Transmission 3rd gear pressure switch,refill transmission fluid,no codes in diagnostic transmission test with my mechanic..and it runs great no slipping of gears..it's blinking D after the car been driven once it gets to the warmest temperature which is midrange between the C & H

Borrowed an ex-mechanic pro level scan tool last year and got PO700 for the flashing “D”. The code is a generic transmission code. Took it in for a trans fluid drain&fill and Honda tech was able to determine which pressure switch was the issue.

Did you use Honda brand pressure switch? These cars seem to be very picky about that kind of stuff.

Also I would recommend disconnecting the battery and then seeing if it comes back on after driving it. As long as it’s shifting we’ll I don’t see a huge deal in it blinking.

When the flashing "D" occurred last year in my Pilot, the one time shudder between gears was the signal for me to get that fixed ASAP. First gen Pilots have a rep for "weak" trans and subsequent years had their own issues.

Right...I would agree with you if that was the case, however this is a 2012-2015 Pilot and the transmission doesn't appear to be shuddering or slipping. That is why I am wondering if it just a "computer glitch" causing the D to blink.

Yup there is that chance it could be a lucky hiccup ;)
