Question about 2000 Honda Civic
Car is parked in garage. Brake lights work. Solenoid fires when I press the brake. I've taken off the paneling and watched as I push with a screwdriver through the hole next to the shifter which has the same effect as pressing the brake. In accessory mode and while the car is running, I've managed to rock the car back and forth while pressing down on the release, but I can not get it to shift out of park at all. The entire unit just shifts with the pressure. It seems to be locked from somewhere below the floor. I did clean my car last night and engaged the hand brake so I could clean the paneling beneath it easier, but I've released that (many times now with a lotta force).
Before was it hard to shift.Is the car store for a while I had change few seize cable

SOURCE: shift lock parking break
ck if your brake lights are working, if not, ck the fuse. if fuse is good and brake lights work, could be problem with solenoid not unlocking the lever, there should be a bypass so you can get it into gear (small slot near shifer, put your key in there to release shifter)

See a honda dealer or remove console to get to shifter solenoid. Also adjust cable to get key out of ign. We always would pull shifter back and push it foward firmly into park to get them to release key.

Testimonial: "You are right! I finally gave it a really good push and pull left and right and it worked. It's not fixed, but at least I can get to work! Thanks!"
Yes most likely, the brake switch also sends power to a solenoid to unlock the shift lever. If the trans works fine once you get it out of park, the trans itself is fine

If you press the Break pedal and the shift button does not engage, Your Solenoid did not activate to release it out of park. either the: solenoid is out - Bent levers - Solenoid harness disconnected - Break activation wire may be damaged. this piece is easy to replace as it sits on the right side (passanger side) of the shift lever. remove center console cover to access the soleniod which is held on by two 10mm nuts. and a C- clamp
