Asked by Kim Dec 03, 2011 at 09:58 PM about the 1996 Honda Passport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1996 4x4 V6 automatic, when trans light came on the power windows stopped working at the same time. I have been told these trucks have a lot of electrical problems. Wondering if that may be real problem since i was not having any issues with the transmission prior to the light coming on. Maybe Output Speed Sensor? Any ideas

You may want to have the transmission serviced. I just replaced a transmission on a 1998 Honda Passport. These aren't actually Honda's, they're Isuzu, but more honestly, they are total Mutts! The Transmission is a GM tranny made in France. Its a closed system, and sometimes the filter bolts loosen, and the whole filter and bolts are left on the bottom of the transmission fluid pan. If you're handy, jack up the car a little, and get under there yourself. It doesn't take long to take off the tranny fluid pan and check the filter. A new filter kit and gasket costs about $25. Otherwise, have a shop service it, and get new fluid in there. Tip: The electrical circuits on this car are a bit complicated and strange. The transmission circuits are connected to many other strange parts. For instance, when my tranny went bad, the rear lights started acting funny and not working. Your 1996 has a different body style, so maybe the windows are connected to the transmission circuit, and if the tranny isn't working perfectly, then it could affect whole other systems. You could have a bad solenoid in your tranny, which is easy to access also. Do you have winter mode in this rig? Sounds like your first gear clutch may be going out. If your filter isn't bolted in correctly, your whole system will start to fail. Start there.
