If the High Engine Coolant Temperature Warning Light (if equipped) on instrument panel comes ON or the Temperature Gauge needle (if equipped) on instrument panel reaches near “H” mark then:

  • Turn off the air conditioner, if equipped.
  • Take the vehicle to a safe place and park.
  • Let the engine run at normal idle speed for a few minutes until the high engine coolant temperature light goes OFF (OR).
  • The indicator returns to the normal range, between the H and the C mark.
  • If you see or hear steam escaping from under the bonnet, immediately park the vehicle in a safe place and switch off the engine immediately. Do not open the bonnet until hissing sound or steam emission has stopped. Get in touch with nearest Maruti Suzuki service centre immediately.
  • Once the steam is no longer heard or visible, open the bonnet and check the water pump belt for any slippage or damage.
  • Check the coolant level in the reservoir. If it is below the low mark, check for leakage from the hose, water pump or radiator. If any leaks are located, do not start the engine till the time the leakage has been rectified.
  • If you do not find any leakage then slowly add coolant to the reservoir. Never add coolant to the radiator.
  • It is dangerous to remove the radiator cap when the temperature is high. It may cause serious burn injuries.
  • Consult your authorised service workshop for further advice.
