My first thought is "how long has this been going on?" . If it has just happened say after the last fill up, perhaps contaminated fuel is the issue. What do you mean by "cutting out"? Is it like a misfire or an absolute shut off?

    I will do a little more research for a fix. This is likely going to be pretty easy.

Where is the fuel cut off switch on a 2001 suzuki grand vitara


why not post symptoms and ask a question.???
no engine size stated of the 3.
first off. there is no such switch.!
THE PCM on ALL suzuki's made In usa (ours vary)control the fuel pump and injectors under all conditions, not you, or any switch
it has no inertial switches like FORDs, its not a Ford.

the PUMP (fuel)
is activated cranking, the PCM closes a relay the relay sends 12vdc to the pump cranking ,an when running,
if the engine stalls for any reason the PCM cuts fuel at the injectors
and the PUMP.
that is how it works,
reasons to cut fuel are.
1: not running
2: lost spark
3: lost spark precursors, CMP /CKP senders, (same as lost spark)
4: cuts fuel cranking in the wide open throttle crank mode (super secret unflood mode,)

Hello, I think Suzuki offered Peugeot/Citroen Diesel engines in the earlier models but started offering Renault Diesel in 2006. I believe that the gas motors were all Suzuki.
If you find that this info to be correct would you please enter a "fixya" rating.
Thanks, Gator241

Bust alternator for a diesel Grand Vitara 2005 2.0 TD RHW Peugeot engine


The cost of many of these units is quite high, compared to what they used to be. Still, the choice of new, reman, or even one from a boneyard is your choice!
Consider that a new unit is just that.eEverything including the case is new. A remanufactured unit is "iffy" and depends upon the quality standards or the manufacturer... Some only replace failed items, clean it up and let it fly... Better shops, replace not only failed items but items which are slightly worn or prone to failure. (a good rebuild includes brushes, regulator, end bearings, diodes and anything else they deem necessary) When buying a "boneyard" part, try to get one with low miles, preferably one that looks as if it was recently replaced, or one that was in the latest year vehicle that fits your application. As I said the choice is yours!!!
Good luck!
