Usually it means there is a component of the system that is not working. It could be a sensor or mechanical problem.
You'll probably need to take it to a dealer or major shop to get it tested.

You need to remove your tyres and clean the abs sensors well enough.

You might also change your brrake pads if they have gone bad.

SOURCE: 2005 Ford Escape XLT 4WD - Overdrive light blinking...

The overdrive light blinking means that a fault code has been stored in the computer, this can be for many different reasons. The car isn't actually turning overdrive on and off, it is just a way to alert you of a problem. Getting the computer scanned will provide a fault code eg. P(XXXX) if you can get this code I can help you further. -Jared

The 4wd light in my 2005 escape is bllinking


Hi there:
The 4WD module gets info from the ABS module, so when one has a fault, it affects the other. First I suggest inspect the front ABS sensor indicator rings an the axles and scanned the ABS module to know if some fault code is there. They are known for breaking, and possible damage could occur to front abs sensor. Repair the sensor issue and both lamps should go out.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Hi, have you used your vehicle off road, the ABS sensors behind each wheel do not function correctly if covered in mud etc - power wash behind each wheel to get rid of dirt etc, good luck.
