I have a 1992 Honda Civic Pro 1.5. I have had no problems with it before but the other day I couldnt get it out of park, it was locked up. I noticed there is a key space next to the gear stick and if I push my key in and hold it down I can move it into nuetral and then take the key out and start the car. I cant see anyway of unlocking it without doing this. Is there a way of unlocking it permantely, I cant see any buttons or anything I could have pushed.

Do you have multiple keyless entries for this car? If so does the other one still work, perhaps it just needs to be reprogrammed. Take it to your nearest Honda dealer and they should be able to get it working again. If it is constantly locking and unlocking, the computer could be getting a signal from the remote which would indicate a reprogramming is needed too.
I am not sure what model Honda you have, but on both of the 1998 Honda Civic LX models I own , their locking/ unlocking problems were caused by a Power door lock control module, which is located in the drivers door, behind the inside door panel. There is a troubleshooting process you can go thru, by jumpering various wires to test each door, but if everything isn't working, and you have checked your fuse for the lock circuit, then the Power door lock control module is the most likely suspect.
Try removing the trim around the selector and see what is jamming it - there's usually a brake interlock that keeps the car in Park until the brake pedal is held down (this activates a switch on the brake pedal arm, which disengages the lock). The way I see it, you either have a faulty brake pedal switch, or the lock itself is jammed. Look in there and see if it's something that shouldn't be there - if the shifter is being held in place by a device that is part of the car, chances are the brake pedal interlock switch failed. If you have a pretzel or something in there, well, there's your solution:)
