Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2004 Honda Civic. It was running fine a month ago. I parked it because the battery was bad. I bought a new one today. It does not start and has no power and the gear shift is stuck in park. I took the battery off bc I thought it was bad but it is good. Not sure whats wrong.

I'm not saying your inept my friend, but did you connect the battery in the wrong polarity? Be sure the battery is charged up and hook positive from starter solenoid to the positive (+) post of the battery and negative/ground to the minus/ground (-) post of the battery. I've hooked up a battery backwards before and I'm a professional mechanic !!!. It's been known to happen. This is the only problem I can think of that would cause the situation you have.

SOURCE: 2006 Nissan X Trail Gear Shift Stuck in Park.

This is not a permanent fix, but you'll be able to shift and drive...this is a "safety feature" when you're break lights aren't working...it may be a fuse issue, i found that didn't help either.

How to drive it while it's "broken" On the top left of your gear shift is circle that looks like a button that is only 3/4 there...see picture (it's circled in red)

pry that off with a key or something... now restart your car, push on the break and at the same time insert a key or something into the now open hole...while pushing down use the other key to shift into reverse. You will need to do the same thing to shift back into park.

Good heavens that is the most inneficient safety feature I've ever heard of. How about instead of leaving the car immoble and keeping you in a scetchy neihborhood to get mugged they just "invent" a warning light notification. grr

The switch on the brake master cylinder is FAMOUS for shorting out. Unplug it and find the blown fuse. In the fuse box under the hood, fuse 1.5 Your truck may be under a recall for that switch, call the dealer with your VIN number and see if it qualifies.

2006 Honda Civic starting then not starting, It's not the battery


i would clean the terminals.there should be no acid or that is a bad sign,and for 100 bucks...get a battery.you should be able to run the stereo for an hour and start the car.
unless you made alot of short trips,the battery should charge up better than that.

Honda car stereo


I won a 2004 Honda Civic.
I had a bad battery and my car would not start. I had someone jump start it and it now has a new battery. The car runs fine but the stereo will not play am/fm or CD's. Regardless of what I do I get an "Error E code"

Please help.
