Hi

It could be an O2 sensor problem, a catalytic efficiency problem, or even a blocked catalytic converter.

A diagnostic is required to find out which.

Very best regards

Heater light flashing on 1997 vitara jeep not start


what country, which engine>? G16?
where is this light. try to be exact, (on the HVAC controls)
or in the dash speedo cluster?
and we'd need to know if it has an icon, ?
better post , a real photo of lamp.
did you overheat the engine (coolant gauge needle , on H)

as the dash lamps vary by every country a vitara is sold.
the operators guide (glovebox) is the way to know what a lamp means. (warnings) and is unique to your country! fact !

i see UK cars (we are USA here) have CAT overheat icons.
(we dont have that here)
and means just that. (engine too rich and misfiring or rich and exhaust cracks, sucking air ) causing CAT to OVERHEAT.

no start. lets work that now.
ok, key on, CEL glows. (check engine light ) must glow
does it.
does engine crank? fast?
if yes, is the IMMOblizer lamp (dash) happy? (oper, guide again)
if cel on , Immo happy
then it cranks fast ,do you have spark to all cylinders of unstated size engine?

our cars the USA OBD2 scan tools all work in 1997
but in say UK not. so ... that to changes diagnosis BIG TIME>.

Warning light CAT on my Volkwagon 1996 polo. Comes on when turn on car. Soon goes off once I get going but flashes as I'm driving sometimes too


Mine is doing it right now too. We put it on the computer and it said that it couldnt reach the Oxygen sensor which is plugged in either on or near the Catalytic Converter. SO im not sure if its the O2 sensor or the Cat yet.

Flashing red circle light in the centre of the dash cluster. No mention of this light in the ford manual. What is it?


Hi:
The only red warning light that is in the center of the dash is either the brake warning light or possibly the low tire pressure light?

Here is a link to the manual online, and you can look thru the warning light descriptions and actually search this electronic document:

Brake lights out volkswagen polo- P reg My brake lights are not coming on on my volkswagen polo I have checked the fuse and the bulbs but to no avail any other ideas? Thanks


hi when you go under the dash and look up to the brakepedal, you will see a switch, maybe you have to remove one piece of cover under dash, witch detect the pedal moving and switches on the brakelights. when you connect the two wires an the lights come up, all system is ok. correct or replace the switch. good luck.
