Icon3 P1705 PLEASE HELP!

My car was acting just fine.
Then my check engine light comes on.
My car was in Drive, and the d starts blinking, but now the D3 light is on as if it was in d3.
I stop the car and put it in park, and the D is still blinking.

New tranny was put in it before I bought the car 10,000 miles ago.

Any suggestions on what I need to do?

I can't ever get honda parts around here, so I am going to have to order them somewhere.

PLEASE give me GOOD advice on what I should do.

I don't have technology to test it.
I don't have the money for Honda to test it.
I'm sure I have money for the parts, but where to get it?
Ahhh. this is just not my week >.< Thanks for your post

Test to see whether it's the switch simply by unhooking the connector and turning on the ignition. But if you want to just buy the switch: http://www.hondapartscheap.com/southbay/jsp/home.jsp Look under "AT RIGHT SIDE COVER ".

*Edited 'cause I was probably a little harsh.

It was my neutral safety switch.
I got that put on.
Then, found out that the smoke coming from my hood wasnt the thermostat housing that I had changed, but a crack in my radiator. Now, waiting on the radiator to get here to change that out.

When I looked on carfax before i got the car, nothing showed up. I checked it the other day. and there is 24 reports on my car... yipes... too bad i can't afford to find out what they all say... lol.

I know now, that is had been in a wreck, because when I was vaccuming it out i found glass in the seat. and my boyfriend pointed out a spot in the door that they didn't repaint....

So many problems... and now, i also found that the plastic cover in my cam shaft is leaking oil?? what is this and how can I fix it if anyone knows.

Are you referring to the plastic end plug? It's easy to replace, but it's best to remove the valve cover and work from inside.

I've heard of people just prying the old one out with a screwdriver, but you run the risk of braking one of the plug tabs off and having fall into the head while removing the old one.

Also, make sure to apply a little bit of oil (preferably fresh) to the seal before you install the plug.

That's what I was asking about.

What "plastic cover" are you talking about? There is no plastic cover for the camshaft, but there is a plastic end plug / seal.
