My shifter got locked i hav a 2006 forenza


Most newer cars have a "shift interlock" on them so you can't shift out of PARK unless you are pressing the brake pedal. It is usually a switch attatched to the brake pedal under the dash. If this switch goes bad, you won't be able to shift out of PARK.

I have a 2006 Suzuki Forenza that is stuck in park. I can get it out of park to reverse but it takes awhile. No one can say whats wrong with it but so far it could be the stop light switch, reverse...


Most common reason is that your ignition switch is too fussy. Spray some WD-40 on the key and then insert it and turn it on. Repeat a few times if necessary. J.

2006 suzuki forenza. automatic transmission. Check engine light came on. transmission would not shift out of 4th gear. on a hill or level surface only in high gear. could it be the module on the...


Was your issue the range selector switch (a.k.a. range sensor, prindle switch, park/neutral safety switch). Part # 37720-86z01?

It is located on the outside of the transmission on the front side (not between the transmission and the firewall). You can open the hood and put an eye on it.

Be VERY sure to alignment it properly AND to clear the code.

If this helps, please say so!

Gear shift sticks in park on suzuki forenza 2006


You may want to check the gear lock mechanism. This is the one that prevents you from moving from park when you accidentally hit the lever. If that checks out ok, you may want to inspect the linkages of the shifter to the transmission.

Unable to get out of park, must use key in shift release slot


I had this problem. Purchased a brake switch that fits against the back of the brake pedal arm. It has a small plunger that fits against the top of the pedal arm and plugs into a power source. Hard to get to, but only cost me $18. The switch releases the shifter. No problems since.

The gear-shifter solenoid or brakelight switch has failed.

To check the brakelight switch, start the car and step on the brake. If the brakelights don't come on, the switch is faulty. You'll find the switch under the dashboard above the brake pedal.

If the brakelights came on, your shifter solenoid is probably bad. In this case, here's a quick-and-dirty fix to get you moving...

Look for a small plastic cover next to the gear shift. Pop this off with a fingernail or small flat screwdriver. There will be a hole beneath the cover. Push a small screwdwiver down that hole untill you feel some resistance. You should now be able to shift out of park.

Be warned...this trick allows a shift even without touching the brake. So get the solenoid fixed as soon as you can.

Good luck !
