    I opened mine up and changed a blown capacitor on it. I notced the acid from the cap spilled over a section of the board onto some of the traces pulling them off. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find some schematics for the module to follow an replace th traces.

It's under the carpet on the passenger's side floor board. There's two boxes under the access panel, I think the TCM is the one on the right? If your's is broken there are probably a couple of capacitors and a resistor that are fried and need to be replaced.

Speedometer is not working and transmission wont shift

There are two likely solutions to this problem. 1) The transmission control module. This is the part that controls the shifting of the transmission. 2) The VSS. The vehicle speed sensor is what tells the gauge how fast you are going.
Both of these can cause this type of problem.

The S (sports mode) light keeps flashing on and off and my transmission feels like it is dragging. We have disconnected the battery cables to no avail.

The flashing S light is the transmission control unit telling you there is an issue somewhere. Click here to diagnose the problem. That post is for 92-93 accords where the D4 light is for TCU errors, but diagnosing is the same. Just replace every instance of "D4 light" with "S light".

92 honda accord lx D4 flashes

you have a transmission fault the D4 light blinks to tell you that there is a transmission problem when the light is blinking the transmission computer put the transmission into limp home mode so it will not shift normally and you should try not to drive it very far when it gets to this stage you need to have the transmission codes check to pin point the problem

Have 90 honda accord and s-light stays on causing rpm to go to 3-4 and won't go down

You have a bad transmission control module (TCM). It is under the passenger side front floor mat. You can get rebuilt units off Ebay, whatever you do, don't get a used one! They are all bad. If you know anybody that does electronic repairs, you can have them replace the big 220 uf capacitor on the PC board in the TCM. It's a two dollar part and a ten minute job but you have to know what you're doing. This will fix your problem I promise. Don't let anyone sell you a transmission!
