The problem may be connected with the shaving on the pan. It may or may not be related to the issue that you have. You mention that the issue only occurs when the car has warmed up. This may indicate a problem has something to do with the lubricant. Check for leaks underneath by placing news paper underneath the car then check if there is fluid in the morning. There could be an issue with some of the oil seals in the transmission. Double check the fluid levels if it changes or drops from the factory specified levels. The leaks may not necessarily mean that you would see oil dripping from the car but the oil may stay on the outer housing of the transmission. Pay close attention to how many times you are able to shift to identify where the shifting ends. The shifting can be controlled by either a cable or electronically. If it is a cable, then check if it is worn out. For an electrical transmission you should see wiring towards the transmission. Check the condition. An electronically controlled transmission would get signal from a speed sensor for its shifting. Have have velocity sensor checked. This is normally a cheaper fix than having the transmission repaired. Observe also if there is a burnt smell. If there is you may have to have the transmission serviced as the transmission may be giving off to much heat damaging internal parts. The longer that you run the car without having it fixed would cause more damages.

I have a 1991 accord lx. Was only functioning in

No, those sensors are seperate from transmission, should be a solenoid that is electrically controlled inside the transmission that controls the shifting.

First and foremost, check the fluid! Second, check ALL the vacuum lines in the vehicle. Now as for the fuse... referencing the shop manual, I can not find a transmission related fuse. Did you try checking the trouble codes, if any?
