That happened to my old truck, an 04 dodge, and I said to myself " chancery, old chap, this must mean a new transmission" , I was mistaken. The solenoid pack in the tranny was bad. I had that replaced for a fraction of the cost of a new tranny and never once had another transmission problem.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 1999 Windstar ABS/Traction/OD off light and speedometer

Its a faulty sensor switch on your brakes master cylinder. It leaks brake fluid into the wires that are plugged into it and causes a short in the circuit, resulting in a blown fuse that controls the AC, odometer, speedometer, cruise control, and ABS light to come on. This problem can also cause a fire. The fire can occur even when the vehicle is off. To fix this problem go to this URL - http://www.fordwindstarrecall.info/

If you are reseting a factory alarm...lock and unlock the drivers door with the key. If you don't know the code look under the dash driver side in left corner there should be a black cover with a sticker with a code on it 6 numbers that is the factory code.

1997 ford expedition 5.4 when you turn the 4x4 switch sometimes the light comes on and works and sometimes it doesnt any ideas


The light is to come on when the solenoid has engaged the transfer case to the front drive axle. You could have old oil built up in the switch itself down below beside the transfer case and cause the switch to be unable to make the connection as well. I'll catch it for this but some spray carb cleaner and a rag helps in that case. A 'sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't' could also be a sticky solenoid that pushed the engagement pin into the gear to connect the transfer case to the drive-line. Again, carb cleaner can help once you pull the solenoid.

Vehicle wont engage in drive but can shift from 1st to second to drive and od off light is flashing on my 2002 ford escape 3.0 4wd


The only reason the lower gears are working is because they engage a separate clutch to assist in engine breaking on downhill grades. You have most likely cracked a forward piston in the transmission, and the transmission may need to be overhauled or replaced.

My theft light is flashing but my 1997 expedition wont start.The vehicle turns over but just don't start.


ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM Passive anti-theft system
Your ignition key has a unique imbedded transponder which engages engine electronics and allows the vehicle to be started. Without the use of your special ignition key, the vehicle will not start.

During each vehicle start, the coded key is read by the anti-theft system. If the key’s ID code matches the code in the anti-theft system, the vehicle is enabled to start.

Anti-theft system
Briefly illuminates when the ignition is turned to the ON position to verify that the passive anti-theft system is operating properly.

Also, its possisble that tou have actovated the fuel pump switch.

CHeck it.

I HAVE A 97 FORD EXPEDITION THAT STUCK IN 4 WHEEL DRIVE


Possible solution..Expedition uses a vacuum solenoid on the firewall that controls vacuum to the 4-wheel drive actuator. Vacuum "unlocks" the 4-wheel drive, so you may have a leak in the line to the actuator so the 4-wheel drive is always on. Seems backwards, I know.

I have a 1997 ford expedition and the overdrive light stays on when its actually off is this normal and is it good for the overdrive to be on what should i do


Hi, this light is signaling a malfunction within the OD shift solenoid that is located within the transmission. the best action here is to take it to the local ford dealer for a PCM scan. you should receive a code that will point to a transmission OD shift solenoid issue.

Please rate and god bless:)
