My overdrive light is flashing and shifts erratically.Only happens when I sit and idle for a while when it's hot outside.I tend to think it's some part overheating.When I shut it off and let it cool off a bit I'm okay.OR just start driving slowly in first gear to create some air flow,soon everything is back to normal.2001 Ford E 450 class C Motorhome.

SOURCE: hard shift and blinking overdrive

The blinking overdrive button is telling u that a serious fault has occurred in the electronic controls or a mechanical fault such as excess slippage is occurring.

SOURCE: Transmission trouble on 2002 Ford E-450 Super Duty

Hi, this is a defective OD shift solenoid that is located inside the trans pan. you will have to drop this pan in order to extract it for replacement. this solenoid, if damaged, cant initiate the shift sequence required for the OD to engage during operational procedures.

Simply replacing this solenoid will fix this issue.

NOw, concerning the erratic shifts. this is isolated within the transmission control module. it seems to be malfunctioning. you will need to replace this module as well.

SOURCE: The "off" light for the overdrive shut off flashes.

the light is flashing to alert you to the fact that a fault has been detected in the transmission, the most common is excessive slippage detected by the torque speed sensor as compared to the outshaft shaft speed sensor, U will need to have the system tested for the stored trouble code that is set when this OD light blinks.

1996 Toyota Hilux Surf hubs and diff erratically engaging and disengaging


Based on what you wrote about sitting for a week, my first thought is the battery. Does the truck start?

Next, do you get an error code with OBD2? I have a 97 4Runner that had a similar problem shifting into and out of overdrive. It was an electrical relay inside the tranny.

My thought is that if the battery is low perhaps a similar relay is trying to engage or disengage 4x4. Or that relay is just bad.

Could also be the 4X4 switch itself.

Here is your clue the ABS light and a erratic Tach, that is the speed sensor problem just to let you know they are known problems with the Sebring There is a (TSB) technical service bulletin, about speed sensor delay engagement that you are facing with
A/T-41TA/AE 42 LE Delay Gear Engagement Your fix is to have this check out you may be looking at a flash on the software of the TCM or even the PRNDL switch on the transmission

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

The fan relays or fan motor itself can be faulty that's why it tends to overheat. You will need to have it replaced if that's the case.

The motor shakes so bad it's because that you have a faulty TPS (throttle position sensor). If the TPS is faulty you'll have erratic idle.

One more reason why the engine shakes when driving is because the transmission fluid is burnt. If the fluid is burnt it tends not to shift so I suggest that you have the fluid replaced.

Hope this information was helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Will not shift into overdrive


There is an electronic sensor on the outside of the transmission.Change the filter and fluid and replace sensor.The sensor costs around $150.
"High speed" probably is over drive,so if it is turned off,it can't engage.I have found that cutting the overdrive switch on and off can cause excessive wear and tear on the overdrive. 

Regardless have the car scaned for a any codes thay is causing the problem. Just trying to keep the cost of repairs down by know exactly what the ECM has in it's memory for any malfunction that is creating your overdrive from engaging.
Good luck and hope this helps

97 FORD F250 OVERDRIVE SWITCH LIGHT KEEPS GOING ON & OFF. EVEN WHEN SITTING IDLE IN THE DRIVE WAY IT WILL GO ON FOR ABOUT HALF MINUTE, THEN WILL GO OFF. WHEN ROAD TESTED IT WILL GO ON ABOUT 30 SECONDS...


My 1995 ford f150 doing it, i believe, either because of a loose plug on the transmission and/or vaccum leak, but very annoying. I dont think the transmission itself is bad because when the overdrive is not flashing it works perfect. going to have the electrical plugs and vaccum hoses looked at. The container in the engine that holds gas vapor may have something to do with the conditions that control this particular models transmission response, I.E. "kick down".

Erratic shifting on 2001 f150 pickup


How many miles on it? Do you mean overdrive? Over drive will clunk when shifting in cruise. Mine lasted 212,000 miles but I have heard of them going out after 120,000, depends how you drive. That Traney is good till it starts acting up then you will need a complete overhaul. I got it done for $1800. Do not go to a Ford dealer, they quoted me $3200.

1996 Corolla Auto Transmission problem


Hi. 2005 Corolla CE. It's normal. They tend to do this when upshifting form 1st to 2nd gear. No timing chain readjustment needed.

96 Corolla. Overdrive not working properly, if not engaging after 45mph constantly. If driving on the city, is normal, but not after 45mph, when the car is trying to engage overdrive in order to save gas and preserve the trans gears. If not able to get help at the dealership, find another one and explain them the situation.
