4th gen Automatic Problem....

Im posting this for the guy that bought my girlfriends (aka Ludechik), prelude and is havin some trouble.

Its a 93 Si auto prelude and he says that the D4 blinks when he tries to see what code is being thrown... according to him it blinks 2 -7- 8 times when he does the (paper clip trick )... what does this mean.. also it seems that his alternator is bad cuz it wont recharge the battery when he turns on his lights but he got it tested and autozone said it was good. WTF???

Re: 4th gen Automatic Problem....

Sounds like he took it to the Dur dur durrrr.... People at Autozone don't know S**T half the time. I work at Advance Auto and we are taught to watch the out-put readings. Yea sure the diode pattern can be good on the voltage regulator, but that doesn't mean it's a good alternator. He should take it to Advance and have them hook it up to SAM II and watch his Voltage and Amps being put out. Then on the final reading he needs to have ~13.4-14.4 Volts and ~55-70 Amps and a good diode reading.

My guess with the electrical system is that the Alternator isn't putting out enough to run the accessories. Which means the brushes are worn down.

As far as the AT, I have no clue..... wait for someone to comment on that one that has sufficient knowledge on that subject.

Edit: and a battery with a dead cell won't hold a charge for the record. (^_^)

Re: 4th gen Automatic Problem....

Hmmm when the automatic's D1-D4 dash lights flash is usually a transmission thing, but who knows it might be something else

Does this happen when it's raining or on warm humid mornings?

Re: 4th gen Automatic Problem....

Its a transmission problem... Whenever that thing flashes... He should of gotten a 5spd... lol... Change the alternator that one is too simple.. As for the D4.. Could be..
2 - Symptom is probably lockup clutch does not engage.
~ Disconnect lockup control solenoid valve B connector
~ Short open in lockup control solenoid valve B wire
~ Faulty lockup control solenoid valve B.

7 - Fails to shift between 1st <--> 4th, 2nd <-->4th or 2nd<--> 3rd only, Fails to shift stuck in 4th.
~ Disconnect lockup control solenoid valve A connector
~ Short open in lockup control solenoid valve A wire
~ Faulty lockup control solenoid valve A.

8 - Fails to shift stuck in 1st or 4th gears.
~ Disconnect lockup control solenoid valve B connector
~ Short open in lockup control solenoid valve B wire
~ Faulty lockup control solenoid valve B.

He can go thru the proceedures to fix this in the manual. I say replace both solenoids..
