The OD light is flashing to indicate a fault is set in the Transmission control module. Have the system scanned to see what that code is. Based on my experience with this model the transmission will need to be rebuilt ior replaced with a factory rebuilt unit.

I had a similar problem which turned out to be caused by a leaking vacuum line.

SOURCE: transmission problems

This is what my 04 Kia Rio is doing exactly. I was told that the TCM and Shift Solenoid "C" is faulty. Am trying to figure out how to go about fixing that without paying more than the car is worth. My tech checked with the local Kia dealership and the TCM new is I think around $700. You also have to buy the program to tell this high dollar part what to do and that is right at $100. I have found that sometimes if I let the car warm up and then keep hitting the overdrive button, eventually it starts shifting correctly.

The Transmission shifts very hard after the first shift. Check engine light is on as well as the Green overdrive light blinks off and on. Speed sensor was cleaned and even replaced.


Your on the right track. Have you scanned the PCM, what codes did you get? If not and you changed the vehicle speed sensor,(VSS) did you check the (OSS) output shaft speed sensor, it will cause torque converter lock up and hard shifting and that pesky OD light flashing. I have also found that clutch packs inside auto tranny's dry out. Ford and some aftermarket companies sell a fluid that will recondition the clutch packs.

Overdrive flashing probably means that overdrive has been disabled due to a detected problem such as overheating. i would get it checked out.

Ford Ranger 98'Splash don't shift 3rd and


you will need to connect it ti a scanner to confirm but it sounds like your solenoid (there is a solenoid that controls those gears inside your tranny) the part is actually cheap and should take no time to replace. the cost comes in a way of replacing the tranny fluid that will be lost.

Overdrive light flashes on and off


This will occur if the control solenoids that are located inside the pan on the valve body, are malfunctioning. First, i would check the fluid level. if the fluid level is proper, have the tranny flushed and change the filter as well. If this doesn't fix the issue, go ahead and replace the control solenoids.
