if the overdrive light is blinking then there is a problem with the TCM transmission control module. if you have access to a scanner, pull the codes, that will lead you on the path to what is wrong. if you dont you will have to take it for service.

I bet money on the tranny speed sensor being the problem- I think NAPA has em for about $100 bucks or so, but that has been a while. Good luck

Ok, make sure the tcm is connected properly. there is a o/d shift solenoid that is controlled by this device(tcm/pcm). if the wires and module aren't connected properly or, if the tcm/pcm is malfunctioning, it will render the OD inoperable. inspect the tcm and wires on the trans for correct connections and fit. test the module for its operational value and, pull the pan on the trans to test the OD shift solenoid as well.

The OD off switch is powered by the cab fuse panel, Fuse #29 ( 5A ).
If this fuse is blown, could be chaffed wires at the base of the gear shift lever, where they turn out of the chrome tube( behind the plastic cover ).
Without this fuse working, the PCM cannot be signaled to take the truck out of OD, so it could just be the fuse causing the issue. Please add a comment on what you find on the fuse.
