Question about 2004 Suzuki Grand Vitara
I had a Grand Vitara with a similar problem many years ago. We had traded the car and it was fine. The first rain we got, it didn't want to start. We had fuel dribbling out the tailpipe, but it would only cough occasionally. After going through the obvious things, we pulled the ECM out of the car and proceeded to empty the water out of it! It turned out that the previous owner had had a new windscreen (incorrectly) fitted before trading it in, and the source of the leak was actually the gap between the glass and the bead of sealant that is squeezed onto the windscreen frame area prior to fitting. There is a rubber trim around the glass, but that ISN'T a seal and we removed it to pour water directly around the glass. The bead wasn't high enough and so water could get in. I mention it here because this leak also couldn't be seen, as once the water entered the car, it was behind the A pillar trim (inside) until it reached the dash area and then ran down into the ECM harness and into the ECM. The car was then in the workshop, so not a lot more water got in to puddle on the carpet. Have you had a new windscreen lately?
