better is alldata.com
alldata.com runs on all browsers, unlike the pesky Mitchell.
wont open by all means, or just a clicker or what?
are the kids locks set.
read the operators manual in glove box, it answers that kids deal.

wow, no YEAR stated, not that make, this very hard, huh????????
you cant.
the TPM'S scans all tire sensors all the time.
if one is unhappy , the lamp glows.
the FSM covers this> (factory service manual)
or alldata.com
did you check the spare,. mine car has 5 sensors.

there is a tool that costs , $150 that allows me to walk the
car and find the bad tire. sensor.
but you dont have that.
but all tire stores do.
but they will be compelled to fix it (strict laws here)
find one that will do only a scan, is the best path here.
on my car, it has an upgraded cluster brain, that says which tire fails.b
but one year early not, just one in 5 bad.
on many cars a real scan tool , connected to the OBD2 scan port
you might get DTCs for tires.
there , ive stated every why.

now my guess. 2008 GV
: B1411 (2.7L V6 VIN - Auto)TPMS Tire pressure low (tire pressure sensor No.1) if you had scanned it first (any scan tool) youd see B1411,
but im guessing year here. so.... is all like tears in the rain.

vits have many engines,
and more world wide
and more in all years made
non of which was stated
mine is a 04, 2.6L V6, unlike all others, totally.
if G16, timing belt?

Suzuki Grand... | Answered on Jul 20, 2014

a/t? auto or stick?
we cant guess trans, ever. on vits.
ill roll the dice, lands on 4speed a/t
and lie all A/T
the PRNDL switch must be good.
lights flashing means what. do tell?
my wild guess, is battery is dead, and lights dim at instant of cranking moment.
battery voltage needs to be 12.6v reset, no 11. not 12.
on a nice summer day

You ask the question twice with different
issues, on each question

With that -I will say we are at home like you

No one works for FIXYA or gets paid or has to
answer one question ever.Sort of like facebook
just a free chat room,not an automotive tech hot
line --shops pay a couple thousand a year for

If you can not open the door, to then remove the door
panel, to see the problem with the handle or whatever,
you will need a cop or lock smith to try & open it

I will tell you that working inside a door can be easy &
it can be a challenge & almost all the time your going to
get cut on the sharp metal edges & gloves don't work well
in there,long river driver shirt sleeves,no gloves

With no vehicle experience, your done & need a repair shop,
once inside the door

Does the remote open it?

bad U-joints,
are you in 2wd or 4wd, do not use, 4wd on dry pavement , ice free.
or it will wreck the transfer case.
if noise in 2wd, that can be u-joints

get it checked as noice is not something we can hear ,here.
noise diagnose is a hands on deal,
and tools make finding it vastly safer.
finding noise on moving car, can be very dangerous.
we use a steelman , 4 channel stethoscope to find noise.
if the axles and tranny are not making noise.
its a bad u-join, or bad mount.

no year stated.
but most are protect, via this way.
ask your lock smith , he know this.
remove the whole assmbly.
and behind the cylinder is the locking pin for same
this makes it harder do steal and so do the antithieft bolts
holding the whole thing ,in

old post. ask for more details
its in alldata.com, and the FSM.

remove pump.

if g16 engine, ask.

this post is not very descriptive, is your overheating its to late to worry about proper torque for things like head gaskets, theres only a few items that need an exact torque spec. "good and snug" really is good enough for almost everything other than heads,mains and engine internals.
