Default 2003 Honda Accord won't get out of park?!?!?

The shifter freely moves up and down and won't engage in drive or reverse. It's an automatic transmission.

If you glance at the Automatic transmission console you will see a tiny rectangular box just above " Park " Pry that open with a pen knife or whatever and push a screw driver down into the hole . It will release the locking mechanism that is stopping you from entering drive or reverse.

If the shifter still has full travel but doesn't change gears the main drive belt may have just slipped off the stator pulley. Not too big of a deal to have repaired

You need either a new transmission or it needs work?

The shift linkage has fallen apart or has come off the transmission. It is visible from under the car and is not hard to figure out.
