my 2002 acura mdx gear shift is/was hard to move from park,reverse,drive, etc.. now it sometimes gets completely stuck into any gear.
I had to put it in neutral with the emergency break on an after that it won't start.
dash board comes on and everything turns on but when i turn it over the car won't start.
any suggestions or solutions?

Sounds like the classic binding shift cable. Quite common in vehicles driven in areas where road salt is used. To verify, just disconnect the cable at the transmission end and see if you can move the shift lever on the console with no restriction. If it is hard to move, disconnect the cable at the shift lever end and confirm that the lever moves without restriction. If so, it's time for a new cable.
