Keys
EXAMPLE
54489
Your vehicle comes with a pair of identical
keys. Keep the spare key in a safe place.
One key can open all of the locks on the
vehicle.
The key identification number is stamped
on a metal tag provided with the keys or on
the keys. Keep the tag (if equipped) in a
safe place. If you lose your keys, you will
need this number to have new keys made.
Write the number below for your future ref-
erence.
KEY NUMBER:
2-1
Immobilizer System
This system is designed to help prevent
vehicle theft by electronically disabling the
engine starting system.
The engine can be started only with your
vehicle's original immobilizer ignition key
which has an electronic identification code
programmed into it. The key communi-
cates the identification code to the vehicle
when the ignition switch is turned to the
“ON” position or the engine switch is
pressed to change the ignition mode to
“ON”. If you need to make spare keys, see
your SUZUKI dealer. The vehicle must be
programmed with the correct identification
code for the spare keys. A key made by an
ordinary locksmith will not work.
80JM122
If the immobilizer/keyless start system
warning light (1) blinks when the ignition
switch is in the “ON” position or the ignition
mode is “ON”, the engine will not start.
NOTE:
If this light blinks, perform the following
operations:
(For vehicles without keyless start system)
Turn the ignition switch to the “LOCK” posi-
tion, then turn it back to the “ON” position.
(For vehicles with keyless start system)
Change the ignition mode to “LOCK”
(OFF), then change back to “ON”.
If the light still blinks with the ignition switch
turned to the “ON” position or the ignition
mode changed to “ON”, there may be
something wrong with your key or with the
immobilizer system. Ask your SUZUKI
dealer to inspect the system.
NOTE:
* If you lose your immobilizer ignition key,
see your SUZUKI dealer as soon as
possible to have the lost one deacti-
vated, then have the new key made by
them.
* If you own other vehicles with immobi-
lizer keys, keep those keys away from
the ignition switch or the engine switch
when using your SUZUKI, or the engine
may not be started because they may
interfere with your SUZUKI’s immobilizer
system.
* If you attach any metal objects to the
immobilizer key, it may not start the
engine.
BEFORE DRIVING
NOTICE
The immobilizer key is a sensitive
electronic instrument. To avoid dam-
aging the immobilizer key:
* Do not expose it to impacts, mois-
ture or high temperature such as
on the dashboard under direct sun-
light.
* Keep the immobilizer key away
from magnetic objects.
This immobilizer system, model I68LO for
keyless entry model and TWK1A001 for
keyless engine start model are in compli-
ance with the essential requirements and
other provisions of the Directive 1999/5/EC.
Ignition Key Reminder (if equipped)

Seat Belts and Child Restraint
Systems
A WARNING
Wear Your Seat Belts at All Times.
A WARNING
An air bag supplements, or adds to,
the frontal crash protection offered
by seat belts. The driver and all pas-
sengers must be properly restrained
by wearing seat belts at all times,
whether or not an air bag is mounted
at their seating position, to minimize
the risk of severe injury or death in
the event of a crash.

