You got lose control lever cable on the transmission side

2007 Suzuki... | Answered on Nov 18, 2017


Sounds like it is having trouble getting to first gear. You really should have a transmission shop look at it. Could be the linkage or range sensor, but seems more like a shift solenoid to me.

It is standard practice with lots of modern cars to leave the ignition key in and turned to the on position when connecting a battery as this helps prevent alarms sounding, immobilisers engaging and all sorts of inconvenient stuff happening. It is even better to use a memory saver while changing a battery so not even the radio code and stations are lost.

You didn't say how long you have owned the car. If it was a recent purchase it should have been returned to the dealer as soon as you realised the battery was faulty. There is such a thing as warranty and consumer rights. The dealer certainly should not have sold the car with a defective seatbelt.

It certainly seems like the security system is activated though the presence of the key in the ignition should deactivate it if it is working ok so maybe it is broken or maybe it has forgotten the correct code and needs reprogramming.

It is possibly a coincidence and there is a fault, perhaps caused by the first mechanic. Before towing the car to the Suzuki dealer or calling for an autolocksmith it would be a good idea to physically check voltages, wiring, the presence of fuel and injection pulses, spark and suchlike. If all seems well under the bonnet the chances of an immobiliser malfunction are quite high. Reading the vehicle handbook is always a good place to begin.

old posts.
asked vast times
here again.
J20b engine, is 4 banger,
the knock sensors on most 4 bangers are on the center of the block between #2 and #3 water jackets, (best sonic location)
now ill post a photo of this. btw the 4 buck service manual covers this>?? a fact.
you ask how to unscrew a sensor? really?
why not look first and see it.
the sensor, if you bought one, is a donut shape with center hold down screw, we just unscrew it. 6mm bolt. i think it is.
its on the starter side, see ST?
and is there,
aka, as the fire wall side of the engine.
its in the best spot too, sonic-ally, best.
jacking up car on stands does wonders to find things here.

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

forename?
07 forenza (seems all posts are for this 1 suzuki)
a problematic car for sure....?
in what country, car has 6 engines, but 1 in USA>
so cant help you lacking where you are, (name a country,not your IPaddress)
we have the 2.0L engine, in USA< this is a USA forum so......??

ok the computers in your car are way smarter than say 1988 Samurai.
the PCM that runs the engine, for SURE cuts AC to keep engine from self destructing!! AC can do that,,,,,,
want a cracked or warped engine head ?
no.
the PCM cuts the a/c, and if engine is overloaded. or overheated
so forget the A/C
fix engine overheating (primary issues)
and guess wha?t , that gets worse, so delaying the fix
a $5 part compounds to $3000 new engine.
why not just get car fixed.???
"we cant teach you 50 years of engine problems in 5min time."
best post ever that.. here.

1: fuses good? check them it means.
2: water leaks?
3: levels wrong? (in actual rad, cold tested)
4: fan belts loose?
5: bad thermostat
6: bad water pump, impeller rusted to zip, do to abuse.
7: over heats parked only or moving fast or only up hills,? key facts if only parked the fan is dead.
8; lots more, but i end here

canada or USA, (diffr. laws, different wiring, even DRL up there)
station wagon or NOT?
THE TURNS FUSE BLEW OUT. 2nd time, 3rd,,,?????
that means the circuit is overloaded or shorted.! (prevents fire)
but did it blow a 2nd time, why not say so???

all 4 lamps dead. or stuck on, or flash odd. or what? dim?
does the cluster lamp flash, , in blink or emerg. mode?
wont work , means what, (dead or stuck on or dim)?????
do emergency flashers work? ,dead, stuck on what?
does car drive perfect day or night?
are any other things on car dead, of odd acting?
we see all this , 1st 5 min in a shop, zero here.
ive answered Forenza blinks here, many times.
ever search?

ill now answer by guessing USA non stationwagon and no DRL.
dash box fuse 4 kills blinkers

EF1 (engine fuse) 1 good?
dash fuse 14 and EF1 can kills emerg. flasher

so of Emergancy flash lamps blows fuse 14,(smaller of 2)
then the blinkers are in fact shorted.
does it?
if yes, then find out which side blows the fuse 3.
turns left blow or turns right blows.
so if say turns right blows, F4 fuse.
if true ?remove all bulbs front rear right bulbs.
does the fuse hold now,(means not blown)
then buy new lamps there. problem solved
bulbs can in fact short.
not just blow open.
Tell the full story and all this gets easy.
For sure emergency flash,

sounds like a weak fuel pump, or in need of a major tune up. is the engine light on are there any codes.

2007 Suzuki... | Answered on Jan 31, 2016


no starts have 50 causes
no tuneup tops list
there are 1 to 15 tests to find it, using tools and meters/gauges
scan it yet
check fuses yet?
does CEL lamp glow key on, (it must)_

2.0L engine? J20a?
no spark?
if spark is ok, try test fuel? yet?
if test fuel fails, engine or spark are bad.
15min work, this,,,, and no more guessing what part of system failed.

2007 Suzuki... | Answered on Jan 24, 2016


lots of causes for that. which engine the 2.0L? (8 used world wide)
takes me 1 to 10 tests to find most failures.
first is to scan it, to see if there serious, problems with the throttle by wire system (motor driven throttle)
this new tech, prevents grandma from running over things, when idle controls are bad. (read, toyota 1billion suit loss....)
cant fix cars today with out a scan too. its not going to happen.
unless you win at slot machines every pull. (magic luck at guessing)
you might check to see if the throttle valve is packed junk
and clean that off. (blocked open it might be)
vacuum hoses fell off.
cracked vacuum servo diaphragms.
cracked brake booster diaphragms, ( all cause vacuum leaks)
there are lots of other causes.
mechical in engine,
EFI sensors
Injectors
and more. and lots of tests. to prove them out.
but why not scan it ,first. (check fuses too)

2007 Suzuki... | Answered on Oct 21, 2015


check for an over full brake reservoir as some vehicle clutch cylinders get their oil from the brake master cylinder and if the oil was not bled out when pushing the pistons back in , there is a possibility that the clutch operation has been affected

2007 Suzuki... | Answered on Oct 19, 2015


I'm surprised they did not try to sell you an alternator.
Code 562 is for battery voltage below spec, and code 700 is a generic code for a problem with the transmission.
Based on the two codes, you would need to first have the alternator tested, and then have someone check out the performance of the transmission. Code 562 could cause code 700.
