Sorry to tell you but it may be dieing.... check the color of the fluid in the transmission if it is an auto... usually do this when the bans are starting to go... first you will have the problem you got now then it will not go above what ever gear the ban broke at... when it tries it will be like neutral.... don't waist your money trying to fix it.... gets real expensive... that is unless you get a wreaked spare and a dam good friend... front wheel drives do not like being slammed side wall flat into a hard surface on the passenger side. But the most common problem is it is just it's time

1993 honda accord started off not shifting into park then not into park or reverse or neutral and now just drive. Is that a shifter linkage issue? Can the cable simply be changed out to correct the...

the first thing to do is check the linkage by having someone shift the gears while you look at the cable on the transmission. if the cable moves at the gear selector and at the transmission then the problem is not linkage. it could be your TCM is not turning the shift solenoids on to apply the correct gear in the transmission.
