Question about Suzuki Swift
I have a Suzuki Swift 2009 model and when I got into the car I smelled petrol. I tried to start the car but nothing happened no lights as if my battery is flat, but why the petrol smell
Posted by Anonymous on
No carbs in 2009 Suzuki sorry! posters.
as ANON, why?
see comment below, for all ways to get fumes
why not say
engine will not crank.
and all lights dead. and cluster lights keyon
so every one knows battery is dead
or just green battery lugs that all do often.
why not get it JUMPER cable started
or if stick shift push or down hill start it
dumping clutch in 2nd gear.
the battery is flat.
you said that, and is,
and when is, get it JUMPED.
like we do on all cars.
see long comment below on FUMES.
covers all ways.

Check all gas lines from your gas tank to the carburetor and see if there are damp spots and if you see any damp spots take your finger and wipe the damp spot and smell. If it smells like gas there probably is a slight leak. even a moist spot of gas will smell big time.
Check all around your gas tank as well. A question i have do you have a clean air filter. If not it might be choking itself to *****.**

SOURCE: Battery Light came on
It is vital that you find the source of the smoke you smelled. That could have been caused by a short in the wiring and has the potential to start an electrical fire.
Now I would expect that a fuse would have been blown somewhere with a short, so check the fuses to make sure they are all good. The fact you still get the batter light indication on the dash tells me that the battery is possibly getting weak. But, if there was a short somewhere, then I would expect to see the batter light on the dash too as a short will greatly lower the available voltage and power available to the rest of the car.
The fact the lights in the car were dim supports this even further.
You clearly have an electrical issue somewhere and the first steps would be to look for a short in the electrical wiring. The tough thing is that it could be just about anywhere. But do a visual inspection on the wiring in the engine bay. Look for any burnt wiring or any signs of melting anywhere. Check all the fuses. If you find one that is blown, it may point us to the circuit that is in trouble and possibly shorted out.

1st make sure your connections at battery and starter are clean and tight. Next pull the battery out and have a parts store check it's condition. Even though the lights and radio work, it may be too weak to crank the engine over. If the battery checks out ok, then you are probably correct, it's the starter. Check in this order though, so you don't waste $ on parts you don't need. You don't want to pull the starter out to find it was a weak battery, or a bad connection (dirty or loose connection would prevent jump start from working.)

Sounds like you have burned a belt off the pulley for the alternator and water pump. Dont drive the car until you have verified the belt is intact and the water pump is turning. Something had to have caused it if it did, I would suspect water pump, alternator, or air conditioning compressor has siezed if your car is equipped with it.
