Question about 2006 Suzuki XL-7

2 Answers

I have a 2006 Suzuki XL-7 with a little less than 50K miles. Tonight,I started the car, and the 2 wheel / 4wheel indicator was flashing; I could not get the unit out of 4 wheel drive, shut off the transmission "power" option, the battery light, ABS kight, Brake light and about everything else was on in the dash. I couldn't use my headlights because the car thought the brake was on. When I put the vehicle in drive, it LEAPED forward. The engine was revving very high. I couldn't drive it so I had it towed home. Is this an electrical problem? Do I just change the battery? What are your suggestions?

If its still under manufacturer warranty, have it looked at right away.

Otherwise, before you do anything, you need to access your vehicle's computer for any diagnostic trouble codes (your computer retains all data relating to electrical & sensor faults).

If you are technically inclined, I can show you how...but you will need to locate either of these data connectors:

OBDII connector - under dash, above driver or passenger knee

I have a 2006 Suzuki XL-7 with a little less than - f73d6d6.gif

Data connector # 30 - located in the fuse box under hood, near the strut tower.


Let me know if you wish to progress further...

Suzuki xl 7 2006 neutral switch

this is the PRNDL switch , prindle,
sure neutral works, you never started in neutral so it never wore out
and is the first test. to this page.
he PRNDL switch is bad, the park contacts are burned up, they all do that , when old, all.
you have only 2 choices, a new switch (best) or take yours off
dismantle it, (done many) and clean it and see if the contacts inside
can be recovered. some can , some cant.,
wear and damage have no limits.
only looking finds the truth in every case, in tests.

btw , suzuki will charge you 2 times what its worth to buy one.
so get one from NAPA, or other find stores. (not the zone)

Does a 2006 Toyota 4Runner Sport need a 2 or 4 Wheel Alignment

There is nothing to adjust on the rear because it is a solid axle, most dealers and alignment shops do a 4wheel alignment anyway and they don't charge less for a two wheel alignment. A 4wheel alignment also reveals any possible bent suspension components or frame misalignment..

Some 2001-2002 models had serious problem from factory and typically fail within the first 50K-75K miles (but don't bother calling, Suzuki will not do anything about it). The Nippon-Denso compressors used those years occasionally had aluminum chips left over from manufacturing process. Usually the chips get cleaned out before installation into the car but not always. ONLY cure is to replace all components: compressor, both condensers (front and rear), both expansion valves (front and rear), and dryer. AND, before any new components installed, ALL lines must be flushed clean and blown (sucked?) dry. Since the compressors alone are $1200 (from dealer) and total job can run upwards of $2500, you don't want to do this too often. Get it done right the first time!! We did and it's been fine since then.
