My 1990 honda accord for some time has had the s(green) light blinking off and on, had it is solid S green and it seems as it won't shift gears, I don't have power like before? what happened?

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.

Which lights flash? If your talking about headlights, check for poor ground on or near the radiator support. Also can be a broken wire in the light harness.

1990 accord rpms run high seems to be stuck in sport mode,red dash light are flashing like a christmas tree, speedometer does'nt work, now im needing to get a jump.

You need a new transmission computer. They are a very common failure part, google: "honda tcm". It is located under the front passenger's floor board. Buy a new one off ebay or a rebuilder, not used, they are all bad.

Pull back the carpet in the passanger foot area. The ECU will be on the floor. Count the flashes a long flash is ten short flash is 1.

So two long flashes and 4 short is 24.

Let me know what the number comes out to.

Drive 4 light flashing when i put the key in.

This light is flashing to indicate a fault has occurred in the transmission, have a test run on the control module of the trans to figure out what that might be, it could be a simple fix once you have the trouble code.
