Model Years Affected: 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008

Average Mileage: 78,538 mi (23,000 mi - 157,000 mi)

Verified

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.

  • 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.

    ck engine light on. pedal sensor out. put new one on,problem still exists. i have stalled out in traffic while this problem exists and almost been hit three times on the open road by other drivers. suzuki will not honor it under the warranty. they wont do a recall on the part. it is a safety hazard on the road. they say it is a part of routine maintenance. someone is going to get hurt or killed by this problem.

    ENGINE LIGHT STAYS ON EVERY TIME I TAKE IT TO THE DEALERSHIP FOR REPAIR I AM TOLD THAT THR ERROR CODE INDICATES O2 SENSOR IS BAD...WELL I HAD IT CHANGED
    3 TIMES...STILL THE ENGINE LIGHT REAPPEARS THE NEXT
    DAY OR AFTER I DRIVE IT FOR AWHILE. I NEED HELP IT

    THERE MUST BE SOMETHING ELSE RELATED TO THE O2 SENSOR

    THAT THE MACHANIC IS MISSING OR OVERLOOKING. IF ANYONE OUT THERE HAS SEEN THIS PROBLEM AND KNOWS AN ANSWER
    PLEASE LET ME KNOW...IM GOING NUTS...THANKS

  • I purchased my Forenza from a private owner. Ck engine light with this code is constantly on. I don't notice any difference as far as the car running poorly. I'd hate to replace the sensors and or catalytic converter now that I know that this is a common problem in these vehicles.

    CEL come on steady, car loses ability to accelerate, then CEL will blink for the remainder of the trip until after it is parked & presumably cools down. In mild temps, the CEL is not lit at ignition, but comes on after a few minutes as engine temp rises to normal range. Reads three CODEs: P0302 misfire (2nd time to mechanic to determine how & where misfire is taking place; new plugs installed; no misfire for 1 month). This car spends most of the time in parking space due to owner's illness; Second CODE:P0420 CAT efficiency below threshold; Third CODE: P0133 O2 circuit slow response [B1, S1]. Mechanic states that "this last code may be setting the other two off - could also be the PCM or it's wiring.Several TSBs on this subject." No one knows what to do. Suzuki service now performed by VW dealership 30 minutes away from my home & they're lost in the Suzuki. Only service available is at VW dealer which charges $230 to diagnose. If no diagnosis is made then there will be further charges just to diagnose. I hate this car.
