Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have just replace the starter on 06 odyssey and when crank up, the engine light is on and "D" is flashing. Any one know what is going on. Also acceleration is slow going to to speed.

The check engine light is for an engine management problem and the flashing "D" is for a transmission problem. Recheck your work, make sure you didn't miss a wire connection or blow a fuse, if that checks good then you will need to have the codes pulled, most auto parts stores can do the engine codes but not the transmission unless they have a very good scanner. Your best bet might be a good independent shop. Do this very quickly as the vehicle may go into limp-in mode, and if that happens it will just limp along at very slow speed.
