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.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: 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.

If the TCS light is on and the D4 light is blinking, this indicates that there is a transmission control problem. You must scan your onboard computer network fo fault codes to begin diagnosis.

D4 blinking 1995 honda accord


This is involved. When the D4 light blinks, it is indicating a problem with the input or output systems for the A/T. If you find your Service Check Connector (it should be near or at the top of the kick panel on the passenger's side; it's usually blue and has two holes in it; it is at the end of a wire so don't look for a fixed unit; it is often simply tucked in behind the top of the kick panel. You should pull the kick panel out to find it) you can insert a paper clip so that it connects the two holes. Then, if you turn your ignition to ON II (do not start the car) the D4 light will blink out a code, using both long and short blinks. The blinks have to be carefully counted. Problem codes 1 through 9 care indicated by short blinks. Problem codes 10 through 15 are indicated by a series of long and short blinks (you have to add them together to get the code).

I tell you all this to indicate that the procedure is fairly involved, and since you probably don't have a list of what the codes mean, I would have to say that it would be best to find, if you can, a Honda dealer to read the codes and check your transmission. Most of these problems are connector or sensor related and are usually indicated by the transmission not shifting from one gear to another, or by the transmission jerking hard when it shifts. If your having no problems and you are in a position to not have access to a Honda service department, you can find the backup radio fuse in your engine compartment fuse box and take it out(not with the car running) for 10 seconds or so, then put it back. It will clear the computer. If the D4 starts blinking again, it would indicate that the warning was not just a glitch.
I really hope that this is helpful; I'm sorry if it is only disheartening.

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.
