The dealership replaced the 3rd & 4th pressure switches. No more D5 flashing.

Makes sense. Also get into the habit of 15k ATF fluid changes

What was the cost of having the 3rd and 4th pressure switches replaced? Did they have to pull the transmission?

Thanks.

No codes showed up

My 2003 MDX starting doing the same thing this week. After reading the forum, i took it to the local Autozone to have the codes pulled. No codes popped up. Will a code always pop up with this issue, or should i have the codes checked again?

It happened To me a frs weeks ago. Three torque converter shift valve A solenoid code P1738 if Inremember correctly the number...I'm sure it was valve A code. After checking thoroughly I saw the tranny plug under the water housing was loose...plastic was toasted and clip broke...replaced plug and connected it. No more D5 flashing and
Normal shifting again. BTW I knew it wasn't damaged tranny because in D5 she didn't change gears but she did changed gears manually by moving the gears stick.

Update

Fyi, Turned out that it was a bad 4th gear pressure switch.
Part from Acura was $55
22 minute job, start to finish.

Done.

Heres a good one guys - I have 04 MDX, 90,000 Mile, still under extended warranty. About a month back, CEL came on - took to dealer - pulled code P1078 (IMRC Valve), replaced it. I took the car back, drove fine fo another week or so, CEL is back again - same code, but its intermittent this time, again took back to the dealer - this time he cant pull code. Took back again next week, they caught the code, took the car in and called me that they went through with the Acura protocol and have found out that the Wire Harness under engine needs to be replaced. Gave the car back - now the D5 is blinking and CEL is also on. I dont suspect the tranny as the car runs fine and there is no noise - but then who know. Any ideas if the new Wire Harness is throwing tantrums?

I'm experiencing the flashing D5 light, with no other noticeable tranny issues. Initially happened about a year ago. My independent mechanic replaced 3rd and 4th pressure switches and it went away. Now occurred again. Code stated something like "High Input". Replaced the tranny Temp Sensor based on some leads on the interweb, but no luck.

Anything else to check?

I see tranny plug, fuses, clean and lube a gauge as some solutions other folks have posted.

Are there other pressure switches, 1st, 2nd & 5th, that could also go bad?

Thanks!

Hard to help without knowing the exact code. But just because the 3rd and 4th pressure switches were replaced a year ago I wouldn't rule them out.

I had a flashing D5 light a little over a year ago. The Honda/Acura specialist replaced the transmission temperature sensor and it hasn't come back on since.

If you want to narrow it down for certain, I'm sure a tech who knows these cars would be able to deduce the issue right away.

A tech would only be able to give you a few suggestions on what it may be. They'll still need to pull codes to know for sure. Any trans code will cause the d5 to flash. Most common however seems to be pressure switches and thats for honda/acura in general. Get the codes pulled and you'll know for sure where to go from there.

+1 Unless you pull the actual code, you are just throwing parts at it. Not all blinking D5 are caused by the same thing.

^ Yes absolutely. I did mean to suggest bringing the vehicle to a Honda/Acura tech who's familiar with these engines & transmissions and let them run their diagnostics on it. They'll be able to pin down the issue.
