I have a 2004 FSM and alldata.com account so can get
all facts and all p/n of all parts on car.
fast. and have a car same.

The car has and OBD2 scan port. why not connect a real scan too
there and look for DTC errors, the CEL is mostly USELESS unless dead keyon.
the CEL if for smog.
the Scan tool shows all errors. scan it. why work blind?
also using live data stream, with tool crank engine for 5 seconds
and look for live CMP or CKP sensor errors. ( many so called pros dont even know that trick) check TPS action key on.
Is ECT sensor (and IAT) reading near ambient air temps?
it can starts so those 2 sensors read ambient. if not they are bad.
or disconnected. etc.

post my tests results and year.
get cause fast.

no year,? wow.
but is it blowing cold air. (or dead blower?) ill assume cold fast air.
ok there are only a few ways.
1: ENGINE NOT reaching, 180F temp and holding, (a meter check in 1min flat)
2; the HVAC failure.

check fuses. yet/?
does heater fail in all modes of heat and vent directions?

this sample page works on all cars.
the HVAC details vary but the principles are all the same.


Suzuki Grand... | Answered on Dec 13, 2014

1958 GV? or is this UK license jargon for 2008.? use real years please.
it's not telling you a lie. it is real the immobilizer is active.
it sees a fault.
we just scan the PCM to see why, ?
get it serviced? or are you asking , DIY.?
check fuses first.
make sure all keys fail. did you, try both 1 in car not 2 in side.
try both fobs.

engine oil 15w30 or 20w 50 if warn or in a hot climate and 10w20 or 15w30 in a cold climate. brand is immaterial but a quality oil is recommended.

If it has good pedal and just won't stop you probably are not getting any help from your power booster. Check for the vaccum hookup at the motor and on the front of the power booster behind the master cyclinder.

Suzuki Grand... | Answered on Nov 17, 2014

wow, no year stated, and is 1st question, on all books and online sold.

I guess, you work FSM free????? no books , no online alldata.com account, or even this.?

here ill guess for you, 2005?


4 bucks and not only the torque but how not to muff up the cam timing

and many other special instructions, do so and maybe win.

Suzuki Grand... | Answered on Oct 19, 2014

no near stated,now that does makes this IMPOSSIBLE just that.
no 4wd system stated.
which one?

on mine, 04 , you must never drive on dry pavement in 4wd
its part time 4wd not AWD
do you have AWD.
if car is fitted with PT 4wd, , then drive to dirt, or grass or ice or snow
and put car back in 2wd.
or risk winding up the driveline and damaging it.

starting in 2004 this system is an option, got this knob?

yes? or no, we can not guess this, it must be stated.
or read the operators guide now and see all those warnings there.
see the LOCK word, that too means stay off of dry pavement.

Suzuki Grand... | Answered on Oct 16, 2014

can be 100s of parts there
noise discover and solutions are all 100% hands on, help
no net bunny , can do that, we cant hear it or find it .
use a rubber hose to the ear to find what exact part,
is it only moving this noise, that takes 2 people to find,
one to drive , one to probe with a hose. glove box off.

get it serviced.

Suzuki Grand... | Answered on Oct 13, 2014

wow, a post with no year car, now that is challenging.
read the manual yet.?
fixing air bags is not a DIY job. not really.
but if fisky, RTM , read the manual.
its all there.

at random i pick 2005, wild guess.

see the bag pages and read,
then ask related questions.

4 bucks cheap, free really.

Suzuki Grand... | Answered on Sep 28, 2014

run the fault codes to find if the cam/crank position sensors are operational. Check to see if the cam shaft/s is turning ( broken timing belt). Check operation of the immobiliser

common issues are timing belt and immobiliser and lack of fuel pressure .

Suzuki Grand... | Answered on Sep 28, 2014

old post
find location, we are blind and deaf here,

Suzuki Grand... | Answered on Sep 22, 2014

no year. wow.!!!
all parts on the car are important to something.
what is the question. ????

tromba is shaft or horn??
ah trouble with.... i get it. not Italian.

the thermostat holds the engine coolant at 180F+ at all times.
if not the engine will suck fuel, like mad.
and cause high engine wear,
and other effects.

dose the CEL glow , driving? Check engine lamp?
if yes, scan it
if not scan it 2 more time.
the 2009 will most likely ,show DTC errors.
why not scan it, and for sure moving and bogging.
for sure.

Suzuki Grand... | Answered on Aug 24, 2014

we cant answer that, on most cars, there are 100 freaking lamps now
no year. so cant even guess that.
the operators guide lost in the glove box, that has all lamps and all meanings. try read that , buyin that or get one here.
rtm (2005 wild guess by me)

or on same site, buy the oper guide. and read it.

Suzuki Grand... | Answered on Aug 24, 2014

the hoses are all in plane site, see them see it go to tank
and to motor, sure you can. just look again, use better light.
or for $4 read the washer chapter,
