couple of things to try first , is the trans fluid at correct level ? when was the fluid last replaced ? have the OBD codes read as may tell you what the problem is , if you done all this i'd go to a repar shop for advice
I had this problem recently with a 2002 Acura TL-S, and hopefully it will help you out as well. There was what many consider to be a defect regarding the anti-theft system. If the radio is receiving too strong of a signal, it will not accept the code, and will instead display the error message. First, I would call up Honda help line and double check your code. If you tell them what you think the code is, they won't ask for any arbitrary information, and instead just say "That's what we have too." or "No, I'm sorry. We can give it to you if you just tell me your..."
Otherwise, your best bet would be to drive into an underground parking lot, park dead center, as far away from any exits as possible, and then punch it in. Hope that works!
Only recently has my 97 Honda Passport been acting like the transmission slips...I'll be in Drive and the revs jump from 2 to 5 or 6; I'll drop it to 3, and it settles down. Last week, I was in Drive, then went to 3...then back to Drive and it jumped...and the Check Trans light came on.
There is a metal fitting bolt close to the bottom of the transmission. You can unscrew that out and if transmission fluid comes out it's good. If this doesn't occur you'll have to get a pump and pump transmission fluid in it. This is the easiest with a lift of course. Don't you hate stupid Japanese ideas. Good luck man
Unfortunately there is really no good way to tell if it is internal or external without expensive equipment and experience. About the best you can do is check the fluid and make sure it is full. You can smell it to see if it smells burned or if it is really dark.
