Hi, basically this is the equivalent of the engine light except it indicates that something may not be right with the transmission. It could be something as simple as a malfunction in a sensor.

Have you checked the fluid? Have you ever changed it? Did you use only Honda recommended fluid? It may simply need to be topped off. Is there any indication of a leak? Is the fluid red or brown? If it isn't red then change it. Drain and refill it at least twice or up to four times for a thorough change. Less than half of the old fluid drains out with each change so it is necessary to drain an refill a number of times to get out most of the old fluid. After doing this check the fluid after using the vehicle for a day or two to see if it needs topping off.

Take it to a place like Autozone or Advance Auto Parts and have them put a code reader on it if changing the fluid or topping it off does not solve the problem. If you have a leak get it fixed.

Check engine light on and D blinking in drive on 2003 CRV

It means that there is a problem with the transmission, this is usually accompanied by a shifting issue and is usually caused by a bad transmission solenoid. Take to a shop to have transmission codes checked to see what the problem is.

2007 tail light fuse location honda crv

I had this problem with my 2007 Honda CRV -- all the lights worked EXCEPT the tail/running lights and the license plate light. The other tail lights worked -- brake, reverse, indicators, and hazards. Front headlights also worked, but when the headlights went on the back tail lights did not (not to safe for driving at night!!)
The fuse was #15 in the interior fuse box (under the dash driver side) with the label "small exterior lights" ( also check fuse #19 labeled "small lights main"). The cause of my problem, I believe, is a bad or lose wire in my license plate light.

Dashboard lights and warning chimes.

The computer detected a fault. You SHOULD NOT drive it around with that blinking, or you will regret it. Take it to the dealership immediately and have them pull the code.
