No carbs in 2009 Suzuki sorry! posters.
double posted
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.

    no cranks,jumper cable start r it. YET?.
    now HAS fumes.
    gasoline/petrol
    there are many ways to get fumes, none good.
    your mech checks these systems.
    EVAP vent system, for leaks, (tests,ask)
    gas cap missing or loose. easy huh>????
    vandals?
    fuel lines leaking, there can be 2 lines
    one going to fuel rail and back, all can leak. only looking matters, pondering zero.

    the vent system is huge, parts wise.
    lots hoses ,gaskets etc.
    the mech(mechanic) pressure tests vent systems.
    the fuel injectors can leak and you will smell this.
    the mech, looks for this and does injector
    leak down tests and balance tests on them to
    see if they are ok.
    also one more way:

    say,you tried to start car.
    and battery was weak (or spark weak)
    and you cranked it till the battery is now dead, gas smell is NORMAL!
    is this enough information?
    or or too much.
    if much , why ask us at all.
    (do ask why it dont crank) now.

    ask your mechanic. he is alive and real.

    in USA we call, AAA TOW,
    HE JUMPER cable STARTS IT FOR US
    AND WE DRIVE TO BOB THE MECHANIC.
    END.

    no lie, fumes can be a big hazard.
    fuel leaks tops that list
    i never drive cars like that
    i inspect every inch, of fuel system.
    be safe.

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.)

SOURCE: 1993 mazda 626 LX 2.0L. Smelled burning smell

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.

Look under the cart and make sure the wires to the motor are good.
