2006 Suzuki Forenza Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2006 Suzuki Forenza

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 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.

It seems like the throttle actuator may be the source of the problem. The engine surges intermittently. the exhaust smells very rich. when this occurs, if I regulate the accelerator the speed fluctuations seem to smooth out. I think the transmission P...

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.

I am still trying to figure out what is wrong with my car i have put about $700 hundred dollars on tune-ups, sensors etc and the problem still exist, the car stalls or hesitates when crunk and then the poof of smoke comes from the talepipe. What to do, is what i think about everyday.

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...

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...
