Easy step by step guide on how to retrieve and define Suzuki OBD1 trouble codes.
Difficulty Level -1
- Access the fuse panel on the driver's side lower.
- On the lower left corner of the fuse panel there is an empty fuse
holder, install any fuse, 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
two digit 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, blink four more times, the code number would be 54.
Step 4 -
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.
