You'll need to have codes scanned to see just what it is that the TCM doesn't like.. there are many things that can set the O/D light to flashing. Without knowing the code, it's only guessing.

Generally, this happens with faulty wiring, wire loose or go to bad switch, but need to know is isn't any code there to confirm.

Keep us updated.

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.

OD light flashes


The flashing OD light indicates there is a problem in the transmission control system. When the Transmission Control Unit detects a malfunction it will flash the OD light and store a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) in the computer. You will need to have a Ford Dealer pull the codes and determine exactly what is wrong.I wish I could be more specific, but there are about 120 different reasons for the flashing OD light.

I suspect my 1995 windstar may have a bad modulator valve the fluid level seems to go away with no apparent leak and now it takes off in 2nd gear and won't shift to 3rd or od and the od light on t


I've been doing research on these vans. Seems I remember that if the OD light flashes >>> fluid level is low. Also, I read where Ford wants you to overfill fluid so as to allow you to go around corners without loss of lubracation. By this time you may have melted it down and bought a Honda. I have a 95 Teal color and just in flawless shape, however it won;t go in reverse. Just follow the hood ornament and don;t look back...right ! ?

O/D light flashes


when the OD light flashes it is to alert you to the fact a fault has been detected by the TCM (transmission control module), u now need a dealer to test the system for the fault code that is stored in the TCM memory whenever the OD light is flashing.

OD off Light Flashing on my 1998 Ford Explorer XLT 4.0 V


The OD light is flashing to alert u to the fact that some kind of fault has occured in the transmission, the problem is in many cases a slipping condition, you need to have the trans control system tested for the trouble codes that are stored when this light flashes, this will let u know what the problem is and a direction to follow to repair it.

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 ?
