There is usually a button behind the brake pedal which does two things.

A. it actuates your brake light

B. It also unlocks the the gear selector

Sometimes they simply need an adjustment usually a 13mm lock nut and advance the switch in small incriments.

I had the same problem last year. I never found out why it went. Looked in manual, found the emergency shifter switch inside the left side of the shifter (you have to reach inside) to be able to drive it until I made a repair appt. My mechanic built some sort of bypass to keep that emergency switch on all the time, so now I don't have to depress the brake pedal to shift at all. I don't have the money to get it diagnosed and properly fixed :(

Cant find reverse in my grand Vitara


no year, no real answers, sorry, lots of GV made.
cant find reverse. what does that mean.?
cant move the shift lever to R?
no?
the shifter goes to R but car wont move in reverse? only? that gear is dead?
where is filter. what filter in what system?
my guess is Transmission filter.?
if transmission is an A/T the filter is in the transmission above the ATF oil pan. yes, we must take off the pan and get a bath in ATF.

the A/T service is covered in both manuals. operators and full FSM.
it say, take it in to service,
or in FSM how to.
all cars.

atf = automatic transmission fluid.

Speed sensor


Speed sensor located on transmission, looks like this:e1de20f2-8426-46a7-aab7-60e3dd45206e.gif
except the yellow gear will be inside the transmission. It will have wires going to it. Unplug the connector and pull it out. Replace it the same way you took that one out.2f4b0156-c294-4c73-8cba-82697e04e9cf.gif

I have a 01 suzuki grand vitara w/automatic transmission it has trouble shifting from 1st to 2nd gear shifts kinda hard. on start up in mornings sometimes will disengages out of gear altogether


A/T tranny's are complex and expensive devices.
I bet , its never been serviced, right?
why not do a full flush with new filter, if the filter (inside) is clogged
only hot ATF flows, easy. and causes low pump pressures.

do not go to Jiphphy lube or Quick lube joints, as they do bad work. (half arsed work)
go to a real shop with real ASE tech that know how to
service (fully) any automatic. (yes, they drop the pan)

2001 suzuki grand vitari will not come out of park.


Try stepping on the brake when shifting from park to a running gear. There is a built in safety feature that only allows you to shift out of park when the brake is depressed.

I want to know if a 2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara 4x4 with an automatic with a transfer case can be towed on a tow dolly without causing damage to trans, rear etc. since 2 wheels will be off the ground and 2 on...


This is when you put the shifter to NUETRAL, both shifter. The propeller may turn from where the 2 wheels on ground but it turns freely since the gears inside the transmission is disengaged.
