Q: How do I get the gear shift to move out of park on 1994 Honda Civic

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
As I try to change the gears, the shift will not move from park to reverse unless you put the key in the shift lever releaser.

When you have the key switched on to the run position and press the brake pedal so you hear a click from the area of the gearshift lever. There is a shift lock solenoid that prevents you from taking the shift lever out of Park until the brake pedal is pressed with the key on to the run position. If you don't hear a click each time you press down the pedal check the fuses. I'll check the wiring diagram if it is not obvious.
