Thats a common issue with the TCM when is about to go out.. Once you get to 3rd gear take you foot off the pedal the if you let go of the pedal and slowly accelerate it should go in 3rd gear. You can order a unit from this site with a lifetime warranty. Good Luck and the HONDA on the road.

If my car wont go into gear what could be the cause? When i got the 1992 honda accord lx i was having to start out in 2nd than 3rd now it wont shift and i cant go past 70 without it revving up.

Normally you should not be able to start the car without it being in 'Neutral' or 'Park'. First try changing the starter inhibitor switch on the transmission. Next check out the selector rod for the gear position, this connects between the bottom of gear selector and the input selector shaft on the transmission. Next check out you fluid level in the auto-box on the autobox fluid dipstick. If low you can add extra fluid by the dipstick tube. Ordinarily it is suggested that the fluid level is checked when the engine is running but in park.cannot start the car unless in gear I suggest you do not do this for safety reasons.

My transmission will only use 2 and 3rd gear and i have too shift it my car is a 90 honda accord the green sprt shift light stays on

Generally autos love clean transmission fluid and periodic cleaning and adjusting.
Suggest you drop the transmission pan and give everything a good clean and blow out followed by some nice clean trans fluid.
If it smells like burnt clutch and there are black particles present the bands may need replacing.
After everything is clean, and if it is still playing up, check continuity in the " sport " switch to ensure it is working properly. If switch is ok start looking for damaged wires.
Happy hunting

My 1991 honda accord auto trans with sport gear runs great except after i replaced the speed sensor when i put it into d4 it barely moves like trans is slipping. fluid is good and new. i removed the main...

Your computer is reverting (when you pull the fuse) to a pre-programmed mode that is meant to simply run your car without the input from various sensors. I would make sure that the sensor I replaced was the correct one for the model and engine. Beyond that there are a number of items that would affect the way your car runs, but not many that affect the way the transmission shifts. Is your D4 light blinking at all? If so, that means there is a transmission problem.
I hope this is of a little help.

Dashboard s light stays on 1991 honda accord

Have you mistakenly push the "sport"button at the gear shift knob? Because if you do so, the S ligh will stay on.
