    If any fault codes are stored the o/d light starts flashing. Most Hydraulic problems will not set any codes. But a line pressure test will show what is going on. I know that the RWD transmission designated AOD FIOD AODE A70W had problems with a sun gear shell weld that would cause no 4th gear (mechanical ) failure this could be possible in your axod,axode transmission. as well.

follow speedo cable to the transmission ,it should screw on at that point. next take out 1 bolt for y shaped hold down fork and check for a stripped speedometer gear , its plastic pull it straight up and out if teeth are missing check the gear in transmission connected to that one. also since its apart try turning the cable while someone watches it, if it turns smoothly then its ok just replace transmission gear.and reinstall cable. if it makes the speedo jump or turns roughly replace cable as well.your local auto parts stores should have these, if not I know the dealers will.

It could be the vacuum modulator on your auto transmission, sometimes when vacuum hoses fail,split or whatever, they can suck up impurities causing other downstream items to fail. Also check mechanical linkage form shifter in cabin to transmission gear selector arm. If jumps were happening these might have worked loose. Best of luck!
