Default 2000 Accord LX Transmission Issue P0700 and P0730

I have been having an issue with my Transmission, It appears that it having trouble engaging gears... It is an automatic transmission. Sometimes when I am in D3, when try to accelerate, only the RPM accelerate, just like the car is in neutral, other times it will be Fine. the issue always occurs if I shift into "1" and then try to accelerate

I have pulled the codes from my OBD-II port and I have received:

P0700 - Transmission Control System Malfunction
P0730 - Incorrect Gear Ratio

I really hope that the entire transmission does not need to be replaced. Hopefully it is a computer issue or something.

Any advise you can give me is greatly appreciated

Thanks,
Tom

well I'll start off by saying your symptoms sound familiar.... ( I haven't reveiewed the codes...) there is a class action suit against honda right now for their 00 automatic trannies... they start to exhibit what you have and then they slowly go out, search the forum for "Tranny Suit" and you'll find a post all about it.... Hopefully I'm wrong but it sounds like you're about to be hosed....

yeah this sucks... I am over 100,000 miles... however the problem I am having is weird.... if I disconnect the battery for about 10 min, the car will be fine for about 40-50 miles which leads me to believe that this is a Computer problem.
