Flashing D transmission light on 08 Honda Odyssy

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the transmission fluid?

A couple weeks ago and was fine. Will check again. Noticed it takes a second or two when put into gear for transmission to engage

Ask Your Own Transmissions Question

All the flashing D light is really telling you is that there is a problem with the transmission and there is a code stored in the transmission control module. With a slight burning smell, the first thing you would want to do is check the transmission fluid. If you've sprung a leak, then it might be causing the smell, and the light will come on. Otherwise to know the issue you will have to have it scanned. There are a couple of switches on the outside of the transmission that might be leaking and causing both issues as well.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

Took van to Honda dealer and transmission pipe to heat exchanger corroded and drained fluid while my daughter was driving 100 miles. Tranny is toast and more to fix than van is worth. Bought a new Civic now for her at school.

Thanks for the follow up, and I have to say sorry to hear all this happened, but truly glad it's resolved.

Thank you for the rating!
