Customer Question
Hello, I have a...

Hello, I have a 2009 Civic and last night the check engine light went on with the blinking green dot next the "D". This morning only the check engine was on... Also, this same thing occurred once about a year or so ago, but went away on its own.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

The green "D" light was blinking; The check engine light is not blinking

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Civic yourself? What have you tried so far?

Haven't tried anything; And would be open to attempting to repair it myself

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thank you

Looks like you specialize in german cars? Mine is a honda
Mechanic for Honda: tech0405, Technician replied 8 months ago

I specialize in german cars but recently ran into this exact same issue in our shop because we work on all make and models , you have a transmission code thats why the D is flashing you have trouble codes stored in the transmission control module you will need to use a capable scan tool to see which trouble codes you have stored in the trans . The most common issue and fault is #p0843 which is usually a fluid transmission sensor causing the issue but i recommend you have that checked out with a capable scan tool that will read trouble codes in the trans not just ecm . I hope this helps please dont forget to provide feedback for the help provided thank you

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
