Question about 1997 Honda Civic
THAT IS ALL THERE IS TO IT - NOTHING ELSE SEEMS TO BE THE MATTER, BUT IT WILL NOT SHIFT!
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.
