Question about 1990 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Automatic transmission linkage problem

The transmission worked perfectly well until yesterday.  The shifter is in the park position but the transmission is in drive.  You can start the car but if you remove your foot from the brake pedal the car wants to move forward. Now I am headlong into the driveway and I cannot move the shifter out of the park position.

You need to raise the hood and shift it manually into park and then tighten the bolt for the linkage.sounds like it may have vibrated loose.the linkage will be on top of the transmission

I have a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan that will not shift out of park. The shifter moves perfectly and it goes into Rev, nuet and drive perfectly but it will not release the park. What could cause that?


Do you feel the shifter click when shifting or is it smooth. Clicking would be an internal transmission problem. Smooth would be a broken shifter cable.

Can't get shifter into park


sounds like the parking pawl in the transmission or the manual shift valve is sticking or the manual linkage in the trans is bent. youll have to have a technician drop the trans pan and observe these parts with an assistant shifting the lever in the car back and forth. If the PRNDL light for park is not lit, then the vehicle is not completely in park. You can start and vehicle with the lever in NEUTRAL to get you anywhere.

I have a 97 Honda Civic EX auto, when I try to shift from park to reverse or park to drive it is very difficult and hard to shift and the lights do not light up on the console to indicate what gear you are...


indications from your description is that the shifter ( cable or mechanical ) is loose or out of adjustment and is jamming on the light position switch
If it cable , then have it checked out as with a 1997 model , there is a good chance that the cable is fraying or jamming and is the cause of the problems
if it is all mechanical linkage , then check for worn out bushes or rubber sections
you state that when gear it drives perfectly so by that statement , there is no transmission problems just selecting problems

1999 Regal GS -stalls, starting trouble, won't shift now


the batt is suspect...take it to autozone, or other place, they'll check it out free......the shifting out of park is a seperate issue, the pawl for the steering/shifter is not working properly....did you notice if the steering wheel would turn when the shifter is stuck?....probably not....when this happens try to turn the wheel back and forth-not hard but not gently- a little graphite dust sprayed in there would help.......hope this helps you out

94 Camaro V6 transmission in reverse on all shifter settings


check to see if your shift cable is stretched or broken, also look on the transmission itself to make sure that the lever where the cable attaches to is not bent. also you can check under the shifter itself and make sure the linkage there is all ok. it sounds like your shifter cable is the cause for your problem.

if the cable is ok and you can see the shift lever move on the transmission than the next likely cause would be the valve body in the transmission.

Transmission shifter is stuck in 'P' on my 2002 F150 Fx4 Supercrew, why?


You need to check the connection on the front of the master cylinder. This is the brake disengage for the cruise control. If it is wet this is the problem of the short. You need to replace the unit. This was a recall by ford. Now check the #15 fuse (5a) this controls the brake interlock switch. When you put the fuse in you will hear a click. This means you can now take the truck out of park. The lights will come on and the windows will work. If the windows don't work check the other fuses. By pulling them and replacing them made the windows work for me.

My automatic 1994 honda accord goes in gear but doesnt drive. look at details


If the jerks that stole your radio forced the shifter back, the linkage to the transmission (cable) is probably screwed up, or the shifter too. I assume you had no trouble before this incident. Also check the trans fluid level (warm up car and check according to instructions in your owners manual), although I'm sure it's screwed up from the morons that stole the radio. sounds like a job for the dealer or a body shop. the cable is probably out of sync w/ the shifter. Do park or reverse, or low gears work?. You may be able to save a few $ by checking the auto junkyard for the parts you need. good luck! countrycurt0
