I don't know your car,but the condition could be caused by excess moisture getting into the distributor or the coil, or wires to both. If you can pull the distributor cap, check the top for condensation. Use WD-40 to spray over the moisture and dispel the moisture.

see all tests, here,
fuse, good, so pump spins, and pump rotor spin?

ours only flashes for 1 reasons, it means the system is FUBAR

so bad you are burning up the CAT (its in the opr, guide)

so scan it...

why not state country.....????? here in USA we have OBD2 technology,, others, not till 2001,2006, or 2010... so? worlds a big place. no?

For sure your PCM is P\'\'$$ed off. huh?

our scan tool for 3.6 has Bxxx Pxxxx and Uxxxxx DTC codes.

we use a scan tool

is the chain screaming at you?????

but no matter.

the lamp glows for stored errors, called DTCs

the FSM covers this....

See TSBs on 3.6, bad chains?

Its a half baked, 3.6 GM engine in that XL7,

with an engine like that , youd be smart to own the FSM.

why work blind with any car with and engine like that.

read here.


and this, part, is a shock, (its a GM license Japanese engine)

note how SUZ has bad chains... in 2007 (my guess, china chains gone wrong, surely not Japanese RK chains, no way..... at all...... ISO 9000 chains are good.


Although the architecture for this engine begins with a General Motors North Star design, the N36A has

been redesigned from the cylinder heads on up by Suzuki engineers for application in XL7. The entire

engine is manufactured in Japan, including casting of the cylinder block. The engines are then shipped to

CAMI for installation in XL7. (USA MARKET and CANADA)

This engine is unique to XL7 and is not shared with any General Motors

products that are assembled at CAMI.

Key features to will be covered in detail in this reference book include:

• Engine mechanical configuration

• Camshaft timing

• THROTTLE ACTUATOR CONTROL system (drive by wire)

• Variable valve timing (VVT) for intake and exhaust valves

front or rear, the rear is a complex option.
in the heater box.
the 2007 FSM covers this best, all the tests and all steps to service.
10 tests there,
blend door, is that the recirc door? or temperature.
step 5 shows recir, checks.

the 07 automatic HVAC options, has 5 motors,
2 motors in rear, heat and mode
3 in the front, mode, Circ, and temp.

if the doors mess up, its caused by the door (damper jam)
motor jam, or controls ( no need to mention wires or connectors, as that is always true, for electrics)
its a complex system very much like on new honda's
id not attempt to work on it with out the FSM
or a subscription to alldata.com or mitchels.

its not a simple cable system like the old Suzukis/ at all.

wont crank robustly or does but engine will not start and run.
if it cant start, the TCL means zero, the lamp means , selftest pass
read the operators guide on lamps. its all there...
did you check all fuses?
is The CEL glowing?keyon, now that means the same.
glowing, means, My self checks (crude) are ok.
so is the CEL glowing, key on, if not the fuses are blown.
no starts have 4 basic causes, (all cars, since 1920)
1: lost DC power, to spark or fuel systems.
2: Lost compression in one or more cylinders, 150PSI min.
3: lost spark (5 minute test ,with a tests sparkplug.
3: bad fueling, too much or too little.

there are simple tests using simple and cheap tools for each tests.
want to test, or guess. your call.?

the cowl section, can fill with leaves, and cause a backup.
