T.p.s sensor problem..

2005 Suzuki Reno | Answered on Sep 10, 2019

What two sensors? When a battery is disconnected and replaced, the car needs to start and stay at idle for about 20 minutes to relearn the timing etc...only then should it be taken for another 20 minutes of normal driving on road and highway at normal speeds...this should fix the issues. Start by disconnecting and reconnect the battery leads...turn to start position without starting...leave 2minutes, turn off..wait, turn on and fully start.... leave idling awhile as above...

Sam the A/T trans in all cars is the most complex of all
I know it seems simple until it breaks.
or until actual fix one.
tell us with the trans does good and bad in ALL GEARS
slips or flairs
skips gears
will not up shift to gear ? name gear
will not down shift, same.
noises odd. or vibrations.
will no move. car at all

get it serviced
check level using operator guide method do not guess.
check fuse
scan it yet

I just love terse questions like this.
(push reset in the scan tool)

Speed Sensitive Power Steering System Description

goggle much?
the operators manual told you what.
it says get the car serviced, the magic SspS is failing
and need to be scanned now.

lots! (can talk this all day) (a/t are no simple)
find a smarter shop!
going to a transmission shop they go , gee, that is all we know
here, swaps (or rebuilds only) AAMCO?
first stop is:
try a real ASE mechanic that can do the many tests on car.
called ON CAR tests, in the FSM
all my answers are for usa, cars,if not ignore all my posts.


$4 and is ReAL, not fake or cloned'

goggle find my ASE shop, BINGO.
type zip bingo2.

700 means tranny errors, any. (ignore
734 ( serious)
check levels yet, per above method(link?) step by step?
check fuses just in case.
oddly this car has a separate TCM tranny brain,
that drives 6 solenoids inside the box.
most suzuki a/t there is a secret( in fsm on all that do)
manual test mode. on most you un plug TCM connector and drive
to see if 4th gear really does slip, my guess is yes.
if yes slips, its bad trans, of no slip bad solenoid.
watch out manual mode can skip gears, #2 or 3, so test only 4.

replace the valve body, we do on regular trans, not sure
if that works on this transaxle type? (i dont have the book on this box)
in my shop i can hot wire solenoid(before retired)
this proves not TCM and is in the box
then i check solenoid coil ohms. 10 ok , 0 bad infinity bad.
10 can be 20 , idont know, the book above tells coil spec.
the soleniods can be bench tested.

fsm quote

nice double ANON post. backup one post and read.
it was answered.

2005 Suzuki Reno | Answered on Mar 29, 2015

look at both sides of engine.
one side has a starter. (all engines)
if not on front, side, that means it other.
exhaust side or intake, side, look both?

sold gas and diesel , ill toss coin, lands on gas.
2.0 L Family II I4 (petrol) GM engine. L34 ! Daewoo X20SED
2.0 L RA 420 I4 (diesel)

all this is on alldata.com
or the 4 buck suzuki page

gas is twin cam belt drive
The L34 also known as the U20SED is a 2.0 L

so lets use real names for engines, (daewoo/gm mixed up)

one way to see parts, on and engine, is pretend to buy one used

see cam belt.
see intake side, bingo>?
see stater hole there????? gapping wide.


Easter egg hunts,
did you know you are not helpless.
the dealer pages show all parts

and alldata.com it there too.

and the real FSM , is there too... posted 100s of times.
$4 to look. best deal of any car maker....

and suzuki is chapter 11 here, so sell it.?
if in USA./ sell it. I would.

The port in the larger of the 2 AC lines from the compressor is the port you charge at.

1: WOT flooding trick cuts all fuel , for cleairng floods
acts/ does mean a wild guess or test. a test would be to look
at spark tips and seeing dry or soaked in fuel
check all sparks ,post which engine you have.
2: 10% throttle starts implies the IAC/ISC is stuck closed
or injection rates are horrible. there are many tests for that.

give it a tune up. and then check for leaking injectors.
if still bad. or dead injectors.
we can do lots of tests. engine, spark and fueling , in that order is best.

2005 Suzuki Reno | Answered on Jun 02, 2014

a tune up. did you do the service on the car.
filters, spark plugs?
did scan it, to see what DTC errors are set? that is required.
and 02 sensor can die at 100,000 miles the design life span. "bosch"
which engine, option.
1.4 L I4 (petrol)
1.6 L I4 (petrol)
1.8 L I4 (petrol)
2.0 L I4 (petrol)
2.0 L I4 (diesel)
we can not help you , unless. engine is stated and country.
www, the world wide web, make it so we can NOT guess any of that.

the ECU/PCM on your car goes to GREAT efforts to prevent stalls.
the top reason for stalls are:
1: never doing the service per listed items in the glove box guide.
2: EGR stuck open. (if your's has one, some dont)
3: lean air fuel mixture, (lots or reasons and tests)
4 gross rich air fuel mixture casing gross misfiring and stalling.

or something worse. there is always that. eg: burned head valves. etc.

Yes, the rear wiper has it's own control which is separate from your windshield wipers. Look around on the dash and I am sure you will find it.

2005 Suzuki Reno | Answered on Apr 29, 2014

a used engine may be the way to go. call junk yard or look on ebay for one. u can also just get a used engine head instead of redoing yours it would be a lot cheeper. I think 1500 is to much just for parts for a 2005 car

2005 Suzuki Reno | Answered on Apr 10, 2014

Test your old egr valve--then install a new one.

If it is a vacuum only,you use a vacuum gauge (off motor)
If it is electronic throw it away

Either way it's time for a new one

You can have a shop look at scan tool data if that
is avail
