Re: where is tehe transmission sensor on a 1990 honda...
I went to autozone.com and for that vehicle they really don't give a lot of information unfortunately. I just did a similar vehicle and the speed sensor for the transmission was located on the top of the transmission above where the axle goes in. It was held in place with one bolt. I ended up removing it from the top squeezing my arm in and using a deep socket and an extension. Not terribly hard to do but a little bit of a pain nonetheless.

The flashing s light means a transmission problem. The transmission computer is under the carpet on passenger side under where you put your feet. Pull down the carpet to see the diagnostic light. Turn on the key to count the flashes to get the code. Pulll a list of codes from the internet.
If your trans shifts properly if you manually shift it thru the gears, going from D1, D2 D3 but feels like it is starting in second when in drive at a stop, the computer is probably the issue, and can be repaired or exchanged for a good computer, lots of companies do this ,find 1 on the internet.
On my 1990 Accord Lx I have the same problem. My floor pan has a hole in it some where and my carpet gets wet which gets my computer wet causeing the "S" light to flash and then when my tranny shifts it skips 2nd gear.

Depending on whether you have a automatic or a manual shift there are a few things that may cause your troubles. If you have a automatic transmission check your fluid level make sure its full it could also be your transmission filter It may be dirty if there is alot of miles on it. there are quite a few things that could cause it from vacume lines to sensors my advice is to check the fluid level if that looks good I would take it to your local garage and have it hooked on a computer to check for vacume leaks sensor troubles etc..before you go spending alot on parts you probally do not need.
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.
