My 2001 Honda Accord's shift lock won't come undone unless I stick a key in the release, my friend says that it looks like my stop light switch might not be working properly, is this why my brake lights don't work and my shift is locking?

Asked by Mar 21, 2007 at 04:04 PM about the 2001 Honda Accord

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

In order to take my car out of park I have to stick a key or a screw driver in the shift lock release.  My brake lights don't work and all my fuses check out fine.  I think that it might be an electrical problem.  Honda says that I have to bring the car in but if it's something that I can replace then I want to do it myself.  Please help.  My mechanic friend told me that the stop light switch might not be operating properly and that I should look into that.  Could this be causing my problem?

I have a 2000 Honda Accord v-6 with 66,000 miles. I cannot get the button on the shift lever to work properly. It will not let me shift out of park.
