Question about 2006 Suzuki Forenza
My check engine soon light came on and today when putting my car into reverse it gives me the square with the slash mark across it instead of an r and it seems to be dragging when changing gears
Your transmission range sensor needs to be replaced

I have the same problem. ALTHOUGH this will not Solve your problem, it will make things easier. It is apparently a transmission sensor error. It ONLY comes on when you try to go in reverse. I have been driving my car for 4 months now and I don't go in reverse anymore and the problem stopped. of course its hard, I only park in places I can pull out of, or park uphill so I can neutral backwards. Its a hassle but hey I'm a student with no money to fix this ****.
Also, When the light goes on, if you put the car in drive, it usually gets stuck in one gear and cant shift properly. making your engine sound weird. to fix this, you have to find a spot that's uphill. Park on an incline where the front of your car is pointing up. turn off the engine, turn it back on again and it should shift fine now. the engine light will go away in like a day or two after this. and wont come back on unless you go in reverse.
p.s. If you ever feel the need to go in reverse, you should probably put the car in neutral and try pushing it first to see if that works.
