Re: i need to replace my car battery... which type and
You should be able to find this in the owner's manual.
The items with batteries that are important are
1) How many Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) are needed to start this vehicle.( Should be in manual and some where on old battery)
2) top posts or side posts.
3) Physical size of battery .Must clear hood and fit snug onto battery tray. (match it up to old one)
4) Make sure battery terminals are clean no corrosion or broken terminals.
5) battery hold downs. Never drive around w/o a battery hold down. Why? A) Its dangerous B) you cut the life of the battery in half.

the starter uses 10x more elect. power than the head lamps
or 100x more than dash lamps. it means little.
what matters most is jumper cable starts.
does it crank with jumper cables to a running, donor car,(aaa jump)
no bad starter
no, bad starter key line( immobliizer or such) ask how to test.
yes, cranks great, now.
that means the battery was dead,
i charge the battery and it now cranks, due to lights left on or
charge system failure, if battery goes to 13.3 to 15v running good
if on the charge system failed. (causing battery discharge)
if after charging a battery it will not crank car, its a bad battery (jumps ok)
clear the light drive 10mils ok now? when you pull the battery all brains in car are reset. all. the A/t will have to re learn your driving style, so let it. you can plug in any scan tool and look to see what error is stored. for as little as $7-15 bucks. or go to the zone and ask em to...
91 Grand Vitara? They don't show one till '99 just the Sidekick and the Sameri The 99 shows a bearing the the hub presses into. This bearing is the one for the front in a four wheel drive. You did'nt say if your four wheel or not either. This bearing costs 20 bucks at my parts store. This is not the right baring for a two wheel drive as I did'nt think you'd be asking if it was ywo wheel drive. the difference between a 91 and a 99 arn't likly as this information is for vehicals sold in the USA.
so you are saying you would replace the alarm system just because you cant find a battery?? thats foolish search online for the battery...there are many interchange numbers so it doesnt have to be a certain brand.
a few options one is to get one second hand from the wreckers or a brand new unpainted one from suzuki that will bring your cost down cheaper again if you take it off and carefully heat up the rear of the spot with damage and bit by bit push it back out
