Question about 2006 Suzuki Forenza

Open Question

2006 Suzuki Forenza (2006) automatic transmission range sensor replacement. I am having difficulty with the automatic transmission. It disconnects, loses power and the rpmâ??s run high while driving down the road typically 10 or 15 minutes after starting. It reengages after a few minutes shifting back and forth D, N, 3 etc. Sometimes the car jerks strongly when shifting from park to reverse pulling out of the driveway. Internet forums have said this is the range sensor and is not uncommon on these cars. Is this the correct part? Is it a part I can replace at home and what do I need to do to change it?

SOURCE: TRANSMISSION PULLS VERY VERY SLOW IN DRIVE AND ONLY WHEN I ACCELERATE HEAVILY. REVERSE WORKS FINE.

is this car still under warranty? if so take it back to the dealer and don't accept it as repaired till you drive it. sounds like the logic that controls the transmission is flipping out, sometimes they will tell you that it needs a reflash. what this amounts to is that the manufacturer put some not so great programming in the logic when they built the car but now they have a patch or fix that makes it work better but you have to pay them for their time to install the fix. ask them what they will charge you for the privilege and decide if it's worth it to you. there is a recorded technical service bulletin about harsh shifts for your car. well, actually there are two, the latest one a revision of the first. i would try to make this their problem, it really is. hope this helps.

SOURCE: Issue after replacing the Transmission Range Sensor

I've talked to three different Suzuki Dealerships since mine just went out as well, and they have all told me that they have to reprogram the computer or it wouldn't be able to shift into the correct gear.

Where is the transmission range sensor for 2006 suzuki forenza located


Right on the transmission, to the right side of the engine bay as you are looking down on it. It is a black plastic part that is bolted on the transmission with two 10mm bolts, and connected to the transmission with rod and clip. It is partially obstructed by the radiator hose, but otherwise really easy to get to.

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!

TRANSMISSION RANGE SENSOR FOR 2006 SUZUKI FORENZA IS IT PART OF WHEEL TRAIN? AND IF i FIX IT MYSELF DO i NEED IT CALIBRATED BY COMPUTER?


You do not need to "calibrate the computer" when changing the trans. range sensor. If the dealer is telling you this, it is because they want more of your money. Just buy the sensor.

Transmission or Engagement issue?


I had the same problem with my 2006 Forenza - the problem was the transmission range sensor. If you look under the hood, on the drivers side, you'll see your trans. cable connected to a round part that also has an electrical cable coming from it. That is it. Part costs $36.07 at oemsuzukiparts.com (search for Neutral safety switch in the mechanical catalog).
