Question about 1998 Mazda MPV
I have a 1998 Mazda MPV AWD. This morning the "O/D OFF" light started flashing after I had the overdrive on for a short time. The revs stayed normal and the van seemed fine. What does the flashing O/D light mean?
You lost overdrive. Could be the TCC solenoid stuck or open short. Wiring. Or the EPC solenoid is clogged.

Check the E-Brake, make sure that the ebrake is not engaged and that it is fully disengaging. If that is not the problem, then there is something with the brake calipers or rotors that are not allowing your brakes to fully disengage

If your system is like my old 91 there was a relay and vacuum actuated switches. My problem ended up being one of those relays being bad. There were 2 relays and they had the identical part numbers so to test it I switched the wires from one relay to the other and it went into 4wd. Might be an easy fix. Check your manual and see what makes it go into 4X4. If you dont have a manual see if you can download your models manual at www.pdftown.com I think that my series was similar to yours so look on the firewall on the left side by the strut tower. You will see 2 sets of wires going up into rubber boots. The relays are in the boots. It took me quite a wile to figure it all out but the transfer case has a little motor and some contacts inside the end of the transfer case housing. Thats is where the magic happens but the relays are what make the magic happen. There are also vacuum switches on the drivers side strut tower. One engages the front end and one disengages the front end. There is a vacuum actuated system that works the front end and if the rod or vacuum goes bad and the system sees that the front end didnt engage this will also give an error. I would start at the transfer case relays first. Like I said, it is what gave me your exact described problem. Hope this helps... and dont forget to rate the fix. Thanks... Dale

the problem is doing damage to the catalytic converter...The only time the engine light will flash is when you are doing damage to the cat... dont drive it cats are extremely expensive to fix. I am assuming misfire.. replace spark plugs, wires and coil pack.. i would start off wit hthe wires and plugs first as they are least expensive
