Ok open the operators guide in the glove box, and it tells you.
this FEATURE is called park lock out.
and there is a bypass button on the console,stated in same book.
well in the USA car, you never said what country so....?????
this brake park lock out is on all cars here with A/T.
my M/T has no such thing. manual tranny.
ARE YOU on flat ground? i cant see it.
if no and wheels are against a curb , do as the oper.. guide tells you.
wiggle the steering wheel, to get it unlocked, then off the curb
and the pray the park pawl can unlock inside the tranny
it states , on hills, set the EBrake HARD first the Park LAST
if not the pawl can jam (i have video... ask)

did you lose the book
lets get that first. there are 5 class Civics.
ill guesss at SEDAN and 3 sub classe, DX, etc.

open the book and turn to page. 1997 , the waY BACK MACHINE.
STEP ON BRAKE PEDAL
PUSH The shifter side button and FAIL
it says if fail read page 108
so we go there. the magic bypass key slot.
be happy, the new car here, its now illegal.... that nice bypass.
now you can drive like back in 1955.
or fix the park lock out feature, its busted.
the FSM covers that. ask for it , if DIY.

Replaced transmission with a used one and now it will not start. The indicator on the shift column does not show the gear that has been selected.


The shift cable linkage is likely the culprit. It won't start because the car cannot tell what gear it is in (it needs to be in park or neutral for the starter to operate).

My 1999 Pontiac Sunfire GT 2.4L Automatic Gear Selector is broken


you car likely thinks its stuck in reverse, which it may be... even if you can roll it. you'll need to find a way to either get it into park or neutral, normally this can be done by the actual linkages under the shift console or from underneath the car.

I have a 2000 metro the trans shifts hard when you first start up from 2nd to 3rd. But after that it seams not to shift down from 3rd no matter how many times you spot and go again.


Before guessing at transmission problems, check the fluid level (car warmed up, engine running in Park on level ground) and have the PCM scanned for trouble codes FIRST.
Shift suddenly become very hard. When going from park to either reverse or drive it slams into gear. 1-2 and 2-3 shifts are also harsh. All gears seems to work. Problem may be intermittent: Check TPS for smooth electrical response. If the response is jumpy or erratic at all, replace TPS.
Thank you for using fixya and keep us posted.

Gear Shift gets stuck on Maxima 2001


The gear shift electrical relay or module inside it is not reading the signal to release. You need to have the electronic relay or module repaired or the gear shift assembly replaced.
