HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

This sounds more of an issue with either the shift interlock solenoid or the shifter assembly itself, but could just need the shifter cable adjusted. I have attached the directions for that, which needs to be done

I already adjusted the cable, adjusted the range switch. This is definitely electrical problem. Please note that cruise control
Light on the dash not coming up on the dash until we get the D light on.

HI,
Ok, I didnt see it mentioned where you adjusted the cable.
I suspect either the shifter interlock solenoid or the shifter assembly itself, which need to be tested with a scan tool to confirm which one is at fault

I can switch shift interlock solonod from another good working 2003 Honda odeyssy. Which solonoids you want me to switch? I need locations.

HI,

I have attached a diagram of its location - at backside of the shifter assembly. you have to remove the shifter assembly to remove and replace the solenoid

HI,
You did not mention the fact that you had already switched that part. I will opt out at this point as you dont seem to be very forthcoming in stating everything tried to this point, which makes it difficult at best to try and help.
If another expert wishes to help, they will reply here. Do not reply back until they do so, or it locks it to me and prevents another expert from helping
