If you have the shifter on the column...I can't help you. I your shifter is on the floor (center console), then you take something to pry up on the gray plate that covers a large portion of that console where the P, R N D D 2 and 1 are. Slide this plate up and look for the bulb under there.

1.) Turn Key in ignition just enough to turn the radio on but NOT start the car. 2.) Put your foot on the brake and put your car in Neutral (this will make moving the plate easier). 3.) Open Ashtray and take it out. 4.) While gently holding bottom of the gray plate that covers the gear shift and indicators, use a small thin flat head screw driver to pry up the edges. Gently move the cover to the side. Be careful and work your way around the edges and you will have it up in minutes. 5.) Using a Philips screw driver, carefully remove the 3 gold screws that secure the shift plate. I strongly suggest using a magnetized screwdriver so that you don't lose any screws to the depths below the console. 6.) Carefully pull the gear shift assembly a little out of the console. 7.) On the left side you will see a couple small wires on a black node coming out from the area right next to the gear indicator icons. Turn that small black bulb case counter-clockwise and pull out. 8.) Remove bulb and replace :) I was actually able to recycle the green silicone like cover that goes over the bulb. Overall 10 mins and $2.80 later, like new :)

Remove the cover to the shifter column. The indicator light will need to be detached from the wiring harness. Reverse the process to install the new light.

The OD light flashing is an indicator of an electrical failure in the transmission. Get it fixed now or replace the tranny later.

Replace your AT Control Unit (Automatic Transmission Computer)

Sport. It changes the shift pattern of the automatic transmission. You can turn this on or off.

because the light is the indicator that the transmission has locked into place, if it doesnt then the transmission will give you hell...

If it's the arrow-shaped one in the dashboard of an automatic transmission Jeep, then it's supposed to indicate when you are supposed to up-shift.

Take out the side indicator light assembly (which is most difficult part) and then replace the bulb.

automatic transmission oil temperature warning light

You have probably turned off the overdrive function of the automatic transmission. Look for a small button on the gear selector reachable with your thumb.

There are several things that can cause your automatic transmission not to go into first gear. The most common cause is low transmission fluid.

If it is equipped with the automatic transmission - the "P" indicator on your gear selector will remain lit for 16 minutes after shutdown. After the 16 minutes has passed, you'll notice the lamp has gone out. That is your indicator that the vehicle has entered "sleep" mode (when the light is out).

The indicator panel should by carefully pried out. Then you can change the bulb.

This light warns that transmission oil temperature on an automatic transmission is too high. If the light is flashing it indicates that the transmission control system is not working properly.

Standard or automatic transmission, they both are mounted to the transmission.
