Default is this normal?

I have a an 96 accord lx non vtec, automatic. When I put my key in the car
and tap on the brakes theres a clicking sound in where the shifter is at.
Why is this? Or is it normal?

You're hearing the shift release. That is the mechanism that prevent you
from shifting out of park without having the break pedal pressed. I've
heard that sounds on older accords before. As far as being normal though,
I'm not sure. Did you just buy the car and are wondering about the sound or
did it just sounds making it?

no i had it for awhile i also put a different gear shifter on it. But i
noticed it for awhile but wasnt sure if its normal. Like i said i tap the
brake pedal and sounds like somewthings hitting that stick but you sound
right.

A lot of cars do that. As stated, it's the shift release. Don't worry
about it.

It is actually a solenoid, not a relay.

Yeah, it's normal. I have the same sound on my 98 accord. It's a relay that
switches on and off depending if you're holding the pedal up or down and
works in the way the previous poster described. You can even open it up and
see exactly where the relay is (relay is an elecromagnetic switch). Kind of
like a transistor but it uses different principles to switch on/off.

Same thing.

No, Viktor, they are not the same thing. A switch can be either mechanical
(relay) or purely electrical (as some transistors are) but a solenoid (by
definition) must incorporate both an electrical and a mechanical component
(such as the actuating mechanism on an auto starter). I agree that both
perform the same basic function and that the difference is really rather
picayune but there is a difference.

Yes, Dave. I agree. I meant it in terms of practical use they are the same.
They both do the same thing. Of course their mechanisms are a little
different but that's not important for this discussion. The reason I
mentioned relay is because most people know more about relays than they do
about solenoids.
