You didn't state the make, model, or year of the car. On most newer model cars the transmission is computer controlled. A flashing OD light means there is a problem. Take the car to the dealer or to a good independent transmission shop. Avoid chain transmission shops.

What would cause the overdrive light to flash on a 1999 ford windstar when you are doing about 55 miles per hour?

The light will flash if the vehicle senses that you should be in overdrive (based on speed) but aren't. There should be a button on the end of your gearshift lever to turn overdrive back on. The only time you should turn that off is, for example, if you are pulling a trailer in the mountains. Turn OD back on and the light will stop flashing. If it doesn't stop then there is a problem with the transmission going into overdrive.
