Suzuki Code Retrieval and Definitions

AD
The check engine light is used to alert the driver a problem has occurred in one of the systems that control the engine or emission systems. Once the check engine light has come on the computer system has stored a trouble code that pertains to the problem. These codes can be gathered by using a simple procedure and observing the check engine light and counting the number of times it blinks. To enter the code retrieval mode for Suzuki access the fuse panel on the driver’s side. 

On the lower left comer of the fuse panel there is an empty fuse holder, install any fuse and the check engine light will start flashing once the ignition key is turned to the "on" position. Count the number of blinks, this will the first digit of the trouble code. There will be a short pause and then the second digit of the code will be displayed. For example if the check engine light blinked five times and then paused and blinked four more times the code number would be 54. After repairs have been made the trouble codes need to be cleared. To do this disconnect the negative battery cable for three minutes and reconnect.
