My wife had 2007 suzuki forenza with the same problem , I look it over, the problem was the brake light switch. I Bought a new one at suzuki dealer in orlando for $15.10 part # 37740-86z21 and replaced it my self , it took less than 5 munites to replace.works great now.The reason the gear would not shift out of park is that the brake switch has to send a signal to the relay switch on the gear shifter to remove the shift lock .If this switch is not working it can not send that signal to the relay.Another way you can tell it is the brake light switch is that your rear brake light would not work .You can also bypass this and use your car until you get the brake light switch , here how .look at your gear shifter and locate a small oval shaped cut out (it may have shift lock written next to it ).take a small flat screw driver or some thing Similar and pry out that little plastic incert .Then when you start your car and you are about to shift out of park place a key of any a small screw flat driver into the hole and push down and shift out of park.Once out of park you can shift to any gear if you return the shifter to park you would have to incert the screw driver again.If you need to locate the brake light switch just follow your brake pedal up under the dash board it will be a small white plastic switch attached above the btrke pedal .IT is very simple to replace ,when you locate it just twist it anti clock wise and it will come off , then press the clip in the plug and remove the brake switch from the wire harness.To replace the new one just press the brake pedal down place the switch back where the old one came off and twist clock wise until it snaps into place.and replace the wire plug.REMBER When you get your new brake switch DO NOT press it down or it will get stuck.IF this happens just pull it back it out.and do not buy this part at any auto parts store because the connecter woul be smaller .go to a suzuki dealer ....THEN WHEN YOU FIX THIS PROBLEM GET RID OF THE CAR THIS IS ONLY THE START FOR PROBLEMS TO COME ...GOOD LUCK..

any key in slot and push. bang, it opens (brake set,etc)

I have a 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara 4wd. My gear shift is stuck in park, the button on the side wll not push all the way in. What could be the problem?


One actuator solenoid and module assembly, located on the lower portion of the steering column, locks the shifter in Park whenever it receives a signal that the ignition switch is in the ON position. When the module receives a signal from the Brake On-Off (BOO) switch that indicates the brake pedal is depressed, it unlocks the shifter so that it can be shifted out of Park."

It says the most common failures in the system are the fuse and the BOO switch, and if they are fine, special tools are needed to diagnose.

To disable the system: Apply the parking brake, turn the ignition key to LOCK, then remove the key. Insert the key and turn it to OFF. Press the brake pedal. Shift to neutral, start the vehicle and select the desired gear. Check this and additionally, I suggest check if your vehicle has some NSS (Neutral Safety Switch) that would be adjust.

Hope this helps; just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Have a nice day and thanks for using FixYa.

Jose.

With a dead battery, how do you shift from Park to Neutral?


there should be a release button on the shifter area, theres a small cover you can remove then insert the key and push down on the key and then the shifter should release, i have seen some cars without it and if this is the case with this car then you will need a booster pack or battery charger hook tobattery to release 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.

Shift lock parking break


ck if your brake lights are working, if not, ck the fuse. if fuse is good and brake lights work, could be problem with solenoid not unlocking the lever, there should be a bypass so you can get it into gear (small slot near shifer, put your key in there to release shifter)

Key gets stuck in ignition


My daughter drives a Suzuki, my solution to her is: while the gear shift lever is in park, lightly put pressure on the gear shift lever, through the park position and while pressing the gear shift towards park light rock left to right while trying to remove the key.

The interlock between the transmission and the ignition switch needs to be adjusted/ repaired or replaced.
