Hi .
If the D is flashing then you will need to get hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and check for malfunction codes in the transmission system.
You most likely have a malfunction with the valve body solenoids , the scan for codes will confirm this for you.
But we find in most cases the reverse clutch most likely failed .
Need further assistance with this issue then please get back to.

It’s not R flashing it’s O flashing when you attempt to change into reverse.

UK Auto Mechanic: Greg, Shop Owner replied 7 months ago
Okay that’s the “D”
Just looks like a O
Do the diagnostic scan tool and check for codes .
