2003 Mercury Mountaineer Electrical Problems?!?!?!

O/D light flashing is telling there is a problem with the transmission an trouble codes are stored . The clicking you hear in the rear climate control system is mode door or blend door actuator . There is no accumulator in the rear A/C system . If the A/C system had a accumulator it would be in the engine compartment . Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop.

Light flashes saying check gage, what does that mean? It just flashes while I am driving....maybe twice day.

I'd like to know too. My '99 Mountaineer does the same thing. I also find it annoying that gauge is misspelled.
