Scotty, I was wondering if the clutch safety switches go bad, if so how do you check them? The problem is on the same 04 Suzuki XL7 that the battery was bad, anyway when you push the clutch in it almost lags, meaning there is a 1-3 second delay from when you turn the key from pressing the clutch pedal until the starter turns over, it cranks slow at first for .5 seconds or so then cranks the rest of the way normal. Was wondering if I could test the starter draw with a multi meter or if I'd have to take it to autzone? 120 something thousand miles on it, original starter.

JD. God Bless you.

you test their continuity, or cut the wires and splice em together and if it starts then, switch is bad.
