Question about 1990 Honda Accord

2 Answers

The green S light stays on!

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.

Flashing green s on the dash


A green flashing "S" is similar to a check engine light. It is telling you that something in or on your transmission is not functioning correctly, such as the speed sensor or shift control solenoids. If it starts flashing and the speedometer stops working or the transmission shifts weird, take it to a mechanic.

1990 Honda Accord EX Transmission


possibly due to low trans fluid pressure. the cooler in the radiator may be plugged. to check, disconnect and bypass cooler with rubber line & clamps. drive 2-3 miles. shifting OK now? install auxillary cooler to bypass one in radiator. you can get one at auto-zone $30-$50. may just need fluid & filter change, but more likely it's the cooler. when they get plugged, either one, pressure drops alot.
