Default 94 honda sticking gears?

I own a 1994 Honda Accord EX... great car never owned a better one. The other evening i arrived at home and put my car in park an hour later I got back in my car and had to run an errand. I went to turn the key and my car wouldn't start. I began to panic. my car was in park. then i saw that when turned the key as if to start my car... it lit up around D4... so i left my key in the start position and moved my gear shift from park to D4 and back to park... and my car started... what causes this? what can i do other than to be more cautious?

Your automatic Honda Accord has a bad intermittent neutral safety switch. It will not let you crank the car in Park. Sometimes, you can do as you did to get it started. Other times, you would turn you key on, shift it into Neutral, then you'll be able to start.

It is already a 17 yr old car. Just replace the neutral safety switch and stop taking chances with it. You eventually won't be able to start the car at all if the switch goes bad permanently.