cargo area of a vehicle. In the event
of an accident, there is a much
greater risk of injury for persons
who are not riding in a seat with
their seat belt securely fastened.
Seat belts should always be
adjusted as follows:
— the lap portion of the belt should
be worn low across the pelvis,
not across the waist.
— the shoulder straps should be
worn on the outside shoulder
only, and never under the arm.
— the shoulder straps should be
away from your face and neck,
but not falling off your shoulder.
(Continued)
* Seat belts should never be worn
with the straps twisted and should
be adjusted as tightly as is com-
fortable to provide the protection
for which they have been designed.
A slack belt will provide less pro-
tection than one which is snug.
* Make sure that each seat belt
buckle is inserted into the proper
buckle catch. It is possible to cross
the buckles in the rear seat.
(Continued)
2-27
* Pregnant women should use seat
belts, although specific recommen-
dations about driving should be
made by the woman's medical advi-
sor. Remember that the lap portion
of the belt should be worn as low
as possible across the hips, as
shown in the diagram.
* Do not wear your seat belt over
hard or breakable objects in your
pockets or on your clothing. If an
accident occurs, objects such as
glasses, pens, etc. under the seat
belt can cause injury.
(Continued)
BEFORE DRIVING
A WARNING
(Continued)
* Never use the same seat belt on
more than one occupant and never
attach a seat belt over an infant or
child being held on an occupant's
lap. Such seat belt use could cause
serious injury in the event of an
accident.
* Periodically inspect seat belt
assemblies for excessive wear and
damage. Seat belts should be
replaced if webbing becomes
frayed, contaminated, or damaged
in any way. It is essential to replace
the entire seat belt assembly after it
has been worn in a severe impact,
even if damage to the assembly is
not obvious.
* Children age 12 and under should
ride properly restrained in the rear
seat.
* Infants and small children should
never be transported unless they
are properly restrained. Restraint
systems for infants and small chil-
dren can be purchased locally and
should be used. Make sure that the
system you purchase meets appli-
cable safety standards. Read and
follow all the directions provided
by the manufacturer.
(Continued)
Á WARNING
(Continued)
* Avoid contamination of seat belt
webbing by polishes, oils, chemi-
cals, and particularly battery acid.
Cleaning may safely be carried out
using mild soap and water.
* For children, if the shoulder belt
irritates the neck or face, move the
child closer to the center of the
vehicle.
* All seatbacks should always be in
an upright position when driving,
or seat belt effectiveness may be
reduced. Seat belts are designed to
offer maximum protection when
seatbacks are in the upright posi-
tion.
Lap-Shoulder Belt
Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR)
The seat belt has an emergency locking
retractor (ELR), which is designed to lock
the seat belt only during a sudden stop or
impact. It also may lock if you pull the belt
across your body very quickly. If this hap-
pens, let the belt go back to unlock it, then
pull the belt across your body more slowly.

Driver’s Seat Belt Reminder
EXAMPLE
68LMT0201
When the driver doesn’t buckle his or her
seat belt, the driver's seat belt reminder
light in the instrument cluster will come on
or blink and a buzzer will sound as a
reminder to the driver to buckle his or her
seat belt. For more details, refer to the
explanation below.
If the driver's seat belt remains unbuckled
when the ignition switch is turned to the
“ON” position or the engine switch is
pressed to change the ignition mode to
“ON”. The reminder works as follows:
1) The driver's seat belt reminder light will
come on.
2) After the vehicle's speed has reached
about 15 km/h, the driver's seat belt
reminder light will blink and a buzzer
will sound for about 95 seconds.
3) After step 2) has finished, the reminder
light will remain on until the driver's seat
belt is buckled.
If the driver has buckled his or her seat belt
and later unbuckles the seat belt, the
reminder system will be activated from
step 1) or step 2) according to the vehicle's
speed. When the vehicle's speed is below
about 15 km/h, the reminder will start from
step 1). When the vehicle's speed is above
about 15 km/h, the reminder will start from
step 2).
The reminder will be automatically can-
celed when the driver's seat belt is buckled
or the ignition switch is turned off, or the
engine switch is pressed to change the
ignition mode to “LOCK” (OFF).
A WARNING
It is absolutely essential that the
driver and passengers wear their seat
belts at all times. Persons who are
not wearing seat belts have a much
greater risk of injury if an accident
occurs. Make a regular habit of buck-
ling your seat belt before putting the
key in the ignition or pressing the
engine switch.
2-30
BEFORE DRIVING
Front passenger's seat belt
reminder
The front passenger's seat belt reminder
Will activate only when there is a passen-
ger sitting in the front seat. In some situa-
tions, however, such as when you place
heavy objects in the front seat, the seat
belt reminder can be activated as if there
were a passenger present. The front pas-
senger's seat belt reminder works in the
same manner as the driver's seat belt
reminder, except that it is not activated
until 10 seconds after the ignition mode is
changed to “ON” by pressing the engine
switch.

