Thanx Guys :) Mike Pardee~Patrick~Matt lon~CritterDawg

Thanx for all your help I do appreciate it. Now my Honda is doing some wierd shyt~When I do run the a/c I listen to the engine like idle up and down like
when a pump is running or something~I DO always watch my temp guage just in case~But another thing my car is doing is getting stuck in Park. When I park the car and go into the house and come back out and start it~put my foot on the brake to take it out of gear it acts like I dont have my foot on the brake and doesn't budge out of park? So I have to turn the damn thing off and stick my key in that "shift release slot" and pull it out of park in to Nuetral and start it~~Oh wow I cant believe I might be having transmission problems~something I really cant afford :( I also noticed sometimes when I'm driving the car will like wait to switch into 3rd or 4th depending on where I'm driving but it only seems to do that once in awhile but I just dont want my transmission to "drop" or just stop working all together~Thanx for any help you give :) ~~~~Wendi

I just fixed that problem the other day on my CR-V . . . It's can happen to most models of Honda (sometimes gets worse in COLD weather). The overall length of the shifter cable is set too short and here's a TSB about a recall, but it shows how the adjustment is done. It's for Civic, but it's the same:

It took one minutes to adjust it, since I had the lower cover off my steering column. Yours might be in the console, depending on which model we're talking about.

My wife's 2003 Odyssey had the same problem on shifting out of park. Check the brake light switch for the reason your car won't shift out of park. The switch activates your brake light when you press your brake but on our Odyssey it also keeps you from shifting out of park if it doesn't make the correct contact. If you have the same type of switch try cleaning it with a small brush as dust can mess it up. On ours you can remove the switch easily if it does need to be replaced but once cleaned it shifted out of park.
My wife had the problem while I was at work so I had to diagnose it over the phone. Before I told my wife to clean it I had her call the dealer to get a new part under warranty and I would pick it up on the way home. They said she had to bring it in and they would install it. How do you get a car to the dealer when you can't put it in reverse to get it out of the garage??????
