The steering wheel's locking mechanism can sometimes screw with the ignition swtich. Try jerking the wheel back toward neutral while starting. Also check to see if the tires are aligned.

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.

What causes a 1996 Honda Accord not to shift?

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!
