Customer Question
Its an 05 suzuki...

Its an 05 suzuki stationwagon and it has 87431mi. recently the error code and check engine light came on and it was a p0700 and a p0783 shift malfunction code. i have done everything short of changing the entire trans and yet its still not moving .the one common thing i noticed is when in p,n,d, and 3,2,1 it seems to be malfunctioning on the shift indicator on the digital dash lamp in dash

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

It blinks

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '05 Suzuki?

Forenza stationwagon

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Forenza yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes i replaced the small harness to pcm the entire valve body the pcm and the range sensor and its mechanisms

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No just what to do next
