This solution is not specific, but their is at least 1 manufacturr recall to correct the wiring for the ESP.
also their is some Firmware upgrade available for the engine computer at your Suzuki Dealer.
Finally my Dealler corrected a problem with an underneat wire connector hos strated to corrode. I had exactlythe same symptom described along with occasinnal errtic hidle engine speed.

I have a 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara with 96000 miles. The ESP light comes on intermittently. When it does, the vehicle won't go over 20 mph as it is some sort of ******** engine management.mode.

esp can come on , just driving wildly or any tire slip.
the ESP uses brake and throttle and trans controls to limit slips.
that overheating statement is false. pure conjecture.
serpentine belt, why that?
why not use a real FSM book
and a real scan tool, and not work blind, the oper. guide is useless.
"says get it serviced, all other words, not driving badly are useless"
the 20mph is limphome mode. and is serious issue that.

the fsm is here, read that. first , then scan it.

just 4 bucks

now read this carefully the 3 ways it works.
Throttle, brakes or transmission.

if any of the 3 things fail, ESP will be upset,
ESP is last. dead last in the chain of logic.
all most work correctly first.
one thing this is comon failure is DTC for the throttle by wire
if it fails ESP will fail. how can it work with bad precursor systems?
even bad brakes, @!!!!!

why not scan it. all scan tools new can scan suzuki codes
for newer PCM.s
my innova. 3160 does.

you can not fix these cars with out a scan tool.
period. sorry. but that is a fact.
in fact , i usually must drive , scan and log to find most errors.
cant do that at autozoned, not ever.

I have a 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara. ESP light in on and other lights are flashing. Is it oK to drive with this on?

Yes it is ok to drive but you have no stability control system at this time. This can cause a roll over if you are placed in a sticky situation.

I have a '06 GV and in the dash appears the ESP and the ABS lights. What the ESP light means and how can I fix it? What I have to resolve with the ABS light?

the ESP is the electronic stability program it works in conjuction with your abs, its it's to help you not over steer your vehical if you go into a skid, the abs keeps the wheels from locking up so you also don't go into a skid when hard braking, check all your wheel sensors and your brakes to make sure you do not have any broken wires or contaminated connections.
hope this gives you some ideasgood luck!!

2006 grand vitara, making sudden loud screechy sound, & lost power steering, when a/c is off, power steering is restored..

Sounds like the serpentine belt is slipping and perhaps struggling to turn pullies.. this would result in horrid squealling noises especially in cold damp weather and loss of power steering ability when A/C is on

(A/C on equals extra strain on the belts grip, when turned off the A/C pulley spins freely hence less strain)
