Hello, I'm Chris. Thanks for seeking us for help.
I am sorry for the delay in getting a response to you. Sometimes we get alot of customers and just can not keep up. Sometimes you just have to wait for the correct tech to login.
Do you even still need help. Sometimes customers seek help elsewhere or figure it out on their own before we get to each and everyone.
I am sure I can help a lot or a little at least something if you give me a chance and work with me. I am going to get an answer to you regardless if you reply or not sooner or later.
If your concern is urgent reply and let me know and if you have anything more you think will help me, to help you, let me know. I work on here normally 3pm-3am central.
Thanks Chris

Chris I did not get a answer to the flashing hold light on the Suzuki Verona dash board thanks Harold.

There should be stored trouble codes with this light on. Without the codes, its any bodies guess. The most common reason I find is a engine coolant temp sensor reading issue.
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
Thanks Chris

Hi Chris the codes are po171 and po174 thanks Harold.

Thanks Harold
These are lean codes. That means the computer knows how much oxygen is coming into the engine from the MAF sensor and how much is being used in the combustion chamber. Then the O2 sensors monitor how much is left over. Both sides of the engine are seeing to much oxygen, meaning there is a possible vacuum leak, incorrect reading or dirty MAF sensor, or low fuel pressure. Can you check those.
