SOURCE: Gear shift problem

Are your brake lights working? There's a switch above your brake pedal that controls your brake lights and sometimes is tied into the safety switch. If the switch is faulty, then it could be the reason why you have to pump the pedal so fast as it may just engage one of those pumps.

Another issue could be if the switch isn't tied into your safety switch, then there will be a cable running from the top of the brake pedal to the safety switch that will either be located in your steering column or your center console depending where your Gear shift lever is...

SOURCE: 2006 boxter s automatic shift lever is getting

Common cause is shifter inside console being jammed up with coins. If coins have been placed inside ashtray, they are actually NOT secure and they normally fall out inside the console unit and bind up the shifter assembly. I have seen in excess of $70.00 in coins causing this. Rare, but shifter assembly might need replacement or minor adj to lessen tension.

SOURCE: my 2003 honda pilot is difficult to shift into

There could be a number of issues with a Honda Pilot not shifting into drive. In fact, I had this problem with my 2003 Honda Pilot two weeks ago and had to replace my transmission. More than 100,000 2003 Honda Pilots were recalled in 2004 because of a transmission problem -- was your Honda part of that recall? If so, Honda may help you with some of the costs.

If the problem is not with the transmission, I suggest making sure that your steering column is not locked. You will also notice that on the top of the steering column is a small plate. If you remove the plate and press down with a coin, you can unlock the steering column, enabling you to shift into drive.

Hopefully these solutions will help...but be sure to see your auto service shop for more details on your situation.

SOURCE: shift lever won't go to

The first thing i would do is to disconnect the cable at the lever on the ******, next move the lever at the ****** by hand and it should move by hand with little force. if the lever is hard to move then you may have a trany shift rod problem. next with cable removed try to go through the gears with the shifter , the shifter should flow with ease if its hard to move then its the shifter cable or the shifter itself. to find out which one you will need to disconnect cable at sifter and then move the shifter to see if its still tight. if the shifter is tight to move with cable removed then its the shifter but if it moves with ease then you have a bad cable. good day.

My 2007 Honda Pilot will not shift out of park


Check the fluid level in the transmission.

Thought throw out bearing was making noise,replaced bearing and clutch, noise is exactly the same


bad diagnose.? (full clutch mean, with fly pilot bearing NEW?)
parked, are you parked, ? and idling,?
so here are the real tests, if parked. (moving can be CV noise or other things, braking or?)

So you think the TO bearing is bad. ok. , that is always FIRST.
1: i remove all parts connected to the TO bell lever, (SLAVE Cyl)
just unbolt the slave, leave hoses alone. see lever and bellows boot?
the lever is now free in the bell port, for me to play with it by hand.
Hand testing, i do that , because, stuff can fail in all these parts.
I can in fact move the lever too, and fro.
I can take off the boot and see what happening, i can see the insides.
I can see it touch or not touch the TO bearing. ( this is POWER )
The power of sight and actions....

i pull back on the lever such that there is huge play now , from the
lever internal fingers and the bearing, (in neutral idling)
the lever is NOT touching the TO bearing. (see end of post for hints)
no noise now?
yes, no noise, bad TO bearing.
no, i still have noise. (TO is not touching anything now and can not make noise. its some thing else, out comes my $% stethoscope.

ok say the noise is unchanged, touching or not (lever)
the other noise maker.?
is the fly wheel pilot. (there are others, but we look at each 1 by 1 in order.
The pilot can sing (noise) when in gear, clutch pedal to floor.
this cause the fly wheel to go fast and the pilot shaft in the tranny to be
stalled, and puts max stress on the pilot. make noise now?
and increases with RPM , yes, bingo , full clutch was not full clutch was it (ponder that)
ok that tests passes. TO good, pilot good.
we not attack the tranny.
So in Neutral, clutch pedal not depressed.
The transmission front pilot shaft is now spinning
you year noise.
you depress the pedal to the floor, and the noise stops.
yes, bad tranny.

when young i blew a clutch almost every race, seen ever failure possible. all.


hints.
with engine off and slave off.
im playing with the lever, i look down the hole (port)
and see the end of the lever, is it captive in the TO slider ring.
yes, good
no bad install.
yes, is the TO sliding freely in the Pilot boss? or is the TO stuck or sticking, and is hard to retract the TO away from the PP pressure plate fingers? all these checks are hands on deal.
there are many checks to do, before jerking any gear box.

hint 2,
does the noise stop if you start a cold engine with all fan belts.
removed? then start engine and run for 2mins max?
yes, then its not the tranny.
its the P/S pump, A/c Compr. or the water pump or alternator bad.

i wish i was there, in 15min we;d have the source.
do ask questions, I have many .

Key turns and lights come on, but engine does not turn over. Brake peddle is stiff.


Sounds like your starter has gone bad. The designers mounted the starter so low on the Pilot that any bit of liquid splashed up or a driving into a small snowbank could potentially short the starter out. Have it checked out.

1997 s-10 2.2 no a/c 5 speed.hard shift in all gears cold or hot. Rex


Sounds like your clutch is not releasing completely.
Bleed the clutch hydraulics. There is no adjustment. If that does not solve it then:
1) Bad pressure plate (most likely a broken spring) 2) Bad pilot bearing.
The pilot bearing is often overlooked but can cause hard shifting. It is installed into the center of the flywheel or directly into the crankshaft. The very end of the transmission input shaft goes into it. If it drags it will keep the input spinning even with a perfectly released clutch.
If you have to pull the transmission to work on the clutch do not even think about not replacing the pilot bearing.

2003 honda pilot won't shift into drive


On my Honda Pilot I experienced the same problem having difficulty changing the gear shifter from park to drive. I drove it to my Honda dealer and the technician explained that the problem was a brake sensor was worn and needed to be replaced. This is because the brakes must be engaged before shifting from park into drive and that the sensor gets worn over time. As I remember, the sensor and labor to install was somewhere between $25 to $50 to replace. It now works like a charm.

I have a honda pilot 2004 that will not shift into gear. It just started intermittently 3 days ago


root cause is brake light switch under the steering column / on top of the brake lever... since the brake light switch is broke... it thinks you don't have your foot on the brake and therefore won't let you put it into gear... btw.. your brake lights don't work either...

its intermittant for a while, until the brake switch goes out completely...

a work-a-round is in the manual... you stick your key (or similar object) into a **** in the top of the steering column... (if you've never done this before, there is a little piece of plastic that covers thw hole, and comes out when pried)... pressing something down into the hole allows the gear lever to be moved out of P to the drive gears or N... if you used your key, put it in N, then start the car, then put it in gear....

"check the gear oil" really... and your a "master"

I have a 2004 honda pilot that will not go into gear. it started intermittently 3 days ago.


The problem sounds like the shift linkage has come loose or broken. This is what the shift lever uses to make the transmition move into the gear you put it in.
