Question about 1999 Honda Passport

Shifting lever doesnt want to come out of park

I have an auto transmission,when I push button on the shifting lever to take it from park to another gear,it doesnt respond right away. It takes me several pushes of the button before it will respond and let me move shifting lever. Unsure if there may be a bad switch or what is causing this problem. Any suggestions as to the cause and remedy would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

This is a problem that occurs in many Honda's. Inside the shifter is a cable that is connected to the button to release the shift lock so you can shift into a gear. This cable become frayed and can eventually brake, which makes it hard to shift. The only solution is to replace the shifter either with a new OEM from Honda (very expensive) or get a good used one from your local recycle yard.

How to fix the shift cable





  1. Position the steering column transmission shift lever to PARK (P).
  2. Apply the parking brake.
  3. Raise the vehicle. Refer to Vehicle Lifting.




  1. Position the transmission range select lever to PARK (P). Rotate the range select lever clockwise until it reaches the full mechanical stop position.




  1. Slide the black retaining clip forward on the range select lever cable end. This will allow the white lock button to be pushed out.




  1. Push the white lock button on the range select lever cable end out. This will free the metal core adjust body which is inside the cable end. Do not push the white lock button completely out.
  2. Inspect the metal core adjust body on the cable end for dirt or debris that may restrict the travel. Remove any debris by washing the cable end, the metal core adjust body, and the white lock button with soap and water. If the travel of the metal core adjust body remains restricted after the cleaning, replace the cable assembly.
  3. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Ensure that the parking brake is applied.
  5. Turn ON the ignition switch.




  1. Move the transmission shift lever from PARK (P) to 1 and back to PARK (P) ten times.




  1. Place the steering column transmission shift lever in the Park (P) position.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
  3. Raise the vehicle. Refer to Vehicle Lifting.




  1. Position the transmission range select lever to PARK (P). Rotate the range select lever clockwise until it reaches the mechanical stop position.




  1. Push in the white lock button in order to secure the core adjuster body inside the range select lever cable end.




  1. Slide the black retainer clip rearward over the cable end until it covers the white lock button. Lock the clip over the cable end.
  2. Lower the vehicle.
  3. Turn ON the ignition switch.
  4. Ensure that all the transmission shift light positions (P. R. N. D, 3, 2, 1) engaged and illuminate. If you cannot perform this task, repeat the cable adjustment procedures.
  5. Ensure that the engine starts in PARK (P) and in NEUTRAL (N) positions only. If the engine does not start in PARK (P) and in NEUTRAL (N), the Park/Neutral Position Switch may need adjustment.
  6. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK.
  7. Ensure that the ignition key can only be removed with the transmission shift lever in the PARK (P) position.
  8. Start the engine and check the vehicle transmission shifting. The range select lever cable is properly adjusted if the steering column shift light positions are the same as the transmission engagements.

On two occasions our '99 Volvo S80 locked in park. Gear shifting lever would not go into Drive. Both times it was parked on an incline. By pushing (rocking ) foreword several times the shifting le


Sounds like a part called a parking "Pawl" is hanging up. You could try to park the way they show you in driving school, with the rear of the tire against the curb when the car is facing uphill. Theory is that the tire will chock the vehicle against the curb as a bumper stop and prevent rolling backwards. This will minimize pressure on the inside of the transmission parking pawl.

You can go to aboutautomobile.com and search for "Consumer complaints" or Recalls and enter your vehicle info. Then see if others are having problems like yours.

I have a 2006 charger hemi, the gear stuck in park. How do I get it ou of park


its might have something to do with your brake lights. if the computer doesnt sense the brake lights come when u hit the pedal it wont release the car from park. to temporarily get your car out of park, remove the coin tray that on the side of the shifter, just give it a good tug, ull see a pink lever the console, just push the pink level while shifting the handle and you'll be good to good. fyi u only need to push that pink lever when shifting from park.

I CAN NOT SHIFT THR TRANS INTO NUTRAL SO I CAN TOW IT BEHIND MY MOTOR HOME. IT WILL SHIFT INTO 2H, 4H, 4L


Shifting to NEUTRAL
To shift the transfer case to NEUTRAL, first make sure
the vehicle is parked so that it will not roll:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Start the vehicle.
3. Connect the vehicle to the towing vehicle.
4. Put the transmission in NEUTRAL (N) or have
the clutch pedal pressed for vehicles with
manual transmission.
5. Shift the transfer case to 2HI.
6. Simultaneously press and hold the 2HI and
4LO buttons for 10 seconds. The red NEUTRAL
light will come on when the transfer case shift to
NEUTRAL is complete.
7. Shift the transmission to REVERSE (R) for one
second, then shift the transmission to DRIVE (D)
for one second or FIRST (1) for vehicles with
manual transmission.
8. Turn the ignition to OFF.
9. Place the transmission shift lever in PARK (P) or
FIRST (1) for vehicles with manual transmission.
10. Release the parking brake prior to towing.

************************

Shifting Out of NEUTRAL
To shift out of NEUTRAL:
1. Set the parking brake and apply the regular
brake pedal.
2. Start the vehicle with the transmission in PARK (P)
or FIRST (1) for vehicles with manual transmission.
3. Press the button for the desired transfer case position
(2HI, 4HI, AUTO 4WD or 4LO).
4. Put the transmission in NEUTRAL (N) or press the
clutch pedal for vehicles with manual transmission.
5. Shift the transmission lever to the desired position.
After the transfer case has shifted out of NEUTRAL,
the red light will go out.
6. A re-engagement sound is normal when shifting out
of NEUTRAL.

Will not move into park lever pushs hard then goes back to reverse


Try shifting into Neutral and attempt to Start the car.
If this works, there is probably a problem with the cable and/or cable connection/shifting bracket to the transmission.
Inspect that area to ensure nothing is impeding the cable/cable connection/shifting bracket, or interfering their operation.
When shifting, is the Indicator "on" or to the left or right of the appropriate selection (PRNDL)? If the indicator is to the left or right of them there is a good possibility that you need to:
1. Loosen the gear cable connection screw, located on top of the transmission and connected to the transaxle operating lever.
2. Pull the tranaxle operating lever = shifting bracket going into the transmission - towards the front of the car. While holding the bracket to the front (Park) position tighten the cable connection screw to 70 in-lbs.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me on FixYa.com!

Shifting lever doesnt lock


Likely the shift detent mechanism is broken. It's inside the unit and can be reached by removing the trans pan. It should be just inside where the shift lever goes through the case.
