the gear level it wont move to reverse or others gears
JA: Good to know. The mechanics have tons of experience dealing with this sort of thing. How old is your transmission?
Customer: 2004 Honda pilot 3.5L
JA: Ok. We'll get you to one of the go-to transmission guys. Other than the problems you mentioned, how has the car been running?
Customer: ok
JA: Noted. IÂ’ll pass this info along to the mechanic so that he can get you a quick fix. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: I can drive the car due to no shifting
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: maybe
JA: Anything else I can tell the Honda Mechanic before I connect you two?
Customer: not really
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Honda Mechanic about your situation and connect you two.

This may take 2 people but can you tell me if the brake lights are working?

yes
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
yes I have brake lights when I push the brake pedal
Mechanic for Honda: Steve, Honda Mechanic replied 1 year ago
When you push on the brake pedal you should hear a click by the shifter which is the interlock solenoid. If the idle speed is too high it will not unlock. There is a small cover that can be removed by prying it off with a screw driver. In that slot you should be able to insert your key and push down to unlock the shifter. If it still will not move then the cable is most likely bad.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!The interlock solenoid may not be turning on and off because it doesn't see the trans is in park. You may have a range sensor or wiring issue, or it's possible the shift cable is broken or out of adjustment.Are you able to push the vehicle or do you feel a hard mechanical lock?

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
