Possible immobiliser cut in Grand Vitara 2.0 td 2000

Sometimes when i go to start it, you let it heat up but the heater light[thats the one with the 2 curves... kinda] starts to flash and engine will only turn over but not start.I have to disconnect the lead from battery and replace it again and it starts then.Does this sound like immobilser cutting in ? Would greatly appreciate help? Right hand drive Ireland .Thanks

I have had the same problem and also had the problem where I had to replace the immobilizer.

If the immobilizer is not working you only will be able to start the engine if you connect the diagnostic computer and reset. The engine and starter does not start.

If it is problem with the glow/fuse only glow, switch off and glow a few times and you will be OK

It sometimes dies at a light. Al way starts back up and sometimes on highway can feel it cut out less than a second then runs fine. two times service engine light comes on then will go off.

Youll definitely want to have fault codes scanned 1st. any time a check-engine light is on, there should be scandata and freexze frame data that will greatly assist in establishing symptoms and conditions for making a better diagnosis. that info is very exact and detailed to conditions and I would proceed without it.

Sounds like you just lost your belt. Take a look to make sure you have a fan/serpentine belt still on there. Good luck

2000 suzuki grand vitara: broken heater fan belt? I noticed a light 'thwapping' noise coming from my center dashboard heater vents and then a burnt rubber smell. I am thinking there is a heater fan belt...

There is no fan belt Cassandra. It is possible that the blower motor is shot. Take it in to a well known shop and have them look at it. DO not run the AC unit it's been repaired if the fan motor is binding for some reason it will make the wiring going to the unit hot and could result in a compartment fire.

Suzuki grand vitara 2000 model the engine light blinks

Take your rig.. drive it to a gas station.. fill the tank up with gas.. also fill 2 jugs of gasoline at the same time... put the jugs in the back of it.. now drive as far as you can until the rig runs out of gas.. then, take the two jugs of gas.. pour it all over the rig, inside and out.. now light it a-blaze, then walk to your nearest car dealer and buy a new car..
