Ford automatic overdrive transmissions after 1993 were electronically controlled by the pcm. inside the trans is a collection of speed and pressure sensors along with soleniods to control shifting and torque converter lockup. when one of these electronic components malfunction the pcm will set a trouble code and illuminate the light. some code readers will read the trans codes and unfortionatly i dont have a list available.

What do you do about the flashing overdrive light that comes on while you are driving in your 1996 ford explore Eddie Bauer?

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.
