Your transmission computer is failing. A common failure, not everybody figures out you can still manually shift it. Well done. There are companies that repair them or exchange them, look online to find one.
I have a 91 accord coupe with an automatic transmission. The letter S on the dash represents the "Sports Shift" designation for the transmission. There should be a small button on the side of your shifter that controls this feature. It sounds like your depressing the button with realizing it.
It sounds like your tcm (transmission control unit) is going bad or it already is, at times when this happens you may also experience the trans not shifting or it gets stuck on a higher gear and will have to shift manually from 1-D.Usually this happens when it's really bad.
The transmission drain plug is located on the passenger side of the case. It has a square fitting, use a 3/8" drive ratchet and extension to remove it.On the 1994-1997 Accords, there is no way to drain the torque converter, or change the filter, without transmission removal, so as a result, you are only changing about half the fluid. Refill it with 2.5 quarts of Dexron or Honda fluid.
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).
