Question about 2004 Suzuki Aerio

1 Answer

The air conditioning compressor has died in my suzuki liana 2004

The air con has died in my car (which has done less than 50,000k's and has had lots of air con problems since new). the dealer wants $3,000 just for the part and i can't afford it but need the air con as we live in a hot area of australia, north coast nsw, and my partner has breathing difficulties. all the suzuki parts seem to be over the top expensive and i'm worried that more will need replacement soon so thought we might be best off looking at trading the car in. (recently the hatchback struts died - for the 3rd time - and Suzuki wanted nearly $600 for two new ones. fortunately i was able to have 2 specially made to fit the car by aussie gas struts for just over $100 but would have had to go without if i hadn't found them). i don't have a clue what cars are easy to drive and affordable to purchase and repair. i drove a nissan micra for a short while and i quite liked that but i don't know about maintenance and repair costs for it. any advice would be great, thank you.

    thank you, I specially appreciate you giving me the name of a good place to try. i'm in lismore but i can give them a call anyway as if they're able to fix it at a reasonable price we could go to the tweed. i'm not hopeful though as the mechanic who looked at the car after the compressor went was great, (he's in woy woy if anyone there needs someone fantastic) and was pretty sure that suzuki make this part in a way that it can't be replaced by a generic part. when the compressor went it was quite spectacular with lots of smoke and sparks pouring out of the car and a horrible smell and a screaming sound (from the car too, not just from me). we thought it was on fire but fortunately not. it took the power steering belt out which made driving really difficult until we were able to have it fixed, and as we were on our way to Sydney for a family funeral, and on one of those huge fast freeways with lots of trucks,it was horrible. the air con had been coming and going for a few weeks beforehand but i had no idea it might do what it did. i thought i'd mention what happened in case anyone else has similar not serious seeming problems with their car air conditioning. all the best...

Where is crank sensor liana 1.6


welcome to the USA forum , is your car USA.
no.
my guess is it has the M16a engine
see bottom left CKP #5
The M class engines , its on the PULLEY side
and facing said pulleys, (regardless of car it is)
its to the right of the pulley
that means the crank tone (teeth) wheel is behind said pulley on end of crank shaft.

we do have swifts here with m15 or M16
here is the CKp sensor on the M151af3207a-b3d0-4af0-9cf7-86ddd395ba79.jpg

Where in suzuki liana 2004 is the rear left window fuse


old post
electric window fuse. the fuse box is clearly labled,, miss that?
we dont have Liana, here,
so where are you., the manual and car vary by country sold.
go to suzuki and ask for a FSM,factory service manual.
if doing DIY serious work.

you could just check all fuses in 5min flat.
and that ends this search. fast.
so?? I use a thing called voltmeter. if all fuses have 12v on both
ends, key on, the fuses are all good.
then check for 12v at the dead motor. active.
1: got 12v, yes, motor is bad, no it ,just makes funny noises.
if motor makes noise, the window is jammed. check it now.(guides)
2: no 12v?, backup to switch, its failing.

ok 3 ways answered.

2004 Chrysler Voyager, had an acrid burning smell and a lot of smoke when heater is turned on, also a rattling/squealing noise, all stops when heater turned off?


you more than likely have a sciezed air con compressor. most modern cars have climate control which uses air con even when demisting and when engaged the electric clutch tries to engage but the pump itself will not turn, clutch will get red hot and burn your belts

1999 grand jeep cherokee limited air con prob water coming out vent behind driver seat and water drops noted under glove box front passenger side ???? what to do air con recently regased works well but...


You have a leak in your air conditioning compressor Your system works on the reheat principle All air passing through the system is cooled and reheated before it enters the cabin this sould be dehumidified air but it passes through the heater core and sence the air is not dehumidified you are getting condansation as the air flows the heater core that is heated by the engine heat and the water is from condencation because of the leak in the ac compressor The unit is a press fit in the center of it and fials unfortinatly a lot with this disgien of compressor

SUZUKI AERIO ENGINE CUTS OUT ,JERKS AND SURGES ON


I have a 1.6L Liasna/Aerio. 2002.130,000km.
Recently it had a problem, a problem that I seem to see on other websites.
The vehicle was cruising on the highway and suddenly jerked, surged, and cut out. Another case was when it was stopped at the lights and the RPM faded to a cut. Accelerator application would not keep the rpm up.

The common factor in all four cases was that it was a very hot day. Temp was 32-35 degrees C, (around 95 degree F).

I let the vehicle cool down and then got a restart and limped home. Sometimes had a repeat enroute. A dangerous exercise, having the engine cut on a busy highway!

The vehicle then started and ran on cooler days without a murmer.

The local Suzuki shop had a look at it but nothing showed up on the inbuilt computer!

After a fourth incident I took it back to the Suzi shop and this time the service rep said that they had had a few other Liana's come in with the same problem. These vehicles were with the later larger engine, the 1.8L M18A.
The problem it would appear was the CRANK ANGLE SENSOR. A bit of solid state kit it costs about A$100 and is located near the alternator. After replacement I have had no problems but I need to do some driving in hot weather to really find out.
In the trouble shooting game you sometimes need to work on the process of elimination so I also had the air filter replaced as well as the Air Inlet Temp. probe (IAT). (Both inexpensive).
From reading up on Suzuki Liana/Aerio (US) problems I can see more than a few which I can put down to a problem with the CAS.
Some vehicles seem to have a problem in that they will turn over but not start. Again most likely a CAS problem. It would seem to me that if there is one consistant problems with Lianas/Aerios then it is a faulty CAS.

The CAS replaces the older distributor. A gear wheel in the engines turns next to the CAS and that in turn passes a signal to the vehicles computer to fire the spark plugs. The CAS may be a solid state bit of kit but can still fail.

Radiators. The Liana has two radiators, each with their own electric cooling fan. The left unit is for the engine block cooling fluid. The right unit is for the air con unit and for external cooling of the engine block and accessories mounted behind the engine. Both radiators have heat sensors. The left has a temp probe that when high turns on the elec cooling fan. The right cooling fan will come on when the air con unit is turned on or when the engine block gets hot. Be advised that the Liana/Aerio runs cooler than a lot of other vehicles so, even on a hot day, the fans may not come on when you expect them to. The CAS unit is located in a hot part of the engine so when the outside air temp rises, such as on a hot day, the temp of the engine block and the oil inside it as well as the air around the CAS probe rises and that is when the unit fails.
Perhaps I if I were to design or modify the Liama (a great little vehicle) I would direct a bit more cooling air around the CAS.

The CAS is a part of modern cars and I note that the CAS in other cars also fail so it is not a Liana/Aerio only problem. Given time and experience car designers will rid us of this over-temp CAS failure problem with better design.

Comment; If you are having a problem such as described then get the CAS replaced. It may be the item that the mechanics overlook in their trouble shooting but is the key to your problem.

Enjoy driving your Liana/Aerio! I do!
