I wouldn't believe it either-get the codes read somewhere else, and write the codes down, then come back on here for help-a flashing OD light could be as simple as a minor electrical problem. Does it drive alright in the other forward gears?

Go to Autozone or another auto parts seller and ask if they have an OBD 2 reader you can use (it should be free - sometimes if you're nice and the weather is ok, they'll go out to your car and put the analyzer on the car for you. Bring the analyzer back to them once you complete the analysis and they'll show you what the code means.

My check engine light/overdrive flashes on my 2000 kia sephia what could be the problem?


There are many different sources for the light to come on. Anything that caused combustion to fail, commonly called a misfire will set the light. Various sensors such as oxygen sensors that evaluate the exhaust before and after the gases are burned in the converter. Transmission codes may set the check engine light to appear. If the car is running okay, get it fixed in a reasonable amount of time such as within the month. It will probably save you fuel if you do. However if the Check engine light is flashing, you should not be driving it as damage is being done to the converter.
