Question about 1997 Honda Odyssey
I have a 97 Honda Odyssey & the gear lever is stuck in park?? I noticed when the brake pedal is pushed down my rear brakelights don't work but after a couple of tries the brakelights comes on & the gear lever comes out of park?? Could this be a failure in the trans computer?? Can someone help me out on how I can check this out or how to fix it?? No warning lights shows up on the dash when this happens but the problem seems to be getting worse help me pleaseeeee
This is because there is a switch on the brake pedal that is connected to a solinoid that lock the gear selector in park .
you need to A : check the switch on the brake pedal is working this may only need to adjust the distance between the pedal stop and the pedal its self.
B: The solinoid on the gearbox should click when the switch on the brake pedal is closed or opened
if not the solinoid on the gear box could be sticking or could be faulty
hope this helps
