2004 Honda Accord ProblemsCheck Engine and D4 Lights Flashing
The 1998-2016 Honda Accord may develop issues with the automatic transmission.
Rough shifting may occur, and the “D4” light and check engine may begin to blink. The check engine light will also illuminate, and OBD trouble codes P0700, P0730, P0740, P0780, P1768 and/or P1768 will be stored in the computer.
If the transmission shifts roughly, the failure is very likely mechanical failure of the transmission. If the transmission performs normally, a faulty sensor, or dirty transmission fluid may be the case.
In most cases, it is necessary to use professional diagnostic equipment to provide a diagnosis, and complete the repair.
The longevity of the transmission is dependent on strict adherence to the manufacturer's recommendation for ATF replacement intervals and procedure.
The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn too thin, replaced to correct this issue.
2004 Honda Accord Questionsdoes this car have a timing belt or timing chain? It is a 6 cylinder. (1 answer)
I am thinking about buying a used car and would like to know if I would have to replace the belt if it does have one.
Sometimes my car will start and other times I have to jiggle the key in the ignition a few times for it to start. All the lights come on. Sometimes I will hear the clicking noise. I was told I needed a starter I changed it and it is still doing the same thing. Help!
My car will run fine and then it will all of sudden cut off without warning and after I let it sit for a little while it will start back up. Also the factory alarm will alarm spontaneously.
