2014 Mitsubishi Mirage - Flashing D

Flashing D on dashboard that makes the car stutter . Both headlights being 4 or 5 times a year.

The flashing D indicates transmission trouble. Mitsubishis have a very long, transferrable power train warranty (10 yr./100k) so you should be able to take it to a dealer. Failing that, a good independent transmission shop. Sorry but I don’t understand the part about headlights.

You can plug in a code reader and get the code for the transmission that is causing the flashing D. The flashing D is the check engine light for the transmission.

What does this mean? :confused:
