You may have an issue with the solenoid. This is the one that selects the gear for you. It is found inside the transmission and has wires coming out of it. It may be just dirty or needs repelacement.

Where is the neutral switch located on a 1994 suzuki swift manual transmission auto

like most m/t ,its on top of the transmission.
that is because it needs to sense the SHIFT rails there.
and takes flash light to see under car.
but usually there is no neutral switch,
only reverse. for backup lamps
why not post what dont work right first?

automatics have PRNDL, and many switches for many reasons

the stick shift has clutch switch, this is the functional , same part
so car cant move in gear cranking....

I have a 1996 suzuki swift,why does engine stall out when I put into gear,like torque converter is locking up.I changed converter?

low engine power.. which engine, there are 7 .
ever put in a new timing belt , 60,000 mles service it is.
if not it slips and power goes byebye.

if you use your right foot to stop the stall does it, and if you do that
do you get full power>?
if yes, yes, then the ISC is stuck closed or EGR stuck open.

the ECU raises the ISC valve to keep a/t from stalling,
it open the valve at the moment of the shift to any gear.
P/n to any gears. if it cant open it will stall.
that is how the idle controls work.

Suzuki 1,3 auto swift gear box has problem changing from 2 to 1 driveengages with a clunk. Told it is software that needs reprogramming after a clutch change. is this correct?

find shop that can diagnose a bad t ranny, Automatics are complex ,
also the PCM , you cans scan it for t ranny DTCs fail codes, i see you are scan too free, right>? why not look, i bet you get P07xx errors.
The TCM (in the PCM brain) has what is called failsafe, if the TCM
detects gross slippage or other errors its drops to failsafe. (DTCs too)
and limits the gears available , all of this is in the FSM and the tests are complex. fixing a A/T with no FSM book is "near impossible"
FSM = a real Factory service manul
or at least go to or mistchells, and read those sections. online.

Car is stuck in second gear and wont go in reverse. it is a 1995 suzuki swift cino with a 5spd manual. Thoughts?

try rocking it while someone sits in it trying to pull out of second. This may give you enough play to get out of the stuck gear. Sounds like a linkage problem

Car gear change - Suzuki Swift

Look this is a tough issue please rate it at least a helpful, here it is, you may have a worn rail in the gear box shifter parts, many times these loose parts will allow the trans to get into the wrong gear or try to go into 2 gears at once, replace the shifter parts inside the trans and I will bet the issue goes away.