anchor up. To downward, slide the anchor
down while pulling the lock knob out. After
adjustment, make sure that the anchor is
securely locked.
A WARNING
Be sure that the shoulder belt is posi-
tioned on the center of the outside
shoulder. The belt should be away
from your face and neck, but not fall-
ing off your shoulder. Misadjustment
of the belt could reduce the effective-
ness of the safety belt in a crash.
68LM254
NOTICE
When you move a seatback, make
sure the belt webbing is hooked in
the seat belt hangers so the seat
belts are not caught by the seatback,
seat hinge, or seat latch. This helps
prevent damage to the belt system.
Seat Belt Inspection
EXAMPLE
65D2095
Periodically inspect the seat belts to make
sure they work properly and are not dam-
aged. Check the webbing, buckles, latch
plates, retractors, anchorages, and guide
loops. Replace any seat belts which do not
work properly or are damaged.
A WARNING
Be sure to inspect all seat belt
assemblies after any collision. Any
seat belt assembly which was in use
during a collision (other than a very
minor one) should be replaced, even
if damage to the assembly is not
obvious. Any seat belt assembly
which was not in use during a colli-
sion should be replaced if it does not
function properly, it is damaged in
any way or the seat belt pretension-
ers were activated (that is, if the front
air bags were activated).

SUZUKI highly recommends that you use
a child restraint system to restrain infants
and small children. Many different types of
child restraint systems are available; make
sure that the restraint system you select
meets applicable safety standards.
All child restraint systems are designed to
be secured in vehicle seats by either seat
belts (lap belts or the lap portion of lap-
shoulder belts) or by special rigid lower
anchor bars built into the seat. Whenever
possible, SUZUKI! recommends that child
restraint systems be installed on the rear
seat. According to accident statistics, chil-
dren are safer when properly restrained in
rear seating positions than in front seating
positions.
(For EU Countries)
When purchasing a child restraint and
install it to your SUZUKI, refer to the infor-
mation about suitability for child restrains
shown in “Child Restraint System for EU
Countries” in this section.
NOTE:
Observe any statutory regulation about
child restraints.
650607
When using child restraint system on
the front passenger's seat, the front
passenger’s air bag must be deacti-
vated; otherwise deployment of the
front passenger’s air bag could result
in the death or serious injury of the
child.
A WARNING
If you install a child restraint system
in the rear seat, slide the front seat
for enough forward so that the child’s
feet do not contact the front seat-
back. This will help avoid injury to
the child in the event of an accident.
BEFORE DRIVING
A WARNING
Children could be endangered in a
crash if their child restraints are not
properly secured in the vehicle.
When installing a child restraint sys-
tem, be sure to follow the instruc-
tions below. Be sure to secure the
child in the restraint system accord-
ing to the manufacturer’s instruc-
tions.

