Hello and thank you for using justanswer. The Forenza (and Chevy Aveo) are made by Daewoo for these companies. Both of these cars have problems with the brake switch malfunctioning and causing the shifter not to work. Usually also causes brake lights not to work. The fix is to replace the brake light switch.
