SOURCE: 94 honda accord hard to shift from park

You seem to have two (2) separate problems one may be a BAD brake light switch this switch is mounted at the top of BRAKE pedal and control the locking mechanism on gear shifter(safety component-for example if a kid is sitting in seat with vehicle running he/she will NOT be able to put vehicle in gear without stepping on brake). The other problem is a BAD shifter cable-this cable moves the selector in the transmission when you move shift knob. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

SOURCE: My Accord's shifter is stuck in ''Park'' ; Cruise doesn't work now

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

SOURCE: shifter is stuck in park

The shift cable is off the lever on the trans...the dash indicator states drive but the shifter is in park. Look under the drivers side of the trans, next to the catalytic converter(make sure the truck is cooled off) the trans cable will not be attached to the tranny lever-re-attach and you will be able to get it home or to a shop for a repair. This happened to me already, simple fix.

Sounds like your brake interlock is not working. You can manually override it. Check your owners manual, but there should be a small square around the trim around the shifter. Pry up the square and there is a release mechanism to manually release the solenoid. It should be covered in your owners manual how to override it.
I think to replace it you need to take apart the shifter trim.

My 1997 ford taurus wont shift out of park. The shifter seams to be stuck, it wont move. The shifter is on the steering wheel not the floor.


This is often a switch located on the brake pedal lever. The car requires you to press the Brake pedal before shiftting out of Park. You lose the signal when a foot hits or breaks this part. Look under the dash for the part and fix it.

2002 honda accord coupe stuck in park. did this a couple days ago but eventually went into drive. now it will not come out of park after attempting many times and turning off and restarting car.


could be the brake switch. unless the brake is pressed it wont release it from park. you can manually put it in gears, theres a little cirlce or square access hole you gotta pry up and remove the plastic piece then push down with a screw driver

1999 Honda Accord EX won't shift out of park. It is stuck. I think it's the shift lock solenoid but I'm not sure. How do I get the car out of park. I pushed the brake in but the button on the gear shifter...


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
