Question about 1995 Honda Accord
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.

This was a common problem in the 90's the problem is a bad transmission computer .The part is about $250 that is why the D4 light is flashing i am sure that right now you do not have over drive:)
