What to do when the gear is stuck in park on a Honda 2001
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.
Change your fuel sending unit.
Angle Sensor OrShift Motor
Hit it with a big hammer
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.
Heater core is stopped up or thermostat is stuck open.
Adjust or replace the brake light switch.
If you are referring to the brake light then the brake light switch is stuck.
First a question. Were you stepping on the brake when you tried to shift it out of park?
That means that your o2 sensor is stuck lean (bank 1 sensor 1)
It is illegal to repair brakes by an average person take the vehicle to a qualified person.
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.
thermosat could be stuck open or low coolant or heat control cable could be broken
Drivers side footwell, left hand side. Turn on the signal and listen for the clicks if you get stuck.
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
a solenoid is getting stuck, and a bump releases it
The air mix door is stuck in the heat position
Replace the thermostat first. If it is stuck open, engine may not get a chance to warm up.
Low of coolant, thermostat is stuck closed, radiator is clogged, cooling fan is not working, or blown head gasket.
It could be that the shift interlock is not releasing. There is an override switch underneath the steering column or the shifter console.
My 96 Honda Accord is doing the same thing. I am blessed with a certified Honda mechanic next door! I asked him and he told me it was the rear brake sensor. He told me it is located on the driver's side behind the brake pedal. He said you had to remove two bolts and disconnect the old one, then connect the new one and bolt back the same way. He said it was actually a very simple process. He also told me, it will work for a while, but eventually you will get stuck somewhere and you will not be able to get it out of gear. Good luck and I hope it helps you!
