Last year in the summer of 2007 I had the same problem with my 1991 Accord dx. I replaced the Transmission Control Unit (TCU) and the light went out and the car has been driving fine every since.

Why is my 91 honda accord ex s light flashing?


This is a trans issue, and OBD scanners won't read these. Jump the 2 pin OBD connector and count the light flashes to get the code #. Then go online to find a list of codes for your Honda.

I have honda accord wagon 1991 in the dash board the letter s is on and off when I drive


I have a 91 accord coupe with an automatic transmission. The letter S on the dash represents the "Sports Shift" designation for the transmission. There should be a small button on the side of your shifter that controls this feature. It sounds like your depressing the button with realizing it.

Honda accord 1991 shifter has a sport shift option, button. It will not come out of sport shift. It has auto trans.


It sounds like your tcm (transmission control unit) is going bad or it already is, at times when this happens you may also experience the trans not shifting or it gets stuck on a higher gear and will have to shift manually from 1-D.Usually this happens when it's really bad.

Sport shift warning light


This light will come on when you need to service the trans or there is a problem. the tcu is a problem on 90-93 accords and some other hondas. Are you having any trans problems if not you soon will check your fluid and the color.

S----Light


I have honda accord 91 for more than 6 yrs. If the S light comes on ,it means one of the sensors are not working. it has nothing to do with transmission. It could happen sometimes during rain , or cleaning as the computer controller is under driver seat.
Once the S light blinks or comes on . Stop the car and take ignition off and wait for a minutes and put ignition again , it will be gone and will change in the speed and gear shifting will be different.
Hope it will help
