I have had the same problem, Push the shift lever to the right gently and listen for a click. then turn your key and hope it is still under warranty

I don't know abou the ignition switch, but the hold button is to keep the transmission from shifting back and forth between gears when traversing a hilly terrain.

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.

My 2005 Suzuki Fore za will not go into gear. starts and sounds fine. won't let me put it in gear.


if this is a standard trans. the clutch slave cyl. may be at fault. if this is a standard trans. the shift interlock may be at fault. this can be bypassed by using a key located left of your shifter stick in console models.or loosen the console and manually disconnect the device.

Shifter loose like a spring is gone have to hold to left to work it properly 2007 suzuki forenza


get to the top of the gear box and you will find 4 bolts that hold the turret to the top of the box take it off and the gear lever comes with it . In the gear box there will be a slot across all the selector rails that is neutral for the gear lever. At one end of the slot you will see a plunger that is spring loaded This prevents inadvertent selection of reverse and it pushes the gear lever to the central position. check that spring operation

SHIFT NOT WORKING AND BRAKE LIGHTS WENT OUT AT THE SAME TIME. I CAN PUSH SOMETHING IN THE SHIFT INDICATOR BOX AND IT WILL REVERSE, BUT THE BRAKE LIGHTS STILL DO NOT COME ON UNTIL I TURN MY LIGHTS ON.


i don't mind shouting, I'm old school , from days of caps only terminals and teletypes ASR33s , CAP ON. Viet Nam,...... etc....

i have only questions, I'm retired now.. and can help.
what transmission< A/T or M/T? i drive M/Ts, what do you drive.?
shifter lever not working.? the key word here is "Lever".
does that mean the lever is stuck , or the A/T fails to shift
automatically from, 1st to 2nd. my guess is lever.

ok , i think you have A/T and on A/T cars the brake light
switch is the logical permissive, to shift out of PARK ,them means
if the brake switch is bad or not adjusted correctly the
A/T park lock circuits fail.
You can say, my car is stuck in PARK and we all know what that means.

on most SUZ, cars, thereis shift console defeat switch,for this lock soleniod , inside..
on many its lower left corner of console shifter base next to your seat.
the cars operator guide in the glove box (free from suz dealer)
and tells you all this, driving car with out that free book is problematic, they say.

no, the tail lights are not brake lights.
they are 2 independent systems,
if you need a full shop manual its here.

Gear shifter is broken


When you say it is broken do you mean it won't move into certain gears?

In past couple days our '04 Echo shifting lever won't go into Park or 2 or Lo gear. And we couldn't take the key out of the ignition. My husband took to center console cover off and when he loosened the bolt under the lever we were able to get it into park and get the key out. But still cannot get into the lower gears. Will probably be taking it to a transmission shop before making major decision.

If your's is an automatic trans, and it is locked in park, there is a small opening on the right/front side of the shifter, pop the top and press the white button, it releases the lever.

Good Luck!

My car gives a **** when I shift gears and it takes a while to accelerate after the ****... It is an automatic and its a 2007 model.. please help!!


Sounds like an electrical problem. It does have a 100K warranty on the trans. Take it to the dealer to be sure. I see alot of trans range sensors go bad on those models.

"Hold" Button on console beside gear shift - what's it's purpose - we don't know!


Owner's Manual says "You can select this mode to drive with some characteristics of a manual transmission. With the HOLD mode turned on, the automatic transmission will stay in a specific gear range.

Press the HOLD button on the shift lever to turn on the HOLD mode.

While on, the HOLD indicator light on the instrument panel will light up..."

The button is on the console, next to the shift lever, and the HOLD indicator light is in the lower left hand corner of the instrument panel

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.
