Question about 1996 Honda Accord
My ignition on my 96 Accord won't turn at all. Battery is fine. Car apears in to be in Park. Used shift lock release to take out of park and put it back in. Can roll car in neutral, car stays put in Park.
When I got in the car, the steering wheel was not locked and it would not turn. I turned the steering utnil it locked, still no good. Have put it in and out of park. Transmission seems to know it is in park. The ignition doesn't.
Also noted, there is no beep when the door is open with the keys and there should be. Any ideas?
Check to see if your brake light switch is bad. When you have this problem ask someone to check to see if your brake lights are working when pressing on the brake peddle. If they are not working, then your brake switch is bad. It is located on the floor board. When this goes bad you cannot put into drive. Hope this helps.

You can try a combination of things, one suggestion i have is to turn the wheel in any free motion it can, and turn the key, or PUSH the key into the ignition and try it that way, or there is a little push button to get the key turning.

The automatic transmission shift lock control switch.
The park/neutral position switch.
With the ignition in the ON position, battery positive voltage is supplied to the park/neutral position switch. When the transmission is in the PARK position the contacts in the park/neutral position switch are closed. This allows current to flow through the switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The circuit continues through the normally-closed switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is permanently grounded. This energizes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid, locking the shift linkage in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open, causing the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid to release. This allows the shift lever to move from the PARK position.
Park Lock Solenoid
The park lock solenoid is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the key is in the OFF position. The key must be in the RUN position to release the park lock solenoid. The system consists of the park lock solenoid. With the ignition in the ON position, voltage is supplied to the park lock solenoid. The park lock solenoid energizes through a permanent ground unlocking the shift lever. With the ignition in the OFF or ACCY position the park lock solenoid de-energizes and locks the shift lever in the park position.
Shift Lever Does Not Move with Brake Pedal Depressed
DEFINITION: Transmission shift lever will not move out of the PARK position with the ignition ON and the brake pedal pressed.
