    Scanned with obII with ignition in the on position, no codes. Does vehicle have to be running to check for trans codes?

Hi,

This light flashes when the computer detects a fault, it is a dual purpose light, it will indicate when you have selected to cancel overdrive and will flash when there is a fault. The fault may be something as simple as an external sensor or it could be an internal fault with the transmission itself, you will need to have the computer scanned to get the fault code to determine the direction of diagnosis. If you don't have access to a scan tool, most Autozone stores will scan for free.

Note - As the transmission is slipping, i am pretty sure the OD light is due to an internal fault in transmission. Get the car scanned for codes and then, we could follow up from there.

Good Luck!!

Thanks!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    You need to have the codes with ignition key to the ' II ' position.Have you properly scanned the car???

    OD light is ON, the transmission is slipping and yet no code?????

    Is check engine light being ON?

    Let me know,so that we could proceed.

    Good Luck!!

    Thanks!!

    Check engine light is not on. The scanner I have is just to check engine codes. OD Light flashes and sometimes it doen't flash, yet transmission does not shift properly.

    You need to scan the car when the light is ON. If the light is off ( as you said intermittent ), it would not give you any error code. I am pretty sure this is related to transmission.However, without the code it is impossible for any mechanic to follow up.

    Good Luck!!

    Thanks!!

    Would the overdrive relay possibly cause this problem? $15.00 part if its worth a shot?

    Thanks for your response!!

    Yes the solenoid body has had its issues causing slow reverse
    engagement, intermittent harsh shifting, slipping on up-shifts, this can
    be verified with a pressure test and a check for codes in the computer.
    If there are gear ratio codes and the overdrive light is flashing then
    this usually means the computer has seen a missed shift or slipping
    condition, this is usually a little more costly problem, the
    transmission may need to come out and be overhauled or replaced if this
    is the case.

    If the overdrive light is flashing that means it is seeing a electrical
    concern or a missed shift concern or torque converter slippage detected,
    and will set a memory code. When the light is flashing, this means the
    problem is a hard fault happening now. It could be a sensor concern or
    slipping clutches. So without a code it is hard to say for certain what
    the cause and cost could be.


    However, you could try.It would be worth a gamble.

    Good Luck!!

    Thanks!!

Hi
Please check this link to related to your query…
http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=116745

also check whether the friction plates are worn which needs to be replaced. Torque converter may be failing. Automatic transmissions can and will wear out in time.

Let us know if you have somethin more to ask else accept the suggestion.

1997 Mercury Mountaineer Overdrive flashing


When the OD light flashes it means the transmission has developed a fault. As to what the fault may be is yet to be seen without the system being scanned. In many cases the light indicates the transmission is slipping, you may not feel it slipping, but the computer (called the PCM) senses it through the internal speed sensors that measure main shaft input speed and shaft output speed in RPM. Other problems like shift solenoids can cause this as well. Another factor can be the transmission fluid is worn out, it should be replaced along with a new filter every 60,000 miles minimum.

What does it mean when your O/D off light is flashing and the transmissionis slipping


The flashing OD light indicates there is a problem in the transmission control system. When the Transmission Control Unit detects a malfunction it will flash the OD light and store a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) in the computer. You will need to have a Ford Dealer pull the codes and determine exactly what is wrong.
I wish I could be more specific, but there are about 120 different reasons for the flashing OD light.

OD off Light Flashing on my 1998 Ford Explorer XLT 4.0 V


The OD light is flashing to alert u to the fact that some kind of fault has occured in the transmission, the problem is in many cases a slipping condition, you need to have the trans control system tested for the trouble codes that are stored when this light flashes, this will let u know what the problem is and a direction to follow to repair it.

Transmission slipping


do u have any transmission trouble codes? u should if the OD light is flashing, the light flashes to alert u that a electronic malfunction is occurring in the trans controls, u may just have a bad trans connector or a shift solenoid starting fail due to a shorted field closing coil.
