You will need to first have the trany computer scanned for codes these codes will point to problem area, this may be due to a bad switch or bad soleniod for the overdrive.

    I had a new tranny put in my '03 Tribute a few weeks before driving 3000 miles from Alaska to Colorado. Twice during the trip, going up steep hills, the O/D light started flashing. It stopped after a while each time and it hasn't come back in weeks. I stopped at the parts store and borrowed a code reader, but it was the emissions code reader which came up empty of course. Is there a different code reader for the tranny and is it something I can do with one at the parts store or do I have to take it somewhere to have diagnosed?

My 01 Ford Escape over drive light started flashing and then the transmission started slipping what's the problem with it


the overdrive light flashing is just like a check engine light. you should take your car to a reliable tranny shop and have them scan for codes. The slipping could be the start of a serious problem.

Sounds like a speed sensor is not letting the torque converter go into lock up mode. This condition will affect fuel consumption. Check OBDII for speed sensor fault.

Overdrive light started flashing


the OD light is flashing to let u know a fault has occurred in the transmission electronic controls or that it is slipping plus other issues, go to Kragen or Autozone and ask them to run a trouble code test, it is free, post the code back here for me to look at.
