1991 Honda Accord "S" light on steady

Seems like the transmission went out, day after it froze hard. Doesn't want to up shift at all, running very slow at lower RPMs. Do I need a new transmission?

I have seen this in my shop before it sounds like you need a transmission control module. The way to tell is to shift through the gears manually if it shifts you know the trans is ok

You have transmission issues, the first thing to do is have the fluid changed in the transmission to see if that improves the hard shifting and then go from there.

WHY THE S LIGHT IS BLINKING OF MY HONDA ACCORD 1991 AND THEN IS HARD TO CHANGE TO SECOND SHIFT?


I once had one of these cars. Are you able to shift manually through all gears without any problem? I yes, your problem may lie with the Transmission Control Unit. On my vehicle that part went bad and is very expensive. However, I was able to repair it and all of this problem went alway. Good luck.

My tranny is slow shifting and the s light is blinking


The "S" light flashing means the speed sensor went out. Is an easy fix. I got mine for less than $40 and it was not hard to install. As for the gears going in too slow, I dont know. Good luck.

1991 Honda Accord Trans s light


Mine did the same thing. turns out i needed to change the gear selector. But it can be a number of problems. You have to check for a code in your ECU, which is under the passenger side carpet. Its better if you have a mechanic look at it though. Hope this helps a little bit.
