  • 2005 SUZUKI XL7
I have a 2005 Suzuki XL7 SUV. My 4WD lights have been on and blinking all the time while I'm driving. I took it into a repair shop and was told that my wheel bearings needed to be replaced thinking it would fix this problem, but it did not because the lights are still on.

Just wanted to know if someone has any idea as to what this could be?

You need to take to.A shop. That has a full function scan tool. That can read your differential etc codes that's your starting point. Let me know the exact code numbers you have not code descriptions.

Thanks saturntech9, I will take it into a shop ASAP and get back with you on what I find out. I took it in to get my oil changed w/tire rotation and was told that the wheel bearings were lose again. I was confused because I explained to him that I had already done this a few weeks ago at another location.

So I took it back to the repair shop who had done this to let them know about what the other mechanic told me. They took a look at it and agreed that it was loose again and that I needed to get this repaired again. I wanted to know why and he mentioned that it was the 4WD issue that was causing the problem with the wheel bearings staying loose. So I was told that I would need to let them complete a diagnostic test for them to determine what is causing the light to remain on.
Do you have any suggestions to any place where I can take it that has a full function scan tool?

If you have a problem getting a scan you can try this to get the trouble codes.

Without Using SUZUKI Scan Tool

1. With ignition switch OFF position, disconnect SUZUKI scan tool if connected and using service wire (1), connect diagnosis switch terminal ("PNK" wire) (2) to ground terminal ("BLK" wire) (3) in diagnosis connector (4).

2. With ignition switch ON position and leaving engine OFF, read DTC from flashing pattern of 2WD/4WD indicator which represents DTC as shown in example below and write it down.

3. After completing the check, turn ignition switch OFF, disconnect service wire from diagnosis connector.

NOTE:

DTC No.12 means none of the malfunction DTCs is identified.

When more than 2 DTCs are stored in memory, flashing for each DTC is repeated three times starting with the smallest DTC number in
increasing order.

And flashing of these codes is repeated as long as diagnosis terminal is grounded and ignition switch is ON position.
