According to the owner's manual, it suggests having the tranny checked out. When mine started flashing @ 25,000 miles ago I had my transmission checked out. As my ECU does not show codes any longer, I was told that it was most likely a sensor had gone bad, and unless the car started driving poorly, not to worry about it. Apparently that transmission has 5 sensors on it.Like I said....25,000 miles ago. If your ECU still codes properly, an honest transmission guy should be able to isolate the source.

My car is flashin and S3 light and Idk what that means

When the S3 (Transmission) is blinking on the dash, you need to stop trying to start your car and give it a few minutes to chill out. Then turn your key to "on" but without actually starting your car. Put your foot on the break and begin to move your shift up and down slowly. This will insure that you do not have a stick between the engine and the transmission. With the car "on" but not started, continue to move the shifter up and down a few more times. Put it in neutral, with your foot still on the break, and start the engine. This will not work permanently, but will get you from A to B for a little longer. Its most likely the transmission switch failing.

S3 light starts blinking after driving around for a little while. I also notice the speedometer will stop working and then starts back working. When I turn off the ignition this clear the blinking S3...

The transmission's electronic control module is most likely bad I had a 1989 prelude that had the same issue I had to replace the TCM on it after the S3 light came on but my problem was a problem shifting, if you have a electronic speed sensor for the trans. and not a speedometer cable the speed sensor may be bad if you have the cable type change the TCM (transmission control module)

Blinking yellow engine light on dash

it means there is a failure going on and it could cause other damage if keep driving. it is usually a misfire code with a dead cylinder.and all the raw fuel that gets dumped into convertor due to it not firing will cause catylitic convertor damage.
