Get a paperclip or a short piece of still wire. Put your fingers behind the side stand and trace to 2 wires from the switch. They will go to a little plug behind the side cover. Unplug the plug from the socket and 'jump' the plug with the wire. make sure you jump the right side, jump the side going into the harness, not the switch side. Don't leave it 'jumped' for ever. You might have a mishap if you ride off with the side stand down. This is more a temporary fix / bodge to get you home.

Problem changing gears when hot. ok when cold!


It will be best to get someone to check the hydraulics of the clutch. That is a common issue.
Get a workshop to drain the gearbox oil and flush the system. A tell tale may come from the drained oil if the tranny is near end of life.

G'day
As painfull as this sounds you will probably have to take off the cover around yor gear stic and do a visual inspection. Most manufacturers use plastic bushes in the linkages that once worn seem to lock up at the most annoying time. The bush's are not expensive to replace but time consuming. A quick short term fix is to give the whole assembly a good spray of WD 40 or Inox or any good spray on lubricant.
Good luck.

Hi On driving a Suzuki Vitara JLX 96 P Reg


Sounds like a clutch problem to me.
So, with the engine off, can you select all gears? If yes, your gearbox is probably OK.
And now with the engine idling, can you select any gears with out crunching? If this is difficult, then try this next test in an area where movement forward or backwards won't be a problem.
With the engine OFF, foot ON the clutch, the handbrake OFF, and in 1st gear, start the car. BE READY TO TURN IT OFF.
If the car moved forward as you cranked the engine, then your clutch is not adjusted properly or has worn out. That is more-than-likely the smell you got before - burnt clutch disc from it slipping.
You can drive it, but every time you want to start off, you'll have to turn the engine off, select 1st then start the engine. Accelerate slowly, making sure the revs don't rise faster that you're speeding up, and change gear by judging engine revs between gears.
Don't keep driving it as it is, as you WILL have gearbox problems if you don't fix the clutch.

Won't go into gear. Like it's stuck in neutral .Started off as difficult to shift when stopped about 20 min. later lost all gears while shifting from 2nd to 3rd.


Sounds like a clutch-related problem. To see if it is, firstly get the car in an area where it could move forwards or backwards a bit without hitting anything. I'm going to assume now that you can select all the gears just like normal when the engine is off. If you can't, then the problem is with the gearbox linkage or the gearbox itself. Then, with the engine stopped, select 1st gear and put your foot on the clutch and then start the engine. If the car attempts to drive off or the starter motor is driving the car, then the clutch cable requires checking or adjusting, or your clutch has worn out. A worn clutch won't allow you to change gears with the engine running. You may be able to tighten the clutch cable a bit to get a temporary fix, but think about replacing the clutch now.
