Usually a flashing O/D light means the vehicle speed sensor is not working (VSS).
Go to Auotzone and ask for a free computer scan to see if there is a defect fault code stored in the engine computer for the VSS.

That light is to let you know the overdrive cancel button is on. Does the dransmission downshift out of overdrive when you push the button? If so i would suspect a bad buld or a broken wire in the shifter assembly. If it does not downshift then good chance the button is bad, dont know if you can still buy this new.

2001 chysler T&C downshifting

It must be seeing a fault coming out of 4th gear. The downshift is "Limp In" mode. That is about when the Clutch Volumn is recalculated. It may be having OverDrive issues (which is internal) You need to have a diagnostic done with a scanner. Find out which fault is occuring and then go from there. There may even be updates for the TCM. Let me know how that goes?
