Question about 2007 Suzuki XL-7
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."
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.
