WARNING:
WARNING:
You should take extreme care when working on your vehicle to prevent accidental injury. Here are a few precautions that you should be especially careful to observe:
• 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 for at least 90 seconds before performing any electrical 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.

• Do not leave the engine running in garages or other confined areas.

• When the engine is running, keep hands, clothing, tools and other objects away from the moving fan and drive belt.

• When it is necessary to do service work with the engine running, make sure that the parking brake is set fully and the transaxle is in Neutral (for manual transaxle vehicles) or Park (for automatic transaxle vehicles).

• Do not touch ignition wires or other ignition system parts when starting the engine or when the engine is running, or you could receive an electric shock.

• Be careful not to touch a hot engine, exhaust manifold and pipes, muffler, radiator and water hoses.

• Do not allow smoking, sparks or flames around gasoline or the battery.

Flammable fumes are present.

• Do not get under your vehicle if it is supported only with the portable jack provided in your vehicle.

• Be careful not to cause accidental short circuits between the positive and negative battery terminals.

• Keep used oil, engine coolant and other fluids away from children and pets. Dispose of used fluids properly; never pour them on the
ground, into sewers, etc.

NOTICE (for U.S.A.) Maintenance, replacement or repair of the emission control devices and systems may be performed by any automobile repair establishment or individual using any part which has been certified under the provisions in the Clean Air Act sec. 207. (a) (2).
