Checked fuse #17 and it is fine the switch lights up as if working but no heat ..could there be a relay and were is it located or a part#. I don't believe it is an element problem since they light up can you Please tell me what to look for next. Can it be a different fuse but my owners manual states fuse # 17. PLEASE help. They did work fine just stopped. Also my transfer case was leaking fluid but a bolt was missing came from the factory that way.Replaced the bolt hope it stops!!!

The car is running great and has been maintained religiously. At about 42k miles it began making a whining noise that goes up and down with engine rpm. No warning lights on dash and oil is good and changed regularly (Mobil 1)
What is the problem? We tried pushing the car, towing the car that only round my tires, when the tow truck put out on the flat bed the tired moved but as soon as we put it back on the ground nothing again
i am replacing the crankshaft on a sx4 and i cant figure out which angle it should be set at. it is located on the crank inside the motor, no marks on anything, searched everywhere online, called dealers...etc. any help would be great. thanks
I know my tensioner pulley needs to be replaced but could it be causing my crankshaft pulley to have to pull harder causing my engine to loose oil? My car is loosing oil very badly a quart every several hundred miles. The crankshaft pulley is squealing some as well. I just don't have the money to go to a mechanic and get charged thousands of dollars and possibly still not have my car fixed.
The radiator is working getting hot top bottom and both sides but I can be backing up and it over heats then I have to wait 30 minutes to an hour for it to cool down with the car off and the heat on
and engine rpms excessive. Was there a problem with these transmissions? This is the awd model.

I got stuck on I89 in the State of Vermont. I believe that I got overcharged! I knew that my problem was an alternator. The Vermont State Police called a company that according to the VT Secretary of State has not been authorized to do business in Vermont since 2013!
The bill states:
Enroute Miles: 6.0, Loaded/Towed Miles 11.0. They had to use dollys because of the type of car. Total Cost for towing for 17 miles was $125.00
Then they had to removed the alternator & replace (for which they told me it would take 5-7 business days to get) which I supplied. The housing itself was cracked beyond repair for which the company that supplied me the alternator stated looked like someone "manhandled" it and didn't know what they were doing when they removed it.
They had to remove the engine belt;
They had to Charge the Battery;
They had to remove the power steering Public for the helt removal;
They claimed they had to remove one tire and wheel and torque to 90 foot pounds.
They claimed it took 4 hours @ $60 for a GRAND TOTAL OF $365.00!
The vehicle was towed on Saturday, June 7th, 2015. The owner (who by the way did the towing and repairs himself) told me that the car would be ready on Monday, June 9th, 2015. They hadn't started working on it until Wednesday June 11th, 2015. When they finally got the alternator out they told me it would take 5-7 business days to "obtain" an alternator! At that time I said I would locate one.
Within one hour after going to the shop that refurbishes alternators in this area they said they could not repair it (see above). They sold me a "reconditioned" alternator for about $140.00. I immediately took it back down to this repair shop. They then promised me that it would be fixed by 10 am the next morning. They told me at about 12 noon that it wasn't fixed; that I could not wait for it at their shop; and that if I didn't leave and not come back until they "called me" they would have me arrested!
I called the State Police and they claim that even though this company had been the subject of "numerous complaints" in the past; that they were not authorized to do business in the entire State of Vermont because of their issues with the VT Secretary of State; and that they had numerous violations of the Americans With Disabilities Act ("ADA") including not a simple handicapped parking space as required by federal law that the State Police would not remove this company from the "rotational towing list" used by the Vermont State Police and local police agencies throughout the entire State of Vermont!
After finally picking it up (after having to rent a car from Avis at a cost to me of about $300) I traveled about 20 miles. The alternator light came on, and the car died. The belt on the alternator had come off and broke! I ended up paying another $145 for yet another tow and that repair!
YOU COMMENTS PLEASE?
checked the timing, and the wiring to camshaft sensor, all good, it acts like it is not getting enough fuel to start,
I bought a new Mazda so I parked my Suzuki in the garage. It was last driven regularly in February. When I started it last week and drove it, the yellow check engine light came on and started blinking. What could cause this since it was running perfectly before I parked it? Could the oil or gas have gone bad or settled? Any help would be appreciated.
If u push the gas pedal really hard it smokes like crazy then stops in a little while unless u do the same thing
Whether puddles or large qty of water is swooshed, the check engine light appears. I took the car for the code check and am told that the P0420 Bank 1 catalyst system - low efficiency. Does that actually mean that I need to change the catalyst? How will I know what the real issue would be? My car has approx 179K miles.
Can you let me know what the problem may be?
