Q: Tuff time getting my car out of the Park gear on 2002 Acura CL

I am having a tuff time getting my car out of the Park gear in my 2002 Acura CL. It takes about a minute or 2 of wiggling and pumping on my brakes before the gear unlocks out of the park position. What is wrong?
This sounds like a brake-shift interlock issue. It could the switch on the brake pedal or possibly the solenoid in the shifter. I have also heard a worn key can contribute to this issue. If you have a spare key (that wasn't used often), try that first and see if anything changes. Otherwise, some diagnosis may be needed. Some cars are also sensitive to coffee or other liquid spills onto the shifter. hope this helps!
