SOURCE: overdrive transmission

O/D light flashing is computer indicating an issue with the transmission -no surprise. Make sure the transmission fluid is still good (dosn't smell burnt, right level). Slipping could be the TCC (torque Converter clutch) - not a cheap part - but would only really slip in 4th gear (above 40 mph). Slipping before that could be numerous things in the trans (low fluid pressure, torque converter issues).
I would be tempted to replace the fluid anyhow, but there is a chance an expensive issue is starting to arise - and replacing the fluid on a failing transmission could cause it to fail 100% (or can fix it nearly 100%). These can be touchy transmissions, too much DIY without the right diagnostic tools can be bad. Not what you wanted to hear, and not an expert, but have had some expertise with these.hope that helps.

If your referring to the hold button then its a solenoid in the transmissions valve body that is going bad. The problem is going to be in the transmission.

How to switch on overdrive for mazda demio aletta


lots of mazda vehicles have a small button on the shifter, usually on the side or somewhere not very visible. Generally overdrive is actually ON and pressing the button will turn on a light that indicates Overdrive is OFF. since overdrive is kind of a passing gear - if you are going uphill or towing something and do not want the vehicle to shift to a higher, larger gear, you would turn overdrive OFF .

My overdrive light is flashing. Only flashes when I drive. When I start my car it does not flash then it flashes a few minutes after I start driving.


you will need to first have the trany computer scanned for codes these codes will point to problem area, this may be due to a bad switch or bad soleniod for the overdrive.
