Not an expert but i too have a '90 accord that had similar sport light and transmission problems. dealer told me it was the tran. shifting computer and not worth the money to repair($1100). i took it to another local guy put a generic computer in it for about $450. no problems for about 6-7 months but now i am having drivers side auto-seat belt problems. don't know whether it is computer related. will post if i find out further solutions.

Um, that's a few different areas covered at once. as for the seatbelt, i would suggest seeing if the fuse for it is blown. if not, more than likely it's the motor located inside the door. the sport light(you have an automatic i gather) might indicate something as simple as a sticky switch. i'm not too sure on that. just remember cars can be as basic to fix as they can be complicated. but if the "sport" mode is going on and off, it means your car is constantly switching overdrive on and off. you may not be getting the gas mileage you want =) haha. your transmission feels weird, well you have a car that is about to be 19 years old. and it has an automatic xmission. granted it's a fine japanese make, but there you have it. i'm more of a manual guy, so i can't offer much in that area. but like i said, check the fuse/motor on the seatbelt. there's really not much to the seatbelt past the switches/fuse/motor. hope i helped. GL, take good care of that car, it's still got a lot of years left in it.

Chevy Blazer 4 x 4 and Engine Light Problems


To your problem with the air bag, I was driving an 07 GMC Sierra 1500 that was doing the same thing. Next thing the charges went on the seat belt tensioners, luckily I was parked because the belts gave me a pretty violent **** back. Turns out the SDM was corroded and caused the action, and there was no reason the air bags didn't deploy as well other than pure luck. I would say get it checked by GM, you don't want to mess around with safety systems. You can visually inspect the integrity of the SDM, it's located under the driver's seat, unfortunately I think the seat has to be removed to see it. Mine had a calcium like build up all over the external casing.

92 Subaru Legacy Power Windows Don't Work


I have a 92 that did the same. After checking fuses and the relay(located under drivers seat) I discovered that the power windows control module on drivers door was bad. Went to a salvage and bought a used for $40, pulled the door panel, unscrewed and unplugged the old one, put in the used one and everything worked fine. About a week later, the passenger side motor went out and replaced that with a used power window motor. All windows now work fine.

Sounds like your ballast resistor is out for the blower motor. You said that you only had 1 speed or off when you turned the fan on. The fan's speeds are made possible by a separate resistor installed on the heater box. The dash switch itself will only work at one speed when the resistor isn't functioning; and eventually the switch will burn out too. The resistor is much easier to change out than the blower motor was, and cheaper too. You can find it on the heater core/blower box by the passenger side footwell You can order the resistor for around $25.00 from a Nissan dealer, the switch itself costs about the same, verses around $90 for the blower motor.. It took me all of 20 minutes to change them out in my Nissan. I really hope you kept your receipt for the new blower motor, because it was probably fine. I'm not sure what you mean about the automated seat belt fuse. I know there is a sensor in each seat that causes the seatbelt indicator light to flash until you plug the belt in. There are 2 wiring harnesses, one for the seat that can tell when weight is on the seat, the other one shuts off the dash indicator when you plug the belt clasp in. Good luck...
