2005 Suzuki Forenza ProblemsCheck Engine Light on With Code P0133
The Check Engine Light may illuminate accompanied by a code P0133 (bank1 O2 sensor) stored in the powertrain control module (PCM). This is commonly caused by a failed air/fuel sensor. Our technicians tell us a revised a/f senor and (PCM) software upgrade may be necessary to correct this concern.
The head lights may stop working due to a failed connection at the multifunction head light switch. Our technicians tell us there is a harness connector repair kit available which should be installed in conjunction with dielectric grease to seal the connector. 2004-2006 models have been recalled for low beam and daytime running light malfunctions.

A hard starting condition may be due to low fuel pressure. Our technicians tell us the powertrain control module (PCM) should energize the fuel pump for 2 seconds when the ignition is turned on in order to properly pressurize the fuel system. Correcting this condition may require updating the PCM software.

2005 Suzuki Forenza RecallsHeadlight Switch And Module May Melt
The headlight switch and daytime running lamp module may overheat, melt and cause a risk of fire. Dealers will replace the signal switch, add a jumper relay kit and replace the daytime running lamp module free of charge to resolve the concern.
Increased resistance due to poor contact between the terminals of certain wires can generate heat that can melt the splice pack used to connect the power circuit wires for the headlamps. This can result in intermittent or total loss of low/high beam headlamp function. If the headlamps fail to function, this will lead to reduced driver visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will reconnect the affected wires with two heat-shrink crimps to correct this problem. The Suzuki recall number is NU.
A melted splice pack in the wiring may cause the low beam headlights or daytime running lights not to function. Insufficient lighting could reduce visibility and increase the potential for a crash. Dealers will splice the power circuit wires for the low beam headlights and DRL free of charge. The recall began October 31, 2007. The Suzuki recall number is NB.
