Did you check the fluid? Has any service been done to the tranny lately? How about that filter? If no, you might have a couple bad solenoids in the tranny, they can be accessed from the bottom without taking out the tranny, but they are not necessarily the problem. You will have to find out what tranny you have in there and find a website forum that has it on there, you will learn a lot real fast. Check it out, Hope this helps.

You probably have a trouble code stored in the engine computer for a faulty transmission selector switch. The engine computer thinks the trans is in 3rd gear and not park. Or it really could be stuck in third gear.

Why does s3 and s4 on integra start flashing


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

I have a 1990 Maxima, Trans. not shifting out


your transmission is in limp mode. you will need to replace the speed sensor the two are tied together. more than likely you will need the output speed sensor on the transmission.

1990 Nissan 300zx w/ shifting issue


well Im sure theres a ton of miles on it-do u perform reg maint like checkin fluid level-u may need the throttle cable ajusted that hooks to trans-band n clutch could be out of measure too--trans hydra-valve system could be worn--see all these things effect the way the fluid makes the gears move--a pressure test can confirm an aging trans
