Ck engin lgt on, D4symbol blinking, speedometer erratic

On drive home, 60mph hiway, check engine lgt came on, D4 symbol was blinking, speedometer gauge moving from 0 to real speed. No rise in heat guage, no nasty noises from engine. scared me, never had this problem so I'm worried. best guess? can I drive it to a mechanic tomorrow AM? expensive repair? Best guess? Like all of us, I'm on a tight budget, it would help to have a clue. Safe to drive to a shop if I can find one with time to look? Thanks. Helen

You have a transmission control failure, u will need to have a trans shop do a full diagnostic to confirm what the extrent of the problem is.

    Have the trans tested then u will know what is wrong, it could just be a speed sensor, it is safe to drive.

1995 Honda Odyssey automatic. randomly it will have a slight jerk, then check engine light comes on and d4 light blinks while driving on freeway. the speedometer works fine when these lights appear...

First thing to do is have the computer checked for trouble codes. The blinking D4 light means overdrive is not going to function, probably because of the rough running engine.

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

My speedometer on my 1995 Honda Accord doesn't

Check with the help of a wiring diagram what a common circuit is and trace that circuit for a break or short. Your car is probably in limp home mode.

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.

My speedometer stop working, d light blinking and check comes out

These Accords have common problems with both the instrument clusters & the speedo drive Transducers. It is the Speedo Transducer I would head for first
though,it is located on the top rear of the transmission, over the diff assembly. This is in between where the driveshafts enter the transmission.
It is held in by 1 x 10mm bolt & has an electical connector clipped in to it which from memory has 3 wires. The connector is somewhat triangular in shape
& should be black. Check that this is not full of coolant from your recent thermostat change, however I doubt that this is the problem as they are sealed
pretty well. The chances are it is just faulty. This unit creates an electrical pulse which tells both the speedo & the transmission computer how
fast the vehicle is going. Without it the transmission computer will register a fault (D4 lamp flashing). It also informs the engine computer that there
is a problem which will activate the Check Engine Lamp.

1993 honda accord engine service light is on and Shift drive D4

If the drive light flashes there COULD be a trans problem. The Ck Engine light and the D4 light are on for the same reason. Take it to a qualified repair shop to have it checked out. Find a shop that regularly works on HONDA and not some chain store operation.

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

Speedometer an check engine lights

Try to find the speedo-cable from the firewall down the the transmission. Usually on auto trannys the speedo head (the signal generator which is a gear basicly) is located on the top of the tranny, of course attached to the speedo cable. If it's a 'drive by wire' car and there's no cable - it will require more investigation.
