I got a check engine light and the flashing D5 and was stuck in limp mode on my ride home.
I checked the codes all that I am getting is P0970(pressure control solenoid C control circuit low).

I changed trans fluid to see if that would help and it was time anyway but it didnt seem to help the problem.
Any ideas of what I should check and look for before getting it towed to a shop.

P0970 generally (always?) indicates that the system has sensed an electrical problem, rather than the more typical tranny error codes which can indicate a mechanical problem - even if it's caused by an electrical problem, such as a shift solenoid with a bad coil).

Here is the troubleshooting procedure. As you'll notice, pretty much requires a laptop with the HDS (Honda Diagnostic System) running, along with the prerequisite cabling. But I suspect you can read between the lines and find the problem without the HDS.

And... because it's not at all clear, and because Honda uses a lot of different names for the same thing, the solenoid you are looking at is "D" in the diagram below...
