Look at your VSS, or vehicle speed sensor. This will cause all the above symptoms, as the computer controls the transmission, and the sensor would fault the computer, as well as providing intermittent data to the computer concerning your speed and distance.

RESET THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON THE 99 HONDA ACCORD


THIS IS HOW YOU RESET THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON THE 99 HONDA ACCORD. 1. With the Car Off, Press and hold down the Odometer Trip Reset Button. 2. While still pressing the Trip Reset Button, Turn the Ignition Key half way on where all your oil, check engine lights etc.. turn on. Don't turn it as far as you would to normally start the car. Wait a few seconds and the Check engine light will turn off. 3. Turn the key back to the Off position and you're done. What a scam Honda has with the BS Check Engine Light.

hi it sounds like a sensor may be faulty or getting worn, luckily you dont need equipment to check codes, look under the dash on drivers side and you will see 2 small black plugs close together plug them in with the car off but key on acc and the check light will flash codes, slow then fast. for example if 4 times slow then 2 times fast it means code 42 then just google it for the code meanings

Computer problem?


this is defiantly a CPU issue but, at the least, it could be a fuse box issue as well. check both to be safe.. oh, some stereos that are purchased and installed incorrectly can cause this as well.
