Question about 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara
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.
