Question about Suzuki Forenza
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?
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 !

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
