DIY on how to check Shift Control Solenoid for 90-93 Honda Accords
TCU Error codes are indicated by the "S" light on 90-91 models, and the
"D4" light on 92-93 models. The codes can be read in the same way, with
paperclip method, as the ECU codes, by counting the flashes of these
1. If your check engine light is on, start by going to your passenger side
There should be a blue connector w/2 wires to it. Put a paper clip or piece
of wire in to the connector to connect the two prongs.
2. Put the key in the ignition, and turn the key 2 clicks to the acc on,
where all the lights light up on the dash.
3. You will now watch how many times the S/D4 light blinks.
a long blink = 10
a short blink = 1
It will repeat after all the codes are done.
4. Compare to this list to see what the problem is:
0-Transmission control unit (TCU) faulty.
1-Lock-up solenoid 'A' circuit open or shorted.
2-Lock-up solenoid 'B' circuit open or shorted.
3-Throttle Position Sensor circuit open or shorted.
