There is a collar that wraps around your steering column just down behind the keyswitch. Take two hands and in a sort of choke hold turn the collar counterclockwise and you should be able to get full function from the column. In the long run you'll probably have to replace the park/brake lockout cable.

99 honda accord won't shift out of park


Check your brake light function. If that is at fault then your brake light switch may be faulty. If your brake lights are fine then you may have a faulty shift lock solenoid. Some Japanese models of that era have a button or key slot near to the shift lever. If you depress that then it should manually release the lock and allow you to move through the gears, until you move back to 'P' position at which point it will lock again.

Check your brake lights, if the system doesn't get a brake lights on signal it will not release park, it is called the park lock system.

Check to see if your brake lights are working. If not, you have a blown fuse for the brake lights or a bad brake light switch on the brake pedal arm bracket.
When you turn the key to ON, a solenoid energizess and lock the sihft interlock. When you step on the brake to shift out of park, It de-energizes the relay so you can move the sift lever. You should hear a click noise with they key in ON position and you step on the brake pedal. TRy this witohout starting the engine & listen.
The bypass emergency procedure is in your owner manual under sift interlock in the index.
But, usually you turn the key to OFF (first click) and then step on the brake & shift out of park. Then start car in neutral and drive away.
It works because you did not energize the shift lock solenoid, by not turning key to ON.

report results and please rate, thanks.

Also, check the wire going to the brake switch under the dash. It may have just come off.

Most likely are. Check to see if your brake switch performs both functions. Does it do the cruise and the brake/park lock.

My 91 accord had the same problem. There is an electric lock out solenoid under the shift console cover. Remove a couple screws on shifter cover and you will see it. I just bent the tab that contacts the shifter instead of replacing it. Done deal.

Can you hear or feel a "click" in your gear selector when you hit the brakes? If you don't, the solenoid that disengages the lock could be sticking.
