2003 honda pilot won't shift into drive

When I start my pilot I can't get the gear shift to move into drive until I rev my engine then put my foot onto the break. Then it makes click noise and I can put it into drive. What does that mean??

On my Honda Pilot I experienced the same problem having difficulty changing the gear shifter from park to drive. I drove it to my Honda dealer and the technician explained that the problem was a brake sensor was worn and needed to be replaced. This is because the brakes must be engaged before shifting from park into drive and that the sensor gets worn over time. As I remember, the sensor and labor to install was somewhere between $25 to $50 to replace. It now works like a charm.

I have a 2003 Honda Civic hybrid. For some reason while driving and the engine temp goes half ways the car seems like it won’t go into gear. For example when I stop at a stop sign the car won’t catch gear...


Your transmission might have a broken ban . This ring or spacer is between every gear when they go the gears don't line up. Check your trans mission fluid and make sure to use the proper fluid for your make. If the transmission is going it usually starts shifting into gear hard.. It will be jerky then eventually have a problem with one gear which will lead to all gears .

My honda acorrd shift wont move.


Your brake interlock is not working properly. Do your brake lights work? There is a switch at the brake pedal that tells the computer your foot is on the brake and to let you shift gears. When working properly you can hear the click by your shifter when you step on the brake. If you don't hear the click you need to troubleshoot the system to see which part is not working properly.

Stuck in Park


Put your foot on the brake before you attempt to put it in gear. if that does not work the sensor that stops you from putting it in gear without using the brake has failed... check fuses first.

I have a honda pilot 2004 that will not shift into gear. It just started intermittently 3 days ago


root cause is brake light switch under the steering column / on top of the brake lever... since the brake light switch is broke... it thinks you don't have your foot on the brake and therefore won't let you put it into gear... btw.. your brake lights don't work either...

its intermittant for a while, until the brake switch goes out completely...

a work-a-round is in the manual... you stick your key (or similar object) into a **** in the top of the steering column... (if you've never done this before, there is a little piece of plastic that covers thw hole, and comes out when pried)... pressing something down into the hole allows the gear lever to be moved out of P to the drive gears or N... if you used your key, put it in N, then start the car, then put it in gear....

"check the gear oil" really... and your a "master"
