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.
