I have a 2000 Acura TL 3.2 Automatic.

Last night when I got home from work, I went to parallel park. As I was trying to shift from D4 to R, the shifter wouldn't shift into P N or R.

I pushed the car into the spot & put emergency brake on.

So now...the car is in P because I used a screwdriver to push the button on the side down. But the dashboard reads D2. I can't start the car. In order to get it out of P, I have to push the button down on the side with a screwdriver. Once I have it out of PNR, I can shift it all over from D5 to D1 but the dash only changes when it goes from D1 to D2 and vice versa. I can't get it from D5 to PNR with the shifter either.


This is really strange. I can't start the car because the dash thinks its in D2. My brake lights work.

Has anyone ever dealt with this???

Something's broken here obviously....if it wouldn't come out of D4, most likely the shift cable. The shift cable is connected to the gear position switch on the transmission.

The next step is to crawl underneath and see what's amiss.
I'll have to get under there and check it out. Thanks.
