Component

EXTERIOR LIGHTING:HEADLIGHTS

Manufacturer

AMERICAN SUZUKI MOTOR CORP.

NHTSA Campaign ID12V397000
SummarySuzuki is recalling certain model year 2004-2006 Forenza and model year 2005-2006 Reno vehicles manufactured from September 23, 2003, through March 7, 2006. Increased resistance due to poor contact between the terminals of certain wires can generate heat that can melt the splice pack used to connect the power circuit wires for the headlamps. This can result in intermittent or total loss of low/high beam headlamp function.
ConsequenceIf the headlamps fail to function, this will lead to reduced driver visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.
RemedySuzuki will notify owners, and Suzuki dealers will reconnect the affected wires with two heat-shrink crimps, free of charge. The safety recall began on September 25, 2012. Owners may contact Suzuki at 1-877-697-8985.
