D4 blinking, spedometer not working, check engine light on

I have a 95 Honda Accord automatic. On my way home from the beach, my D4 light started blinking. A little while later the check engine light came on. On the way to the beach, before any of the light issues began, my speedometer was working sporadically. After the light began...it's stuck on 20mph and doesn't move. My mechanic replaced the speed sensor and instrument cluster, but the D4 light and check engine light still blink and the speedometer does not work. Any ideas?

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

Just thought I would mention that I had this same problem too. I had 190,000 miles on my 95 Honda Accord LX when the D4 light started blinking. Later on the drive, the speedometer stopped working (it stays at zero) and the check engine light turned on.

I recently had the oil changed in my car, so I thought they might have screwed something up. I don't know what to do about it. I'm worried about taking it to a shop, because I don't want to spend more than its worth to fix it.

It's not always the Transmission Computer. I just replaced mine, and it is still doing it. I also replaced the speed sensor. I dont know what else to fix, cus its not the transmission, cus sometimes it will drive ok, and other times it doesn't want to shift.

Just do not buy 90s Hondas. I had five of them and everything went wrong with them..they are money pits with posses problems, problems and if you take to a shop you better have won the lottery.
Hondas are simply junk.

    You have had 5 Hondas go bad? Either you have no idea how to maintain a car, or you don't know how to properly check a car before buying. Quit buying little ricer cars off of the street. Any car is good if the person driving it is knowledgable. Apparently you're not.

I have a 95 accord and D4 starts blinking and speedometer gozz crazy ya'll know y???


I had the same problem with my 95 accord, your vehicle speed sensor is going bad, the part new is like 100 bucks, you could possibly find one at a junkyard, I had to buy one new, the sensor itself will sit on the passenger side, under the intake hose, its a pain to get to if you have large hands. But it is something that you definitely need replaced

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.

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

Flashing d4 light, engine will not start


Chris, I believe u have 2 problems. The flashing D4 light indicates a transmission problem, which Honda recommends having checked out right away. It wouldn't hurt to change the fluid, there is no filter on the 92 accord. I suspect the problem is more than changing the fluid though. The other problem is only starting in Neutral. This may be a faulty neutral safety switch. It's located at the base of the shift selector, and covered by the console. Let me know if u need directions on how to remove/install it. Good luck.

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!
