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.

Go to http://autorepair.about.com/od/enginetroubleshootin1/a/honda_hot_start.htm.
to see if that is the problem, if it is, Partsgeek.com has the part, and HondaPartsDeal.com has manual diagrams that may help you find where the part is located on your vehicle. I recently replaced mine and I have no start problems now.

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.

My d4 light blinks in my 92 accord


What solenoid did you replace? Disconnecting the negative battery cable will reset the flashing light, however, if it goes back on, or fails to reset, you still have an issue to correct with the accord.

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

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

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!
