99 acura tl stuck in park and brake lights won't work
My 99 acura tl will not shift off of park. I have to push the button on side of shifter in order to bypass and be able to drive but didn't realize that my brake lights do not work as well. I replaced the brake sensor underneath the foot pedal and that did not solve the problem. Please can any one help me with this matter....scarred of dealer charging me and arm and a leg

I checked all brake light fuses and they are all good. I had one bulb out and replaced it and still nothing. Im confused about the cruise control switch. Would that not allow the shift and light to not work?
I checked the fuses on the drivers side, the passenger side and underneath the hood. I also double checked that the foot pedal was pressing against the switch. Where would the brake fuse be? I was told it could be the shifter solenoid. I have the whole center of my car torn apart to try to get to the solenoid and check if that could be the problem.
i got the same situation just happend to me yesterday i tough that the guys that installed the alarm messed up my car they say something behind the brake im gone go tomorrow to buy whatever it is if u fixed ur problem tell us about what it was .
Not sure if your TL has a STOP fuse in the fuse box under the hood (thats for ur brakes),but i can bet thats what causing it not to work according to what u described.
The reason i know is cuz this same thing happened to me on my Accord and then i checked out and saw my brakes werent lighting up when i stepped on it,so i changed the STOP fuse (20A fuse) and it started working again. Goodluck.
Well I'm still going thru it. I dropped it off at a garage and they can't figure out the problem either. I even went to autozone and purchased a new brake switch thinking the one I bought form Napa was defective. I checked all fuses and all are fine. Not sure what to do now. I guess I might have to fold and take it to the dealer. Crap!
a good shop should be able to find where you have power and where it stops
Thats why they are in business
start at fuse box, then switch, wires to brake lights, ground wires, bulbs- connectors
There a real suspect- a bad ground wire
Done any work in the trunk?
there is a main ground under the spare tire that gets disturbed in sub work
at the end of your life,,it was all just stuff, so enjoy great toys!!
you can screw around asking buddies, or you can believe acurazine- where info is based on thousands of users reports!
I recently had a stereo installed but other than that no. I had my car in the shop for two days and they cannot even figure out the problem...crazy!..well sucks to say but acura dealer service shop will be ripping me off but I need my car fixed. I thank everyone on here for all your help. This site is a beast!
so the stereo install could have knocked a ground out, or they borrowed off a ground and its not right or ....
has that shop rechecked its work?
when a new prob appears after work,, I suspect that work!
dont go to acura for this- look in the phone book and internet for `automotive electrical repairs`
Those guys love wiring--
most everyone else has a severe dislike of tracing electrical probs--shorts are a b to find
time consuming and back breaking
talk to the stereo shop- look in trunk under spare tire for ground wire not right
i have a 1996 acura integra ls, and im having the same problem. when i turn my car on and put my foot on the brake i cant push my button on my shifter to move it. i also realized i have no lights. i was told this might be the break light switch? does that sound right. what else should i check? and also by bypassing the shifter i use the saftey lock with this mess up my transmission???
i just got an 99 Acura 3.2 tl. after reading trough this thread i see that i am not the only one with the "cant get out of park" problem. i do have a question. my brakes lights are still working. could it still be my Brake light switch?
My symptoms were the same but also included the inability to operate cruise control. Changed the switch to no avail. From this post looked more for fuse. Found it labeled "stop" on right side of engine compartment, 20 Amp. Blown. Replaced. All now works. Thanks everyone.
