The code 9 is for trouble with the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) circuit. Keep in mind that the speed sensor signal branches off to the speedometer, the Cruise Control unit the ECM (Engine Control Module) and the TCM (Transmission Control Module). You must have a wire or loose connection at the TCM, then I suggest check the connection of the white/blue wire at the TCM. It's an 18 pin grey connector. I'm not sure, but you might have to remove the TCM.

Hope this helps.

Welcome to Fixya

Error 9 is definitely a CYL sensor problem. Please see this link. You may get this code also if timing is off at all at distributor this code gets thrown at random. I'm sure the timing belt is timed correctly but check to make sure the distributor isn't loose and its set in the acceptable timing range.

Thank you for using Fixya!

My 1990 honda accord for some time has had the s(green) light blinking off and on, had it is solid S green and it seems as it won't shift gears, I don't have power like before? what happened?


The flashing s light means a transmission problem. The transmission computer is under the carpet on passenger side under where you put your feet. Pull down the carpet to see the diagnostic light. Turn on the key to count the flashes to get the code. Pulll a list of codes from the internet.
If your trans shifts properly if you manually shift it thru the gears, going from D1, D2 D3 but feels like it is starting in second when in drive at a stop, the computer is probably the issue, and can be repaired or exchanged for a good computer, lots of companies do this ,find 1 on the internet.

Where is the transmission dipstick on a 1990 honda prelude si


I only know about the dipstick for the automatic transmission.
It is located to the passenger side of center and is burried dwon very deep - you almost have to reach full-arms-length down, between hoses and air duct to reach it. It has a wire loop handle usually covered in orange/yellow rubber. All total it is about 6 inches long when removed. It is so hard to find that I thought mine was missing and bought another one before I found it.

How do I get a code from computer in 91 honda prelude


UNDER THE GLOVEBOX INSIDE THE PASSENGER KICKPLATE NEAR THE FLOOR IS A TWO WIRE CONNECTOR BEHIND THE PANEL. JUMP THIS CONNECTOR WITH A PAPER-CLIP AND TURN THE IGNITION SWITCH ON AND WATCH THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT TO COUNT THE FLASHES. ONE LONG FLASH AND THREE SHORT ONES INDICATES A CODE OF 13. IF THERE IS MORE THAN ONE CODE THEN IT WILL FOLLOW THE FIRST CODE. THIS WILL SOLVE YOUR TROUBLES I AM SURE. LET ME KNOW. GOOD LUCK. P.S. IF YOU WANT TO ERASE THE CODE(S) THEN DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL FOR 10 SECONDS. BUT YOU'LL HAVE TO RESET THE CLOCK AND PRESETS.

Auto transmission


I believe this is a warning of a transmission problem (flashing S4 light), and u should have it checked by a good trans. shop or dealer. When The engine light comes on and stays on,(does it only go on when the S4 light flashes?)it is a warning of a problem (fuel injection/emissions system), which u can check by doing the following: There is a Electronic Control Unit (ECU), located under the carpet on the passenger (front) side near where your feet would be. There is an LED display on the ECU, the display is a small circle, I believe located at the top center of the ECU. When u get the ECU exposed(by pulling back the carpet), turn the key on, and observe the LED. If any codes were stored regarding a problem, the LED will flash. Count the flashes, Codes 1 thru 9 are a series of short flashes, two digit codes use a long flash for the 1st digit, and a short flash for the 2nd digit. Codes are separted by a pause between displays. If u have multiple codes , they are transmitted in a alternating pattern. Time and space make it hassle to list all codes ( there are 19 for the 91 Prelude), so if u want to go ahead and check the codes, let me know what they are , and I'll tell u what they mean. Good Luck! countrycurt0
