Here is what I would do. first i would search for "suzuki" and "instrument cluster" or "dash" over on www.youtube.com and see if someone has posted a video showing how to take the cluster out.
failing that i would buy a cheap CD repair manual on eBay to see how to get the cluster out. i would imagine they all come apart about the same way so it does not have to be an 06.

first make sure all fuses are good, then i would pull out the cluster see if there is any obvious visual fault. i would pull and test all the bulbs and if bad replace them. if the bulbs are good then look on eBay or craigslist for someone selling a vitara part by part. again most likely more than one year will match your car. There is also a GM tracker series which is the same vehicle so those parts will also fit your car.

with so many different things not working, you must assume a common element has failed, such as a ground or one of the 12 volt supply wires.

I had an 01, and my speedometer always indicated about 5mph too fast. two dealers told me to live with it as a new cluster was ridiculously expensive. i doubt they got any cheaper in 9 years.

The speedometer is operated by a cable to the transmission. The gear selector is also a manual linkage. Neither are electronic. There may be something stuck underneath inferring with them directly.

My check gauges light came on and my gas gauge, temp gauge, speedometer and of course odometer are not working.


Mine has done this a few times after having disconnected the battery for service. Disconnecting and reconnecting the battery a second time brought them back. A mechanic friend told me it hase something to do with the ECM relearning after having been disconnected. Hope this helps.
