Will the vehicle restart if it is shut off? The security flashing light usually indicates a passlock issue with the key or the passlock.

Hai i have honda accord v i tec 2003 model 83000 turnover now when ever i am driving the car on the dash board i c a light coming on the dash board i dont know what it means model accord


The light indicates that the car's computer thinks that there is something wrong with one of your systems. There is an OBD-II port under the dash, probably on the driver's side. If you take your car to Autozone (or perhaps another automotive store of the same sort), they will be happy to attach their code reader to your port and tell you what codes the computer is indicating. They don't charge anything to do that, and you will then know what the computer thinks is wrong.
Hope this helps you.

My s4 light on my 1989 honda integra is flashing and car only will start when light stops flashing whitch happens when ever it likes 2


I found this one the www.hondacarforum.com
http://www.hondacarforum.com/honda-technical/28562-i-have-1989-honda-integra-can-any-one-tell-me-what-s4-gear-stick.html

You have a couple of choices on this Honda transmission... D and S modes. Consider the D as the normal Drive mode and the S for Sport mode. The difference between the two is that in "D", the transmission will shift through the gears all the way to 4th gear and at lower rpm shift points. In "S", the transmission will shift at higher rpm levels and will go no higher than 3rd gear and light S3 on the dash. Once the vehicle is in 3rd gear (S3) you can then press the S4 button and the transmission will go into 4th gear (when conditions dictate). I believe there is even an S4 indicator on the dash signifying the trans is in 4th gear

The last line looks like it is the key here though.

If the car thinks its in 4th gear when you are trying to start it, obviously it wouldn't start...you could probably hunt around and see if there is a sensor on the transmission stick that runs the "D" vs "S" mode
