Question about Suzuki Grand Vitara
My battery light came on last night as I drove home - the car over heated - It needed coolant. The battery was very corroded on top at the cable connections - cleaned with baking soda, the light remained on and car continued to over heat. Can not drive vehicle. My battery is 3 years old and is probably past the due date to replace it...could that be the reason why the charging light is on or is it something else?
The battery light comes on when the alternator is not charging the battery.
Is the alternator belt in good condition ?

G8D711S is not alarm system. This is Daytime Running Light module. You can pull out the connector, your front lights won't work when an engine start.
My GV 2002 has a Autostart AS1203 alarm system. There is a description on Internet.

u either have a shorted cell in the battery or the system has a current draw like a glove box light being left on, try disconnecting the battery the next time you leave it, if it starts ok then u have a current draw and need to find the source of that draw.

you may have a clog or your water pump is not working.

Testimonial: "yep, was a clog in the radiator. Flushed it out with hose , works fine now .. thanks "
make sure thermostat is in the right direction. put a new gasket. try a cleaner and fill radiator or have it rodded out along with maybe your heater core. drain and refill. put fresh oil in it now.

My wife left the ignition on with the lights on and drained the battery completely. I'm having the exact same problem. Any ideas how to fix it?
