If you're finding it difficult to service/repair your car, get one of those online manuals. You'll not have to wait for others to answer, or rely on mechanics and all.

i know a website that has very good manuals online, without expiry i.e. for lifetime.

The light refers to the automatic gearbox. It is a general warning that there could be some sort of problem. It could be anything from low oil level to gearbox failure. Get a good mechanic to service the transmission as it might be something simple like low gearbox oil.

The problem is with the actuator in the door lock mechanism (located inside the door) on the door or doors that will not respond. . When an actuator fails(which is quite common on older cars with much use) it will need to be replaced.

if stuck or seized, we fix that first.
clean it? then grease it with "brake" grease.
then adjust it by the book.
"how" has many connotations.
a tool?
or a method.
on many cars, its only inspected, or reset , and are automatic.
the fsm covers this.
you didnt say what you were doing to get there.
new SHOES?
ill guess that. so the book shows, removing them.
and cleaning the the adjuster,then when free, and clean
screw it back in , and as a last step.
adjust it until the shoes , the drum, and then at that star adjuster
back it off 4 or 5 clicks.
some swifts work differerent in your country than ours.
try posting a photo of yours, so other can see, what TYPE
you have.
some have a ratchet adjuster, and the method is totally different on those.

generic photo. talking #6 are you?

number 6 is a STAR adjuster, like use in olden days.
there is rubber plug on backing plate to reach it. using a tool called a brake spoon (or DYI a screwdrive (harder to use)

apples and oranges difff. the below is suz, auto adjuster
25898098-ust3dzntxruro2trcdjxinuk-2-1.jpg best practice for diy, buy the FSM book and read the brake page
first, and photograph the parts be for taking them off. (win)

wow, the car came with 2 key /FOB.
lost the other one?

i can see you didnt read the manual.
it tells you the rules for this, (DIY rule)
many cars you must have 2 keys good to get a 3 working, DIY.

did you google how to buy the key?
then read the free how to papers on said key,"there"
it answers that question too. if you just read it.

the rules vary by all cars, all years.
my car takes 2 keys to get third, unless you break rule 2
8 keys max.

is this USA car? this is USA forum so if you fail to say country
we tell you USA rules and we lie.
but that dont stop 99.9% of posters asking for more lies.

Check oil, security tamper systems, May be a security code messed up because of battery disconnect or fuse movement.

new cable or attachments,
its just a lever and a cable the part that is loose is bad.
pure linear mechanics. like a bicycle brake.

Remove the belt and check those parts. Spin them by hand The alternator should spin freely. The PS pump will have more drag on it. Also check the tensioner and idler pulleys. When turning them Feel for roughness. All these should be smooth turning. No bumps or grinding. One of them is going to be tight or rough. The PS pump will move in and out a bit, this is normal.
