It changes the shift pattern of the transmission. You want to have this switch off at all times unless you are hauling some weight (i.e. a trailer). If you switch it on you will notice the transmission will delay the shift to ensure there is enough power to compensate for the added weight.

Why does 1993 Suzuki sidekick hesitates?

It does not have much power, a small 1.6 liter engine that only puts out 80 horsepower. The 4-door models have 4-speeds but the 2-doors only have 3-speeds. This may be why it "hesitates" or takes a bit to accelerate.

With the ignition switch off, turn the power door switch in the overhead console off, then open the glove box and find the fuse box. Remove the fuse labelled "tail" for 30 seconds then reinstall it. Then turn the switch for the power door on the overhead console back on and wait 10 more seconds. Then manually open the door all the way open (it may start working already). Finally close and latch the door. It should now operate normally.
