Default 3rd gear pressure switch

The D light on my 2004 CRV keeps flashing and I brought it to a mechanic. They said it is the problem on the 3rd gear pressure switch. So I brought my car to Honda dealer and let them know about the findings from my mechanic. Honda told me that it cost $220 to replace the switch.

Does it sound right? Or it is a rip off? Will other transmission shops do it cheaper?

Spoke with @@MCO, and they told me it only costs $150.
Good to check with couple places before making a decision.

By the way, Co$$man transmission told me that I had to rebuild the transmission instead. What a joke!

You can get the switch from on-line Honda dealer for half that price and do it your self.

Careful, you'll get yourself banned for using swear words like @@mco around here.

Don't open your hood to strangers.

The O.P. should change his tranny fluid and see if the problem goes away before spending money on parts.

Does anyone have a picture on where the switch is located? I saw a photo from a Honda Element but did not find anything for CR-V.

If I can replace the switch myself, I would do that first as changing tranny fluid costs more than the switch.

Also is this part number correct? 28600-RCL-004

My dealer is charging me $153 for the switch replacement, but $120 for them to have read teh computer. I think your price seems high, but it's all about where you live as well. (I'm in Iowa) There is some interesting feedback on my thread - you might want to check that out as well.

Maybe your old, contaminated fluid is the reason the switch isn't working?

www.slhondaparts.com is a great site to bookmark for diagrams and part numbers. If the site is still dead, SEARCH for other recent threads that mention it and you'll find alternate sites described...
