Suzuki Motor Corporation is recalling more than 102,000 vehicles due to headlamp defects. In conjunction with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 2004 through 2006 Forenzas and 2005 through 2006 Renos will be recalled.
The recall is the result of poor contact between wire terminals connected to the headlamps. The defect can generate heat that may melt the splice pack which connects the power circuit wire for the headlamps. The melting of the splice pack could cause the low beam and/or high beam functions of the headlights to intermittently or completely fail.
Suzuki will be notifying owners of the recall and will repair the problem free of charge. Suzuki dealers will reconnect the affected wires with heat-sink crimps. For more information concerning the recall, consumers can contact Suzuki at (714) 996-7040 or the NHTSA’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at (888) 327-4236. The NHTSA recall campaign number is 12V397000.
The same models were recalled in 2007 for the loss of daytime lights and low beams, even though the company said they made a design change in 2006 to solve the problem of headlight malfunction.
