Normally, there is no interdependency between the starter and the overdrive button.
However, assuming the problem could be a fuse; The fuses are usually located on the drivers side of the dash, on the lower portion on the dash. You should see a detent place to pull out a small cover about 5 inches square. When that is removed you will see a bunch of fuses, perhaps 10 to 15. There is usually a little tool on the back side of the cover you removed that aids in removing each fuse. If you pull each fuse and hold it up to the light you will see a small piece of wire. If you can see a gap in the wire, that's the bad fuse. Be careful when you reinsert the a good fuse, because there are usually some blank slots and it would be easy to put a good fuse back in the wrong slot.
If you find a bad fuse, there might be some good ones on the back of the cover you removed. If not, you can get a replacment at any auto store. The fuses are colored coded so be sure the replacement fuse is the same color as the bad one.
Hope this helps

The overdrive light blinking indicates a code has been stored in you computers transmission control module, the cost will depend on the problem, some have had problems with the torque convertor clutch slipping, could be more major, get the code pulled out and I can provide you with a more complete answer. -Jared
