SOURCE: my over drive light blinks and it shifts hard

The transmission has a problem with its shift points and likely it's due to the solenoids in the engine being defective or clogged with clutch dust from wear and tear.

Check the level of transmission fluid to make sure it's high enough, and filled to the top.

OD light blinking means there is a transmission problem and a DTC -diagnostic trouble code is stored in the TCM- transmission control module or the PCM - engine computer ,which ever controls the trans electronic's . Probably a bad shift solenoid . Have it checked for codes .

Check engine light on and D blinking in drive on 2003 CRV


It means that there is a problem with the transmission, this is usually accompanied by a shifting issue and is usually caused by a bad transmission solenoid. Take to a shop to have transmission codes checked to see what the problem is.

TRANS RANGE SENSOR PO 708


Code 708 is for a problem with the circuit for the gear shift range selector sensor. The sensor tells the computer what position the gear shift is in, such as drive or reverse.
The sensor and circuit would need to be tested.

My od light is blinking and the trans is shifting hard the fluid is full and clean it was working good parked for 15 minutes and this started


The light means there are codes stored, you must retrieve these codes with a good scan tol then base your repair on the code information. There are about 60 different trans codes which can store and all will cause harsh shifts.

Car drives great shifts great just wont go into over drive.over drive light blinks when tryed .i was told its the forward clutch controle spring or retaining clip


YOU NEED TO HAVE THE ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED TRANSMISSION MODULE TESTED FOR FAULT CODES, THE FACT THE LIGHT BLINKS MEANS THERE IS A FAULT CODE STORED IN THE TRANS COMPUTER, THIS IS THE 1ST STEP IN DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM.

My tranny is slow shifting and the s light is blinking


The "S" light flashing means the speed sensor went out. Is an easy fix. I got mine for less than $40 and it was not hard to install. As for the gears going in too slow, I dont know. Good luck.
