Why is the sport mode light flashing on my 2000 Cadillac Catera?


Sport Mode Indicator Lamp and Automatic Transmission Warning Lamp (STL)
The sport mode indicator lamp illuminates when the vehicle has been put into the sport mode by pressing the "S" button on the gear selector. When this lamp is illuminated the vehicle will have slightly firmer shifts and increased performance for part and full throttle situations.
This lamp will also flash when there may be a problem with the automatic transmission. The transmission control module (TCM) performs a continual self diagnosis of certain control functions. The lamp will flash only when an error is detected. The TCM will store in memory a current and/or history trouble code when a problem is detected. I'd have it checked out !

Dodge stealth have a problem with the suspension.


It sounds like one or more struts is failing or the gforce sensor under the driver seat is the issue. With the engine off and the ignition on, if you switch between tour and sport with the button you should hear all four struts switching between hard and soft. When driving in tour there is a medium setting that is used in different conditions depending on breaking, turning, acceleration and road undulation. Depending on how the dash lights flash can tell you different things but the only real solution is to have a mitsubishi mechanic read the error code on the ECS diagnostic port under the driver dash. www.3si.org has instructions on how to do this and http://stealth316.com/0-frames.htm has trechnical manuals that help.
The ECS has multiple error codes and can tell you which strut or ecs component is at fault. When a problem is detected the ECS switches to hard mode and starts flashing the tour sport lights until the car is turned off.

My s4 light on my 1989 honda integra is flashing and car only will start when light stops flashing whitch happens when ever it likes 2


I found this one the www.hondacarforum.com
http://www.hondacarforum.com/honda-technical/28562-i-have-1989-honda-integra-can-any-one-tell-me-what-s4-gear-stick.html

You have a couple of choices on this Honda transmission... D and S modes. Consider the D as the normal Drive mode and the S for Sport mode. The difference between the two is that in "D", the transmission will shift through the gears all the way to 4th gear and at lower rpm shift points. In "S", the transmission will shift at higher rpm levels and will go no higher than 3rd gear and light S3 on the dash. Once the vehicle is in 3rd gear (S3) you can then press the S4 button and the transmission will go into 4th gear (when conditions dictate). I believe there is even an S4 indicator on the dash signifying the trans is in 4th gear

The last line looks like it is the key here though.

If the car thinks its in 4th gear when you are trying to start it, obviously it wouldn't start...you could probably hunt around and see if there is a sensor on the transmission stick that runs the "D" vs "S" mode
