Honda CR-V towing issue

Any CR-V owners, especially 2014 models. Ever experience an issue where the gearshift is locked in Park? Have to take key and slide inside slot beside gearshift and push down to unlock it. Honda Tech. says some faulty part causing the brake system not to recognize foot on brake so Gearshift will come out of Park. Any thoughts or suggestions? TIA..

Same here. No such problem with our 2002 CR-V.

Sounds like a call to Mr H's Service Depart is in order as this is clearly not normal.

I checked with Blue Ox to ensure that there was nothing on their end. Then to Camping Word , who did the install. That conversation was short. Service advisor tells me, there is a solenoid for the Gear shift lever. It has been known to go out/freeze up. He did not say it was only on the CR-Vs. So, come Monday I will be giving the Holda Service Director a call and see what his version will be. Funny though, since leaving the Honda dealer on Thursday morning. The problem has not reoccurred.

Our CR-V is a 2008 but I was wondering exactly when this happens and if it might be related to your coach system and parking procedure.

Be sure your toad is not in park when dumping the air out of your suspension (if your coach is so equipped) of when dropping your jacks. These evens can cause a push/pull effect on your tow bar resulting in a load being placed on the pin that is engaged when your transmission is placed in Park. This load will at times make it difficult to get out of Park.

We always drop our suspension and lower our jacks before taking the transmission out of Neutral and putting it in Park. Transversely, we always put the transmission back into Neutral before raising the jacks and inflating the air suspension.

Make sure you have your foot on the brake when trying to shift it out of Park. Another safety interlock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ron H, probably good advice for a DP. Since mine is a gasser your suggestion doesn't really apply. When the lock up happens the CR-v is not attached to the towbar. The other suggestion regarding foot on brake, the DW was insulted when I suggested it. Through habit over the years of having that requirement of foot on brake, there is always a chance we are distracted and fail to do that.
As the Honda Tech. indicated, it is with the brake switch not recognizing trying to disengage park to another gear. Call to Service director this morning to have a better explanation.

olddog49,

We have had the lockup happen once. Completely unrelated to being towed, as we were not, and had not recently been, on a trip. Happened at home late on a Saturday afternoon after we had been out earlier in the day grocery shopping. Looked it up in the owners' manual and learned the same 'insert key' temporary fix you did. Couldn't take it to the dealer right away and didn't try to restart it again until Monday afternoon. Shifted into gear like nothing ever happened. That was months ago now and has never re-occurred. I figured it was just one more benefit of computers.
