Not a bad job to replace the cam position sensor, it took about two hours cost about $150.00 with oem parts. First remove air filter box,remove plastic spark plug cover. Jack up engine about an inch remove engine mount. Now you can access sensor through a convenient cover that mounts around engine mount bracket extending from engine block.( one ten millimeter bolt) Remove accessory drive belt for a little extra room and replace with new one while you are in there. Just between the two cam gears you will see a torx screw that aligns the switch when in installed. DO NOT REMOVE THIS Just above the torx screw is a reverse torx screw (6 millimeter) Put a shop rag in the access hole to catch the screw just in case you drop it ,( so it does not fall into timing belt cover) Put something "sticky" in the 6 millimeter socket such as gasket sealer to keep from losing screw. remove. Pull switch up from inside spark plug cover and install new one through the same. reinstall 6 millimeter bolt. Switch is self aligning. Reinstall belt, engine mount, air box. Doing this myself probably saved me about $150.00 to $200.00 dollars

    i always keep a rare earth magnet in my pocket. Attach one to a screwdriver or pliers and hopefully you don't lose the magnet too

    I will give it a shot! Most posts say its in the timing belt area, I don't think that is where this screw went!

Suzuki Forenza error code P0782

Well code 782 is for a problem with the 2-3 shift solenoid or the circuit back to the engine computer. The solenoid is inside the transmission.
Code 722 was for a problem with the speed sensor. You could have a wiring harness problem.

Check engine light on forenza 2006

Has the timing belt been replaced per manufacturers recommendations? A loose/worn timing belt will cause cam lash and that can generate a fault code. Also i need the exact code as there are more than one for the sensor in question.

My 2008 suzuki forenza spits out a code saying it needs a TPS but most people are saying that you have to buy the whole throttle body but they sell the TPS by why would they sell it if you cant...

No OBD2 fault code tells you it needs a part, the codes indicate a problem in the systems input or output, that can be the actual part/sensor or it can be the wiring harness or the PCM (computer) This is where years of training come into play.

My 2005 suzuki forenza wont start , Ive tried compression which is fine, sparrk which is good and new fuel relay, its good and gets frul

All a good start. You must consider timing. If the timing is off it will not fire correctly. There are cam and crank sensors that do the job, they must be checked.

Several things can cause a car to die. The fact that you don't have any engine codes eliminates some of them. First thing you should try if you haven't is change the fuel filter. Make sure there are no damp, or damaged electrical components. It could be faulty spark plugs, or wires, or a vacuum leak. Check carefully under the hood for vacuum leaks. With the engine running, wiggle all the vacuum hoses around and check for cracked loose or broken hoses. They will make a hissing sound when you find it. A stethoscope, or a length of fuel line held to your ear can help a lot. Check all intake bolts for tightness too. Good luck.
