2006 Suzuki Forenza Problems

Check 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.

High and Low Beam Head Lamps May Stop Working

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.

Lack of Power and Check Engine Light On

A lack of power may develop, accompanied by an illuminated Check Engine Light  with fault code P2106 stored in the powertrain control module (PCM). This fault can be caused by a throttle actuator which has only limited movement. The correction for this condition includes replacing the throttle actuator and updating the PCM software.

2006 Suzuki Forenza Recalls

Headlight 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.

The High and/or Low Beam Headlights May Fail

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.

Low Beam Headlights or Daytime Running Lights May Not Function

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.

I'm the original owner of a 2006 Suzuki Forenza and for the most part I have been pleased with the car, its been dependable, and gets good gas mileage.

I've had my Suzuki Forenza for 6 years, and have been disappointed for many of them. There's not been anything more disappointing than working with the Suzuki dealerships - who are blatantly out for money. I've had several cases where I would call when things randomly broke (the seat belt wouldn't plug in, BOTH front car handles broke off, it locked me out and wouldn't stop beeping, it stoppe...
I just recently bought a 2006 Suzuki Forenza with 78K miles from a dealer ship. The check engine light was on, and they told me to do a drive cycle to get the check engine light to go off. Within two days I drove the car 209.4 miles and the car lost power. I was in a parking lot and had the gas peddle pressed to the floor the car was only going 20mph. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figur...
