Here are the instructions from Sonnax and some pictures I took while adjusting my solenoids to help you out. Also while you are in there pull out the 3 little pipe filters and clean out any debris that may be in them. Do not lose the 3 orings that go around the filters when pulling them out. The first picture here is from Sonnax of the Solenoid Block removed and upside down.

Cool, thanks! Glad to see solenoids on the outside of the transmission instead of inside like on Nissan automatics.

I just replaced both pressure sensors using 28600-p7z-003. However i noticed that while the engine is idling at park, the "D" light indicator kept on flashing. I also tried to reset the ECU by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes but it continued to flash. Please advise

If you are a 7th Generation owner then why did you put 2 6th Generation shift pressure sensors in your car?

For the 7th Generation the part numbers are:

28600-ray-003
28610-ray-003

You can leave the lower shift sensor in as it is the same shift pressure but the top 4th gear shift sensor (the one you can see without a cover over it) will need to be replaced with the correct part. For now just put your old one back in and order up the new correct one. Here is a picture to show the old and new style shift pressure sensors for the 7th Generation Accord. The top one should be beige/brown in color and is easy to see by just turning the wheel of the car.

I have access to both Honda and Acura parts for dirt cheap so I purhcased the TL sensors to see the difference, besides, I can always use these sensors with my wife's 2001 TL. With both TL sensors, the shift is much smoother except the flashing light is very annoying. I'm going to try mix matching the sensors as noted above. Thanks for the info.

PS:
I do have an 04 V6 but the "7" is actually for my 3rd Gen RX-7 since I'm a rotary lover and my name is Gene. I just realized that 04 Accord (my DD) is a 7 gen Accord. lol

heres an update. replacing the 3rd gear sensor made a big difference. No more sudden downshifting when I left off the gas pedal and much smooter transition between gears. Btw, I have an external oil cooler with magnefine in-line filter (factory filter eliminated) and trans solenoid untouched. Thanks

I know this thread is pretty old but I'm hoping to get more info. For those of you that put in the new sensors a while back according to jastors posts, how has the transmission been holding up for you.

My transmission started slipping while changing gears intermittently a few months ago but it is still working. When it first started I had my transmission fluid flushed a couple of times and it seemed to have helped quite a bit.

I am thinking of replacing the sensors to see if the problem will be eliminated completely.

Hi, everyone - on a 7th Gen (2005) V6 5AT that's got 1st-2nd gear shifting issues, can anyone direct me as to which AT pressure switches I order? I found the photo of the snesors shared by Jaster above. Thanks for a great discussion thread.

Can someone confirm whether to turn both A & B screws CLOCKWISE or CLOCKWISE on A then COUNTER CLOCKWISE on B? Thanks.
