Most newer cars have a "shift interlock" on them so you can't shift out of PARK unless you are pressing the brake pedal. It is usually a switch attatched to the brake pedal under the dash. If this switch goes bad, you won't be able to shift out of PARK.

2007 suzuki forenza shift lever will not shift from park

check your owner's manual for shift interlock and how to bypass. make sure your brake lights are working. If not check for blown fuse. brake light switch failure will cause shifter interlock to not function. neutral safety switch must also be checked.

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.

The gear-shifter solenoid or brakelight switch has failed.

To check the brakelight switch, start the car and step on the brake. If the brakelights don't come on, the switch is faulty. You'll find the switch under the dashboard above the brake pedal.

If the brakelights came on, your shifter solenoid is probably bad. In this case, here's a quick-and-dirty fix to get you moving...

Look for a small plastic cover next to the gear shift. Pop this off with a fingernail or small flat screwdriver. There will be a hole beneath the cover. Push a small screwdwiver down that hole untill you feel some resistance. You should now be able to shift out of park.

Be warned...this trick allows a shift even without touching the brake. So get the solenoid fixed as soon as you can.

Good luck !
