My 1998 explorer 5.0 did the same thing, i noticed the light flashing, then noticed that it hadnt shifted into overdrive. so i pressed the overdrive button *located on the end of shifter* it then shifted into overdrive and the light shut off. This happens easily, the button is very sensitive, the slightest touch even from shifting from Park to Drive can activate it. The button is for towing or hauling so you will substain torque and speed. hope this helps, write back if you still need help.

On a 1999 Ford Expedition : Overdrive is the normally allowed position It won't shift into overdrive ( the 4th " gear " of the transmission ) until the speed is higher anyway ( such as on a highway / freeway ) If you are towing something / or driving in hilly country and the transmission is shifting back and forth between overdrive and drive , then you want to shut off the overdrive on the transmission using the switch on the end of the gear selector lever . ( the word OFF will light up near the end of the gear selector lever )

Is it bad on a 2004 ford expedition Eddie Bauer transmission to keep it in overdrive?

The only reason not to leave it in overdrive would be if you are towing and going uphill. The car's computer will tell the transmission when to shift safely, but when under a very heavy load it may shift a lot. I usually only take overdrive off when I am towing going up hills where the grade changes frequently. If you are unsure, then it is better to keep it in overdrive all of the time and let the computer do the calculating. Fords actually have a pretty good system in place to remember how you drive so the computer will make the ride most comfortable.
