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

I thought I'm just overdrive or underdrive but I've noticed that after starting my car, say setting it to D3, after a few meters, D4 gears in the dashboard starts to blink even though I'll shift to other lower 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.

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.

    My 95 Odyssey has the D4 light flashing all the time. It is caused by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) failing to communicate with the Engine Control Module (ECM), which disables the speedometer and odometer. It's a malfunction of the TCM that Honda wants $720 to replace for the part alone. Not worth the money for a vehicle only worth half that much. Several shops told us it was the speed sensor and replaced it multiple times, to no avail. And NO, the ECM does not store TCM codes, only the TCM does that, but no one I've spoken to has been able to pull codes from the TCM or even tell me if it is possible with this OBD1 system. I've gotten over the frustration of the speedo not working and just drive the car, when it will still run. A faulty ignition switch kept it down for a while and now something else is intermittently causing to not run when cranked.

Which gear do you drive in when you drive d4,d3,2,or 1


D4, that is overdrive in a 4 speed automatic. It should go into 4th gear at about 45 mph, although you may not feel it shift. The only reason to use D3 is if you are driving slow, like in city traffic, and the D4 keeps shifting in and out (from 4th to 3rd and back), as if it is "hunting gears". Most people just put it in D4 and drive away.

I have a 1993 Honda Accord Lx I just got with no manual . Which gear is for driving?


D4 is where you want to spend most of your time as this is the overdrive gear. About the only time you will need to run in D3 is if you are climbing steep grades or, if equipped with a tow kit, pulling a load.

What gear can I used for highway D3 or D4


use d4. d4 is for normal driving. d3 is to down shift the transmission in case you wanna pass. use d3 only if you want to down shift because if you leave your car in d3 on the highway, it doesnt allow the 4th gear to engage, causing your engine to run at higher revs, not only wasting more gas but also making your engines life last less. hope this helps. if you need more help, let me know. goodluck

2003 honda civic you drive on the street with D or


Drive the vehicle in "D". The D selection is the overdrive. You can consider the overdrive as a fourth gear. The D3 is simply third gear, and if driven in D3, the transmission will never shift into overdrive when needed.

check the shift solenoids by using a OHM METER .the both solenoid connectors has 2 terminals 1 and 2 .take ohm meter measure terminal 1 resistance to body ground it should be 14-30 ohms.if less or more replace it.then number 2 terminal to ground.do both the connectors that you disconnect.they should be 14-30 ohms.if less or more replace them.if they check out good .your valve body in transmission is going have to be removed.

I just picked up a 87 honda accord and just want to know what gear i drive it in it has l2 d3 and d4 can you help got me confused


D4 - this gear means that all four automatic gears will be able to work (1,2,3,4)
D3 - Three gears will be able to work (1,2,3)
D2 - Two gears (1,2) - L2 means the same thing
D1 - One (low) gear (1)

For your car, drive it in d4. this means that all forward gears will work, including overdrive (4th gear). It will be fine to leave your car in this gear.
