Default cant shift out of park

Hey guys, quick question for you.
91 honda civic auto HB. Been a great car, but now when I put the key
in, start the car and press the brake, I cant shift out of park. I
have to use the shift lock release next to the shifter to be able to
get going. Any ideas? It was a very sudden thing...

Do the brake lights work?

Have you or anyone else work on the transmission in the past couple of months?
If it was a mechanic, take it back and tell him the problem.
It's possible that the problem is related to the transaxle control
solenoid. You might have to replace it. If you have never before done any
work on transmissions, I advise you to take it to your favorite mechanic.

On an integra you can override the lock on the shifter by putting a key
in the little slot in front of the shifter -- it might be similar on
your civic.

A solenoid normally controls this lock and the key just manually pushes
the lever. That solenoid might be broken or not driven. It can also be
in need of adjustment.

So, instead of replacing the solenoid, I could jsut replace it with
really no ill effects right?

I bet it is the switch going to your brake pedal - it controls the brake
lights and a solenoid (= a mechanical electrically control switch) to your
shifter. It makes sure that you have to put your foot on the brake before
you shift, as a precaution.
A wire might have gotten knocked loose or the switch may actually be bad -
you might be able to see what is wrong by looking up from where the pedals
are.
