Question about 2000 Suzuki Esteem
If the engine is not turning over then the solutions already listed above may work. But, if the engine does crank and won't fire then I'm betting it is the the crank position sensor that is at fault.

I find I have a similar problem with my Suzuki Esteem, that I'm trying to fix right now. I'm not an expert, but I believe it could be one of the following...
a) the contacts in the starter motor are worn out, therefore I'm not getting a surge in power that's needed to start the engine.
b) If I let my car sit overnight for twelve hours or so, it has a hard time turning over, the battery could be power-draining overnight (it might need to be replaced). I find it's starts easier when I unplug my accessories from the power adapter before I leave the vehicle.
c) The alternator is not charging the battery properly, which means the engine will have a hard time getting enough juice to turn over.
The first time this problem happened I recharged the battery for 20 minutes. I only ever had to do that once. Often it will start without jumping it if you just hold the key forward until the engine catches (takes about 5 seconds). I know that is a bandaid solution, pretty soon I'll have enough time to actually get find out what's going on.
I hope I may have been able to share some insight, let me know if you found any solution to it. I'll post my solution when I figure it out
