Question about 1990 Honda Accord

Open Question

My Honda has an automatic transmission with a sport mode. I get a flashing "S" symbolizing a transmission problem when in regular drive. I can manually shift from 1st to drive fine. The transmission does not want to go from first to drive automatically in normal Drive. I can unhook my battery and re-hook it, which makes the problem go away for a short time. Apparently its an electrical issue, what kind of relays or solenoids are on this transmission that might be the problem?

Why is the sport mode light flashing on my 2000 Cadillac Catera?


Sport Mode Indicator Lamp and Automatic Transmission Warning Lamp (STL)
The sport mode indicator lamp illuminates when the vehicle has been put into the sport mode by pressing the "S" button on the gear selector. When this lamp is illuminated the vehicle will have slightly firmer shifts and increased performance for part and full throttle situations.
This lamp will also flash when there may be a problem with the automatic transmission. The transmission control module (TCM) performs a continual self diagnosis of certain control functions. The lamp will flash only when an error is detected. The TCM will store in memory a current and/or history trouble code when a problem is detected. I'd have it checked out !

No, it is a midsize sedan. The automatic transmission gained a sport-shift mode, where gear selection could be manually chosen.moz-screenshot-4.png4ba4ba2.jpg

What does the highlighted green s means


For an automatic transmission, it is "Sport" mode which basically causes your car to shift at higher than normal RPMs. There is a switch on the shifter to enable it. If it ever starts flashing, that means the transmission control unit (TCU) has discovered an issue somewhere...probably a bad sensor of some sort on the transmission.

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

Drive Symbol is flashing


Indicates a Transmission problem. If you take it into the dealer, they can put it on the computer to diagnose the problem. Might be a pressure switch. Did it stop flashing after you turned off the CR-V and restart it later?
