Check your brake lights, if they are not working then the shift will not unlock.

Cannot shift out of park. Have drove this car for 10 years and this has never happened!


Set the emergency brake.

Locate the shifter lock override slot located on the shifter console near the shifter lever. Normally, the slot is plugged with a small plastic cap.

Remove the plastic cap covering the override slot and insert a key, nail file or similarly shaped object into the slot and push down.

While pushing down, depress the brake pedal, grab the shifter and push in the shifter lock button located on the shifter as you normally do and then move the shifter to the Neutral position. With the brake pedal still depressed, start the engine with the shifter in the Neutral position.

Engaged Shift Lock Override; shifter knob is now completely free floating and won't re-engage.


Not familiar with this car but the service manual may give you some help. Most libraries have subscriptions to online automotive service manuals for almost any year, make and model of car, motorcycle, or whatever. If you have a library card, some will give you the u/n and p/w so you can access them from your home computer, if not then you will have to go to your local branch to get access, but it is free!

Where is the fuse for the gear shifter on a 1997 Honda Accord Station Wagon EX


First, what is exactly happening? as there is no fuse for Gear shifter.

Is the car not going out of park? If so, then check the Brake switch. Brake has to be depressed which operates the brake switch sending signal to the gear shifter to unlock so it can be shifted. If Brake switch is okay then only a mechanical obstruction is preventing the shifter operation. For this you will have to take of the cover on the gear shifter to see what is fouling.

Shift lock


It could possibly be a bad electrical connection or poor connection with the transmission. Did the mechanic get any error codes?

Can't shift car out of park


There is a shift lock release lever located just to the left of the gear shift. Pop off the plastic cover, and then use a flathead screwdriver or similar instrument to push down and release the lever. While you are holding that down, you will be able to override the lock and shift out of park. Then release the lever.

Can't shift gear


check the fuse for your brake lights, check your brake light switch. If the brake lights don't go on your car will not shift out of park. The shifter should have an override button. look for an access hole (cover) near the shifter, pop the cover off and push a pencil down there to shift. check your owners manual for specific information on the use of the override button

When car is in park and you press the break the gear shifter will not move.


There is a shift lock release lever you can use to override the lock. It is located to the left of the gear shift, and it's covered by a small plastic cover that you can pop off. Use a flathead screwdriver (or something similar) to push the lever in, and then you can shift out of park.

Can not put gear leaver into any gear automatic


There is a shift lock override button under a tab/cover on the shift console. Remove the tab and press the button down with a screwdriver to shift out of Park.

To fix the cause pf the problem, you will need to check the shift lock fuse, the brake pedal sensor, and the ignition switch.

Find the fusebox under the dash. The fuses are labeled on the fusebox door.

The brake pedal sensor may need adjustment or its switch may be bad and needs replacing. Ditto for the ignitions switch.
