Did you replace the alternator or the 'voltage regultor'.
I might go to a car wreckers / junk yard to see if i can find an old vitara with a good alternator there.
I still have the flashing lights - the official suzuki repair shop couldnt figure it out, they said it could be the battery - or the nodes on the battery... But replaced both and still messed up lights.
Thank you very much for your reply, really appreciate help.

I have a 2009 GV, with less than 9000 miles which 1500 of them are towed mileage towed behind my home home. I have have towed to two different dealer to find out why my battery is dead after arrive at next stop. Have to get a jump start just to get out of tow mode, fallow and the instruction in the book but doesn't seem to make any difference. Also the smell of burnt wiring or rubber coming near the callick convertor. Any suggestion

We would need more details. That burn smell, is it after you drove it, after you towed it ? GVs have an anti-rust coating that smell like burnt oil for a few 1000k Kms. That dead battery, is it happenning only after you towed it ? does it happen also when resting a couple of days without moving ?
