1995 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 164680 miles
On my instrument panel, between my speedometer and tach is a representation of the shifter gears. Current gear is shown by a light (gear-light). As I was driving down the road the gear-light began blinking and my speedo needle was jumping like a kid on a trampoline. I turned all accessories off and continued driving listening for any changes. There were no noises. My car has been sitting for 2 years and I just started driving it again. Prior to it being parked I had been noticing that my mileage was dropping. When I got home I performed a self-test on the car and although the check engine light did not blink the gear-light did again, in groups of 4. So cross referencing with Hanes, I checked the CKP sensor (Crank Position Sensor), determined it to be bad and replaced the distributer 9-24-09. While driving yesterday, 9-25-09, I had the problem occur again. While the light is blinking and speedometer is jumping there is no performance change. Also when I shift into other gears my gear-light still indicates which gear I do into, with the D4 light blinking. It doesn’t do it every time I drive and so far will either fix itself on its own, or work properly if I turn car off for a minute ad then restart.
