This is an indication that a fault exists in the transmission, u will need to have Mazda test the computer for the trouble code that is set with this light flashing.

My 99 denali quit shifting into overdrive. Everything still seems pluged in. Any suggestions?

For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

Od ligth start flashing truck run good

If your "OD" light is flashing then the computer has detected a fault that can only be accessed with a "scan" tool. Do not ignore this warning light! You may spend a few bucks fixing it now, but if you ignore it, it could cost you a lot more.

I've got a 95 Mazda Millenia that is flashing 7 codes, and will not shift into the highest gear.. could it be electrical.. A sensor codes are Po400 p1521 p1522 po740 po730 p1173 p1170. several days ago, I...

0400 is an EGR issue.
1521 is VRIS Solenoid '1' Circuit
1522 is VRIS Solenoid '2 Circuit
0740 is Torque Converter Clutch Circuit/Open
1173 is HO2S Bank 2 Sensor 1 Circuit Fixed (Bank 2 Sensor 1)
1170 is HO2S Bank 1 Sensor 1 Circuit Fixed (Bank 1 Sensor 1)
You know straight away which codes to ignore and which one is causing the problem when you read them off. If in order, EGR we can ignore. The solenoids will not work with no Torque convertor pressure. Start there.
