    The "s" light on the dash of my 1991 Honda Accord blinked on and off and my car seemed to be slow when I took off from a stop light. I had a used TCU put in 3 months ago and that solved the problem until now. Now, I'm having the same problem all over again. What could be the problem.

My S light flashes too. Never fixed it and the transmission still works beautifully. I'd fix this if I had to take the car in for a similar problem. not an expert, just an owner for 16 years.

I have also found that in 1991 Honda Accord EX with the F22A4 engine that while I'm driving my S light on the console comes on... after a little while of being aware of what was happening I realized it... On the gear shift, mines an automatic, the Sports shift mode is on the shifter. While driving in a relaxed state I would bump the engaging button for this and would cause the S to light up meaning it was in Sports shift mode. Try driving, or just sitting, and engage your Sports shift button, if the light is on when it's engaged, and off when not engaged it could be your bumping it with your leg like I was... Just thought this would be of help.

2001 KIA sportage down shifting by itself and the hold light keeps blinking what could be wrong


a blinking hold light means the transmission control sensor is telling the engine cntrol sensor that something is wrong. Usually it is nothing too serious, mine has been doing it on and off for years, go to a transmission shop that offers free or cheap diagnosis, get several opinios before spending a lot of money

Check engine light on and D blinking in drive on 2003 CRV


It means that there is a problem with the transmission, this is usually accompanied by a shifting issue and is usually caused by a bad transmission solenoid. Take to a shop to have transmission codes checked to see what the problem is.

What is wrong when the "transaction active" light comes on, on the dash board


Transaction? I never seen that. When do you see this come on?
Does it go off or stays on all the time?
I can only think of 2 things:
Traction as in traction control unit goes active meaning it wont slide the rear end under power on rain or snow etc...
Or I have seen an option for towing a trailer where there is a button usually at the end of the shifter lever.
Both of them are ok to have a lite on, if you were to have a problem with transmission you would have the check engine light on and maybe the transmission switch light blinking.
Check you owners manual for a reference of this light.

Check engine light is on, went to auto zone ,checkers and the dealer to have them check it out, came back with transmission slippage, have not notice any slippage, the overdrive light keeps blinking when...


It needs transmission work. Just because you cant feel it, doesnt mean its not there, the trans computer compares shaft speeds and knows theres a problem. If you keep driving it, it will get worse and leave you waliking.

The overdrive lights blinks when I'm driving on the expressway whats that?


The operating system has spotted a problem with the transmission and is blinking the lite as a result. Usually when the light is blinking it means that the transmission isn't capable of, or being allowed to, shift into overdrive. I would have a transmission shop check this one out as soon as possible to see what is causing the light to blink as there may be a more serious problem happening within the system or with a transmission component.

Od light blinking


A blinking OD light on a Ford Explorer means that there has been a fault detected in the transmission operation, a common one is excessive slippage detected between input and output turbine shaft speed sensors, this can be a slipping trans, you may not even fell it, but it is indeed slipping, but lets not get ahead here, go to the Ford dealer and have a system trouble code scan run of the on board, this will reveal the trouble code that the blinking light has set in the computer control for the transmission and give direction to what the cause is. I am a veteran 25 year Ford factory trained dealership tech with master technician certification from Ford..
