I have a Sprinter since 2005. Its been more than 1 year it started giving me this issue. But before a month ago, the problem was not persistent, although it used to happen every 6 or 8 months.. The problem is, it is running good, but suddenly loses current and does not start. Then you have to open the battery side taapa, move the cables, there is a black coloured matchbox sized device, open it up, and then close, and then start. And there she goes, current is back. Before this month, once done this exercise, bike used to run for 4 or 6 or 8 months, but now its frequently giving issue. What is wrong? Is there any device to be changed? One of the electricians told me its a "Rectifier" (that black match box sized device) that needs to be changed. But i want to make sure before i replace something. Please advise.
And can i find the device that needs to be changed easily at Suzuki showroom?
