Okay then an update for the forum.

Dr Suzuki (AKA Dave) nailed it with the whole spare wheel deal. You simply couldn't make it up.

We placed the skinny space saver wheel on the back right drivers side and drove the car a little way and hey presto the ABS light extinguished.

So even though I have Suzuki the full run down of how it came to be they never thought it may have been something else. Even when the speed sensor didn't work.

So in effect the sensor wasn't required and neither was the so called $6000 ABS module.

Lesson here is to seek out a second opinion. And hopefully someone like Dave is watchful on the forums and willing to help.

Thanks Dave.

Can I assume this spare tyre is smaller diameter than the rest. Surely this is going to confuse the ABS . I don't know, but it's confusing me anyway .

Thank's for the update

Yes the factory tyre is 24 inch diameter and the space saver spare is 22.4 inch diameter.

I got another customer that posts on here and another forum that also just had an issue with suzuki trying to extract $1000 out of him for an immobilizer module when the error code clearly states that the immobilizer code is not registered in the ecm. The error occured after he started pulling relays and turning the ignition on , I explained to him that the ecu has lost the code , and also rhinoman agrees with me yet , suzuki still want to replace the immobilizer control module and "see if it fixes it".

So I have an FZ with a spacesaver (full size doesn't fit, but I may belt the lumps out of the boot panel and try to get a full size in there, as I live in the country and would prefer full size)
So what happens when I put the spacesaver on, the ecu sees a difference in speed between the wheels and starts to put the ABS on, then after a bit the ABS goes right out because it's a continual fault?
Also I want to change my tyres to 185/65/15 (24.5"), up from 175, so this slightly largely diameter will also make matters worse if a spacesaver is used? Hopefully is will close the error on my speedo as well.
So after putting the standard wheel back on, what is the procedure to reset the ABS?

Would not believe it ,but yes ,fitting the spare on is the only way i could get it to clear .
Cant re calibrate as fault code present for sensor , fault wont clear as you cant re calibrate with fault code present . Took a little while to get it to clear and stay out .
I found by refitting spare wheel ,short drive put out light ,stop vehicle clear code .
Turn off ignition ,refit normal wheel , ignition back on ,as no code exist ,now reset calibration on all sensors , then go into special functions and deactivate traction control ,light will confirm on dash system is deactivated ,dont switch of engine ,now drive for 10 mins . After switch off , code and light remained off ,For now
Simple job made unnecessarily complicated ,ggrrrrrr
