SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: suzuki XL7 -horn

The owner should locate the horn circuit . prepare the tools or equipment to be used.So that when the horn circuit is check it function properly.locate horn unit,horn relay,horn switch,horn power supply.check the fuse, check the relay,check the switch,check the wires,check the horn unit.Observe safety precautions.Use terms to describe checking horn circuit. If there are worn out or malfunctioning parts replace them.If there are loose connections of wires then reconnect it . But if the owner cant do it go to a car mechanic and the mechanic will do the job.

AWD. Remote starter causes lights to turn on and stay on but why doesn't engine start?

but does manual starts work, with key in dash key socket?????????
is this the factory remote start option?
do both FOBs fail>?

if yes, know that the factory version is very strict on cranking rules. (laws to OEM)
so if yes, then you must scan the pcm
if you see any DTC errors, bingo.

this is to prevent injury of those around any car with this junk. 15+ deaths and growing.
both keyless and remote start.

if you have tools, then get car serviced
the modern system will do that
if doors are ajar (real or switches lying)
if transmission shiftier in wrong state, (true or not (switches fail)
or gross engine or transmission errors detected.
or low battery (in car)
(well the fsm on car tells you all this, read it?)

here it is.
just 4 bucks to read it

read about Remote start diagnosis.
if that sounds too hard,? (for most folks, yes)
get car repaired? at a shop?>
--------------------fsm excerpts to scare you-----
Remote Vehicle Start Inoperative

Diagnostic Instructions

Perform the Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle ) prior to using this diagnostic procedure.

Review Strategy Based Diagnosis for an overview of each diagnostic approach.

Diagnostic Procedure Instructions provides an overview of each diagnostic category.

Circuit/System Description

Remote vehicle start (RVS) begins as an RF message received by the remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR) from a keyless entry transmitter. The RVS request is sent by the RCDLR to the body control module (BCM) via serial data. The BCM monitors system conditions such as content theft deterrent (CTD), hood ajar status, and body DTCs to determine if an RVS event will occur. If conditions are determined to be acceptable, the RVS message is sent to the engine control module (ECM). The ECM monitors system conditions such as engine control parameters and vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) to determine if engine starting will be allowed. If conditions are acceptable, the ECM will initiate engine starting. During the engine run time in a RVS attempt, before the operator enters the vehicle, the ECM may discontinue engine operation if system conditions require it or a message is received from the BCM requesting the engine be turned OFF.

Diagnostic Aids


Important: If the vehicle has a current vehicle DTC that illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL), the cause of the DTC must be diagnosed before proceeding with the Remote Vehicle Start Inoperative diagnostic.

The RVS system will not operate if any of the following conditions are present:

A current vehicle DTC that illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL)

The vehicle is in valet mode.

More than 2 remote starts have been attempted.

The hazard switch is in the ON position.

A current hazard switch DTC is set.

The vehicle hood is ajar.

A current hood ajar DTC is set.

The CTD system detects an alarm trigger.

Excessive engine RPM

Excessive coolant temperature

Accelerator pedal position greater than 0 percent

Vehicle not in park

Vehicle theft deterrent malfunction

A current automatic transmission shift lock control system DRC is set.

A vehicle speed sensor signal is detected by the ECM.
end quote.

you can read the FSM online for $4 the real 100%
suzuki FSM, do so, or get car serviced like 99% do today.

This list will grow , after 3 top lawsuits
win cases and recalls, happen.
My prediction.... Carbon dioxide poisoning.
the silent killler.
rule 1, to be added.
cant exit car with it running... Keyless. starts.
and car can not keep running, if ambient CO is too high, a new sensor, added.
many older homes have zero protection for CO detection, nor properly sealed garages..
garage to home.
Innocent deaths, and some are unsolved !

For about 2 weeks my car has been hard to start now it wont start it acts like the starter is not engaging to turn motor over when you try to start it it makes a whinning spinning noise we took starter off...

sounds like the battery wire to the starter is possibly the culprit, it may have a bad spot in it not allowing enough voltage to the starter. also depending on the brand solenoid you purchased it is possible to get a bad one. i recommend borg warner electrical products. i hope this helps.
