It was above freezing today and it struggled to make it from first to second gear. After that, it was fine.
It has new transmission fluid in it.
This transmission was the smoothest shifting I've ever driven. It never missed a shift even in sub-zero temperatures.
I had the recall done in the fall which updated the software. Now it doesn't shift right out of first gear. I'm not happy.

Hondas are picky when it comes with transmission fluid. Do you know that the fresh fluid is genuine Honda transmission fluid?

........unsure which transmission/recall you are addressing...........
If you mean the Honda 6-speed manual (has a clutch, right?), you might consider the GM/Delco Friction Modified SynchroMesh goo.
My 6M transmission has 47,000 miles on this fluid. No 3rd gear hesitation/popout. Not one. No TSB (worried about tech ineptitude)......
The stuff really works.

I had it replaced at the Honda dealer. They used the new Honda fluid.

It was the recall where the software was updated on the 5 speed transmissions for 2005 Accords.
It had to do with rocking the car, which I don't do.
Now the shift points are really relaxed....in fact, too relaxed when it's cold.
#5803 of 5868 Trunk light issue
Feb 21, 2012 (11:57 pm)
I have a 2005 Honda Accord sedan and my trunk light doesn't turn on when the trunk is open. I checked the bulb and related fuses but it won't come on. By accident I left the trunk open while backing out of my driveway and the red light that appears on the dash board when a door is open didn't turn on. I wonder if the switch or connection is faulty? Anyone have this issue and if so what did you do to remedy it? Thanks.

I checked my 04 Accord and here is what I found. On the right side of the latch mechanism under the lid, you'll see a connector plugged into the mechanism, the wires trail off and into the lid. I unplugged the white connector and the light went off, plugging back in and the light's back on. You might want to check the connector to see it's properly connected. I would also guess that shorting the 2 wires in the plug will bypass the latch and light up the lamp.

I have got the exact same problem (power windows not working, key fop not locking/unlocking, drivers side power locks not working) on my 03 Accord. Did you ever find a resolution to the issue?

just replying to a post from Honda about the radio going dark......... does that apply to Canada? I have a 2004 accord with 92000 km. Would greatly appreciate your help. I know the posting is old from 2007 but this could be great news. Thanks
