My 2008 suzuki forenza(automatic)stalls after i start it

It has only 3000 miles and stutters or stalls when i start it. no indicater lights come
on so the service depts say there is nothing they can do! i thought of bad gas but have run the tank far down several times and doesnt seem to help. also, when i touch the power window buttons at night the lights
flicker,or lower as if theres a drain on the battery. i like the car otherwise, thanx shawn rogge

    Why can't you take it back to a Suzuki dealer, and have them fix it under warranty? The battery cables are tight, i assume?

I have the same problem. I've been experiencing the same problem for about a year and have taken it in for service at least 9 times. I went to arbitration and because I could not reproduce the problem during arbitration and Suzuki says they have never been able to reproduce the problem they denied the repurchase of the car. I am now entering a lawsuit to see if I can get anywhere that way. Let me know if you get anywhere with your car please!

Where is the 3-4 shift solenoid and transmission control module on my 2008 Suzuki Forenza?

You need to have the Transmission Control Module scanned for fault codes before you attempt any repairs or you may as well flush your money. Guessing on modern electronically controlled transmissions is a really bad idea.

I also have a 2008 Forenza. It is currently at the dealership because the transmission failed. I took it to the dealership and asked them to look into it when I got an oil change, they said they found nothing. Two days later, the check engine light was on and the car was severly jerking like it could not catch the correct gear. At first they said it was a sensor, and fixed that. I picked the car up, drove 1 mile, and it started jerking again - needless to say, I went back. They told me it could be the transmission module, but if not, they would have to replace the entire transmission. My advise is to be persistant with the dealership to find your problem or they will continue to pacify you and brush you off.
