When your transmission D4 light is blinking, this means your transmission has stored a code. The code would need to be retrieved and diagnosed to see what the problem is. These transmissions were pretty reliable, but had problems with the solenoids of the transmission. A test to see the code and a diagnosis is needed to isolate the failed one. Your shift indicator lights may also have stored a code. If you need help, a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, can come to your home or office to diagnose the light and determine what repair should be done.
