SOURCE: 94 accord d4 light

Hi

It could be from the sounds of it but just to be sure you need to count the flashes and pauses from the light because it is actually flashing a fault code at you.

If you want to check it I think it is located above the brake pedal on a bracket which also mounts a few other gadgets.

It will either be grey or orange.

Regards

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: d4 light flashing and car wont start 92 honda accord

You more than likely have a problem with the TCU (transmission control unit). It may also be other things. You need to seek professional help before spending money on a TCU that may or may not be the problem. It takes an expert to diagnose this problem.

My 97 accord D4 light is blinking and won't shift into any gears, I replaced the ****** and it still doing the same. What can cause this and pplease don't say bad ******. The ****** I got came


4D flashing normally tells you that there is NO way for the ECM to know the transmission temperature, So I would make sure the temp sensor OF THE TRANSMISSION is hooked up properly. Try that and let me know.

If the D4 light is flashing, you have a transmission control failure and you need to get your transmission and transmission control system checked out.

1991 honda accord wagon...the S keeps flashing off and on seems to jump between sport mode and standard...what could this be?


This is your transmission control unit telling you there is a problem. I have another post here (http://www.fixya.com/cars/t5554380-92_honda_accord_d4_light_flashing) with details on how to diagnose. This link says "flashing D4 light" but the issues it the same. 90-91 accords have flashing S lights for TCU errors, and 92-93 have flashing D4 lights.
