remove, stuck, ignition

will find you a couple of threads, but I didn't find any of the ones about adjusting the cable length.

Lets try 'cable length shifter'.... There they are, threads that include the links to the HONDA TSB's etc.

http://www.hondasuv.com/members/showthread.php?t=30286&

I had that trouble with my '97, and I think I need to fine-tune the linkage on our '01 as well. Be aware that the switch on the side of the tranny should be working perfectly FIRST, but the cable length will throw out the switch if it's far enough out or whack.

well i opened it like u had on the video today and sprayed it a little it was full of salt deposits. doseit matter the type of oil u spray? this was just stander lube in a can. but anyway its still in the garage as im trying too get the few bugs out. i left the plate off for now as ill give it an other spray. It has problems with park. and in order to get the key out it has to be in park sometimes it works some times in dont 50/5o i useless press the button for the lock and giggle it up till i see the light come on and pull the key.. and the odd time when i put the key in and try and start its like the park wont work so i press the keylock and move it too N.

ill make a video tommor or the next day and post it seems to be the best thing lol thanks u guys on here are awsome i love formums where everyone helps out i know alot about honda too just nothing about this automatic stuff..

Also my drivers electic window dont work any tips ?

Follow the links provided and you'll find the CIVIC TSB's that tell you exactly why you have your problem / how to fix it.

Fix it before you plan to drive it. It is a safety issue.

i played with it a good bit but its like its not adjusted because and when i try and put it in park its between and R so the light wont come on and when i go under and push on the leaver on the tranny just a tad the light comes on and its in park.. so its eaither slack or the parts are still too rusted and stiff.

wheres the adjustment i only see the civic's and its not showing it on the column any pictures?

It's that small cover on the left lower side of the steering column. www.slhondaparts.com has your pictures.

The adjustment is identical, but the shifter is 'in the tree' instead of on the floor.
