Re: Help with Honda ES - won\'t shift
Actually 2000 - 2002 had a different company building the actuators that control the shifting on the ES.
If it has been a consisitent and on going issue, I would talk to your local dealer and do some research.
Two things to look at, the battery - voltage/corrosion on cables/conections etc. or the sensor that controls the actual shifting mechanism.
The snsor that actually lets the machine know when the gear has been shifted may be faulty. This sensor allows the mnachine to "know" when the actuator has moved enough to shift into another gear.
And there is nothing wrong with the electric shift models. I have friends that have over 9000 miles on them and have no isuues.
