    Got your email asking for more details on the 1998 honda accord that is stuck in park. we tried the rocking thing and that didn't work. are there any fuses or switches that could be checked.? I really can't afford to tow the car anywhere.else.

    Already found the swith to disengage shifter. Its located under the shifter so you have to pull all the trim work and press the button. We put a screw in there so we don't have to keep pushing the button every time we use the car. The only difference will be that you don't have to hold the brake pedal down to shift into gear. Thanks anyway, I figured it out myself.

    Have you tried rocking it to disengage as I suggested? Just sometimes a person places the shifter into the parking lever location right before the car is completely stoped and sometimes that puts preasure on the parking pawn inside the transmission which does not allow a person to move the lever w/o removing that mechanical preasure. Just a thought.Just advice from the ether world that cost nothing to try; May be taken with a grain of salt.

Ok it could be a number of things 1. faulty transaxle, 2. faulty clutch disc, 3. release lever faulty, or 4. pressure plate bad also check and see if you have a emergency release for you gear shift its normally located by the gear shift

Parking lamps and tail lamps blows fuse, dash lights don't work


First thing I would check is all frame grounds... like the negative battery cable and the grounding strap on the passenger side motor Mount to the wheel hub. In any electrical system, lights draw more current than anything (except the battery) when you turn them on... Check the grounds!

My 98 Accord wont go into park.


wiggle the steering wheel. (read the operators guide, it tells you this fact)
there are 2 functions,
park lock , lockout.
and key lock.
do you have the FSM for your car? yes, then it covers all that.

also the same guide tells you, there is park lockout bypass switch
in the console. ever see that?
it allows you to shift into or out of park when the park lock fails.
for emergency usage.
this bypass assumes the owner read the booklet in glove box
and knows to use his/her brakes, while doing this bypass.
not running over the kids or pets. RTM

be safe !

2007 ford f-150 wouldn't shift out of park until I pulled it really hard with both hands


this is normal on hills.
read the operators guide. (The A/T blues) (jack car wheel up, to free it, any rear wheel if cant move out of part)
People in San Francisco know this all so well, at the curbs.

or someone put car into park moving
and bent the parking pawl in the the tranny , oops,. that is damage.

Park the car on a hill facing which direction? To bleed the master that is. Thanks


The car should be on level ground, make sure you bench bleed the master cyl. before installing it. or you might be working harder than you really want.
Are you bleeding each wheel or just at the master cyl. brake line fittings ?

Car wont shift into gear. Gear shift moves but gears don't


It sounds like the lever from the gear shifter has come loose. I would first look at the shifter from under the car. You can also remove the boot (or console) from inside the car and check the linlage. Most linkage is held on by a small clip or cotter pin and somethime they don't stay in place anad the linkage slides off the arm..

The ignition key won't come out of igtion,without disconnecting b


Some cars require you to lock the wheel prior to taking the key out of the ignition as an anti theft measure. Also, (not sure if its auto or standard) is car is not all the way in park, you can't remove the key. I hope this helps with your problem.

Is it on a hill? If so have someone rock it up hill as you try to take it out of park with the key on and engine off.

Most honda have a Shift Lock hole next to the shifter, looks like a key hole, put the key in the hole and the shifter should be able to release.
