Several possibilities. Are you sure the battery is fully charged? Good clean tight connections at battery? Have you tried jumper cables? If none of this helps, you may have a bad solenoid or starter. Where does the buzzing come from?

Testimonial: "we just replace the battery about a month ago and have had no issues with the car starting since then. the last 2 times i tried to start the car before the final time it started dragging."

    also, i believe what is happening is the solenoid isn't engaging??? the key will turn and the starter will turn, which is where the buzzing is coming from.

None of that is useful, in the real world , all that matters is NOW.
we avoid guessing or making assumptions, totally, we use a thing called a voltmeter (DMM), and let the truth dictate my actions.
so if your new battery reads 12.1 volts then it's drained out.
Discharged ! did you make the battery terminals clean?>????
new or old, whateva. its discharged.

that can happen for 2 reasons (and battery bad)
1: alternators system is failing (i never sad its bad got that.)?
2: there is a phantom drain.

buy a 10 buck meter at walmart and lets find it. ($20 one is better)
it's not hard , ask.

now on the other hand, ( DMM shows 12.6vdc reseted)
then the battery is charged.
and the starting system is bad (note i did not say bad starter) !
i said SYSTEM.
things work together in harmony, lots of parts.

so if the battery is good and charged,
then we hot wire the battery at solenoid.
it fails to crank, the starter is bad. wires to it bad.
if hot wring works, then the KEY line is dead.
did you wiggle the shifter.? to make the PRNDL switch wakeup/?
ask , how to fix the KEY line, if hot wiring works.

    Fossil's answer gives good advice for someone with electrical troubleshooting skills, however I was trying to eliminate the simple things first. If the buzzing is really the whirr of the starter motor spinning but not engaging to turn the engine, the easy fix is to replace the starter, however, first make sure the battery is fully charged and has good connections. Trying jumper cables is an easy way to see if a little extra juice makes a difference. If that works and the main battery is good and all connections are good, you may still have to replace the starter as the current one may only work when fed the extra amps from the jumpers. If you do have the skills to trace down problems with a voltmeter, you may also want to own a inductive current meter which will show if your starter is drawing excessive amperage, and can show alternator output.

    x2 , it sa now crank, and and as always, you do the AAA way, called jumper cables to a running car. or barrow a good charged battery from the other car and try that. 1st things first. and even before that, did you wiggle the key while cranking (free) and the shifter in park then neutral, (yes, neutral works) and does that work, zero dollars there... free. just 2 hands.

    also hitting the side of the starter can wake it up. that too , is 100% free,

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.
