The mpg will go up and down depending on how car is driven.

to help you we need to know which mpg you are referring to.

three i can remember of the top of my head are 

average mpg this has a zero with a slash through it .this changes according to your average mpg you are achieving.

instant mpg , this changes instantly if you pedal to the metal it will go very low 7.1 mpg etc ,and if you come off the accelerator it should show no numbers --- 

the last one is range of the fuel tank this will change gradually and in some cases when inclines and declines are encountered on the roads..
hope this helps

I have a saab 1.9 tid the battery not charging light came on ,abs light and other warning lights and the power steering stopped working any idea what the problem is ?


Hi Dave, The problem is that the alternator is not charging, Because of this the battery voltage goes down and the reason it affects the power steering is because the power steering pump is driven by an electric motor ( not the fan belt ) so the system shuts the p/s down to keep other functions running ignition etc, so the engine will keep running to get you home. But steering will be very heavy.
Once you replace the alternator all will be fine
Hope i have been of help to you with this problem

2005 Suzuki Forenza warning light: Right side of dash, looks like a steering wheel with exclamation point to the right of it....Power steering seems fine and fluid is full. What is this?.....Thank you!


Speed Sensitive Power Steering

(SSPS) Warning Light


Your vehicle is equipped with Speed Sensitive Power Steering (SSPS).

This is a computer-controlled power steering assist system.

The warning light you are describing will come on briefly when you turn the ignition to ON as a check to show you the bulb is working.

Then it should go out after a few seconds. If the warning light does not come on, have it fixed so it will be able to warn you if there is a problem.

If the warning light stays on, or comes on while you are driving, the SSPS system may not be working.
Your computer will need to be scanned to determine what the problem is with your SSPS system.

Sounds like the belt let go and maybe got jammed on the way out. The belt power the alternator, power steering pump and water pump etc. Check for a seized pulley as well. Sometimes the little bearings go.

Warning light came on after I had to steer around


you may have damaged a wheel speed sensor. you need to have the vehicle scanned for fault codes. if some part of that system has failed it can be pinpointed thru the scan tool. you may also just need the code cleared.

Dash light won't stop flashing 1 mpg what could this be?


I don't have my manual with me but that is a self-set speed warning. Essentially, you can set an "alarm" to go on when your car reaches a set speed...to alert yourself that you should slow down. To reset the speed alarm, go to the desired speed and hold down the "check" button. Otherwise, just look it up in your manual. It's fairly easy to fix....

Steering warning light on 2005 suzuki reno


Speed Sensitive Power Steering
(SSPS) Warning Light
If your vehicle has Speed Sensitive Power
Steering (SSPS), this warning light will
come on briefly when you turn the ignition
to ON as a check to show you the bulb is
working.
Then it should go out after a few seconds.
If the warning light does not come on, have
it fixed so it will be able to warn you if there
is a problem.
If the warning light stays on, or comes on
while you are driving, the SSPS system
may not be working. If this happens, see
your SUZUKI dealer for service.
