You lost the operators guide,?
it costs $4 for a 1 day read. at

if you had that and read the warning light page you'd know...
did you check all fuses yet?
the battery light is really a battery charge lamp light.
if that lamp is out key on , only the lamp is bad.
if that lamp is out running,the alternator has shut down, (ask how to find true cause) or the engine is idling WAY below 800 RPM , is it?
brakes 101
the lamp serves many functions.
1: hand brake stuck on,.
2: low fluid in the MC Reservoir. (on master cylinder)
3: the front or rear brakes are weak or bad, (pressure diff, valve switch is active (bad news, do not drive)
4: ABS told , this lamp its not happy? (see FSM on topic)
if the 2st two are good, you then read the FSM. on brakes.

the fsm is here too , and has a 1 day pass....

is engine idling way too low ? not at 800rpm or more>?
that be first to fix, if true. and unsaid.
is the fan belt tight to the Alternator ?
is system voltage at 13.3 to 15v running, ( I BET NOT)
if NOT, fix that first , non of the electronics likes voltages much
below 10v, and well cause the engine to stall, as battery depletes.

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 !

SOURCE: 2005 Suzuki Forenza timing belt breakage

hi im not sure on this particular model but there a few easy ways to check.... take the spark plugs out, remove the broken belt, shine a light down the holes and look for dammdge, if you cant see anything you can turn the crank but it is a tricky job because you can ruin the engine so if your unsure get a mechanic to do it.. or your other alternative is to remove the head and have a look but you will need a new head gasket kit, timing belt and tensioner kit etc .. it is important that you do not turn the engine over when the belt is disconected in any way UNTIL you know for sure that valves wont hit pistons, even bending a valve will not be very noticable but when its all back together you will deffinately notice and will have to pull it all back apart

"B" lights? You mean brake lights? Could be the brake light switch. I'd start there. It's fairly easy to replace. To check the brake switch, remove it, and see if the piece that pushes in is stuck be gently pressing on it and if it doesn't press in, gently pull on it to see if comes out. If it doesn't not freely move, that is probably your issue. The brake pedal assembly presses it in when you step on it. For a 2004 Forenza, the part # is 37740-85Z22. If you have a 2005 - 2008 Forenza, the part # is 37740-86Z21. Both are under $20.

For what you are saying,for me ,first I check the pedal brake switch.Underneat the dash,where the brake pedal is located you are going to see the switch,probably only needs to be adjust,take it off and see if it works manualy,then put it back and adjust it whit the pedal,if not try whit a new one.

My 2005 Forenza will not shift ot of park unless I put the key in the shift lock. How do I fix this problem?

you have to take it to a suzuki certified repair place and have the brake module replaced. I had the same problem and that's what it was. By the way you probably don't have brake lights...I didn't when i had that problem
