Having problems with your 1997 Suzuki Swift ?



Answers :

In the 1995-97 Suzuki Swift/Geo Metro/Pontiac Firefly the engine won't start if the auto. transmission is in any gear other that park or neutral or if the manual transmission's clutch pedal isn't depressed ALL THE WAY, or if you have a kill switch on it. If the car shuts off power to the radio and more specifically if it blacks out the indicators it means that the car is refusing to start the engine, not that it can't start the engine. If you are stepping on the clutch properly or have it in the right gear (auto) and it still won't start you might want to check on any sensors that tell the car where the clutch pedal or gear shifter are. You might also want to check on any electronic anti theft devices you have in the car: if they are worn or damaged than they might be stopping the engine from starting.
First check groud termenal &change it if it seems in bad condition. then check batrry &charg it or replace if still not good.after starting engine check charging from genarator if its bad or no charge fix genarator
