Did you check all fuses yet, (with a meter)
the dash has lamps and tell you if the IMMO is happy or not.
do you know how your IMMO lamp works? if not ask.
or read this.
$4 day pass.
https://suzukipitstopplus.com/Products/1127-2001-swift-owners-manual.aspx

open glove box, find said book.
or buy one used off fleabay and not get stranded.

the IMMO will cut fuel. (on some cars it allows 1-2 second run times)
if the IMMO is ok, then check spark. next.
every car maker uses there own set of warning lamps
on some cars its a key symbol.
on my new car its just a red dot, to fool thieves.
RTM read your manual. Finding free suzuki manuals etc. is hard.
the best place to be is on a real forum. for just this car.

i could not find any operators guides there, but do post and ask
how the lamps work.

My '98 Ford Taurus won't start


"Security" or Key-shaped light flashes on the dashboard ? Your car might be equipped with an immobilizer. (you can find more information about the immobilizer in your owner's manual). The immobilizer allows the engine to run only if the correct key is used. If your car has an immobilizer, you probably see a "Security" or Key-shaped light coming on on the dashboard every time you turn the ignition ON. If this light is flashing when you turn the ignition ON, it could mean that there is some problem with an immobilizer or the system does not recognize the key. If the immobilizer doesn't recognize the key, the engine wold not start at all, or would start and then die in few seconds.
You can try a spare key, if it won't work, your dealer is the place to call. Sometimes, the key is just need to be reprogrammed.

Try 2nd key.

If it does not fire up then it's the immobilizer / alarm circuit at work or at fault.

if you turned the key with the ignition with the imobilizer, you now have to get the right ignition and a new PCM because the PCM now thinks the car has SKIM (imobilizer)

Immobilizer


If there is a blinking car icon with an "X" over it. This icon means the Immobilizer has been activated and hence won't allow the car to start. It could be due to a bad SCU, Start Control Unit. The SCU is actually the ignition switch on these cars.
Most of the time it's triggered by the anti-theft system..You can try this trick i learned that the dealers won't tell you...try locking and unlocking of the doors five times with the remote to reset the immobilizer and see if this helps.
Good luck..i hope this helps...please take a minute to rate me a fixya.

2003 hyundai tiburon won't start, (key shape light comes on)


The key icon is not the check engine light but the immobilizer light, therefore the car wont start. I have the same issue with my 03 Tiburon after i changed the motor and tranny. It ran fine for a couple of days and the quit.
I took towed the car to a dealership and they stated I needed a new BCM for $1200. However, I got a used BCM from an auto wrecker and will get the dealership to program it for about $200.
