1999 Honda Accord Q&A
1999 Honda Accord Question: Which part is responsible for unlocking the gear shifter?
I'm unable to move the shifter out of Park. The brakes are operational, but the lights don't come on. The turn signals and reverse lights do work. I checked the fuses and they seem fine. I found online someone mention a brake sensor, but couldn't find that part in the estimator here. Any help would be greatly appreciated. - cgibson
There is a shift interlock cable that unlocks when the brake pedal is pressed. - Tomiko
Check the 'brake pedal position switch'. It is located under the drivers side at the brake pedal lever. Unplug and jump the connector , if the brake lights work , replace the switch. be sure it's adjusted properly. If that doesn't fix it , then other problems could be either wiring or the PCM , which would require more detailed diagnostics. - ziptie12
