Yes PCM (powertrain control module). is the standard name established by the EPA for all engine control computers, on Ford it also controls the trans shifting.

Transmission modulator 1996 4wd Ford explorer locstion


I think this is an electronic trans with no modulator. Overdrive is really not a gear but rather torque converter lockup. Torque converter may have completely failed.

Why does the overdrive light keep blinking in my 98 Ford Explorer?


When the overdrive lamp flashes it's a warning that the transmission has a concern that is either internal or external (wiring, computer). A scan will need to be performed to determine which part of the transmission is at fault. Many auto parts stores will perform a free scan however many cheaper testers will not pick up transmission codes. The overdrive servo in the Explorer trans has often caused problems with the return spring breaking. This is a repair that can be made without removing the trans. Another concern could be a shift solenoid not operating properly. The trans pan would have to be removed to address a solenoid issue. Internal gears/clutches are also a possibility. Repairs for this concern could run from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. Diagnosis would run from $0 - $150.00. Good luck.

Transmission-overdrive not working properly


check the transmission fluid first .
============
overdrive allows the engine to run at lower RPM's , which increases the fuel
economy and also the transmission runs cooler
