Default Problems with the Transmission Range Censor

My '07 Suzuki Forenza recently ran into problems with starting. It turns over, but won't start. On the digital display that says which gear my car is in, the (P, R, N, and D) are all displayed at once, whilst flashing. I came here to see what was the cause and I found a person having the same problem. Long story short, I replaced the Transmission Range Censor but it's still giving me the same problem. When the problem first happened, I started the car, shifted into drive, and when I let off the break to go, it stuttered then shut off.

Would this be a problem with the wiring to the Transmission Range Censor or something completely different?

Thanks for any help!

Im not sure if the sensor has a fuse, but check the fuse box, check every fuse if you can. Even the fuse box inside...i doubt its a wiring problem

I checked my fuses, and all of them were fine, but when I hooked up my testing light to the battery I found that my Ignition coil isn't receiving power, but it is grounded out. I'm not sure what is causing the coil to not receive power.

Is the coil stock? ever replaced? That sounds like a bad coil, Check out this video, it will help https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSWN1M8Hoqo ...

So it turned out that it was my ECM fuse. (I didn't know about the ones inside the car.)
I replaced it, and it solved the problem. But a few days later, the same problem happened, and now, whenever I replace the fuse, it instantly blows it again. I'm not sure if there's just a short in the car, or if it's the ECM.

I can't seem to find where the ECM is in the car. Would anybody know where it is? Or what might be causing the fuse to blow instantly?

Thanks!

What you need is a wiring diagram, the heater circuit for the O2 is on that fuse and tend to short on the exhaust..

Never heard of ECU issues..
