboard drivers side. There is a diagram on the lids of both fuse boxes. This will show you the side light fuse amperage and position.

No power to cd player or ceiling light grand vitara 2003

fuse, called dome fuse is blown, or radio fuse.
fuses that look bad, are, fuses that look good, may be...........
check fuses with an ohmmeter, fuses that look good can have very tiny cracks and are not good, only an ohmmeter works, on fuses with 100% accuracy. (a volt meter works in circuit even better !!!)
Did you test the dome lamp to see if it really works?
pull it , put across 12v battery ,does it glow?
did you look at the radio. and see if it has its own inline fuse?
did you hot wire the radio power wire to see if the radio even works at all?
if you have DMM with voltmeter this is so very easy to trace.

The radio/clock dash light on my 2004 matrix are out! ...solution?

The 15 amp dome fuse is in the fuse box under the hood and the 15 amp CIG fuse is in the lower finish panel up under the dash on the drivers side. These are needed for the radio. The above fuses plus the 15 amp Gauge fuse in the box with the dome fuse under the hood are needed for the clock.

I also have clock removal instructions at my website
