Tranny Problem

Hey guys,

Recently my tranny light been coming on and off. I realize that most of the time that it is on has to do with my battery that is corroded. I cleaned my battery so many times but it still ends up corroding. I know my terminal cables are corroded as well at least the positive side is. Anyone got any good suggestions for swapping out the battery terminal cables to a better one? I'm probably thinking to swap out both the terminal cables as well as the battery. But if it is not the battery that is causing the tranny light keep coming on and off randomly what could be another possibility and how should I check?

if the light for D is coming on and off (not blinking) than it might be the bulb/led for "D" need to be replace.

order the cable from Honda and replace it before it corrodes your fuse box. yes the corrosion will spread to the fuse box and destroy it if not contained.

You don't need a factory battery terminal cable. You can make your own out of 2 or 4 gauge wire a ring terminal and the appropriate sized battery terminal.


More importantly, are you having any drivability issues? When the gear indicator light begins blinking it is usually a sign to change the 3rd and 4th gear pressure switches. There are a couple write-ups on that in the forums.

The D does not blink, its the tranny light on the dash that comes on and off like it will stay on for like few hours or few days then it will go away.

Time to start chasing wires! I have a schematic if you need it but I don't have pictures of the actual locations.

Nah, now THIS is a clean install! I know it isn't all pretty with the valve covers and dress-up stuff but after looking at everyone else's I definitely think this is the cleanest one out there.

It is! Honestly I don't really care at this moment cuz I just want it to get it fixed. Any suggestions on what to get and where? I've seen videos on youtube just wanted suggestions on terminal cables.

Yeah sorry for the thread jack. Go to any parts store and get 5-6 inches of 2ga. and a terminal. The stock location is directly next to the battery just unscrew it. If you are having issues with corrosion on your cables after cleaning them already your problem lies in the battery and you should replace it and clean the contact points on the chassis thoroughly to establish good continuity. Good luck and let me know if you want the diagram to try and chase the leads.

Check the ground for the transmission too, if that is messed up it can cause all sorts of issues.
