SOURCE: my overdrive

the OD light flashing indicates that the transmission control module has observed a fault. Take the car to a local aftermarket parts place and get the codes pulled (typically free) this will send you in the right direction regarding a repair.

SOURCE: overdrive light started flashing

the OD light is flashing to let u know a fault has occurred in the transmission electronic controls or that it is slipping plus other issues, go to Kragen or Autozone and ask them to run a trouble code test, it is free, post the code back here for me to look at.

SOURCE: Why does my overdrive light flash while i drive. I have a 1999 Ford Explorer.

It means the transmission has seen a fault and there will be a code set for the fault. Get the trouble codes read at an auto parts store such as AutoZone where they usually do it free and post the code if you can. It can reset its self every time you turn the vehicle off but it will not fix the problem. Could be a minor or a major problem so you don't know till the codes are read.

SOURCE: 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.

My overdrive light is flashing on and off on my 2000 ford Windstar van could a blown fuse be causing it


First of all have an auto parts store check for trouble codes...The flashing overdrive light is a warning that the overdrive unit is overheating and/or low on fluid...#1 choice is overheating and you will be looking at a costly rebuild if this is not attended too soon...Have your radiator, which also has a transmission cooler flushed, cleaned and refilled immediately...Have someone check if fluid is leaking then cleaned and filled with fresh fluid...saailer

Overdrive light is flashing


The flashing light means the overdrive will not work.

The engine light is the "check engine light" and is telling you there is a diagnostic trouble code stored n the computer.The overdrive light is flashing because the code(s) is related to the transmission.This could mean something as simple as a bad sensor or a major failure.If you could go to a parts store and have codes pulled then i can give you some kind of ideal what direction you will need to go.

Overdrive light on shifter is flashing and


There is another recall on the cruise control. The first added a fuse. This new recall is about wiring and lighting problems caused by the cruise. Everything from not shifting out of Park to no brake lights to false dash indicators. Best to contact the dealer, if it is a recall its free.

98 windstar overdrive flashing


i recommend using a DTC reader to check the codes 1st but i suspect the transmission range sensor. it gives out due to a poorly placed master brake cylinder. the switch leaks and causes electrical problems with the TRS and other units connected in the wireing harness directly below the brake pressure switch.
