What do you do if the S for sport is blinking green on a 1990 Honda Accord 2.2 and will not stop?

This is an possible indication of a transmission problem. Take it to a professional. More than likely its your speed sensor. Its on the transmission and is triangular in shape. I tried to reset the speed sensor, by pushing the Sport button on the gear shifter before starting the car, and that automatically resets the speed sensor, turn off engine after one minute of idle. Release button on the shifter and restart the car. Blinking should stop. If not go to your mechanic and replace speed sensor.

Does the speed sensor have to match the year of the transmission in the car or the year of the car itself?

the speed sensor '''MUST''' match the transmission, simply because the transmition is the one providing the speed info.(most are color coded and splined)
