Default Re: Issues with my Maruti SX4

Today the handle of the oil dipstick broke so I went to buy a new one to the nearby MGP store and it was for 360 bucks. The guy said the others are for around 50 bucks but the SX4's is SGP.

Another example of SGP being much more expensive than MGP.

So it turns out the "kat kat" sound in my SX4 is not the lower arm but the steering rack assembly. My local garage guy took a test drive of it and said that this noise is clearly because of the steering rack. And this is exactly what Maruti told me almost 2 years back. Now comes the bad part. The assembly is for 30k. So I can't make up my mind whether to get it replaced or not.

Hello Team,
I have run 1.01 lakhs now. There was oil leak in left front and rear shock absorbers. Today I changed all 4 shock absorbers. I had bought TRW shocks online. I got it installed from MASS. Car feels more stiffer now and handling is slightly improved with little compromise on low speed ride quality.

Also I noticed very minor wheel bearing noise. It turned out to be rear left bearing. To my shock, bearing is integrated with hub and ABS sensors which comes as an unit and costs 13k. I have postponed wheel bearing replacement for now.

I found out a diagnostic mode for the Climate control system in the SX4 today. The procedure is very simple:

Set the following selectors to specified positions below respectively with ignition switch off position.
  • Temperature selector to maximum cool
  • Blower speed selector to OFF position
  • Air flow selector to AUTO position
While pressing A/C switch and air intake selector switch simultaneously, turn ignition switch to ON position. Wait for about 5 seconds (start of diagnosis). Read the flashing pattern of Fresh air and recirculation indicator lights which represents DTC. Here is a video of the same:

The flashing should be separately counted for both lights. In my case, the Recirc light flashes once while the fresh air light flashes four times. That can be interpreted in the table below extracted from the service manual:

So this indicates that in my car, error B1504 is throwing up which is to do with the sun light sensor. However this error occurs when the sun light sensor does not provide any date which happens in dark places. Hence, it is not a cause of concern. If the same test is done outside, the error will not show up.

Hence, you can troubleshoot the ACC unit without a scan tool(I tried using Launch EasyDiag, and the same sunload sensor error threw up) and any issues can be found out.
