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.
why is subaru forester 1998 hold light flashing
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.
These transmission are rear wheel drive 4 speed automatics, that are all computer controlled. Common reasons for the overdrive light flashing are the external sensors on the vehicle like the throttle position sensor or vehicle speed sensor quite often go bad, causing these symptoms. Always run a scanner first to see if a sensor is causing your problem.
A malfunction has been detected
Which Yellow light, what does the symbol look like
It means you turned it off, usually a little button on the end of the shifter.
A person needs to pay attention to their warning lights. If a service engine light is flashing, this means that there is a problem within the engine.
If it's just a round flashing light that has no indication as to it's meaning, it's probably the Daytime Running Light indicator. It's only on when the headlights are OFF. If it's flashing, it generally means that one of your DRL's has burned out.

The number 5 engine cylinder is misfiring
On a 1998 Ford Explorer : If you mean the " O/D OFF " light , that indicates that the Over Drive on the transmission has been switched off using the transmission control switch on the end of your gear selector lever ( P R N etcetera ) If you haven't switched the Over Drive off or the light is flashing take it in to have it checked / repaired ( overdrive is the normally allowed position , but if you are towing something or if you are driving in hilly country where the transmission is constantly changing from overdrive to drive , you want to switch the overdrive off ( O/D OFF will appear in the dash )
yes i have overdrive button
Top Gear Overdrive happened in 1998.
Tip: The oil light flashing indicates that the pressureof the oil is low, the light does not necessarily indicates when the oil level is low. The problem could be a bad oil pump or a leak in the filter.
If the light is not flashing you can drive it until you can have it repaired. If the check engine light is flashing, park it. Otherwise you will do catastrophic damage to the catalytic converter costing several hundreds of dollars to replace.
Overdrive allowed is the normal position
Because it does not have an overdrive gear.
Top Gear Overdrive was created on 1998-11-23.

On a 1998 Ford Crown Victoria : Overdrive is the normally allowed position , although the transmission will not shift into overdrive until the speed is higher If the overdrive is switched off , on the gauge cluster just to the right / and above the speedometer you will see the O/D OFF warning light ( if you have the digital dash it will show overdrive off in the upper right )
If the check engine line is flashing then that means there is a real problem and you should have it looked at, But if the light is on and NOT flashing the it is most likely a problem with the emmisions system and most likely an oxygen sensor.
On a 1998 Ford E-250 : The transmission control switch is on the end of the gear selector lever Push the button and the word OFF should light up near the end of the lever when the overdrive feature is turned off
On a 1998 Ford Explorer, Overdrive Band Failed Off means that the vehicle did not shift into Overdrive properly. The band for this gear should be serviced soon.
