Default Drive indicator light blinking

Hello All,

I have a strange condition on my drive light and don't know how to
interpret it. Yesterday evening on the way home from a trip, the letter
D on my transmission indicator panel (P,R,N,D,D2,D1) started blinking.

The condition continues to persist.

No other symptoms of problems.

Does anyone know what this means?

Thanks in advance for your advice / comments.

Dave

Hello again,

I forgot to add that I have a 2002 Odyssey with ~50K miles.

Not to be uppity or anything, but did you check your owner's
manual? (Lots of folks aren't aware that the manual often
covers stuff like this.)

Sounds like it's signaling something is not quite right.

Updates are welcome. :-)

On my '01 Accord it indicates a fault in the transmission. No other lights
to go with it?

It means there is a problem in the transmission. Lots of failures in Odyssey
transmissions. Check out www.odyclub.com for lots of information on failures
and getting Honda to pay for replacement.....

Thanks,

That's not good news. I will checkout the link and get it to a Honda
dealer.
