No the starter being hooked up wrong would not have caused that. I say the alternator was locked up and that was your problem. Sitting around for a year was not good on it.

Alternator is likely siezed. Replace it if you can't free it on the bench.
Fit new belts too.

"Sports" sensor l reading on the dash regarding the transmission.


It's going into safe mode. This link I included at the bottom of my note will explain everything. I just repaired this problem 3 weeks ago on a 91 Accord. She needs to find out if the transmission computer is burned out. If so replace it only from a 90-93 Accord that also has the Sport Shift feature.

A Ticking


It could be the voltage regulator trying to charge a dead battery. (It could burn out if you keep doing this)

Or it could be a lifter noise, rust on the belt pulley from sitting in one position for two years.
Buy a good battery, change the oil and put some fresh gas and fuel stabilizer. It might be nothing serious!

Sputtering Belt in Engine. Slow shifting into gears.


Change the belt it sounds like it may be split somewhere.Just remove it and inspect it .

90% of all transmission problems are due to a defective battery. Why? because of the electronics they run off of. Now is it crank no start or no crank condition.
Start off with battery. Make sure its fully charged and terminals are a-ok. Then do starter checks . Let me know what you got at this point ,, cause chances are if battery died the codes are lost . Keep me posted I
'll get you threw it.

'91 Honda Accord LX transmission light on.


You say "standard transmission?" Do you mean "standard" as in "manual/5 spd./'stick-shift'?" transmission?

Either way, if you replaced the alternator belt and the battery light went away and the car doesn't sputter or stop, then it's the "speed sensor" on the transmission itself. The car will still drive, but the speedometer cannot read how fast the car is going (in RPM's as well).
