2000 ford explorer the overdrive light came on, what does that mean?

Is this the light on the dash notifing you that you hit the button to turn the O.D. off that you're talking about? I have a 98 and my button is located in the end of the shift lever. I have hit it several times accidently and noticed the light in the dash coming on. All you have to do is push the button back in and your vehicle will once again be in O.D. which is where you want to be except when you are off roading it. Overdrive cuts your engine revolutions by 1/3 thus giving you better gas milage on the highway.
I hope this helps you and please don't forget to rate my advice.

OD off Light Flashing on my 1998 Ford Explorer XLT 4.0 V

The OD light is flashing to alert u to the fact that some kind of fault has occured in the transmission, the problem is in many cases a slipping condition, you need to have the trans control system tested for the trouble codes that are stored when this light flashes, this will let u know what the problem is and a direction to follow to repair it.