Seat Belt Pretensioner System
63.269
À WARNING
This section of the owner's manual
describes your SUZUKI's SEAT BELT
PRETENSIONER SYSTEM. Please
read and follow ALL these instruc-
tions carefully to minimize your risk
of severe injury or death.
To determine if your vehicle is equipped
with a seat belt pretensioner system at the
front seating positions, check the label on
the front seat belt at the bottom part. If the
letters “p” and/or “PRE” appear as illus-
trated, your vehicle is equipped with the
seat belt pretensioner system. You can use
the pretensioner seat belts in the same
manner as ordinary seat belts.
2-42
BEFORE DRIVING
Read this section and the “Supplemental
Restraint System (air bags)” section to
learn more about the pretensioner system.
The seat belt pretensioner system works
with the SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT
SYSTEM (Air Bags). The crash sensors
and the electronic controller of the air bag
system also control the seat belt preten-
sioners. The pretensioners are triggered
only when there is a frontal or side crash
severe enough to trigger the air bags and
the seat belts are fastened. For precau-
tions and general information including
servicing the pretensioner system, refer to
the “Supplemental Restraint System (air
bags)’ section in addition to this “Seat Belt
Pretensioner System” section, and follow
all those precautions.
The pretensioner is located in each front
seat belt retractor. The pretensioner tight-
ens the seat belt so the belt fits the occu-
pants body more snugly in the event of a
frontal or side crash. The retractors will
remain locked after the pretensioners are
activated. Upon activation, some noise will
occur and some smoke may be released.
These conditions are not harmful and do
not indicate a fire in the vehicle.
2-43
The driver and all passengers must be
properly restrained by wearing seat belts
at all times, whether or not a pretensioner
is equipped at their seating position, to
minimize the risk of severe injury or death
in the event of a crash.
Sit fully back in the seat; sit up straight; do
not lean forward or sideways. Adjust the
belt so the lap portion of the belt is worn
low across the pelvis, not across the waist.
Please refer to the “Seat Adjustment” sec-
tion and the instructions and precautions
about the seat belts in this “Seat Belts and
Child Restraint Systems” section for details
on proper seat and seat belt adjustments.
Please note that the pretensioners along
with the air bags will activate only in severe
frontal os side collisions. They are not
designed to activate in rear impacts, roll-
overs, or minor frontal collisions. The pre-
tensioners can be activated only once. If
the pretensioners are activated (that is, if
the air bags are activated), have the pre-
tensioner system serviced by an autho-
rized SUZUKI dealer as soon as possible.
If the “AIR BAG” light on the instrument
cluster does not blink or come on briefly
when the ignition switch is turned to the
“ON” position or the engine switch is
pressed to change the ignition mode to
“ON”, stays on for more than 10 seconds,
or comes on while driving, the pretensioner
system or the air bag system may not work
properly. Have both systems inspected by
an authorized SUZUKI dealer as soon as
possible.
Service on or around the pretensioner sys-
tem components or wiring must be per-
formed only by an authorized SUZUKI
dealer who is specially trained. Improper
service could result in unintended activa-
tion of pretensioners or could render the
pretensioner inoperative. Either of these
two conditions may result in personal
injury.
To prevent damage or unintended activa-
tion of the pretensioners, be sure the bat-
tery is disconnected and the ignition switch
has been in the “LOCK” position or the
ignition mode has been “LOCK” (OFF) for
at least 90 seconds before performing any
electrical service work on your SUZUKI.
Do not touch pretensioner system compo-
nents or wiring. The wires are wrapped
with yellow tape or yellow tubing, and the
couplers are yellow. When scrapping your
SUZUKI, ask your SUZUKI dealer, body
repair shop, or scrap yard for assistance.

Front air bags are not designed to inflate in
rear impacts, side impacts, rollovers or
minor frontal collisions, since they would
offer no protection in those types of acci-
dents. Remember, since an air bag
deploys only one time during an accident,
seat belts are needed to restrain occu-
pants from further movements during the
accident.
Therefore, an air bag is NOT a substitute
for seat belts. To maximize your protection,
ALWAYS WEAR YOUR SEAT BELTS. Be
aware that no system can prevent all pos-
sible injuries that may occur in an accident.
A WARNING
An air bag supplements, or adds to,
the crash protection offered by seat
belts. The driver and all passengers

since they would offer no protection in
those types of accidents. Only the side air
bag and side curtain air bag on the side of
the vehicle that is struck will inflate. How-
ever, in a frontal angle collision, the side air
bags and side curtain air bags may inflate.
Remember, since an air bag deploys only
one time during an accident, seat belts are
needed to restrain occupants from further
movements during the accident.
Therefore, an air bag is NOT a substitute
for seat belts. To maximize your protection,
ALWAYS WEAR YOUR SEAT BELTS. Be
aware that no system can prevent all pos-
sible injuries that may occur in an accident.
Á WARNING
An air bag supplements, or adds to,
the crash protection offered by seat

