We are thinking of buying a 2nd hand vitara. When test drive, the auto gear is hard to pull/push from park to drive. Not sure if its due to low gear oil or going to spoil gear. There is also sound from the rear while driving. Sounds like some item rolling around but found nothing in boot. The hazard light keeps blinking even though doors are closed, hazard lights off (all the time). Please advise.

No other issues were noted the rest of the way to work or on the drive home this evening. I checked the gas cap when I got to work, no help

My fan motor is not running for heat and air. The motor is fine and some say resistor some say switch and this place say control panel? It was running then would hesitate and slow down then speed up and when I started my truck today nothing? Could it be the resistor? I hope so that's only 100.00. How can I tell? Some say the fan would run on hi only if it is the resistor and some say that isn't true....please help

When the airconditioner is switched on there is a 'whir' noise from the engine, when the aircon is switched off it stops - (like one of those kids toys)
Is this something serious that can cause damage and is it easily fixed?

Happens every 2 to 3 days. Engine coughs and sputters. Stops. In 5 min.starts and runs fine again.

and comes back on when I release the brake. The left turn signal on the dashboard stays on when night headlights are on and when day lights are just on the left turn signal comes on when I brake??? My cruise control will not work at times. What can I do to fix these electrical problems?

Air bag warning stays on all the time,dealer said air bags may not deploy in an accident

took my suzuki grand vitara to an emissions testing station. They failed it because they could not get a reading. Said it was probably a bad fuse or a loose wire.
Fuses are good. I have electrical power on both accessory outlets, and went to autozone where they plugged their OBD Meter, with a Ok reading on everything. However there was a N/A reading for the A/C Refrigerant and Heat Catalyst. Cars A/C is working perfectly. Any ideas????

The vehicle is overseas and no dealer available

It will work normal and cool when I press the accelerator.

I have replaced it twice this week do u have a solution?

Recently installed new front brake pads. Now after driving a few miles, when applying brakes, there is a "slapping" type of sound. Noise seems to come from driver side front wheel area. What is the cause?

my car has started making a tapping sound and when i went to get it inspected i was told it was the timing chain

Did not make any noise .

noise everytime compressor comes on

My mechanic diagnosed my non-working air conditioning system as being an electrical problem. He fixed that problem and said he put freon(spelling)in and came back and said the compressor needed to be replaced and it could cost $600 and up. He is trying to find the part now after I paid 213.51 for what he already did.

The airbag and seatbelt lights are staying on all the time when the car is running now the signal alert has started to occasionally go off as well please help any ideas??

They only go off when the car is turned off bad enough but now the seat belt signal has started to come on occasionally please any ideas would help ???

plus the speedometer is going up and down. this happens most when it rains. when the engine light comes on I don't have cruise.

when I turn key lights on dash board come,but no current to starter

My vehicle is chugging. I think it's the fuel filter and hoping it's not the fuel pump. I can often smell fuel in the vehicle.

today after driving 25kms i stopped the car and heard a sound like air blowing out under pressure it was coming from the rear of the motor, there was also an oil burning smell, when i was driving back there was a grinding noise, could have been coming from the crank and only when i pushed down the accelerator, it steadily got worse so I stopped and there was burning oil smoke coming from the motor, there seemed to be a small amount of oil sprayed out of the fly wheel, any ideas?
