Had the same problem with my Grand Vitara XL7.
It was put on a computer to diagnose problem. Turned out to be a problem in the emmissions. sensor. Reason turned out to be that it is only driven gently and as it is a V6 2.7ltr engine, it needs to be driven with the revs going over 3000 occasionally.
We took it on a drive on a long straight road in 3rd gear only and kept it going none stop with revs going over 3000 for a distance of 5 miles. This cured it.
It was a build up of carbon or something like that, what we did had the effect of clearing it.Blowing out the blockage.
We did not do this lightly, we were advised to do it by the mechanic.He warned us that it might be a bit noisy and said if we did not fancy doing it he would do it for us.

Problem has never come back since.

2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara won't start engine


what engine, state engine size and country.
there can only be 3 ways, to fail.
bad engine (low compresssion, us the $20 tool at WOT and see over 170psi.
Bad spark
bad fueling.
just because spark coils (COPS?) work on other car , dont mean much.
what counts is your car , its a system.
the cops, have fast 5mS pulse when firing, you using a scope to see that?
Im so curious, why not to the time old test, use a real spark plug
attached to the COP end, spark plug shell grounded to engine metal
and crank, is spark good x4? or x6 if V6 (engine NOT STATED)
is it? then spark is good, leaving fueling.
do not touch the spark plug cranking, it can hit 100,000 volts.
I use a ground strap on the spark plug casing, hands free, or you can be hurt bad, by the spark or when you jump and cut arm backing off
on cars that flood, is it flooding?
I found my engine compression good, then found all 4 sparks fire good.
so i pull the fuel pump relay. killing fueling.
i then use "test fuel" to start engine (again, text book tests)
I use the new CRC brand of test fuel with top end oiling.
i spray it in the plenum, and it starts.
if the spark plugs are bad, (part oftune it up)
it may not start if flooded,
use WOT at the throttle (cuts fuel) and start any flooded engine.
if the spark tips are black and stink of raw fuel (wet with fuel)
that means flooding.
pull the fuel pump relay ,test fuel runs for 3 seconds. each time.
3 second spray max. each time.
if that works out, then find reason for flooding if flooding.
if not flooding, you find dry sparks.
then trouble shoot no fuel.
fuel pressure not near 30 PS?
fuel pressure too high say, 60, it will flood for ever.
there are only 3 tests.
and 4 counting wet /dry sparks.
the tests done, will put you on the correct path every time.
no guessing, no swapping parts to other cars.

Car konks out and check engine light come on.


The check engine light is because all check engine light codes are caused by components that affect emissions. It's not actually an engine problem, it's a problem with either your O2 sensor, MAF sensor, fuel/air ratio, pyrometer, or exhaust.

Check engine light, falling revs


The check engine light is an indication that the computer has detected a fault in one of the car's systems. Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for fault codes. The codes will show what faults the computer has identified. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. This will help narrow down the cause of your problem and help you make a determination on how you want to proceed. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Engine warning light stays on my suzuki grand vitara what does this mean


It means there is a fault stored in the computer memory that needs to be identified and fixed.
Have the code read or take it to advance auto and they will lend you the reader so you can plug into the diagnostic port under the dash and read the code.
The code reader can then be used to reset the check engine light and turn it off.
