    to check the relay, swap it with a similar one--like the horn relay. If the horn works, relay is good.

    to check clutch solenoid, use jumper wires to apply battery power directly to pins on compressor. If solenoid clicks, it's good.

SOURCE: htr fuse blown.no heater or blower working.blows fuse instantly

I would have taken it back immediatly and told them that it worked before and oesnt now since they worked on it and you would appreciate it if they at least looked at it.

If they refuse, then never go back and you will have to trace the problem using a voltemeter.

Make sure the fuse is the right Amperage.

Buy a repair manual from a auto parts saled store and see what else connects to that fuse, you could have a bad blower motor, or some other wire that got damaged durring the clutch install.

good luck

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: has a 1999 diesel grand vitara got a cam belt

Yes it has a cam belt.
Caution!!!!! They are a pain to set the timing with a new belt.
You might find that you have to buy the special cam belt setting tool to lock the crank, to fit the new belt.
Suggest you get a qualified mechanic who knows the product to help or to do the job.

SOURCE: engine management light on ,suzuki grand vitara 2

Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any fault codes stored. The check engine light is to alert you that the computer has noted a fault in one of the car's systems. Getting the codes will show what the computer has noted and curb the need for speculation. Most parts stores will perform the scan for free. Hope this helped and best wishes.

SOURCE: has no power

The turbo unit may have bad bearings and is ineffective. Check the throttle plate to verify that it opens all the way when the pedal is pushed down.

Hi I need to replace the serpentine belt on Hyundai tucson (2004) the problem is the air con pulls seems to have siezed, can I get a smaller belt as I don't really need air con in scotland. Cheers


my autodata belt book shows 18 hyundai belt set ups 1992 to2012 and only one that runs a special belt for the ac
for all the rest the ac pulley is required as the belt runs around it to drive power steering, alternator , water pump
test the ac pulley by removing the belt( after drawing a diagram of how it runs ) and trying to spin the pulley
if it is as you say have a mobile mechanic/ ac mechanic come and remove the pulley and replace the bearing ( about 1 1/2 hour and $20.00 for the bearing
if the pulley spins then disconnect the wire to the compressor so that the clutch is not engaged for the compressor

Jaguar x type air con compressor wont engage


ac compressors are protected by high pressure and low pressure switches in the system. If the ac compressor will not engage it may be --no gas--too much gas ---blockage in the system--- no cooling fan for the condensor-- burnt out clutch behind the pulley
have an accredited ac specialist check it out.

2003 Ford Excursion 6.0L diesel. A/c blows warm air, compressor was recently replaced and serpentine belt, AC was recharged, condenser, orafice tube. Fuses were checked and it still blows warm. I put it...


Check that the heater is turning off as the hot air will over come the cool air. Check that the clutch on the a/c pulley is still engaging as it the unit was over filled or has a leak from a badly fitted pipe the high low switch will not allow the compressor to work.. If the work was done professionally check that the correct gas was used and seek warranty for the problem.

We have a 2007 CX7 and the air conditioning is not working well on either recirc or outside air in low ambient temps. When idling at the lights the air con becomes worse. There is no belt sqeal, and I dont...


When you have a moment pop the bonnet and look for the air con compressor run by a automotive belt on the side of the engine. Get the engine running at idle and then get someone else to turn the air con on whilst you watch the compressor. As the system is turned on the compressor clutch should engage and the unit should start turning, if this isn't happening there isn't enough pressure in the system (leak or just low on pressure) Get to your local air con guy and they will pressure test for leaks. Air con system is run on pressure, so that is really the issue you need to rectify

Note:- Manufacturers put the air con rad infront of the engine rad so stones get to that first, check the condition of the front rad through your bumper

Squealing,I have new belts and alternator.


Squealing is associated with belt slippage. 1) ensure that the belt is tight - at the longest distance between two pulleys it should be possible to twist the belt by about 90 degrees only. 2) with the engine running check funder the hood or the free running of the pulleys. a) Ask a colleague to engage the power steering from lock to lock and see if the power steering pump pulley does not cause slippage. b) set the air con to low and watch what happens when the compressor pump solenoid engages. If the belt begins to slip on the air con compressor pulley it is likely that the compressor is beginning to fail by seizing up. In that event preserve the belt simply switch the air con off and pray for cooler weather until the compressor can be overhauled.

Do i need lock tool to change cam belt on a 03 grand vitara


I'd be first confirming whether you have a 1.6 litre Grand Vitara (petrol), or a 2 litre turbo diesel. The 2 litre petrol (straight 4 or V6) or 2.5 litre petrol engines are all chain drive.
If your engine is petrol then no lock tool is required (to hold the camshaft). Of course, there is a specific position that an engine should be rotated too before removing the belt from ANY engine.
If it's diesel, then although I'm unfamilar with that particular engine, the general requirement for diesel engines with high pressure injection pumps is "yes, you require a lock tool" to hold the injection pump pulley. As I think these are a common rail set-up, this requirement may not be necessary. Check with your Suzuki Dealer, or maybe someone else here will know more. A similar question may have already been asked and answered here too.

High pitch whining sound from engine


Check the power steering fluid if its low it could cause this. Also could be alternator, water pump, ac compressor, or idler pulley. My bet would be on the idler pulley, its the one that keeps the belt tension constant. Remove the belt and check this pulley for slack also spin it by hand.
Good luck, dont forget to rate.
