    My 2002 Accord gets stuck in park. I can use the shift lock release button, but the brake lights don't work and it gets stuch again every time I put it in park. jdsalisbury@yahoo.com

    Do you have trouble putting it into park or other gears when it's working? If so it might be your shifter cable.

    Accord Stuck in Park

    Once I press the Shift Lock Release Button near the shifter, it works perfectly. It comes out of Park and moves easily into other gears.

    I think it is an electrical problem related either to the sensor/switch for the brake pedal or something related to the wiring for the brake lights.

    Thanks - John

    def electrical .
    Look down at the brake pedal for the switch that turns on the brake lights. That also tells the interlock solenoid to release the shift lever. Look for bent or broken bracket for that switch, maybe unplugged wiring, or something like that. Or maybe the switch has just gone bad...



    Get in the car, turn the key on, and push the brade pedal just slightly down. You should hear a sort of clicking sound comming from near the shift lever. then again when you release it. (shift release solenoid). Try it when it does work right so you will know what it sounds like.(it's not loud) Also next time it happens check to see if the brake lights work when you push the brake. (brake light switch).
