OD light flashes

The flashing OD light indicates there is a problem in the transmission control system. When the Transmission Control Unit detects a malfunction it will flash the OD light and store a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) in the computer. You will need to have a Ford Dealer pull the codes and determine exactly what is wrong.I wish I could be more specific, but there are about 120 different reasons for the flashing OD light.

2006 wrench light is on


Powertrain Malfunction (Wrench) Warning Indicator (base instrument cluster)
The instrument cluster receives the powertrain status from the PCM over the high speed CAN. When a powertrain system concern is detected, the PCM sends the instrument cluster a command signal to illuminate the powertrain malfunction (wrench) warning indicator. If the 4WD control module detects a failure with the 4WD drive system, the 4WD control module sends a message to the instrument cluster over the CAN to illuminate the powertrain malfunction (wrench) warning indicator. On 4.6L engines, if the transmission control module (TCM) detects a failure with the transmission, the TCM sends a message to the instrument cluster over the CAN to illuminate the powertrain malfunction (wrench) warning indicator.

overdrive light flashing


Overdrive (O/D) Off
The O/D OFF indicator illuminates when the transmission is locked out of O/D. This dual function indicator will also flash off and on if a transmission malfunction is detected.
This means there is probably a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored in the transmission control module ! You'll need to take it to a repair shop !

ford ranger transmission wont shift on its own and overdrive light is flashing


The OD light is flashing to indicate a fault is set in the Transmission control module. Have the system scanned to see what that code is. Based on my experience with this model the transmission will need to be rebuilt ior replaced with a factory rebuilt unit.

O/D light flashes


when the OD light flashes it is to alert you to the fact a fault has been detected by the TCM (transmission control module), u now need a dealer to test the system for the fault code that is stored in the TCM memory whenever the OD light is flashing.
