    Having both go bad at same time is weird, that's why I didn't mention it. But if that is the case then it's easy fix.

    2006 Suzuki Reno Electrical System Recall 12V397000

    NHTSA: Action Number: N/A Service Bulletin Number: 12V397000
    Report Date:
    Aug 14, 2012Component:
    Electrical SystemPotential Units Affected:
    101688Manufacturer:
    American Suzuki Motor Corp.
    Summary: Suzuki is recalling certain model year 2004-2006 forenza and model year 2005-2006 reno vehicles manufactured from september 23, 2003, through march 7, 2006. 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.

    Consequence: If the headlamps fail to function, this will lead to reduced driver visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.

    Remedy: Suzuki will notify owners, and suzuki dealers will reconnect the affected wires with two heat-shrink crimps, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during september 2012. Owners may contact suzuki at 1-877-697-8985.

    Notes: Suzuki's recall campaign number is nu. Customers may contact the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty: 1-800-424-9153); or go to http://www. Safercar. Gov.
