sounds like your passlock sensor on the ignition barrel is faulty. you will have to go to the dealer to have it replaced because of the programming after replacement.

Sounds like the cam positioning sensor. I have a 2002 GMC 2500HD 8.1L and this happened to me. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: driving and car died and now wont start it has power and turns over just wont start

You need to isolate the problem. If it starts when you spray carb cleaner into the throttle body while cranking then problem is in fuel system.(pump, pump relay, filter or fuse) If not, then look into ignition system. Use any manual to get specific testing instructions and do not buy anything till you verify by testing that you really need that part or it can get unnecessarily expensive.
If you need more info on anything, just ask, but at the point you are at, careful testing will tell you far more than anyone here can tell you.

SOURCE: fuelpump problems in my 2003 oldsmobile alero

I was reading another comment about Aleros and thought you might try this. You have an antitheft system that kills the fuel pump. The directions are in your owners manual. What I remember is to turn on the ignition and leave it on for 10 minutes. Now whether you turn the car to start at this point or go back to "off" and then start is the second way. I would try turning the key to start without shutting it off (from the 10 minute cycle). This is suppose to reset the antitheft and you should observe whether the antitheft light is blinking.

If this works for you then you have problems in the antitheft circuit. This would include keys, keyswitch reader, connecting wires and antitheft box. Best of Luck

SOURCE: wont start security light stays on

Body Control Module (BCM) on both counts. Find a shop in your town that specializes in electrical systems to test it. Beware, these can be intermittent problems, so make sure they keep it until the car does what you have observed. Expect to spend about $450 for the replacment. Dealers quoted me between $700 and $1,100 for the same repair. By the way, a new BCM will probably only last you about 12 months.

Ignition Control Module is bad. When the dielectric grease used to mount them gets hard,they overheat and cause you to shut down. Really easy to install(about 10 mins.). I had this happen on two Fords. If you let the engine sit and cool down,they will fire up and run till that part gets hot,then itll die on ya. Auto zone sells this part for around 35 bucks.

Engine dies when i turn off the a/c


it sounds like a bad earth, the only way round this is to test all the earths on the ecu by back probing them, run with air con off then on, a bad earth will have 0.5v or higher a good earth will be 0.2 or o volts.

4 wheel drive wont engage on 2oo1 suzuki XL7


Probably failed free axle air pump. This mounts below radiator on RH side of vehicle. Should be able to hear it buzz for a few seconds if you get down there and have someone else turn on the key and try to engage 4WD lever. No buzz-no work.

Our 2001 XL7 has gone through 2 of these in 150,000 mi. The unit is mounted low where it gets tire splash. Salt from road corrodes the wiring and it fails.

About 10 minutes to R and R.

Can get replacement through Southwest Suzuki on the Web for about $225.

Hope this helps.