2-49
How the System Works
In a frontal collision, the crash sensors will
detect rapid deceleration, and if the con-
troller judges that the deceleration repre-
sents a severe frontal crash, the controller
Will trigger the inflators. If your vehicle is
equipped with side air bags and side cur-
tain air bags, crash sensors will detect a
side collision, and if the controller judges
that the side collision is severe enough, it
will trigger the side air bag and side curtain
air bag inflators. The inflators inflate the
appropriate air bags with nitrogen or argon
gas. The inflated air bags provide a cush-
ion for your head (front air bags and side
curtain air bags only) and upper body. The
air bag inflates and deflates so quickly that
you may not even realize that it has acti-
vated. The air bag will neither hinder your
view nor make it harder to exit the vehicle.
Air bags must inflate quickly and forcefully
in order to reduce the chance of serious or
fatal injuries. However, an unavoidable
consequence of the quick inflation is that
the air bag may irritate bare skin, such as
the facial area against a front air bag. Also,
upon inflation, a loud noise will occur and
some powder and smoke will be released.
These conditions are not harmful and do
not indicate a fire in the vehicle. Be aware,
however, that some air bag components
may be hot for a while after inflation.
A seat belt helps keep you in the proper
position for maximum protection when an
air bag inflates. Adjust your seat as far
back as possible while still maintaining
control of the vehicle. Sit fully back in your
seat; sit- up straight; do not lean over the
steering wheel or dashboard. Front occu-
pants should not lean on or sleep against
the door. Please refer to the “Seat Adjust-
ment” section and the “Seat Belts and
Child Restraint Systems” section in the
“BEFORE DRIVING” section for details on
proper seat and seat belt adjustments.
BEFORE DRIVING
65D610
54G582
A WARNING
* The driver should not lean over the
steering wheel. The front passen-
ger should not rest his or her body
against the dashboard, or other-
wise get too close to the dash-
board. For vehicles with side air
bags and side curtain air bag,
occupants should not lean on or
sleep against the door. In these sit-
uations, the out-of-position occu-
pant would be too close to an
inflating air bag, and may suffer
severe injury.
* Do not attach any objects to, or
place any objects over, the steering
wheel or dashboard. Do not place
any objects between the air bag
and the driver or front passenger.
These objects may interfere with air
bag operation or may be propelled
by the air bag in the event of a
crash. Either of these conditions
may cause severe injury.
(Continued)
(Continued)
* For vehicles with side air bags, do
not place seat covers on the front
seats, because seat covers could
restrict the air bag’s inflation. Also,
do not place any cup holders on
the door, as the cup holder could
be propelled by the air bag in the
event of a crash. Either of these
conditions may cause severe
injury.
Note that even though your vehicle may be
moderately damaged in a collision, the col-
lision may not have been severe enough to
trigger the front, side, or side curtain air
bags to inflate. If your vehicle sustains
ANY front-end or side damage, have the
air bag system inspected by an authorized
SUZUKI dealer to ensure it is in proper
working order.
Your vehicle is equipped with a diagnostic
module which records information about
the air bag system if the air bags deploy in
a crash. The module records information
about overall system status, which sensors
activated the deployment.
Servicing the air bag system
If the air bags inflate, have the air bags
and related components replaced by an
authorized SUZUKI dealer as soon as pos-
sible.
2-50
BEFORE DRIVING
If your vehicle ever gets in deep water and
the driver's floor is submerged, the air bag
controller could be damaged. If it does,
have the air bag system inspected by the
SUZUKI dealer as soon as possible.
Special procedures are required for servic-
ing or replacing an air bag. For that rea-
son, only an authorized SUZUKI dealer
should be allowed to service or replace
your air bags. Please remind anyone who
services your SUZUKI that it has air bags.
Service on or around air bag components
or wiring must be performed only by an
authorized SUZUKI dealer. Improper ser-
vice could result in unintended air bag
deployment or could render the air bag
inoperative. Either of these two conditions
may result in severe injury.
To prevent damage or unintended inflation
of the air bag system, be sure the battery
is disconnected and the ignition switch has
been in the “LOCK” position or the ignition
mode has been “LOCK” (OFF) for at least
90 seconds before performing any electri-
cal service work on your SUZUKI. Do not
touch air bag system components or wires.
The wires are wrapped with yellow tape or
yellow tubing, and the couplers are yellow
for easy identification.
Scrapping a vehicle that has an uninflated
air bag can be hazardous. Ask your dealer,
body repair shop or scrap yard for help
with disposal.

