All light bulbs and fuses are good, but when I hit the brake peddle the lights will not come on. My brake light on the top of the hatch back does come on when I hit the brake. the 3 rear lights on both...

The lower lights are on a separate fuse by law, that is why the hi mount works. Check for wiring issues to the rear brake lights wiring harness, buy a factory wiring diagram.

    My 2002 suzuki xl7 smokes when I start it.

    If its when you start it cold its probably valve stem seals,as the oil runs through them overnight and dumps in the cylinders when you start it cold and it smokes,if its smoking when hot or warm and when you rev it its probably piston rings,you didnt say how many miles are on the car,even try thicker oil and a new filter to help

    Remove radio

    Replace the CD player. To pull the plastic baffle off the dashboard: Adjust the heating vents so they point downwards. Grab the plastic bar between the heating vents and the stereo. Pull. Remove the screws from the front of the mounting brackets. Pull out the crappy stereo. Unplug the antenna and the wiring harnesses. Transfer the mounting brackets to your new stereo. Cut off the big wiring harness (unless you're lucky enough to have a replacement stereo that accepts the same kind). Connect the wires to the wires on your new stereo's harness.

    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.
