Question about 1990 Honda Accord
I have a 1990 Honda Accord Ex w/ appx. 118,000 miles on it. Just recently I've noticed that when I go to crank up the S green light is on and won't go off. When I go to drive off I have to press the gas petal all the way to the floor,because it starts off in lower gear. When I do get going it won't shift gears.The RPM get really high but I'm not going that fast. The hand was on 4 rpms and speed was @ 60mph. Right now I can get it off by disconnecting the battery cable for a little while. What do you think could be the problem and appx. what is it going to cost to fix it?
On the side of your gearshift there is a button. Press that button and it will turn off the light. Its more designed to help you race in an automatic. It lets the RPMs run high to get more low end acceleration. It will eventually shift however. Another way to keep from it running the RPMs up is to ease off the pedal. If you still have a problem than its beyond me.
