Question about 1997 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

Overdrive problem While driving the overdrive light will sometimes start flashing. Pushing the buttom has no effect on the problem. A couple of times it actually kicked the overdrive off while driving down the road. What specific would cause this problem, and is there a code for that particular problem? Thanks, Arnold Marsee

    Same problem with 2000 Expy. Bought it 6 weeks ago and the OD light comes off in hilly areas. on level (or down hill) the light goes off (resets) after 2 min. Dealer stated the transmission fluid is old and burned causing internal damage due to overheating. Dealer stated I need new transmission. I am currently getting a second opinion

OK, here is an update - The torque booster pump broke, so I had transmission rebuilt at Benchmark. So far a year and 20K miles later we have no problems.

    Transmission (torque converter) went again 4 years later (2014). A complete rebuilt. The OD flashing indicates the transmission is overheating. If you continue driving, and the transmission overheats a lot, the computer will disconnect it (put it in neutral). Regardless, flashing OD light means there is a very serious problem with transmission.

I was driving and the orang light came on the dash board of my 2004 LX Sorento jeep. It is to the left on the dash board. what does this mean?


Check for the overdrive buttom on the shift lever, you may have simply depressed the overdrive button and that takes it out of overdrive until you push the button again. If that's not it, please describe the shape of the light.

Sounds like an ECM going out. The systems being effected are not related and usually only connected though the ECM. Have it checked at the dealer.

You have overdrive cancel soleniod problem. What it does, when you hit the overdrive buttom it activate the overdrive off and on. You should have it check.
