As far as if it will fix your problem.. you trying to get me in trouble and make me tell you yes or no.. but I am not there to see for myself. If I was there.. HERE is a pdf of the procedure I would follow while diagnosing the p0715.. and HERE is the p0740 code on your Accord.

If it is not there, then I am afraid that the problem with your Accord, could be a wrong transmission.
