CRV 2003 flashing "D"

I have a problem with my CRV2003 80K milage where the drive "D" flashes when the car runs about 5km. It continues flashing though it does not show sign of breaking, no noise or no engine malfunction. When I turn off the engine the flashing stops but then continue again after 10km.

Can anyone give me a hint on where the problem coming from?

many thanks in advance.....sonny

    Thanks for the advise. I will wait for anymore added guesses. This might be the problem. I wonder if the switch is inside the transmission or outside. also my CRV has automatic transmission.

    Thanks again.

    The problem is with my 2002 Honda CR-V. The D light just started flashing when we were driving along. Once we stopped, turned it off, and restarted the car, it stopped blinking -- only to start again once we got going. Should I be concerned to drive it?

Mazda tribute 2003 with 106,000 miles enging light flashing the car shakes when idlle and lwoers when driving

If the check engine light is flashing you should probably get it scanned to see which coil(S) need replacing. When the light flashes it means that something is seriously wrong. STOP driving. If you continue to drive it will melt your catalytic converters. I have had customers that get the misfire issues repaired and come back maybe a month or two later with burnt converters. Converters are not cheap either.

Instrument panel on 2003 Honda CRV starts flashing when headlights are on

Have had a similar experience with my 2000 Ford Windstar. The extra load added by turning on the headlights affects the instrumentation power feed. The illumination flickers and the gages go crazy. Your 2003 CRV may have its original battery which is near death. It took me four batteries to stabilize things and I still get the flickers at night sometimes

My honda crv engine check flashes when the engine is running

when a check engine light is flashing it means you have serious problem that could cause major damage like lots of misfires from poor tune up components which will cause a clogged catalyic converter or a lean condition which could burn valves stop driving it and have it scanned

Transmission question

Yes basically its the same as a check engine light, except its a transmission problem. It could be somthing as simple as a sensor got the wrong reading the one time and it may never happen again, Or it could be somthing more major.

first id say check the transmisson fluid. If its low add some fluid ( id only use OEM honda fluid) if the light continues to flash take it to a autoparts store or shop to have the code read

The "D"[drive] light flashing whilst driving 2003 CRV

your transmission may be low in fluid
s should have been checked when you went in for a service
have it checked by a different mechanic
a lot of mechanics forget or just dont check the level in it
you may be bale to check it your self
look in the servicing you car part in your owners manual
there is a dip stick in your motor bay just like checking your oil
most cars have to be checked with in the first 5 seconds of the car running
just check what it says in the owners manual about "maintenance" and follow what it says
let me know if this helps
