The blinking light does mean there is a problem with the transmission. You may need an import shop that specializes in Hondas to look at it since most shops won't have the equipment and books to troubleshoot it.
its not to do with your fluid, there is something wrong with the transmission itself, check it checked with a qualified mechanic, the longer time u take to get it repaired, more u end up paying for repairs later on.
In this case, the fix could be as simple as replacing a Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS), or it could be as expensive as replacing the Transmission Control Module. Only examination by a competent mechanic can tell you for sure. Honda Owner's Manual tells you, a blinking D4 light indicates an electronic problem relating to the transmission. And, it also states that failure to fix the electronic problem promptly can lead to more expensive mechanical problems. In other words, don't continue to drive 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. http://home.earthlink.net/~michaelpkeefe/HowTo_Codes.htm
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
It sounds like you have one of a couple problems. First, for the D4 light to be on and flashing, there is a problem the TCM (transmission control module) is seeing. If this is a V6, these transmissions are notorious for having problems internally, and need to be rebuilt at a transmission shop, or replaced. There is also a chance that either the third or fourth gear pressure switches have gone bad they will be the black and brown switches bolted to the top of the transmission. These can also cause this light flashing to occur. I dont understand the rest of your post. If you could clarify what you mean i could try to answer you question a little better
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
The blinking D4 light is your computer telling you that something is wrong with your transmission. You shouldn't have any compatabality problems with the engine and transmission. The downside is that unless you're a pretty compentant mechanic this isn't a easy problem to fix. If you have the time and you want to try to solve this probklem your self go to www.Alldata.com and subscribe to your vehicle. This is the same info the dealer has and will take you step by step to fixing your problem. otherwise its to a mechanic.
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.
