What are the defects?

Some regulator/rectifier assemblies were produced with insufficient adhesion between the power module and the rectifier case. Due to the insufficient adhesion, heat generated from the power module can cause it to lift from the case. This condition can cause excessive heat in the module which can result in insufficient charge being provided to the battery.

What are the hazards?

The battery may discharge and can lead to the engine stalling or a non-start condition.

What should consumers do?

Suzuki will write to owners of affected vehicles.

Owners are advised to contact their authorised Suzuki dealership for inspection and replacement of the regulator/rectifier with a modified unit.

For any concerns or queries please contact Suzuki Customer Care line on 03 9931 5500.
