Question about 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara

1 Answer

I have Grand Vitara 2006 Luxury 4WD. Recently nosies started coming from transfer case. Mechanics removed and has shown me the component inside that is going to be replaced. I don not know the name in English but it is located on mainshaft, round with teeth. I can not find the website where i can buy components of trasfer case. Mosty sell transfer case assembly. Can you help with the name of that part or can you provide a diagram where i can visually find the part?

SOURCE: cabin filter element location

Filter is located behind the glove box. All you need is a screwdriver to replace.

1. Open the glove box and empty to take the weight off the box.

2. On the right side there is a plastic hinge like device held on by one Phillips head screw. If you have trouble removing with a Phillips screwdriver you can remove with a narrow flat head screwdriver. Remove the screw and slide hinge off the mount.

3. To drop the glove box press the sides slightly inwards while 'forcing' it open beyond it's normal stopping point. Careful as when it releases it will fall wide open and may even fall from its hinged area. Set it aside.

4. Behind the glove box there is probably some fiberous material inserted to prevent noise like squeaking when it rubs. It is sticky on one side to hold it in place. Just remove and place out of the way.

5. Behind the fiberous material there'll be a cover which kinda looks like a grille. Mine was white and it is in the center of the opening. Remove it by releasing the clips at the left or right. It comes right out.

6. When the cover comes off slide the filter out and replace it. The filter lays flat and just slides in and out easily. However, if it has been some time since you replaced be prepared for a lot of debris on top of the filter such as leaves, grass or other general type of debris that has been sucked into the filter. It also may be the source of any bad odors that you smell through the air conditioning system.

7. Reverse the process. Replace the cover and push the glove box lid back into place. When you replace the glove box be careful to make sure the hinge you initiallly removed the screw from is not left behind the glove box or you will have to remove again to get it out. Replace the screw and do not over tighten as it screws into plastic and then your done.

SOURCE: Since I replaced the battery my car's engine shuts down.

you may try cleaning the throttle body. I use carb cleaner and an old toothbrush. hold the throttle open and clean it real good. then start the engine and you may have to hold the gas pedal halfway down until it starts and runs smooth. after that see if it will idle on its own, if not you may try unhooking the battery for a few minutes and then hooking it back up and try it again. if that doesnt do it, you may need the dealer to look at the IAC......... Idle Air Control.

2006 is 2nd year of option AWD
is your car awd?
or part time 4wd used every year to here>
if not AWD

4L is never for dry ice free pavement, ever.
on both AWD and PT 4wd
the operators guide says that and the damage word.
read it , lost it? we have it.ask...?

KNOB, see the word lock, ,
means it's not AWD in that mode. 2L lock is part time only.

this page coves all VITS made
from sidekicks ,tracker and newer, say 2006 or so...

even shows AWD part id 23 that does all that magic.
with AWD. but never in 2L lock.
no center differential in 2L lock, at all.

and is a danger drive, using it wrong.
to you, others and windup damage to car.

that only half the story, the page above
covers lots more.
the rule in 2L is this.
one tire needs be on ice, or dirt.
or bad happens.
same with PT box.

true for VIT and jeeps. lock or part time 4wd

2006. How to go from 4wd back to 2wd?

XL7 or XL-7 (not same car)??????????????????????
lost the glove box book?? wow, that be scary for other on your road.
are you even on a road, offroad.or on ice? where?
which 4wd system do you have, we are to guess that?
sure you can if awd, turn the knob.( if no knob its not AWD)
do so moving as slow as possible. dead slow.
in the PT system you need to be on ice or dirt
or the gear box can lockup in 4wd.
do so as slow as possible saving the poor dog gears.

on suzuki , 2004 introduces AWD
some started in 2006
and is an OPTION day 1, buying 4wd cars.

im guessing GV Xl-7?????????????????????

the book is here

Suzuki grand vitara dtc 1213

2.7L V6? automatic tranny?
P1213 , you left off that important P, C, B or U
there is a C1213, so I guess that.

what is the question we have a DTC error.
the operators guide tells you get the car serviced./
so ill assume (unstated) you want to fix it your self? is that it?
with no FSM? no factory service manual?

C1213 is 4wd transfer switch probs.

FSM quote. see FSM for details on diagnosis.
Trouble Code:
Transfer Shift Actuator Motor Position Switch 1 Circuit Open Trouble Code Conditions:
Transfer shift actuator motor position switch signal voltage 4.2 V or more.
Possible Causes:
  • Transfer shift actuator motor position switch
  • Transfer shift actuator motor position switch circuit
  • 4WD control module
see here

I have a 20008 vitara and while driving the 4L and 4H lock lights come on for a few seconds and then go, usually when the suv requires power. the error code on the scanner is C1213 (transfer switch c

is this the full time or part time option.?
we cant guess that.
do you have AWD
as seen here

if you drive with the center differential in lock , do not do that
its not for pavement.
did you read your glove box operator guide yet? get one.
or look here
here is a cheat sheet print it out and glove box it .

if you dont have AWD then you are driving wrong.
if on pavement and is very dangerous to do for you and me sharing the road.

I have a Suzuki 2L diesel 2004 Grand Vitara and recently the 4x4 does not disengage even though i have put the lever back down to 2. Eventually after a few hundred metres it disengages back to 2 wheel...

hello and greetings. you did not say what driveline options
were purchase when car was new. so, can not answer.
but if car is PT 4wd, I can. if not get it fixed, by any 4wd shop.

the car is full time 4wd or AWD ?
the Part time 4wd must not be driving on dry pavement.
so drive to dirt or grass or ice and then shift back to 2wd

there is a TSB from Suzuki on wind up.

sure , the 2004 options statement here. and the rules for PT 4wd.

Suzuki Grand Vitara/Escudo -full-time 4WD using limited-slip center differential, off-road 4WD with selectable center differential lock and low range transfer case 4 mode (4h, 4h lock, 4l n), traction control and electronic stability control
Suzuki offered as an option AWD for Grand Vitara's in 2004 (XL7 too) Some Suzuki AWD you can not use lock on dry pavement, so read the operators guide carefully.

suzuki sells the operators guide if lost,
$4 day pass
$25 for full pdf.

4WD not working properly

this is most commonly caused by the motor on the transfer case that engages the 4X4 either sticking or defective, sticking can be caused by dirty fluid, have u ever serviced the fluid in the transfer case, it should be done around 30,000 miles if u use the 4X4 allot.

If the t-case is visually not broken, it could be just a strecthed chain inside the t-case. A chain is about 280.00 dollars plus installation
