Remove the center console from the interior of the vehicle using the screwdriver. Remove the gear shift knob and disconnect the heat switch connectors (which should just pull out of the switches); front power accessory port and rear power accessory port (which should just pull out of the socket connectors); and illumination power cables (which should simply un-clamp by hand with squeeze connectors).
Remove the lower dashboard panels, driver glove box and center storage pocket using the screwdriver.
Carefully remove the airbag assembly from the steering wheel and the passenger side. The airbags are held in place with spring clamps, which will pop open with mild pressure. Be careful to not apply too much pressure--even a discharged airbag may still deploy if too much shock is applied.
Separate the steering column assembly from the dashboard unit by moving the column to the fully up position. Use a piece of heavy tape to secure the shaft sliding cover onto the steering column while it is removed.
Remove the hoses by opening the spring hose clamps using the vise grips. Remove all remaining wires. Remove the harnesses and retainer bolts using the Phillips screwdriver. Remove the connectors, air bag control computer and center lower covers by squeezing open the hand squeeze clamps. (This may require the assistance of another person.)
Lift the dashboard out slowly and remove it from the vehicle by sliding it out of one of the doors.

Sounds like the water pump seal is gone, there is a small hole under the pump just check if the fluid is coming from there...

Just check the transmission fluid-if low you have to add until it is full-do not overfill though. Better to have it just a bit low than overfilling it.
In park, can you accelerate to 2500-3000 rpm, and hold steady with no shaking or indications of a miss? If it runs good in park or neutral, then you probably have transmission problems. Frankly, it is pretty rare for a torque converter to develop a problem. Check your fluid, or try changing the fluid if it is dark or dirty looking.

Check for vacuum leaks. Fill a spray bottle with a few drops of d/w liquid and the rest with water. Start and run the engine. Spray around all vacuum lines and areas to where hoses may be going. If the engine r.p.m. increases, that's where your vacuum leak is. Stay away from electrical.

Applying the brakes drops the cruise control function. Check for bad brake pedal interlock switch.

the problem can be faulty sensors but I suspect that it is a wiring or connection problem that is causing the problem
prices are from a honda spares department and labor costs vary between shops so get qiotes and stay with accredited shops or you might get ripped

Thanks. But, there is a "tips" section for these sorts of things.

very possible as that hose would not be reading manifold pressure ( vacuum)

indications from your description is that the shifter ( cable or mechanical ) is loose or out of adjustment and is jamming on the light position switch
If it cable , then have it checked out as with a 1997 model , there is a good chance that the cable is fraying or jamming and is the cause of the problems
if it is all mechanical linkage , then check for worn out bushes or rubber sections
you state that when gear it drives perfectly so by that statement , there is no transmission problems just selecting problems
