2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara Abs and Transmission light

Postby makiylahb » June 9th, 2019, 8:58 pm

While driving the transmission light comes on

Then all guages went to zero, temperature and gas gauge went to cold and E as if the vehicle was turned off and the abs and brake light came on.

What's happening to my GV?

On the surface, it sounds like a ground-fault on the instrument panel power circuit.

This would be good if thats just the case ... I did a scan and I am getting body controle module as an error. What is that?

The BCM provides control logic for many vehicle body systems like headlamp warning, IP indication lights, dome light dimming, etc.

You could have a ground fault on a circuit to the IP, a bad connection between the IP and BCM, a blown fuse or faulty B+ connection, a failed BCM, etc.

Check the connectors to the BCM first, especially if you have been working on the IP or radio wire harnesses.

The body control module (BCM) is behind the radio, on the instrument panel (IP) structure.Image

I couldn't say but I could guess in the $1000 range.

I would expect that the failure is a bad wire terminal, a broken wire, a loose connector, etc. The parts cost is likely small but in my experience they are unfortunately the most difficult failures to identify.
