    My car had been previously sitting for a few months. I put the battery back in an started it up I put it into reverse backed down the driveway. When I pulled back up to park it the shifter won’t go past neutral. What could be my problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Older Honda/Acuras used to have the occasional problem with shifter cables breaking a strand inside the sheathing and it would then cause a bind like you’re experiencing. Disconnect the cable at the transmission and I’ll bet it shifts in and out of park just fine at the transmission. The shifter will still be stuck trying to push it into reverse or park. I even had a couple of my own Hondas fail on me and I just muscled the shifter in & out of park until I finally got around to replacing the cable.
