Do a little troubleshooting to keep the AC system in your Suzuki Vitara running smoothly this summer. Any problems that might arise are relatively simple to diagnose, whether it is an issue with the magnetic clutch or a leaky hose. Before taking your Vitara in to an AC mechanic for what could turn out to be an expensive service, there are a few troubleshooting steps you can run through on your own.
Tools Used: Tools, AC compression test gauge
Troubleshoot Air Conditioning
Check the fuse box for any blown fuses. The fuse box for the Suzuki Vitara is usually under the dash on the driver’s side, but check with your owner’s manual for the particular year of your Vitara. Read the schematic on the inside cover of the fuse box cover to locate the fuse corresponding to the air conditioning system. If the metal fuse is broken, replace it with another of the same amperage rating.
