HONDA ACCORD RPM PROBLEM

1999 Honda Accord • 185,000 miles

Last night, I replaced the timing belt, crankshaft sensor, and water pump. When I put everything back together and started the car, the car idles at 2900 - 3000 rpm, and the shifter will not shift out of park. Any suggestions on what I did to cause this?

Sounds like a vacuum leak. Check all hoses. Go over all your work.

Check the brake light fuse for the interlock

Thanks. I went over my work, and I think knock a throttle cable at one of the connection points. I adjusted the connection, and the idle speed went down. The car now idles a a much lower RPM and the car shifts freely into and out of park.
