In many cars, this light means the car wants to use the overdrive gear but it has been overridden by the driver. If you have an overdrive button, try switching it on and see if the light stops flashing.
Another reason for the light may be that the transmission cannot shift into overdrive due to a fault. To be sure, check your owners manual and let us know if you still have questions.

Usually the flashing light means the overdrive option is disabled. You would have the engine computer scanned to find out what the trouble codes are to proceed with testing.

The flashing light means the overdrive will not work.

My overdrive light is flashing indicating the overdrive is off


this could mean there is a problem with the transmission,but most times when OD light is flashing it is because the wiring to the OD switch is broken.
is the OD switch on the end of the gear shift lever ?
or does your vehicle have the shifter on console between seats ?
