O/D light blinking

Upon most startups, the 4 wheel auto and 4 wheel low lights begin blinking a few times, but the 4 wheel drive works fine. Now my O/D on/off light is blinking continuosly. It has been doing this for two days. Any ideas or suggestions?

Have your trans oil checked it is telling you that something is not right
most cars dont have a trans oil check light so they use the OD OFF light as a warning
check the oil in it i bet you it is low

2008 Dodge Ram 4WD LOW light blinks while running in 2WD. When applied the 4WD High works fine as well as the 4WD LOW but the light keeps blinking and you can hear the system trying to apply 4WD LOW


Replace the motor/module on the transfercase. It has an internal short. Don't replace it. Soon you will have to replace or rebuild the transfer case and the motor.

My 04 Tahoe will engage in 4-high or 4-low, you can hear the clunk and in 4-low it is in low gear but it will not engage the front axial, but in 4-auto it will work fine. All lights indicate everything is...


I had a 4 wheel drive suburban..it had issues with the high-lock and low-lock..I just used the auto setting because all four wheels were getting power anyway..only time you need lock is when you plan to go bogging in really deep mud..on snow/ice all you need is all wheel drive..you actually have better control..as long as it works in all wheel you should be fine..also be checking the front hubs.. are yours full time or do you have lock outs..on the axle hubs..thats my question

After pressing the 4 wheel drive button it just blinks a few times and stops then 2wheel drive lights comes on. 4wheel drive worked fine the day b 4


these damn things do this all the time, my 03 ? you cant count on it to work any day of the week ! you just get lucky and it works. I get all lights flashing, i get the nuetral light on yet it is in 2 hi. I'm tired of all the codes and replacing parts, 700.00 dollars later and still the same. I just drive it and it fixes itself in a day, maybe next time i start truck. It worked the best when i sealed all the electrical plugs in moisture proof wrapping,but a few months later and its a guess game again so i just drive it !

Will not go in 4 low 4x4 lights start blinking after trying . reset light by unhooking battery . then goes in 4 high normelly but not 4 low. i thlnk auto 4 is working 4 liter SOHC 1998


Normally 4 wheel drive HIGH is engaged on the fly or as you are moving more than 10 km per hour or 10 miles per hour but 4 wheel drive LOW is engaged at around 3 to 5 mph. no more or you could ruin the transfer case. Try going from 2 high to 4 high by switching back and forth and then try 2 high to 4 low when idling along. What usually happens is the mechanics under the car freeze up or rust up and you have to switch back and forth to free it up.

4 wheel drive will not engage (1995 S10 Blazer)


I had this same problem a few years ago. In my case I didn't use the 4 Wheel Drive very often and the tranfer would hang in 2 Wheel. I fixed mine by tapping on the transfer case with a hammer while my wife switched back and forth from 2 Wheel to 4 Wheel.

2001 gmc jimmy keeps kicking into 4 wheel drive


the 4 wheel low light will usually only blink because the low gear is meant for a very slow speed and usually wont activate with the vehicle in motion i would have to say the sudden switch to 4x4 though would probably be a short in the wiring some place
