d4 blinking check engine tcs light came on

I need some help here so yesterday my d4 light started blinking check engine and tcs all came on after a gentle acceleration down my street, I kinda felt something slip I think but I'm not sure.

I came back home parked it and went inside, came back out tried to move it and it took all of me to even move the shift from park to D4 the button wouldn't budge, once I got it into reverse I backed up to the bottom of my drive and then put it in drive and tried to go forward and it barely would make it up the slope of my driveway, I had to actually push the gas and if I let go of the brake it started rolling backwards on the slope but if I drove to a stop sign and usually the car would creep forward if I let go of the brake but it doesn't move at all until I push it to around 4k rpm.

Before this happened I never really had a problem with the transmission only the occasional hard shift I guess you would call it when going from reverse to D4.

so based on this can anyone tell me if I am screwed or if its just some easy fix.

I have a 2001 Accord V6 with 151k and I am aware of the transmission issues but everything been smooth until now.

Replace your 3rd and 4th gear pressure switches in the transmission.

Does the tranny hesitate when shifting?

I've honestly have had no issues with the tranny other than what I said in the OP its been perfect driving until whatever happened now.

If that's the issue do you know how much that would cost?

Bad pressure switches will make the tranny act funny and cause the D light to blink.

I bought mine for $25 each off Amazon and replaced them myself. You can get them from the dealer for about $50 a piece. If you do it yourself, it won't cost more than $100.

Also, when was the last time you changed your transmission fluid? How does it look now?

Late 6th gen V6s and early 7th gens are notorious for transmission issues.

I will check the fluid when I get home and get back to you but also is there any reason why the button on the gear shift to move it from park barely works now? it took about a minute and half for me to get it to work last night.

WHEN was the last time you changed your transmission fluid? Miles/years ago?

quite honestly its probably been done once if that so I have no timetable to if it happened. its been in the family since we bought it new in 2001 and they can't remember if they ever had it done, my grandparents gave me this car so it basically was driven very conservatively until I got it 2 years ago. but everything else in the car is in immaculate shape and was heavily maintained which kind of makes me want to pay for a new transmission if it comes down to it but hopefully thats not what has to happen.

so I got the courage to drive it up to auto zone, works well in gears 1 and 2, 3 and 4 are horrible.

got a total of 6 codes.

P0401 EGR, I've had this issue once before

P1298 Electrical Load Detector Circuit High Imput

P0135 HO2S-11 Bank 1 Sensor 1 Heater Circuit Malfunction

P0141 HO2S-12 Bank 1 Sensor 2 Heater Circuit Malfunction

P0753 A/T Lockup Solenoid A Circuit Malfunction

P0758 A/T Lockup Solenoid B Circuit Malfunction

if someone would be so kind to translate what all this means it would be very appreciated I don't know a thing about the internals of a car. all I know is the last two have to do with the transmission.

3 & 4 are horrible? The pressure switches are for the 3rd and 4th gear. Many have cured their blinking d light and other issues by replacing them. I suggest you start there.

I will, I really appreciate the help man I've been worrying all day if I had to start saving for a new transmission/car so it's very appreciated.

Shops will many times screw customers into getting a new tranny instead of replacing these switches. RockAuto has them for 25 a piece. Go select your car, then choose Electrical Switch & Relay, and Auto Trans Oil Pressure Switch.

And yes, change out the automatic transmission fluid with Honda DW-1. Perform one drain and fill procedure and see if that, with new 3rd and 4th pressure switches, solve your issue.

There are write-ups on how to do all this. If you have basic tools you can do it at home, unless home is Pike's Peak.

Here you go

P0401 is low flow in the EGR passageways, this is known issue on this engine.
Here is a video on how to fix this
https://youtu.be/CeintOHaHnc

The P1298 code is common too, it is generally caused by bad solder joints on the ELD. You can just replace it. Check out this video.

https://youtu.be/qYVWmQE5tDk


P0135 and P0141 are both heater errors on the O2 sensors on bank 1. First thing to check is the fuse for the heaters it may be bad. Also if the fuse is blown check the wiring to the O2 sensors. It is possible both sensors have bad heaters, they can be tested with a multimeter.

P0753

- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty shift solenoid 'A' valve - Shift solenoid 'A' valve harness or connectors - Shift solenoid 'A' valve circuit is open or shorted

Some 1998–2002 Accord may have a short to ground in the BLK/YEL alternator wire and could cause the ECM/PCM to set the P0753 code and intermittently blow the No. 6 (15A) fuse in the driver’s under-dash fuse/relay box. To fix this problem, you need to repair the damaged wire insulation and replace the blown No. 6 fuse.

The P0758 code is detected when the gear required by the ECM does not match the actual gear when vehicle is driven.

- Low transmission fluid level - Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty shift solenoid 'B' valve
- Shift solenoid 'B' valve harness or connectors
- Shift solenoid 'B' valve circuit is open or shorted


It could be you have an issue with the PNP park/neutral/position switch, that may also be causing the hard shifting out of park.

the solenoids have screens in them . and on occasion you have to remove them and clean the debris out of them . its easy , as the hard part is finding them . sounds like that needs to be done . and change the fluid with " Z1 " only
