From my experience, faulty sensor or it's about to die, happened to me back over the summer. Any knocking when shifting into D4, or R?

WOAH. Do not drive the car until you do this... check your tranny fluid level... IF you have the 4-speed, there are two tranny fluid lines from the transmission that run along the bottom of the radiator... check to see if there are any leaks. If it's something just as simple as a leak, don't drive the car and risk killing your tranny.

Do you have an Owner's Manual? The tranny has it's own dip stick.

I see the problem right now; it's an overheating condition. You don't have a radiator!

As far as resetting the ECU - you've already done that by disconnecting the battery.

Seriously - my builder just came in and looked at your pictures. He thinks you may have broken shift solenoids A & B in the accident. The are located on the outside of the transmission towards the radiator. The D4 light (I assume it's really D5 that's blinking because it's a 5 speed) is blinking because the PCM sees a fault.

In any event, get it scanned and let us know the code.

My guess would be yes. Dont drive it. Get it scanned and find out what code its throwing causing it to blink.

Flashing D4

Mine was blinking on D4 when starting and it was a bad trans temp sensor. No problems with tranny and sensor was replaced under warranty.
