Yes problem.

Are you absolutely sure that you need a new one? What are the indications
upon which you base this decision? Is the dashboard gear indicator
flashing? Is the LED on the transmission module itself flashing? If so,
how many times?

There may be a problem with a solenoid connector. There may be a problem
with the throttle position sensor. There may be a problem with the wiring.
The transmission control module fuse may have given its life to protect the
computer.

Had problem with this unit a couple of months
ago.

Dealer replaced at no charge.

Perhaps it was due to the recall on odometer
since the car had 53,000 on it and it should
not have been covered by warranty.

(1) The 's' light does not flash, it is solid.
(2) In cold weather it works fine, the hotter it is, the worse it gets.
(3) It will start off in hot weather working mannually,, then will not
shift out of second when it gets hot.

:-)

I guess I should have indicated that it is a 1990 and has 289,000 miles on
it.

Dealer, I'm sure, would replace, but for more than I want to spend....

I assume that you mean the 'd' (for drive) light or 's' if the gear selector
is in sport mode.

It might be that the shift selector linkage is out of adjustment or perhaps
the throttle control cable needs adjustment.

It would be worthwhile looking at the error indicator on the transmission
control module itself. If it's like my Prelude the TCU is under the carpet
where the passenger's left foot rests.

There's usually a little flap of carpet up under the dash which you can pull
back to look at the error annunciator for the engine control computer. In
order to see the corresponding lamp for the TCU (to the left of the engine
control computer you'll probably have to pull back the carpet. Loosen it up
by removing the push-in fastener just to the left of that little flap of
carpet. You'll also have to unfasten it from the kick panel on the right.
If you reach around the panel you can feel where a hole in the carpet mates
with a fastener on the back of the kick panel.

Once you can see the TCU, turn the ignition to the 'on' position. Starting
the engine is not required. The LED on the module may flash briefly when
power is first applied. Ignore that. If the LED lights after that, count
the number of flashes which indicates where the TCU thinks the problem is.
The error code will repeat and is retained even if the problem temporarily
goes away. (It is reset by pulling the TCU sense fuse under the hood.)

While you're there also note if any error codes are being flashed by the
engine computer.

Yes, somewhere north of US$400.

What's the condition of the transmission fluid? It should be pink and not
smell burnt.

Fluid was replaced, it is pink, no out of the ordinary smell.
It has been a very good auto. I bought a used ATM for 150 bucks.

Just reached my limit of tools, knowledge and physical dexterity....How do
you unhook the bloody wires from this thing?