When you activate or deactivate the front
passenger's air bag, make sure whether
the air bag deactivation indicator is off or
on before starting the engine.
Side air bags, side curtain air bags and
seat belt pretensioners are not connected
to the air bag deactivation system. Even if
the front passenger’s air bag is deacti-
vated, side air bags, side curtain air bags
and seat belt pretensioners are still acti-
vated.
65D607
A WARNING
When using child restraint system on
the front passenger’s seat, the front
passenger’s air bag must be deacti-
vated; otherwise deployment of the

BRAKE
Three different types of operations exist
depending on the vehicle's specification.
1) The light comes on briefly when the
ignition switch is turned to the “ON”
position or the engine switch is pressed
to change the ignition mode to “ON”.
2) The light comes on when the parking
brake is engaged with the ignition
switch in the “ON” position or the igni-
tion mode “ON”.
3) The light comes on when under either
or both of above two conditions.
The light also comes on when the fluid in
the brake fluid reservoir falls below the
specified level.
The light should go out after starting the
engine and fully releasing the parking
brake, if the fluid level in the brake fiuid
reservoir is adequate.
The light also comes on together with the
ABS warning light when the rear brake
force control function {proportioning valve
function) of the ABS system fails.
2-55
if the brake system warning light comes on
while you are driving the vehicle, it may
mean that there is something wrong with
the vehicle's brake system. If this happens,
you should:
1) Pull off the road and stop carefully.
A WARNING
Remember that stopping distance
may be longer, you may have to push
harder on the pedal, and the pedal
may go down farther than normal.
2) Test the brakes by carefully starting and
stopping on the shoulder of the road.
3) If you determine that it is safe, drive
cautiously at low speed to the nearest
dealer for repairs,
or
4) Have the vehicle towed to the nearest
dealer for repairs.
Á WARNING
If any of the following conditions
occur, you should immediately ask
your SUZUKI dealer to inspect the
brake system.
* If the brake system warning light
does not go out after the engine
has been started and the parking
brake has been fully released.
* If the brake system warning light
does not come on when the igni-
tion switch is turned to the “ON”
position or the engine switch is
pressed to change the ignition
mode to “ON”.
* If the brake system warning light
comes on at any time during vehi-
cle operation.
NOTE:
Because the brake system is self-adjust-
ing, the fluid level will drop as the brake
pads become worn. Replenishing the
brake fluid reservoir is considered normal
periodic maintenance.
BEFORE DRIVING
Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)
Warning Light
e)
When the ignition switch is turned to the
“ON” position or the engine switch is
pressed to change the ignition mode to
“ON”, the light comes on briefly so you can
check that the light is working.
If the light stays on, or comes on when
driving, there may be something wrong
with the ABS.
If this happens:
1) Pull off the road and stop carefully.
2) Turn the ignition switch to “LOCK” or
change the ignition mode to “LOCK”
(OFF) by pressing the engine switch
and then start the engine again.
If the warning light comes on briefly then
turns off, the system is normal. If the warn-
ing light still stays on, the system will be
something wrong.
If the light and the brake system warning
light stay on, or come on simultaneously
when driving, your ABS system is
equipped with the rear brake force control
function (proportioning valve function) and
there may be something wrong with both
the rear brake force control function and
anti-lock function of the ABS system.
If one of these happens, have the system
inspected by your SUZUKI dealer.
If the ABS becomes inoperative, the brake
system will function as an ordinary brake
system that does not have this ABS sys-
tem.
