Go over to the "Problem" forum and look for the "flashing shift indicator" thread. 4'th gear pressure switch seems to be the leading cause among a few others. I have never changed it but the thread says DIY'ers can handle it or take it to your friendly Honda dealer repair shop.

Good luck...

Well the D light goes out and the engine light stays on and Honda wants $80 bucks just to scan? Should I just take it to a trani. shop?

In my opinion you should NOT pay the stealer $80 to scan your truck to get the error code(s) but it would be helpful to know the code(s). So, take it your nearest Autozone. They have a code scanner that they will let you use for free to scan your codes. If you don't know how then they will usually do it for you, also for nothing. Then once you know the codes, someone here or a mechanic can answer you more informatively about what may be going on.

If you don't have an Autozone near you, you could actually BUY a code scanner for less than $80. A lot less.

Good luck.

Ok the code from AutoZone was P0763

I left the Pilot at a Tran. shop for the past two days and they said it must be an inside problem because eveything else checked out fine?! He said it would could run me between $600 and higher!!!! However he said it should be fine to drive that he saw nothing wrong if I could stand the CEL on? I am not sure what to do now

Take it to Hinda so they can read the transmission code and fix the right part before it does damage.

Ok talked to the dealer they are going to clear all codes since I recently had a bad battery to make sure that did not cause it then if it comes on again it would be quicker to pin point the problem. We shall see....

That code indicates a problem with the shift solenoid in the transmission, which is electrical, so maybe the dealer's idea to reset and watch it isn't a bad one. If it happens again, I would let the dealer handle it, not a standard transmission shop.

Good luck!

Well so far so good...the guy at the dealer was very nice they had a huge line and he just came over and sat down and cleared all of the old ones for no charge. He did let me know that it is time for my timing belt to be changed is that a dealer only thing too?

IS Hinda the people that put "Hundles" on their vehicles?

Angry Flashing "D" Indicator - $4000 repair from Dealer !!!

2005 Pilot
60,000mi
recent service done + transmission fluid changed.

Read a lot about the D flashing issue and other issues here is my $4000.00 story from the Dealer.

Anyone know what P0700 really means???

My transmission "D" light on the dashboard started to flash every so many days just like a lot od other mambers. Read thru other posts and no one really have to replace the whole transmission.

Anyway, I took the car to Honda and they pull codes P0700, P0845 & P1740.
They explained:
P0700 = Auto Transmission Control System
P0845 = problem in 3rd clutch pressure switch circuit
P1740 = problem in 4th clutch pressure switch circuit

However, the dealer said they can NOT just replace the 3rd & 4th clutch pressure switches per codes P0845 & P1740. But they have to replace the WHOLE transmission because there is a code P0700.

I just thought if it is really necessary to replace the whole Tran when there is a code P0700 per the dealer???
Or
Can the problems be solved by just replacing the 3rd & 4th clutch pressure switches per other posts???

Anyone here replaced the 3rd & 4th clutch pressure switches only . then later have the same problem recurred or the entire transmission broke???

Any advise and help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks a lot for looking
