Question about Suzuki Grand Vitara

1 Answer

2002 suzuki grand vitara charging system light is on, battery is also probably needing to be replaced? Is the light for the battery or something else - Car overheats when I drive with with the light

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.

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.

SOURCE: Battery needs jump start if car is not driven for 3 days.

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.

Sounds like you just lost your belt. Take a look to make sure you have a fan/serpentine belt still on there. Good luck

Engine management light on ,suzuki grand vitara 2 litre turbo diesel,engine feels slugish


Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any fault codes stored. The check engine light is to alert you that the computer has noted a fault in one of the car's systems. Getting the codes will show what the computer has noted and curb the need for speculation. Most parts stores will perform the scan for free. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Try these easy things...take off clean and reconnect the battery cables, take to Auto Zone for a FREE computer hook up. More than likely if the battery hook up doesn't work it's the oxygen sensor.
