1992 accord (d4) light stays on and only have 2nd and overdrive

To begin with, I had 1st and 3rd gears for a few miles and then overdrive would be available. Now (d4) light stays on all the time and I only have 2nd and overdrive. Could it be the transmission control module or something more expensive?

Same problem, only 2nd and 4th gears (92 ex, auto with 175k). Missed diagnosed by previous mechanics, replaced engine coolant sensor. Couldn't figure that one out? Went back because problem reoccured within a week and now much worse than before. They diagnosed as bad TCM this time and want over $700 to fix, in addition to the other $300 I spent. Said a resister was burnt on the board. Did not believe them. I pulled the board myself (located under the pass. floor mat, disconnect battery, remove four screws and pull the wiring out and open it up). Looked at board myself did not see anything wrong, but does not mean that it isn't bad. Research on the web said that it might be a bad release solenoid on the shift handle? It's located in the center console underneath the plastic covering near the park brake. That checked out ok. So I ordered a TCM from allcomputerresources.com ($155) should be here in a couple of days. I hope this helps me and you. Good luck.

I have a 1993 Honda Accord Lx I just got with no manual . Which gear is for driving?


D4 is where you want to spend most of your time as this is the overdrive gear. About the only time you will need to run in D3 is if you are climbing steep grades or, if equipped with a tow kit, pulling a load.

My 92 honda was stuck in low (1st) gear. D4 light stayed on even when in other gears. Car did not throw any codes. Also the door open and truck open indicator lights would all stay lit.


It sounds like you have a Bad Shift Solenoid that is shorting out, Cleaning the Solenoid probably moved the "WIRE" and then when reinstalled, worked it way back. If the Shorting of the Shift Solenoid causes the issue with the PCM/TCM, then either your PCM did not have an issue or the Solenoid just took out your new PCM due to not repairing the issue the first time. I personally would start out with changing the Solenoids (ALL OF THEM) and Un-Plugging the PCM while doing the repair. This will do a reset for you.
