Question about 2006 Suzuki Forenza
My check engine light kept coming on, but I could not find out what the problem was. Now the display showing what gear I am in keeps flasing while I drive. It has now started to take awhile to speed up, as if the car was stuck between Neutral and Drive. help please!!
I had the same problem. The first thing that came up when they scanned my car was that I needed a new throttle body. Got that. That got rid of my car riding rough. Then they scanned it again for the flashing light. What came up was transmission range sensor. Costs about 45 bucks and my car has been driving like a dream for almost a couple days now :) I only got it on Wednesday but so far so good!

I have the same problem. ALTHOUGH this will not Solve your problem, it
will make things easier. It is apparently a transmission sensor error.
It ONLY comes on when you try to go in reverse. I have been driving my
car for 4 months now and I don't go in reverse anymore and the problem
stopped. of course its hard, I only park in places I can pull out of,
or park uphill so I can neutral backwards. Its a hassle but hey I'm a
student with no money to fix this ****.
Also, When the light goes on, if you put the car in drive, it usually gets stuck in one gear and cant shift properly. making your engine sound weird. to fix this, you have to find a spot that's uphill. Park on an incline where the front of your car is pointing up. turn off the engine, turn it back on again and it should shift fine now. the engine light will go away in like a day or two after this. and wont come back on unless you go in reverse.
p.s. If you ever feel the need to go in reverse, you should probably put the car in neutral and try pushing it first to see if that works.
