Question about 1994 Honda Accord

Open Question

Put my car in park but now the transmission wont engage, the shifter still moves but car will not

Started with a flat tire got that changed but pulled emergency brake to do that. Tried to leave but when put in reverse the car wouldnt move. Tried to release the E brake again car still wouldnt move. The shifter moves freely into every gear but the car sits as if it was still in park.

    Hi Megan, I was wondering if the transmission engages when you put it in drive.

SOURCE: Auto transmission stuck in drive stick will move

It could be the linkage from the shifting lever to the tranns. This linkage isn't very expensive to have replaced and your shop can tell you if it is indeed the linkage or not.

SOURCE: Car stops moving in reverse gear

Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.

SOURCE: manual transmission shifter will not engage

Sounds to me that the shifter broke, i believe the shifter has a ball end that slips into a pocket in trans. that moves for gear selection and that ball brook off end of shifter. if its got a linkage set up most likely samething either shifting arms came off or shifter broke where linkage rods connect.

2007 500. Shifter broke inside is a plastic. Plunger that has stuck and wont engage park or let my keys come out how do i bypass this


You disconnect it down at the transmission, and move the linkage manually. Doing so manually will engage the "park" position on the trans itself, but the wiring to release the key is connected directly to that shifter. The only way to "bypass" would be (_after_ disconnecting the linkage to the trans), disassemble the entire shifter from the console. You will find a switch. You simply need to engage the switch (or disengage it, depending on what position "park" would put the switch into)... Then you can remove the key. Seems to me it's easier to remove the car battery and simply use spare keys to lock the doors, until you can obtain a replacement shifter. You can even "block" the tires to prevent motion if you don't want to mess with the trans linkage until after you obtain a replacement shifter. (If I was there I'd get that to shift. I've done it before. I just can't explain how to do it. It's a pain-in-the-rear-jury-rig process, but it can be done).

My nissan pulsar 1997 wont come out of park the shifter moves but the car wont change to from park to drive/reverse


Do you feel detent positions as you move the shifter? If it gives little resistance or lacks detents, your shift linkage has come undone (simple fix).
If you feel detent positions but the transmission does not engage, your transmission has failed. Check the fluid... you'll know.

2001 Monte Carlo wont start shift cable issue


Don't know about needing the brake pedal pushed to get INTO park, but it might, as the pedal needs to be pressed to get it OUT of park.

Car wont start and rolls backwards even though it apears to be in park


Sounds like the shifter is stuck in reverse or drive since it will roll.
I would set the parking brake and have someone watch the shift lever on the transmission to see if it and the shifter inside is still connected.

It runs, but wont move


check transmission fluid... if full replace transmission filter (inside transmission) if that fails, then the entire transmission will probably have to be rebuilt or replaced.

97 mazda 626 wont shift from park. release button on side of shifter wont push in. removed knob, plastic rod in center wont move


The 1st thing you need to do is check the brake lights, if they are not wiorking the park lock solenoid doesn't get power and the park lock remains engaged.

Ok I have an 1997 Grand Prix GT and after the transmission died I went over to start the car so the battery wouldn't die. Well too late, so I tried getting the key out and it won't budge at all. Can't even...


if the transmission went out it could very well not let you put it in park therefore you wont get your key out at all. you might try taking off linkage from transmission to see if you can put the shifter in park and turn the key to where you can pull it out
