When shifting car into park the light sometimes does not come on so I am unable to take the key out of the ignition.. very annoying have to wiggle/jiggle for a few minutes sometimes.. also when going into reverse the light doesn't come on so it takes a second for back up lights and for the car to go into gear itself.. however just took it to Mission Valley Honda and all the mechanics were going off on the car for the year and low mileage and say the car runs like a champ no maintenance issues PERIOD!.. Go figure.

Well my problem is actually with the shifting gears. I get in my car and drive a short distance, then when I get out I shift into park and the park light doesn't come on. If the parking light doesn't come on you can't take out the key. So I have to sit there and wiggle the gear shift for awhile until the light comes on.. Sometimes i have to sit out there for 15mins doing this, depending on how cold it is (more it's cold, more it's long). I don't know what to do about this problem.
