    Thinking of going back to GM, this is my 2nd Ford f-150 with the same message, I had a 2005 and now I drive a 2007. I like the trucks driving and overall but I just can't afford to fix this transmission once the warranty expires. I think I should not even be getting into this problem with such a new Truck.

SOURCE: od/off trans temp light comes on. had fluid and

your trans cooler is restricted. most likely it is part of your radiator and if it is restricted you will either need to replace the radiator or install an aftermarket cooler. have your trans cooler flow checked and go from there

SOURCE: 1994 f-350 7.3 turbo diesel.tach reading 0 rpm's at idle speed.

yea the 93 to 95 trucks never had a tach that works very long
and first the Tach does not make the od light blink or ck engine lgt
the crank trigger does this little thing is located right in middle front of engine between the vac pump and pwr steering pmp looks like a brass bolt with wires comming out of the back of it costs about 30 bucks (don't forget the locktite blue)
now that should fix the od lights and the ck engine but it may not fix the tach thats done in the tach driver module on back of tach in dash
you can replace this but my vote it's too expensive I did mine just fine with a after market one(50 bucks), bolted it right in front of old one, it hooks up super easy gets it's signal off the alternator stator

im sort of suprized it starts ok with a bad crank trig (eec needs to see +50 rpm to start fuel flow to injectors )

any good shop with a eec scanner can see this in just seconds

SOURCE: my od light is blinking

The light means there are codes stored, you must retrieve these codes with a good scan tol then base your repair on the code information. There are about 60 different trans codes which can store and all will cause harsh shifts.

If your wife is driving, it could actually be bumps in the road. Never heard of a converter lockup problem described like that. Is the OD light flashing?
A diagnostic scan that can detect pressure readings and solenoid voltage will be the best way to determine the health of your transmission.

Why would od light start blinking ?


This is the same as the check engine light, but specifically for the transmission. So it indicates there is a fault code stored for the trans, and you can have it read out to see what is the problem.

Will make dodge trans temp light o d off


Run fault codes and look for a servo/sensor fault in the od section of the box. If the od band/clutch is slipping it will cause the oil to over heat. Have a pressure test done on the box to ensure proper operating pressure. Check for correct oil level in the gear box.

Od light flashing 2003 ford explorer


You need to have the transmission scanned for fault codes, the light blblinks only when the transmission control module detects a fault, in this model it is usually the result of the computer seeing excessive slippage, you may not fell it but sooner or later it may fail completely. Before deciding whether the ****** is defective have the system scanned by a ****** repair shop for the blinking light.

My 2001 ford overdrive light is blinking and the first gear slips when in drive what can in be do i need to repair the trans?


The overdrive light flashe becuase it indicates an electrical fault within the system........have the checked the fluid level and conditoin.....it should be checked in park, after going thorugh all the gears allowing the oil to circulate the transmission (at idle)....and it should be a cherry red color...if it is a brown color and smells like it is burnt, you may have further damage within the transmission itself

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.

Od light blinking


A blinking OD light on a Ford Explorer means that there has been a fault detected in the transmission operation, a common one is excessive slippage detected between input and output turbine shaft speed sensors, this can be a slipping trans, you may not even fell it, but it is indeed slipping, but lets not get ahead here, go to the Ford dealer and have a system trouble code scan run of the on board, this will reveal the trouble code that the blinking light has set in the computer control for the transmission and give direction to what the cause is.

TRANS START SLIPPING AFTER O/D LIGHT STOP BLINKING. 99 FORD EXPLORER


U will have a fault code stored in the computer from the OD light blinking, find out what it is and you will know where to look for the trouble with the trans, but if it is slipping it will at the very least need a fluid change and inspection for clutch debris in trans pan, then u can decide what will need to be done.
