no, it's more than likely your thermostat not opening and closing when it is supposed to....you could also have low coolant which i would check if you haven't already

D4 light started blinking, speedometer stopped working and mileage gauge


Vehicle speed sensor. Top of the tranny is a connection. From this, a cable runs to the back of the odometer. Probably need to replace it

Check engine lioght is on and d4 light is blinking n when u step on the gas on d4 it doesnt wanna go???? wats wrong wit it


There are many other things that cause the D4 to flash. The D4 light turning off is similar to the CEL turning on. Some codes cause the light to blink, some turn it off. There's an error code stored, pull it and start from there.

Check this DIY: Diagnosis: Pulling Codes

Definitely pull all the codes and let us know what you find. Once we know what the codes are then we can help you troubleshoot the issue/s. Alot owners talk about VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) but the VSS may or may not be part of the issue but per your description it may sound like a main relay to a tranny issue.

Keep us updated.

97 acura CL ABS light goes on What are the potential fixes?


The ABS light can be on for different reason.
sometimes a bad speed sensor on one of the wheels can trigger the ABS light.
The ABS module, or the entire braking sytem may be faulty, to find out there is need to test the ECU/ABS modules usinga code reader, and to inspect the braking system.
