Re: I am a mechanic and working on my own car. I replaced...
I can so relate. 2005 Concord a few weeks ago. Turns out it was a very small and easy fix. Disconnect neg on batt. now unplug every connector to ECM. one at a time and the plug them back in. reconnect the batt. Turn key on wait till check engine light goes off. That should take care of the problem.

Probably need a second opinion that you can use in court. Hope you got a bill and have proof you paid the money you paid. Someone should be able to pull trouble codes for a starting point. Its possible the transmission was not the original problem.
This just happened to me. I drove the beetle in the snow and slid up to a stop sign. The slide engaged the anti-lock brakes. After that, the car was sluggish starting out and would not shift into 4th gear.
Turns out, the transmission was stuck in 3rd gear. If you can believe it, this is by design! It's a fail safe mode that gets triggered by the wheels spinning out of sync.
According to my mechanic there are wheel speed sensors on each wheel. If the computer senses the wheels moving at different speeds it will drop into fail safe mode. This requires a special scan tool to clear the codes.
Once the codes were cleared, ran like new.
sounds like the transmission is in limp home mode where it won't shift out of second gear. this is a fail safe mode. If the check engine light is on too then its probably not seeing one of the speed sensors in the transmission. Just need to have the codes pulled in the transmission control module.
The D4 indicator light flashing indicates that your car's computer believes that there is something wrong with your transmission.
This is what the manual for your 2000 Accord says:
The "D4" indicator comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition switch ON (II). If it flashes while driving (in any shift position), it indicates a possible problem in the transmission. Avoid rapid acceleration and have the transmission checked by an authorized Honda dealer as soon as possible.
Sometimes this will mean that you are simply low on transmission fluid, but you really should have it checked.
Yes this will work if it says direct fit oe replacement and not universal. The universal replacements never work because you have to cut the plug off of your and wire it on the new one. The Engine code is the 8th character of the vin. You can also look under the hood on the engine label and get the code there.
A green flashing "S" is similar to a check engine light. It is telling you that something in or on your transmission is not functioning correctly, such as the speed sensor or shift control solenoids. If it starts flashing and the speedometer stops working or the transmission shifts weird, take it to a mechanic.
