Question about Honda Pilot
Root cause is brake light switch under the steering column / on top of the brake lever... since the brake light switch is broke... it thinks you don't have your foot on the brake and therefore won't let you put it into gear... btw.. your brake lights don't work either...
its intermittant for a while, until the brake switch goes out completely...
a work-a-round is in the manual... you stick your key (or similar object) into a **** in the top of the steering column... (if you've never done this before, there is a little piece of plastic that covers thw hole, and comes out when pried)... pressing something down into the hole allows the gear lever to be moved out of P to the drive gears or N... if you used your key, put it in N, then start the car, then put it in gear....
"check the gear oil" really... and your a "master"

The problem sounds like the shift linkage has come loose or broken. This is what the shift lever uses to make the transmition move into the gear you put it in.
