Hi dfuller227,

Seems the Transmission control Module is failing and causing the problem.

Does the D4 or S indicator light blinks while driving?

Let us start by retrieving the trouble code for the D4 blinking and see if it is just sensors or a fault with the TCM.

Bridge the SCS connector and turn ignition switch ON and count the blinking of the D4 light. Note them down and let me know what you have.

Do this after the D4 blinks and do not disconnect the battery, it would clear the codes.

Try bridging and see if you have any codes. If none then you would have to wait till the lights starts blinking.

You should check if the area around the TCM is damp or wet, which could cause problems if moisture is getting to the TCM or its harness.

SRS means Supplemental Restraint System, meaning the Air Bags.

For SRS the connector for diagnostic is different, should be a yellow connector on diver side.
