go8b - DONT SWAP your tranny
I have the same exact car with the same exact problem - I have been warming the car up with the Ebrake on in Drive so i can drive the car to and from work. It is not an internal problem - there is a shift solenoid that is not working. I need to do some more research, but i think this is an electrical issue - not mechanical

Yes, there are two shift solenoids on the transmission. They are mounted on topside with electrical connectors going to them. I have tested these solenoids and both are working fine. I also did continuity check of all wire feeding them and all was ok. I believe the problem to be with sludge and junk build-up in some ports that cause too much positive pressure to shift until it heats up enough to melt. I have had no time to check into it any further but know that a standard tranny flush may or may not temporarily help but will not fix the ultimate problem. THANX FOR THE REPLY tho... and keep me posted if you resolve anything.

Thank you so much for your reply... Im gonna go to my mechanic to check on what you said...
Last time my mechanic told me that he'll use an AT Fluid that he uses on his off road cars... I dont know about that, but with what he told me it might have a faster heating process, the good thing was, he was honest to tell me that he wasn't sure... Ill keep you posted.. thank you so much...

I own a 94 Teg LS and had the same problem and everytime I went to do mods on my ridge most told me that it be better to wait till it gave out.I hoped it would hold out a bit longer but it did go out and would not shift.I thought it was the solinoids but checked them out and it was internal. Sad I pretty much baby my ride and have everything on it tuned up.
Well I ended up doing a tranny swap a few weeks ago from another teg and it works fine minus the cost to do it. But love my ride none to less. I have read on other boards about this problem and wonder about it maybe over 10 other peeps I chatted to and no real answers give some feed back if you find something.

May want to check what is called the shifter switch located on you shifter column. You will need to remove your centre console to see it.
Same problem occur on my 1990 same model as yours.
Cost of new switch in 2005 was $60 Can
Part number I have for it is 35700-SK7-A01 Swtich Assembly
Hope this helps.
The problem will get worse as time goes too the point that you will also be not able remove your key from the igination because the shifter will not indicate when you are in park.

If the switch is okay then the next item to check is the shifter cable.
The age of the vehicle could have resulted in it stretching or corrision inside

Hi. Guys... It has a been a very long wait for me in dectecting the problem of my car...
Thing that was done...
1. Had it checked to another mechanic... Found out out my Bulb Body stacked-up so i had my tranny removed and checked.. things where going well unil it was installed again... Worse... at first it shifted really or then after a couple of minutes a cracking sound then a sudden stop no movement at all.. the next day tranny was checked then found out the plates where abraded...
2. So, removed the tranny again and changed the plates... after installation and trial ride... no movement at all... no shifting happend...
3. We contacted a Automatic Transmission speciallist from another city had him fly to where i am.... after he checked on it mechanical point of view where all ok that is after he started the engine... just that it doesn't shift.... Solinoid was checked and it is not functioning....
4. Its been 2 months no I till cant find any solenoid
I went to SUZUKI dealer it may take another 2 months b4 it can be delivered.... but the problem is not that its the PRICE: about $375 just for the solenoid... thats too much...
for me and even the speciallist said it is to much....
HELP........ Do you know wher i can get a cheap solinoid? 1990 model 3 doors suzuki escudo... HELP
My thoughts: change my tranny and engine... for one reason nobody here is selling tranny only... it costs about 40,000 pesos that is about $870
: Change my tranmission to manual--- Problem can find any, for my car here in my place
