this transmission does not have shift solenoids but does have a kick down cable if that cable is stuck will not let the trans shift. if the cable is in working order then its internal and needs to be rebuilt. find local shop at ATRA.COM for more help

Try shift lock release. On the base of shifter, right side there is a small hole to insert you key, this will release your shifter out of park.

Make sure you also step on the brake.

The automatic transmission in 1992 is electronically controlled. The 4D light staying on* regardless of which D position the shifter is in and being locked into 1st gear usually indicates a problem with shift control solenoid B (reference 1992 Honda Accord Shop Manual page 14-36). Have your mechanic run the service check described on page 14-34 and if it blinks 8 times this is the case (he'll need Test Harness 07LAJ-PT3010A to do the actual test on page 14-47).

* I'm concerned here that you say it "stays on". It should actually blink. If it is just staying on, there might be a second problem in the PGM-FI controller and your mechanic should run the service check on that also (page 11-18). In this condition, the D4 light will remain lit and the transmission will only respond to manual shifting into either 1st gear or 3rd gear. If this condition happens intermittently (and usually when the car is hot from sitting in the sun), it may be caused by loose or half-broken wiring in the transmission control circuit, or in the PGM-FI control circuit. I hope that the shift control solenoid B is the problem 'cause the latter is a pain to locate and repair! LoL

To solve this problem, you need to reset the Throttle Control Unit. With this, transmission problem will be solve. The fault is usually the Automatic Transmission Control Unit so we need to handle this reset option or you can try this. You need to pump your clutch before you shift into 1st gear, if everything is fine then most probably you have problem with hydraulic clutch system, check the clutch line if there is an evidence of fluid leaking or it could be internal leak. You should change transmission oil also to sort out this problem.

For 4D light, there is a button on the side of your gearshift. Press the button and it will turn off the light. It is also designed to help you race in an automatic.
