Hi:
The problem is the transmission computer located under the riht front carpet and its the smaller of the 2 computers. You need to know what the code is. Use a paper clip and jump between the two wire SCS connector. Turn the key on and count any possible flashes in the check engine light. This connector is usually a blue connector and may be taped to the wire harness on that side with blue tape. If not, look behind the kick panel because they get placed behind this panel.

These cars are very bad about the TCM failing. If you get no flashes when you jump this connector but the light is on, the TCM (Transmission Control Module) has failed. Very common.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

SOURCE: warning lights on dash of 91 honda accord

Count the number of times the yellow light flashes.

A long flash for ten

A short flash for one

So two long and three short flashes is 23.

Get back to me with the yellow check engine number. That is your CEL (check engine light) CODE

SOURCE: dash lights not working in 1995 honda accord.

I couldve sworn there was a switch. if not, probably the dimmer switch is bad. Take it out and verify operation with a multimeter. Also verify the switch has 12V

sounds like a possible bad ground wire, you will need to find out where these 3 items ground and see if they have a ground point in common.

Flashing S button 1991 Honda accord


the flashing S light on your car is your tcu "transmission control unit" sending a trouble code to your dash this could mean alot of differant things if im not mistaken it will be an electrical problem not mechanical. is your speedometer just randomly jumping? the reason i ask is i drive a 91 as well and my S light is blinking and my speedometer jumps and sometimes doesnt work at all the the code for the S or tcu is 4 which is the vss "vehicle speed censor" eventually your check engine light will probably come on and if the code is 17 then its your vss as well but you can check the code by getting either a paper clip or small wire and using it as a jumper wire there is a little blue wiring harness on the passenger side of your car under the glove box use the paper clip or wire and plug them in "dont worry you wont get shocked ive done this plenty of times and in the rapair manual it tells you to do this" when you do this make sure the paper clip or wire is secure and put you key in the ignition and turn it to where your dash lights up but dont start the car the S light will start to blink count the blinks "1 long blink is 10, 1 small blink is 1" example if the light stays on for a couple of seconds and turns off and then blinks 4 times that would be code 14, if your check engine light blinks count that as well if you need help with checking any of it there is a video on you tube i believe the title is how do you check the check engine light on a 91 honda accord. or something of that nature. if you get the codes tell me what they are I may be able to find them and get more specific about what is goin on I hope this helps

Where is the brake light switch on my 91 honda accord ex


It would be on the brake pedal under the dash. Sometimes they come loose, and just need to be repositioned. There is an excellent site for Hondas at 3geez.com good luck.

Have a 91 honda accord. experiencing dramtic hesitation when accelerating but check engine light comes on and problem dissapears. Once you stop for a short period of time check engine light goes off and...


Sounds like your O2 sensor is malfunctioning. When the check engine light comes on, the computer goes into a preset mode bypassing the O2 sensor and that's why it suddenly runs good. Have the O2 sensor checked. You can also have the trouble codes read and they should point you in the same direction.

How do you read the trouble codes on a 91 honda


Older cars used the OBD 1 system for retrieving codes, check your owners man, for the location of the diagnostic connector under the hood, use a compatible scanner, most newer scanner's have the cable needed for making the connection. Good luck!

'S' BUTTON LIGHT ON DASH


It is your transmission control unit (TCU) This is located under the passenger rug next to the main computer. I just purchased a reconditioned TCU for my 91 accord from an ebay seller called allcomputerresources. If he does not list a 91 accord TCU, then contact him to see if he can get one quickly. He will send it, and then you send the old one in as a core. My unit is running fine, and costs considerably less than from a dealer.
