    Fluid had already been serviced , actually I believe it is electrical or salvo. I disconnected battery (to clear computer) and has not happened but once since and it went out almost immediately. Does not do it in summer months at all. Filter and fluids are less than 6 months old (Nov 08)

Sounds like the transmission fluid is getting too viscus. Might want to check it, or replace it. I would just get the trans fluid replaced. Costs 80 dollars or can dIY for 25-30$

Speedometer not working on 2000 4 cylinder ranger. Also shifts out of OD at will. O/D light flashes. Tranny filter and oil changed but no improvement. What is the problem?

Sometimes gauges like that will become overheated time after time and cause a spot to be "cold saudered" where the connections on the circuit board go bad. If there is a discolored spot on the back of the speedometer try re-soldering the area that is discolored.

Check your operator's manual. Make sure any and all fuses that have anything to do with the affected items are not blown and are working properly. If you can; check for loose fuse connections or wires. Hope this helps. God bless!

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 ?
