When your O/D light is flashing it means the Power train control module or transmission module has detected a fault with the transmission which needs attention.This could be a electrical or a mechanical issue within the transmission that needs repair. thanks for using fixya

2002 ford explorer od light gets flashing and i loss power

The flashing light means there is a system problem with the automatic transmission. You will probably notice a lack of power when starting from a stop with this lamp flashing. The dealer or local mechanic should be able to scan for a fault code.

Ford tarus se 2002 3.0 litre v6 the check engine light was on then it goes flashing

Flashing "check engine" light means to get it checked now.
A lot of parts stores will check it for free to find out the codes causing the malfunction.
(I'll bet you have a misfire on one of your cylinders.)

A flashing Check Engine light means you have a ignition Misfire, start by replacing the spark plugs and spark plug wires, one or more is defective. If you have a electronic engine control fault code reader the cylinder or cylinders that are misfiring will set a fault code, the codes are P0300-P0306, the last number being the number of the cylinder ( cylinders 1-6) the computer has detected a misfire in.

Service engine soon light stays on,on my 2002 Ford F-150

A flashing SES light means an ignition problem. A constant one means emission control. The most common emission problem is an O2 sensor. Easy to replace and not too expensive; around 60 bucks. Get the car scanned and a parts shop that will do it for free and you should have your answer.

What does it mean when my 2002 f150 service light

a Flashing CEL light usually means a mis fire, if the flashing s in groups ( ie of 5 ) it is indicating the cylinder number. If you have a straight series of flashes, it is a general misfire code ( P0300 ).

Go to an autozone and have the codes pulled, get the actual code number, not what the guy thinks should be replaced, and post a comment back to your problem.

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 ?
