Transmission problem
1995 Honda Accord 4 cyl

While driving often my car will just stop automatically shifting leaving me to have to get off the road in 1st and 2nd gear only. When this happens, my speedometer stops working also. This happens periodically.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi Barbara,

Seems you have some problem with the TCM. Was the D4 light blinking when the trans acted up?

The speedometer stopped working before or after the trans decided not to shift?

Yes, the D4 light is still blinking. Not sure if the speedometer stopped right before or after. It seemed like it was about the same time. What is a TCM?

Hi Barbara,

I would suggesst checking the speed sensor, it most probably requires replacement. A faulty speed sensor will cause the trans to shift abnormally.

TCM = transmission control module, ie, tran computer.

Thank you. I will have the speed sensor checked and let you know how my "Guam Bomb" does; hope that will fix the problem.

Hi Barbara,

If the D4 is still blinking after driving, there must be a sensor that is not functioning.

Bridge the SCS connector behind the glove compartment and count the number of blinks on the D4 with ignition switch turned on. Let me know and we will see what needs to be done.

Hi Barbara,

Thanks for the offer, but guess I am too old to be looking for a new job in a new place.

One of our mods is from Guam, maybe he can help you ;)
