    hi, when I turn on my explorer 2002 V8 the O/D light goes on and off and doesnt let me turn it on or off since its going crazy flashing all the time.

    this happened to me once. I asked around, and I was told to get the transmission filter changed. I have not changed it yet, but it is not a consistant problem. It may be worth a try though if it is a constant problem for you.

This may be because the transmission has a problem. It is trying to save itself from further damage by self-disengaging the O/D.

Please take this vehicle in for warranty service (if available) or to a trained mechanic/transmission shop for evaluation. Continued driving could further damage the tranny.

Good Luck.

2004 ford explore lights went out

Is the timer located on your rear view mirror? if so then you may have accidentally pushed it too far, so that they turn off to quickly. If you have that type try pushing the little knob toward the middle, and that makes them stay on longer, and if you want them on longer still push it all the way to the right.
Hope this helps.

It sounds like the cruise module is detecting something wrong. I would check the brake pedal switch, it might be out of adjustment or someone might have kicked it by accident.
