Suzuki Celerio Dashboard Warning Lights

The Celerio was first launched by Japanese car manufacturer Suzuki in 2014. Also known in Asia as the Suzuki Cultus (models VXR, VXL and AGS), this guide covers the dashboard warning lights for the Suzuki Celerio and all model variants such as the SZ2 and SZ3.

Dashboard information displays and warning symbol location may vary depending on your model of Celerio / Cultus, but the warning lights all have the same meaning. Locate the warning light on the dashboard diagram above and read the fault description and what action to take below.



SymbolFault Description / Action
Suzuki Celerio Brake Warning LightWarning Light Meaning:
The Suzuki Celerio brake warning light should come on briefly when the ignition is switched to on and shortly go out. The brake light also comes on when:
• The parking brake has been applied.
• Brake fluid levels are too low.
• Fault with brake system.
What to do:
If the brake warning light remains on, do the following:
1. Ensure the parking brake is properly released.
2. If it is, stop as soon as possible and check brake fluid levels. Add fluid if necessary. Note; Brake fluid levels naturally fall over time as brake pads wear out.
3. If brake fluid levels are sufficient and the parking brake is properly released, there is a brake system fault. On a quiet road, test the brakes by carefully stopping and starting. If the brakes appear safe, drive immediately to your nearest Suzuki workshop.
ABS and Brake Warning Light
If the ABS and brake warning light come on together, it indicates a fault with the rear brake force control (proportioning valve function) of the ABS system has failed. Immediately contact a Suzuki workshop.
Suzuki Celerio ABS Warning LightWarning Light Meaning:
The Suzuki Celerio ABS warning light comes on briefly as the ignition is switched to on and goes out shortly after. If the warning light stays on or comes on when you're driving, there's a fault with the ABS system. The Suzuki Celerio ABS (anti-lock braking system) is a safety system that prevent wheels from locking whilst under emergency braking. This helps the driver to steer.
What to do:
1. Carefully pull off the road.
2. Turn off the engine and switch the ignition to the 'lock' position and restart the engine. If the ABS warning light stays on, have it checked by a Suzuki workshop as soon as possible.
Note
ABS is a separate system to normal brakes and the failure of ABS does not affect normal braking. There is however an increased risk of locking wheels when braking.
Suzuki Celerio Check Engine Warning LightWarning Light Meaning:
The Suzuki Celerio malfunction indicator light (MIL) or 'check engine light' comes on as part of the computer controlled emissions system and indicates that this system requires servicing. This malfunction light comes on for two possible reasons:

2. A fault has been detected with the continuously variable transaxle system or the Auto Gear Shift system.
What to do:
In either situation, a good Suzuki workshop is required to diagnose and read fault codes to establish where the fault is. It is however possible to obtain your own diagnostic equipment for fault code reading.
Note
If the malfunction warning light begins flashing, have your vehicle checked quickly as there is potential for damage.
Suzuki Celerio Oil Pressure Warning LightWarning Light Meaning:
The oil light comes on when the ignition is switched on, but should go out shortly. The Suzuki Celerio red oil warning light is an indication of two issues:

What to do:
1. Do so safely but as a matter of urgency, pull off the road and turn off the engine.
2. Using the dipstick, check engine oil level and add oil if required.
3. If oil levels are normal and/or the oil light remains on, this indicates low oil pressure.
Important
Do not continue to drive. Severe engine damage will likely occur due to the engine lubrication system failing. Contact a Suzuki workshop and arrange for vehicle recovery.
