re: Review: 2nd-gen Maruti Swift (2011 - 2017)

Hi,

I have been seeing a delay or hesitation in cranking in my Swift Petrol (push button start) since the last few days. This was after it was lying in my garage for about 15 days when I was out of station. It happens at random, most of the times at the start of the day, or sometimes when I turn off the engine even after proper heating up at traffic signals.

I showed it to MASS, the initial reaction was battery and so it was checked. But there was no issue with the battery and for precaution it was recharged for 12 hours. I got the car back today, but as soon as I reached office, parked and then tried to start it again, the hesitation was back.

Do anyone know what could be the reason?

Thanks

Answering my own question.

I enquired with Kalyani Motors Bangalore when I went for my Swift's Service. The guy who is handling the accessories department confirmed that the steering wheel controls will work this ICE. He quoted 26K after discounts including installation.

Re: Review: 2nd-gen Maruti Swift (2011 - 2017)

Since today I've been getting this issue in my 2014 Swift. Car starts as if the battery is weak. But all other lights/horn are behaving as normal. No battery weak symbol in the instrument console.
Along with the slow cranking, the rpm also fluctuates as recorded in the below video. Kindly use earphones.

Car was serviced this Monday only with the oils, fuel filter and spark plug change.

Could this issue be anything other than battery?
I might have to go on a highway trip on Monday.

Thanks.

Check the battery terminals once, if it is fine then replace the battery as soon as possible. Also check the battery voltage at 2.5k rpm to see if the alternator output is normal.
This is a classic symptom of a weak/dying battery.

Replaced the battery today with Amaron FLO. New battery with exchange set me back by 3600 rupees.

Re: Review: 2nd-gen Maruti Swift (2011 - 2017)

IRVM of my 2013 Swift got loose (viewing angle).

I adjust it and in 30 seconds, I start seeing my left right arm in it.

Can it be fixed or do I need to replace it?

The IRVM in Swift does not have any adjustment or tightening screws as such.
You can apply a bit of resin adhesive to ensure there is some friction in the ball joint near its neck.

Thanks.

I have a clip on mirror on the original IRVM. When I got rear parking sensors installed, I preferred clip-on mirror for display because of small IRVM of Swift. I got used it now.

So, I was thinking of buying a Lxi/Ldi IRVM without day/night option.

Right decision?

It does have a screw to make it loose or tight and it worked.

Problem fixed.

Re: Review: 2nd-gen Maruti Swift (2011 - 2017)

Hello members,

I have been facing juddering issue while moving off in 1st gear in my 2014 Swift. This happens when the engine is cold and gets normal after driving for 1-1.5 kms. This juddering issue has been there since 10k kms or so but is kind of random and happens on and off.

I got the clutch inspected during 20k service but the mechanic didn't find anything wrong with the clutch. There was also a squeaking noise on pressing and releasing the clutch pedal which was solved (don't know how!) and some excess free play was also corrected.

Now 5000 kms after the service, the issue seems to have cropped up again. Juddering has become more pronounced and regular now when the engine is cold. The clutch starts making that squeaking noise after driving 30-40 kms continuously.

I don't see any difference in the way the car picks up revs and speed. Service centre's standard reply on any problem associated with the clutch is that the clutch has packed up and needs to be changed. The car has done around 24k kms and is driven mostly in city. But we are not hard on the clutch at any point which makes me think that 24k kms is too early for the clutch to need a replacement.

Apart from that, the driver side seat belt refuses to retract back on its own. Can it be fixed or replaced under warranty?

If anyone has faced these issues, please give your thoughts. Thanks.

Hi guys,

Handbrake of my Swift Vdi 2013 is not so effective anymore. It starts moving if parked on a steep incline with handbrake fully pulled.

What could be the reason?

Re: Review: 2nd-gen Maruti Swift (2011 - 2017)

If anyone is struggling to find the source of the squeaks coming from dashboard, the cowl top (the black plastic part between windshield and bonnet) could be the reason.

The rubber inside this part has hardened, it continuously touches the windshield and on rough roads, it creates squeaking noise.

Solution: Remove this part and put generous amount of 3M double side tape running from left to right in the area that touches windshield and few more places (You will know when you remove the part and look at it).

I diagnosed it myself and got it done few days ago and the Swift is totally (well almost ) squeak free now.
