It should be underneath the carpet in the Passenger Side behind a Metal Plate. Remove the carpet by peeling it back and then remove the four nuts that hold the Metal Plate in place. Carefully remove and pull the plate back, you will see the TCM bolted to the back of it.

In later model Accords (96+) the ECU and TCM are tied together into one, so the ECU controls everything. Here's a picture to help you identify the Location (click to enlarge):



Also, if its not this it might actually be the Transmission itself. I say this because the ECU rarely goes bad while the 96+ Accord Auto Transmissions are very well known to go bad. Try taking it to a Shop and have them take a look at it. It would be best to get the Transmission & Torque Converter Rebuilt w/ Warranty rather than swapping in a Used one that you dont know its condition (if this is indeed your case).
