    Default shift lock release issue

    I found reference to the "shift lock release" problem on page 209 of the 2002 CRV manual. However my problem is that I could not change the lever out of D to P. I could move down from D to 2 or 1, but not above the D to N, R or P.
    It happened once after coming down a steep hill with the shifter in 2. I left it in 2 for about 500 meters, then parked car and attempted to park transmission.

    Anyone else had this problem?

    I assume a dealer visit is due. I'm at 24000 miles anyway and should get routine maintenance.

    Unless you're a DIY guy, have them change your Dual Pump Fluid at the same time. It's due (but not according to the book). :-)

    Hey, have you tried the 'tight u-turn test' lately? Just curious to see if yours is squawking yet.

    Thanks for that.
    No, I didn't know about the TUT test. I'll give it a try tomorrow.

    Default shift lock

    shift lock is only to get out of park ,have your dealer check for any recalls
    ,sound like the shift cable is binding ,has there been any work done to your v that has triggered this problem,with it being an 02 ,check
    your in service date to insure that you car still under warranty .

    There's a recall on the 2002 automatic transmission cable. You can read about it here:

    2002 A/T cable recall

    Good luck.

    The person I purchased the V from had taken care of that recall.
    Thanks

    I had the shift interlock solenoid replaced in my CRV. My problem was that I would have trouble taking the transmission out of park. The problem was most noticeable in the morning.

    I had a similair problem, you should be able to find the posting in this forum. Basically it was "fixed" by repeatedly working (gently stabbing) the shift lock release. You can find where this is located in your owner's manual.

    Thanks Saint. I did get the shift lever to work using the lock release button. But I'm sure a service check is a wise move.
