    That happens to me 2!! Its very frusturating n i cant figure it out. I have a 90' Acura Integra RS n my s3 light blinks 4 times, then my car wont start. So ill wait about 10 minutes n its start like nothing jus happened, but then while driving, it will randomly shut off n that light starts to blink again.

Anti theft light blinking,dash lights up,windows roll up and down but car wont start. How do I start it?

If the anti theft light is blinking and you say that everything else fine.. My first thought is that the key is not programmed to the vehicle. The key has a internal chip that must be programmed to vehicle in order to start. Now my other question is, Is the key your using for the vehicle the original key or have you just recently had a key made? Regardless, in order for the yur Tribute to start, the key. Or keys have to be program to vehicle by your neighbor dealership. Thats the reason for your anti theft light is blinking

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)

89 acura legend won't start

My 89 had a bad Main Relay located under the dash. I re-soldered the connections and put it back in and the fuel pump worked (listen for itwhen your S3 is out). There may be a bad ground causing the lights to go on and off (ECU?).
