Recently replaced transmission sensor. With the key in the on position (not started)the battery light is on so I don't think its the alternator. The car started slowly then after work tried not to start at all. One battery terminal had corrosion that cleaned up nicely. Now it starts easier but does have hesitation at start and the driver's air bag light came on. So far runs fine. This car is breaking me with repairs, I will never buy another Suzuki. Any ideas on what I should check next?
When picked up it made a huge cloud of smoke under the hood. Mechanic retrived it and messed with it for several days. Now they say the AC is causing the problem and we need a new compressor. This AM the bettery light came on and it made a strong electrical fire smell after I had the deforst on . Went off after about 5 minutes. I think this AC thing is a crock, how would a mechanical system like that be causing the problem? I think it's being overloaded by the fan and other accessories and the alternator they put in is faulty or ? Bad voltage regulator? Bad ground? FYI We replaced the battery this winter with a slightly smaller one we had from a car we junked, but it was nearly new and worked fine all winter. AC was OK last time I checked, not running it except when I forget about the deforst....
