Check engine light comes on and off, these are indication that there is some error code stored in your vehicles ECM. The engine module computer needs to be scanned. These will give the code and as per the error code the further problem can be detected and confirmed. The engine light indicator blinks or remains steady on dash when engine computer noticed any problem with any engine electrically operated components.

SOURCE: Check engine and d4 lights on

d4 is flashing as a trouble code for the automatic transmission... i would say without research that it is a code for a transmission solenoid. maybe while washing the car some water got in and caused a short...these solenoids are usually weatherproof....you could try disconnscting the battery for 30 secs..to clear the trouble code and then start the car. remember you may lose your preset info!

SOURCE: car will not start when hot, D4 light is flashing, car will start

I had a '91 Accord. When the car would get hot, i.e., sitting closed up in the hot sun, the car would not start. Not even turn over. I don't know what the D4 light is. I called John Eagle in Houston where I bought it brand new. The service supervisor said it was probably the main fuel relay. I think that's what he called it (it's been a few years). This relay shuts the gasoline off to the engine when the car gets too hot. It is a safey thing so that the car won't catch on fire, like in the case of an accident. He said to open all the doors and raise the hood so the car can cool off. Sure enough, after about 15 minutes or so, the car would start right up. If I remember correctly, I think the relay is located under the carpet on/near the firewall on the driver's side. Seems like the Honda OEM part was about $80.00. Don't know if this helps or not, but I thought I would throw in my two cent's. Good luck.

SOURCE: 92 honda accord lx D4 flashes

you have a transmission fault the D4 light blinks to tell you that there is a transmission problem when the light is blinking the transmission computer put the transmission into limp home mode so it will not shift normally and you should try not to drive it very far when it gets to this stage you need to have the transmission codes check to pin point the problem

SOURCE: 92 accord check engine light d4 flashing

This is a typical Honda problem. unfourtunatly their design on the transmissions are not the best. Most of the times when you have a flashing light on the shifter on a honda it is the beginning of an internal transmission problem, not a major one but most likley one of the solonoids in it. just for future reference to you make sure to keep your trans fluid changed on the recommend mileage because they do have an internal filter that is extremley common for plugging up and giving a no shift condition. Hope this helps. swiftautorepairs.com

Car started having trouble going into gear then d4 light started blinking


d4 light indicates electronic transmission failure but this can b as simple as low transmission or old fluid . change fluid if its dark or watery, before you panic.(( use only honda brand atf,)) if that doesnt work the codes need to b considered this can b done by jumping the two pin connector under or behind the glovebox with a paper clip the d4 light will flash once you turn the ignition on to first position' when dash lights first come on . it will flash then stop then flash again you need to count the first and second separately this will give you 2 diget code look it up exp; honda d4 dtc 34 just say google it , but if i were to guess if not the trans fluid the codes will b for sift selinoids easy fix but no fun to change. good luck. you will need a scanner for the check engine light uncommon for both to show up at the same time two diffrent systems ,disconnect the battery for 30second this will reset the ecm, it maybe a false code and it may not return.

Honda 1995 Engine light and D4 flashing...


Hi there;I suggest scanned the computer car in order to know additional fault codes. Check other details HERE.


The Check Engine light may come on, indicating a system problem when, in fact, there is a poor or intermittent electrical connection. First, check the electrical connections, clean or repair connections if necessary.


The Check Engine light and D4 light may light simultaneously when the self-diagnosis indicator blinks.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

D4 is blinking when i drive 1991 acura legend L.


Hi Gregory:

This is an internal transmission failure the check engine light along with the D4 light flashing and the slipping is telling you this. What happens is the clutches internal in the transmission fail and no longer hold pressure and cause the transmission to fail triggering the check engine and D4 light.


Hope this helps.

The D4 light keeps blinking and when this happens the trainny doesnt shift right. I have diconnected the battery, this did work, but did it again after about 3 times driving it.


When the shift lever is in Park, is the D4 light on, or blinking? If the D4 light is on steady, while the shift lever is in Park, chances are your transmission computer has taken a dump on you. If the D4 light is blinking while the shift lever is in Park, the computer has stored a code, that will give you some idea where to look for the problem. Here is a link describing how to retrieve the codes. Good luck.

D4 blinking, spedometer not working, check engine light on


Hi, a few questions 1st. Did your mechanic check for engine codes? Is your Honda a v-6 or 4 cylinder?
The flashing D4 light indicates a possible transmission malfunction. You should avoid rapid acceleration until the cause of the light blinking is determined.
If you have the V-6, there is a diagnostic port to connect a scan tool to read any stored engine codes that have turned on the check engine light. This port is located behind the ashtray in the center console (most cars did not have this til 96).
If you have the 4 cyl engine, there is a service connector located under the dash on the pass. side. Inside the connector is what looks like a 2 wire plug should be attached. Take a paper clip, unbend it, and insert the 2 ends of the clip into the connector to 'jump' it. Turn the ignition switch to the on position (don't start the vehicle), and the check engine light will flash. Count the flashes, short flashes are for code #'s 1 to 9 (single digit code), a 2 digit code will be a long flash for the 1st digit, followed by a short flash for the 2nd digit. If there is more than one code, they will be separated by a pause. They will repeat so you can count them and write them down. Let me know what the code #'s are so I can help further. Curt
