Question about 1996 Honda Odyssey

Open Question

Drive light is blinking

Recently the D4 light is blinking, even in park. It does not start to blink right away but it is increasing. I also had the problems my ABS light. From reading the other questions and comments here I have discovered that the sound coming from under the dash board is connected to the ABS. I have put the car in for a service and the mechanic says that his computer is not picking up the ABS light. He says not to worry about it though. The thing now is the blinking D4 light. Also I can hear my radiator bubble/boil when I turn off the car. The gauge in the car reads normal. It had stopped for a few days but this morning it was bubbling again. Help please on the D4 blinking. I don't want to take it back to the mechanic unless I have absolutely have to.

The D4 light blinking indicates there is a diagnostic trouble code stored.When a malfunction occurs,the vehicle computer records the code and stores it,then flashes the D4 light to let you KNOW there is a problem.On pre OBD 2 Honda vehicles,1995 and back,Hondas are manual code read,which means you do NOT hook up a scan tool as there is no scan port.The passenger side front kick panel is removed,and a blue 2 wire connector located.Use a jumper wire to short out the connector,then turn the ignition key on,with engine off,not running.This throws the computer into self diagnostic mode,and the D4 or "s" light will flash a series of flashes.The flashes have to be counted,and written down.For example,2 flashes followed by 4 flashes would be a code 24.The code is then looked up with reference material for a description and diagnostic route.Every diagnostic trouble code,has a diagnostic route,for repairing the problem.Again,this informtion,the diagnostic route,is available in reference material from pay sources like All Data Online.After the repair is made,the battery is disconnected to clear the code.Good luck.

Check fuel pump relay. These are known to fail under elevated temperatures and then work when the temperature drops.

SOURCE: 1996 Honda Odyssey strange, intermittent ABS problem

If you are absolutely sure that the all the abs sensors are good. Then the only other factors are the abs unit itself and the abs computer. Please have the system checked with a a scanner to make sure. Remember the only way to an ABS light will reset is by driving the vehicle and if every component of the system is fine the light will go out. Because your light is on there is a problem in the system and your abs is not functioning when the light is ON .Good Luck

SOURCE: D4 gear lights ( dashboard ) starts blinking even I'm using other gears

Blinking D4 can also mean electical problem. In my case it was ignition switch's life comming to the end. If my ignition switch was finaly dead and I replaced it with a new one D4 was not blinking anymore. If you have problems with ignition switch, for example it will not start engine at first time try to replace it before it will break on the road in least expected moment. I have '95 odyssey. The ignition switch is faulty in time, it was subject of honda factory recall.

Usually it means the speed sensor in the transmission is failing.
The blinking light means your overdrive may not work.

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

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

D4 gear lights ( dashboard ) starts blinking even I'm using other gears


The D4 light blinking is the vehicle computer telling you there is a transmission malfunction and transmission codes are stored in the computer's memory.The codes have to be pulled out manually unless it has an OBD2 connector.A transmission shop or Honda dealer can pull the codes.
