Was your issue the range selector switch (a.k.a. range sensor, prindle switch, park/neutral safety switch). Part # 37720-86z01?

It is located on the outside of the transmission on the front side (not between the transmission and the firewall). You can open the hood and put an eye on it.

Be VERY sure to alignment it properly AND to clear the code.

If this helps, please say so!

Hi:
To help figure out what your problem is, get the check engine light scanned to see what code has tripped. Most local auto parts stores will scan your car for free. Most transmissions have several shift control modules and solenoids, and speed sensors that can cause problems. The code should help you narrow down what the problem is.

2006 Forenza goes into every gear but won't move?


is car a stick shift or auto.
must be and automatic trans
so do all shifted selections fail. on the gear shift lever.
lever does work right? moves.?
and PRNDL.
Reverse fail too?
and Drive
and Low.
get car serviced. or if handy....???
check levels, fuses and scan it.

yet another poster that never heard of or seen a stick shifted car.
gee, is it auto or stick
in both cases the cable most move at both ends.
and move correctly, or it will never shift.
have friend shift and you watch at the lever on side of the transaxle,
yes, that be like first and logical, right>

its just a cable shifter. its FWD as most are.


I wont say sounds like, as Im blind here and cant see car, drive it ,feel it or anything.
why ask the blind for help.?????
if it died moving, seems to me the cable didnt fall off and the trans shift to neutral, but?
but your post lack any facts. but died.

if car is AT (auto) check levels? for trans.
check linkage, yet.
check fuses, if it wont shift to 2nd,
if manual same checks, level and linkage works.
only the Fluid is different and the stick shift has a foot clutch and it can go bad too.
a stick shift clutch can fail and slip 100%
so , we can not guess what car you are driving
and asking for help when even you dont know that.
is over the top.

Got a 2007 Suzuki forenza and it was driving fine. I parked it and now it only has one gear and no reverse. Any ideas what it could be?


Start by ensuring the tranny fluid level is correct. Is the check engine light on? If so have any codes scanned that may be related to the transmission to point you in the right direction. You can also try disconnecting/reconnecting the battery to see if it will reset the transmission control module and correct your issue.

I Have a 2007 Suzuki Forenza with a winding in the Transmission the code PO783


get it fixed, are you going to diagnose and repair and A/T?
that car is a 1/2 GM/ Daewoo car. a sad mix of parts. (sell it? i would )
the service book is here. $4
This is called an FSM.
https://suzukipitstopplus.com/Products/1068-2007-forenza-reno-service-manual.aspx

783 (p07xx means tranny issues)

quote FSM:
Trouble Code: P0783 (2.0L L4 VIN - Auto)
3 - 4 Shift Malfunction Print this code dataprint_icon_codes.gif comments in (xxxx)
Trouble Code Conditions: (preconditions before test)
Transaxle oil temperature is greater than -10 °C (14 °F). Selector lever is not N (Neutral), P (Park) position. (warm , in gear)
System voltage is greater than 9 V.(car battery not dead)
No input speed error DTCs P0715, P0716 and P0717.
Speed sensors not dead.
Output speed is greater than 256 rpm. (tail shaft rpm (speed)
Input speed is greater than 400 rpm. (engine rpm after clutch)
3 - 4 gear shift is active. (the TCM commands shifts to 4th)
Possible Causes:
  • Circuit to solenoids bad.
  • ECM, bad.
  • TCM bad or inputs wrong.
  • end quote.
Comments:
this means, in pure physics.:
the transmission slip's
what that test failure means it bar stool talk is this.
I shafted to 4th but the MPH is too slow, so the transmission
is not shifting to 4th , or it slips

any mech would drive the car first. (did he?)
and flog it up hills (in Kansas? omg)
TO SEE, if it slips in 4th or fails to shift at all.

  1. fresh ATF? and filter? serviced and levels good on A/T
  2. is the 4th gear command to the shift solenoid good.?(logic)
  3. if trans slips? (fails FSM book stall tests) bad tranny.
  4. if the trans fails stall , check line pressure per FSM.
like that, and more, lots to say on A/T
If in uSA find a real , shop, with ASE techs. and win.

When do I use the d 5 gear in acura 2003 tl 3.2 liter


Pretty much all the time!

D3, D4, and D5 are all just *DRIVE* like on any automatic transmission, EXCEPT
that the number next to the D is the "highest gear the automatic transmission will go into".
The Acura just gives you a choice, in case you don't want to go into a higher gear (like if it's slippery traction or a steep hill, etc.)

1 means: Manual gear. FIRST GEAR ONLY.
2 means: Manual gear. SECOND GEAR ONLY.
D3 means: Use automatic transmission, but engine will never shift above 3rd gear.
D4 means: Use automatic transmission, but engine will never shift above 4th gear.
D5 means: Use automatic transmission, but engine will never shift above 5th gear.

Gear shift sticks in park on suzuki forenza 2006


You may want to check the gear lock mechanism. This is the one that prevents you from moving from park when you accidentally hit the lever. If that checks out ok, you may want to inspect the linkages of the shifter to the transmission.
