Question about 1995 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

My 1995 Ford Explorer overdrive light is flashing but the transmissions seems to shift sometimes but not all the time. Sometimes the light does not start flashing until I am slowing down and it begins to downshift. Is this a normal continuous problem or do I really need a new transmission? If I do need a new transmission, is this a continuous problem where I will have to keep replacing the transmission?

Start with simply changing filter and fluid for transmission. If that doesn,t work go to your local parts place and scan the codes on your vehicle. I have the same problem and that is what I am doing.

You should have the computer self tested by someone with a scan tool. The flashing overdrive light indicates a concern with the transmission. Self testing the computer should produce a fault code and give you some idea of what is wrong.

It's possible the light bulb has a bad filament or connection. If the transmission doesn't seem to be shifting in and out of overdrive while you're driving then chances are its the bulb or connection.

Unfortunately, Explorers are notorious for transmission issues. The overdrive light flashing is either the detection of a shorted EPC (Electronic Pressure Controller) or a defective sensor. Bad shifts are a sign of the EPC, while good performance would suggest a bad sensor. I have also seen issues with the valve bodies and torque converters.

You can try removing the electrical connections on the transmission, cleaning them and putting di-electric grease on them, but unfortunately, you will likely have to take a trip to a transmission shop. Swing by an Autozone and have them pull your codes. If the light is flashing, a trouble code will be set to help direct you towards the issue.

My overdrive


the OD light flashing indicates that the transmission control module has observed a fault. Take the car to a local aftermarket parts place and get the codes pulled (typically free) this will send you in the right direction regarding a repair.

Replace the Transmissions Control Module (TCM) that mounts on the driver's side firewall. I have had to do this twice with mine. Glad the TCM was under warranty.
