There are a couple of reasons why a 1998 Honda Accord may be stuck in park. The immobilizer system may need to be replaced or the transmission is having problems.
i got a Honda accord 1998 model and it will not get of park
First a question. Were you stepping on the brake when you tried to shift it out of park?
My 1998 Honda Accord LX was getting stuck intermittently in Park. I found that the switch that turns on the brake light when you press the bake pedal was going out. This switch is $32.00 at any Honda dealer and most importantly YOU can change it yourself. Ironically, that same switch activates the gear shifter pin that lets you take it in and out of gear.

That happens to quite a few accords of that year. Hope this link helps:autoforums.carjunky.com/.../99_Honda_accord_automatic_shifter_stuck_in_park_P50669
Park the truck further away from the Honda.
look in the owners manual they tell you how to release it also you need to step on the brake to release it it is a safety thing
please remember to always have your foot on the brake.. and your vehicle in park this is part of honda's safety interlock system.
check it while its on and in park
You must press and hold the brake pedal to take the shifter out of park.
Find the Shifter Lock Override Slot. It'll be under a cap. Remove the cap, push down on the lever inside with a nail file or something, and shift into neutral.
Make sure the accelerating cable in the engine compartment is not too tight.
