    It means you may want to stay away from the vehicle. It could be an easy fix - don't read that to mean cheap fix. You need to have someone you trust go over the vehicle and check it out.

It is probably the vehicle speed sensor. Tells computer how fast the car is going so it will shift at proper time. A tech with a scan tool can run the EEC test and read the codes and tell you if it's the speed sensor. easy repair. Buy speed sensor on Ebay

Why my 2002 ford explorer overdrive flashing


The overdrive light flashes when the transmission has a fault/ problem and stores a code in the computer. Unless you are a professional mechanic I would seek one to diagnose your concern.

2002 ford explorer od light gets flashing and i loss power


The flashing light means there is a system problem with the automatic transmission. You will probably notice a lack of power when starting from a stop with this lamp flashing. The dealer or local mechanic should be able to scan for a fault code.

Have a 2001 ford explorer and the overdrive light been flashing,and feel the tranny slip alittle when driving.. some people say its the valve body gasket .can you help?


When the OD light flashes in this truck it means a malfunction has occurred in the transmission, it usually will be due to excessive slippage of the transmission based on the signal of the input and output shaft speed sensors. Here is what you need to do is have the Transmission Control Module tested for the fault code or codes that was stored when the light starting flashing, it is doubtful the valve body is the problem based on my 30 years as a Ford dealer technician.

My overdrive light is flashing indicating the overdrive is off


this could mean there is a problem with the transmission,but most times when OD light is flashing it is because the wiring to the OD switch is broken.
is the OD switch on the end of the gear shift lever ?
or does your vehicle have the shifter on console between seats ?
