Well it means the alternator is not charging the battery.
Could be a problem with the alternator or the belt.

SOURCE: Hard Shift to 2nd Gear/next gear

Your going to have to get your car scaned for codes. Auto Zone can scan it for you for free and tell your what you'll need to fix it.
It sound's like your VSS Sensor (speed sensor) is not working and your ECM is not getting the signal from the transmission to know when to shift the gears.
Becareful not to burn out the transmission till you get it fixed. The sensor it self is not that expansive and to replace it is easy and takes about 30 min to do.
If you get a P0720 or a P0722 code, then it's your speed sensor. It's an esy fix and Auto Zone can give you instrction on how to change it. 
Good luck, it takes about 30 min to change and hope this helps.

My 1994 honda passport will not stay charged new altnator and new battery


is the engine running at 800 rpm or more.
if engine RPM is way low the Alternator will die out.
trans light , where is that? name it. exactly
lets focus first on the engine, and RPM
does the dash have a tachmeter, ? yes, then use that.
we keep a hand tachometer (optical , ready for no tach cars)
RPM is everything.... maxwells laws. and such.
1: rpm 800 or more all the time. rule 1, do not skip this.
2: belt to ALT not slipping'
3: battery good. terminals on battery cables tight both ends and
NOT PACKED in green corrosion, .
4: alternator case is grounded good.
5: The connection and ALT, all good.
6: you key on, and the dash charge light must turn on,
if not fix that now, on old cars, the dash light , causes the ALT to self excite, if the lamp burns out the alternator boots up DEAD.
or fails every other car starts. (does)
7: new alt is the wrong alt. zillion wrong ones, only 1 works.

Battery light, ABS light, and Oil light flashes on and off when driving the car. Dash lights,front marker lights, and tail lights will not come on until the car is warmed up.


Electrical problems are hard to fix. You need a voltage test for the charging system and a battery test.

The oil light, abs light, are not hooked up to the turn signals. Never heard of balance of lights coming on in that manner.

The heater fan, headlights, and wipers will slow if the charging system can not keep up. Battery light is accurate to show discharge.

Trans shifts can be affected by voltage. Some transmissions use electric solenoids to shift and they mix voltage to get different gears.

What does the ect dash light mean


ECT stands for Electronically Controlled Transmission. When you push the button in, there should be a light on the dash that says "ECT POWER". This changes the normal shift times (based on engine vacuum, rpm, and throttle position to a later point. This means simply that the engine rpms will go higher before shifting to a higher gear when you're accelerating. It helps build speed more quickly but uses more gas to do so

POWER light came on the dash


there should be a switch next to your automatic transmission shifter that says N, A/T, P....switch it to N and the POWER light should turn off. When the power light is on that means your car is shifting gears at a higher RPM.
