    Greetings, I noticed the D4 light on the dash was flashing as I was
    Bout to start the engine. I suspect this is a code for a problem. Any
    insight will be appreciated.

    Does the light flash while driving? If so, the shift solenoid is bad.

    What's your mileage, and when did you last change the tranny fluid. Was
    it honda brand? How much did you use?

    Thanks for getting back.

    The mileage is 250k on the body. The tranny was a replacement of my
    last dead tranny. THis replacement was from an accord with about 70k
    miles. And the fluids used are only Honda.

    I checked with the mechanic (that I trust) and he said it was some
    kind of computer code, most likely. I thought I'd run this by this
    group to see if anyone had seen that before. I suspect it is related
    to the ABS somehow. It doesn't make sense to me yet but I'm sure
    they're related.

    It flashed several times when I was having a tough time getting the
    engine to start. I would get the engine started and do it again to see
    if I could re-create it. The ABS light would burn after it started and
    the d4 lamp would blink before it started.
    The ABS light was on and would not go off, the engine was a bit
    difficult to turn ( I'm thinking the abs pump was engaged while
