JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with Honda. The Honda Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: The problem is about 3 months now
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: I took it to the honda dealer and they cant seem to find the problem so i am exploring other options to see how i can solve it
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Honda Mechanic should know about your Honda?

JA: OK. Got it. 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 then connect you two.

when you put the vehicle in nuetral are you able to shift then?

Expert:  mike switzer replied 1 year ago.

then the solenoid inside the shifter assembly has gone bad. honda only sells this as the entire shifter assembly. you may be able to find a used one on and have it shipped to you.

if that will be all i would appreciate if you took a moment to leave me a rating.
