Flashing D4 Auto Light

Post by toadster » Thu Feb 07, 2019 7:45 pm

LO All :D
Had a problem with My Lude today :(
It's a 2.0i Auto.
I had a long drive from Norfolk to Bedfordshire without any issues but when I turned on the ingnition and started the car the park light indicator was on as it should be but the D4 green light was flashing :?
I put it into D4 but it only just had any forward drive :?:
I turned off the ingnition and turned back on and this time it was clear and the car drove fine.
I have had the green flashing D4 3 times in total today.
Once the flashing D4 is cleared the auto box is fine.
I drove back from Bedfordshire to Norfolk and it was OK.
I took it to My local garage and that's were I got the 3rd flashing D4 light but they couldn't find the OBD connector to look for error codes.
I'm guessing the Prelude doesn't have a full size 16 pin OBD connector :?:
Any idea's guys
Cheers ;)

Lo All :D
Just checked under both removable panel's each side of the centre console but NO OBD port connector :cry:
Do US Ludes have them and UK models don't :?:
Is there a post on here explaining how to extract error codes :?:
Cheers ;)
