1997 Mercury Mountaineer Overdrive flashing


When the OD light flashes it means the transmission has developed a fault. As to what the fault may be is yet to be seen without the system being scanned. In many cases the light indicates the transmission is slipping, you may not feel it slipping, but the computer (called the PCM) senses it through the internal speed sensors that measure main shaft input speed and shaft output speed in RPM. Other problems like shift solenoids can cause this as well. Another factor can be the transmission fluid is worn out, it should be replaced along with a new filter every 60,000 miles minimum.

Slip light came on and flashed for a minute or so


This may have been caused by low battery voltage, have the battery load tested by a local parts store like Autozone, it is free.

What does it mean when your O/D off light is flashing and the transmissionis slipping


The flashing OD light indicates there is a problem in the transmission control system. When the Transmission Control Unit detects a malfunction it will flash the OD light and store a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) in the computer. You will need to have a Ford Dealer pull the codes and determine exactly what is wrong.
I wish I could be more specific, but there are about 120 different reasons for the flashing OD light.

Air Conditioner won't work


Your alternator/AC belt is slipping, or was slipping and has since fallen off.

The AC light flashing indicates a speed control issue on the compressor, due to the belt slipping on it when it got wet.

The battery and brake lights illuminating is indicative of no charging voltage from your alternator, due to it not spinning when the belt slipped and/or came off.

Check the belt to see if it is present, and if it is, check to make sure it is tight.

Traction control


Traction Control system adjusts your throttle and braking automatically to help keep your car from slipping on wet/snowy roads. If the light flashes momentarily then that means it is doing the job properly. If the light flashes constantly or stays on then it indicates a problem with the traction control or ABS system and could pose a safety concern.

Actually,when the O/D light is flashing,the vehicle is indicating a problem within that specific system.When this happens with any system on the vehicle,a diagnostic trouble code is set in the vehicle computer's memory.What you did by disconnecting the battery was simply to erase the trouble code from the computer's memory.If the transmission feels like it is slipping,it probably is,and that's where the problem will be.You can drive the vehicle,and the code will reset again sooner or later,as will the O/D light flashing.Have the vehicle scanned when the code resets,try not to drive it very hard,because if the trans is slipping,driving it will worsen the damage/cost to repair.

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.
