    When mine did that it turned out the transmission was bad. When I tore it down, the overdrive fibres were all burned up. Needed rebuild or replacement. That light is sometimes referred to as the "SELL IT NOW LIGHT". Pretty soon you will see it slip worse and worse. Not worth a rebuild if you can't do it yourself. I rebuilt it, it lasted 10 days ...Now i put a used tranny in with 72,000 on it. Runs good now, but considering selling it while it does. The AX4S is ****.

96 ford explorer battery light on volt guage high then lights blink and drops to normal and batt light goes off for a few seconds then it does it again but it does not die. Whats wrong?


Sounds like you may have a voltage regulator going bad in your alternator. They will usually check them for free at chain parts stores. Probably won't even have to take it off the vehicle.

The overdrive lights blinks when I'm driving on the expressway whats that?


The operating system has spotted a problem with the transmission and is blinking the lite as a result. Usually when the light is blinking it means that the transmission isn't capable of, or being allowed to, shift into overdrive. I would have a transmission shop check this one out as soon as possible to see what is causing the light to blink as there may be a more serious problem happening within the system or with a transmission component.
