It means you have a computerized system management problem. An electronic sensor component has either failed, or a condition has occurred that has put a sensor out of normal range and the onboard computer is letting you know of it. Any time that light comes on it sets a code that can be read with a special code reader.Most auto parts stores will retrieve the code/ codes for you at no cost. Be very cautious interpreting the codes meaning, because various engine conditions will set a code as well, because the condition will affect what the sensor measures. If you spend the money for the replacement sensor(never cheap) it won't shut the light off.Once installed auto parts stores will not take it back.Also 90 percent of the time it is defective wiring running to the sensor or bad grounding that causes the codes/codes.So unless you have a ton of high priced testing equipment and a lot of electronic engine control troubleshooting experience,you best take in in for service. One more thing. The most common reason the light comes on is a loose or defective gas cap.The computer monitors that too.

SOURCE: The O/D off light is
I have the same problem with my 95 Toyota T100. My O/D off light started flashing when my speedometer cable broke this week-end. I assume the electronic transmission is using the speed data to manage the overdrive.
Have your speedometer problem fixed and your flashing light will turn off.

Hello If it looks like a battery then most probably one of two things. 1- You have a bad battery. 2- You have a weak alternator that is not functioning properly and can not keep up with the car needs. You should check the alternator charging value and then check the battery. You could do that at any shop that has the Battery/Alternator testing tool. Hope that helps

It should be letting you know that you have a tire pressure problem. If you still have the owners manual read it. It will explain what to do, what to look for and how to reset the light if need be.
