Question about 1997 Acura CL
Sounds like the connections to your park/neutral switch on the side of the auto transmission are loose. push on and pull off the connector a few times to refresh the connection. If the pins are badly corroded treat them to a very fine sand paper.

Do the brake light work? No brake lights and it won't shift out of park. Check your fuses and check for loose wires. Check your brake light switch. If that has failed, you won't be able to get out of park. The other one if the shift lock solenoid which is in the shifter assembly. The brake shift interlock switch prevents the car being shifted from park unless the brake pedal is depressed. Try to apply power/ground to the proper wires & see if it will activate.. If it does, then the problem is between the brake light switch & that solenoid. Could be the wires or the switch.Make sure the shifter cable is still held down in place at the shifter assembly & under the hood. It is the interlock switch that you hear/feel clicking.It is for the prior generation but may still apply.
Good Luck and hopefully you soon will be on the road again...;-)
