Thank you for taking time to ask your question on JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** online handle is Honda-Man I will be assisting you.

If the light is flashing there will be a diagnostic trouble code(DTC). Knowing what the code is will help find the cause of your problem. I have included the instructions on how to pull the code with a jumper wire at the 2 wire diagnostic connector. The instructions show a special jumper tool bur a paper clip or piece of wire will work just fine. I have also included the diagnostic code chart for the transmission codes. If you can get me the code?
