Asked by Susan
I have a 2018 Suzuki Ignis bought from a dealership in November 2019 with 28kms on the clock. It has now clocked 8890kms. In March this year and again in May a red warning signal appeared on the dash coupled with an audible alarm. The warning appeared as a red rectangle with a capital D in the middle. The dealership claimed it was ABS related and replaced the actuator. They could not replicate the fault the second time and said, therefore, there is no fault and gave no further explanation. I complained to Suzuki and it is again at the dealership. However, this time Suzuki says it has never seen the warning signal and has no idea what it means and could I take a photo when it occurs: I pointed out this would be against the law in a moving car! Has anyone else heard or seen this fault?

I’ve trawled lists of Suzuki warning lights and their meanings, but I can’t find one that approximates a red D in a rectangle. The closest I could get to was a warning that the rear fog-light was on (the lamp signal can look vaguely like a `D’) but to have an audible alarm as well is very strange.
An ABS fault-light usually (in a Suzuki) features the letter A, B and S, so I’m not sure how the dealership arrived at the conclusion that the ABS system was at fault. Have you had the car electronically scanned? That can often throw light on what’s going wrong, even on an intermittent basis.
