The overdrive light also serves as the "check engine" light but for the transmission. If its flashing it means the computer recognizes a problem with the transmission or its electronics. If the engine was just replaced, they probably forgot to plug something in, or some wiring got damaged in the engine swap. It can be scanned with a scan tool for a code and the code will indicate what circuit is at fault.

O?D light flashing on 1998 ford explorer saying it is off. when you try to drive it the overdrive goes in and out.


the overdrive light flashing on a A4Od transmission is a fault signal for the transmission , just like a ck engine light but for the transmission only , get a code read to find the fault stored in the ecm and then you'll know what exactly it is
its very common for engine swaps to have a few intermittent sensor failures on restart due to the connectors all getting maybe not all the care and protection they deserve in the swap (plastic baggies) and having a bit of dirt and corrosion in them now (spray contact cleaner)

with the od in/out/in/out an educated guess is that the engine throttle position sensor is not being read now , but a code reader will tell all

Overdrive Off light keeps flashing. Vehicle is a Ford Explorer '96.


If your overdrive off light keeps flashing this indicates an electrical or mechanical fault has occurred with your transmission and a diagnostic code has been stored in your trucks on board computer. The stored codes can be read by diagnostic scanner and will aid in making a diagnosis of the problem that is occurring.

My overdrive light is flashing indicating the overdrive is off


this could mean there is a problem with the transmission,but most times when OD light is flashing it is because the wiring to the OD switch is broken.
is the OD switch on the end of the gear shift lever ?
or does your vehicle have the shifter on console between seats ?
