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 :(

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 have a 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara 4wd. My gear shift is stuck in park, the button on the side wll not push all the way in. What could be the problem?


One actuator solenoid and module assembly, located on the lower portion of the steering column, locks the shifter in Park whenever it receives a signal that the ignition switch is in the ON position. When the module receives a signal from the Brake On-Off (BOO) switch that indicates the brake pedal is depressed, it unlocks the shifter so that it can be shifted out of Park."

It says the most common failures in the system are the fuse and the BOO switch, and if they are fine, special tools are needed to diagnose.

To disable the system: Apply the parking brake, turn the ignition key to LOCK, then remove the key. Insert the key and turn it to OFF. Press the brake pedal. Shift to neutral, start the vehicle and select the desired gear. Check this and additionally, I suggest check if your vehicle has some NSS (Neutral Safety Switch) that would be adjust.

Hope this helps; just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Have a nice day and thanks for using FixYa.

Jose.

The power light is on on the dash of a suzuki vitara v6 automatic. What does this indicate?


turn the power switch off for the transmission. It is not a warning light. It just indicates the power switch for the trans is on which lets the trans delay shifting in each gear so it allows the engine to get more RPM'S so it produces more HP and Torque.
