My 92 honda was stuck in low (1st) gear. D4 light stayed on even when in other gears. Car did not throw any codes. Also the door open and truck open indicator lights would all stay lit.


It sounds like you have a Bad Shift Solenoid that is shorting out, Cleaning the Solenoid probably moved the "WIRE" and then when reinstalled, worked it way back. If the Shorting of the Shift Solenoid causes the issue with the PCM/TCM, then either your PCM did not have an issue or the Solenoid just took out your new PCM due to not repairing the issue the first time. I personally would start out with changing the Solenoids (ALL OF THEM) and Un-Plugging the PCM while doing the repair. This will do a reset for you.

D4 light on no matter what gear i'm in. 95 Honda Accord LX 4-cylinder. Already replaced solinoid, speedometer, fan,


The D4 light is coming on to tell you that there is one or more fault codes set in your transmission control module. The only way to retrieve codes on the 1995 models is to read "Flash Codes" output by the D4 light. (See instructions below)

RETRIEVING FLASH CODES USING THE D4 LIGHT
If fault codes are present, the D4 light will "blink" when the ignition is turned to the RUN position and will remain on at all times when the engine is running.
To retrieve the flash codes, turn the ignition switch off.
Install a jumper wire between the service check connector terminals.
The service check connector is a gray, 2-pin connector located on the PCM/TCM cover under the passenger side of the instrument panel. (See picture below)

CAUTION: DO NOT use the 3-pin located next to the service check connector.

Installing the jumper will place the PCM/TCM in diagnostic test mode.
Turn the ignition to the RUN position. Codes will be output by blinking the D4 light.
Note the number of blinks from the D4 light. A short blink indicates a single digit flash code. A long blink equals 10 short blinks. For instance one short blink indicates code 1. One long blink and four short blinks indicates code 14. If there is more than one fault code, they will be output one at a time from the lowest numbered code to the highest numbered code. It is recommended that you read the code or codes several times to make sure that you are reading it correctly.

Once you have retrieved the fault code(s) re-post your question and include the information for what codes you have and someone can then help you locate the cause of the problem.

My came with a code po734 is that a big problem?


DTC P0734 - Improper Ratio for Fourth Gear.
P0734 is detected when A/T cannot be shifted to the 4th gear position even if electrical circuit is good.

This diagnosis monitors actual gear position by checking the torque converter slip ratio calculated by Transmission Control Module (TCM) as follows:

Torque converter slip ratio = A x C/B

A: Output shaft revolution signal from revolution sensor
B: Engine speed signal from Engine Control Module (ECM)
C: Gear ratio determined as gear position which TCM supposes

If the actual gear position is higher than the position (4th) supposed by TCM, the slip ratio will be more than normal. In case the ratio exceeds the specified value, TCM judges this diagnosis malfunction.

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Incorrect transmission shifting

Possible causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

Tech notes: Start by inspecting the transmission fluid level and condition, and change fluid if necessary.


Test and check it and send us ypur comments.

92 Accord Automatic shifting


Has anyone change the transmission fluid and used anything other than Honda ATF-Z1. If so, have the fluid/filter changed in this car and use only Honda Fluid. This is the only fluid that you can use in a Honda. Even if you have used the correct fluid an fluid/filter change may help. If that is not the case then I suggest you seek out a trusted professional.

D4 Light Stays on


I suspect that you have a bad Transmission control module. These were a very common problem in the early 1990's Accords. The TCM is located under the passenger floor mat next to the Engine computer. If you are comfortable doing this yourself, the rebuilt TCMs are available on Ebay very reasonably. Google "accord tcm" for more info.

Blinking light means there is a trouble code.There is a procedure to manually pull codes from the computer.Have the codes checked,have them written down.It could be just shift solenoids,or could even be something more serious,but thats the starting point.
