Sounds like you have a bad ignition switch (electrical part, not lock cylinder). It's the only thing that controls all the things you mentioned. Take a look at this link. It can give you more information, if you decide to test, and change the part yourself. Good luck

My older brother has 18" rims he wants to sell me but I want to make sure they'll fit my 93' Accord. Will 18" rims with 4 lugs fit my car?

I bought a used TCM box from EbayŽ and installed it in my 93 AccordEX.
It resolved the blinking D4 light for just a few weeks and the problem came back. Should I buy a new TCM box? I read that the blinking D4 can be related to a fuel issue like the Oxygen sensor. My car just wont get off 2nd gear drives like a snail. How can I get back my true horse power from my Honda?
Please help as I don't have much $$$ to put into my Accord.

I'd be afraid it'd screw up something in a front-wheel drive car. Someone else may know better though.

Please, get the D4 light problem fixed, before buying 18" wheels. Wheels that large are going to put extra strain on the engine, transmission, axles, etc.
I would try to get the code from the transmission, so it can at least point you in the right direction. If I had to guess, I'd say either your shift solenoids are malfunctioning, or you have another bad computer. Here's the link again, to help you diagnose it. Good luck

I read this from that TCM link:
However, some PGM-FI problem will also make the D4 light in the gauge assembly blink. If there is a problem with the emission fuel control system the code will be retrieved from the check engine light. Repairing the emission fuel control system is first priority. After repairing the PGM-FI system, reset the A/T unit memory.
I got code 43 (Check engine light) which points to fuel system supply issue. Will this be costly?

My mechanic gave me a price of $200 to replace my power window motor regulator with a new one. At the same time I was thinking of replacing my Oxygen Sensor, catalytic converter, muffler,etc.
Should I spend more $$$ even though my car is running ok
