The headlight switch and daytime running lamp module may overheat, melt and cause a risk of fire. Dealers will replace the signal switch, add a jumper relay kit and replace the daytime running lamp module free of charge to resolve the concern.
Suzuki Forenza Recalls
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. If the headlamps fail to function, this will lead to reduced driver visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will reconnect the affected wires with two heat-shrink crimps to correct this problem. The Suzuki recall number is NU.
A melted splice pack in the wiring may cause the low beam headlights or daytime running lights not to function. Insufficient lighting could reduce visibility and increase the potential for a crash. Dealers will splice the power circuit wires for the low beam headlights and DRL free of charge. The recall began October 31, 2007. The Suzuki recall number is NB.
The front seat belt may not latch correctly in the buckle. In rare cases, the locked seat belt may come loose unexpectedly, disengaging without pressing the release button. These malfunctions could cause the seat belt not to function as designed in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the left and right front seat belt buckles to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on August 31, 2007. The Suzuki recall number is KY.
The brake light switch may be knocked out of adjustment if an upward/rearward force contacts the brake pedal. If this happens, the lights would remain on whether or not the brake pedal is applied, and will remain illuminated even when the key is switched off. This condition could drain the battery if left, and increase the risk of a rear end crash since drivers will not know when the brakes are applied. This condition would also disable the automatic transmission torque converter clutch, cruise control, and the traction control system. Dealers will replace the brake light switch. The recall began March 16, 2005. The Suzuki recall number is KF.
The dual stage driver's frontal air bag may deploy in an improper sequence. If the air bag deploys improperly in a crash, the driver could be severely injured or killed. Dealers will install an adapting wiring harness. The recall began for Verona owners October 30, 2003. All Forenza vehicles were repaired before being sold. The Suzuki recall number is KB.
