The reason your OD lite blinks and stays on means that your transmission control module has detected a problem such as a possible slipping clutch during a shift point you will need to have the vehicle scanned for codes and further repair
When the overdrive light blinks that means a malfunction has been detected - get it checked out
my check engine light stays on and the o/d light blinks....what could this mean?
A malfunction has been detected
There may be a reason why a Ford Expedition's overdrive light is flashing. Check the manual to see if there is a reason. If not, take your Ford to a mechanic.
The transmission has set a code and you need to get it checked.
overdrive light blinks when there is a problem in the transmission. take it to a good transmission repairer, as soon as you can to be fixed, or it will leave you broke down on the road somewhere
Mine has the same problem. The transmission guy said not to worry about it.
od light is the overdrive unit on the transmission. If you drive on the freeway you should have the overdrive unit on, on the streets the unit should be off. The light usually doesn't have anything to do with overheating. I would look for some other issue.
Overdrive is the normally allowed position so you don't see the light on If you turn OFF the overdrive , the overdrive off light will light up or if there is a problem the overdrive off light will flash
Normally the overdrive is allowed , so the overdrive OFF light does not light up When the overdrive is switched off , the overdrive OFF light will light up to let you know that the overdrive has been switched off
overdrive light keeps flashing
The overdrive is "ON" when the light is "OFF". Notice the light for the overdrive has a slash through it.
The overdrive light will be off when the overdrive switch is pushed in. If the light flashes then that's a trouble shooting code.
The transmission may be damaged. My wife and I had an Explorer and it did the exact same thing, and shortly after the transmission went out. Have it checked out at a reputable shop or dealer.
That happen to me when I had a transmission problem on my 2002. You need to goto the dealer. Are you having problems with hard shifting? email me offline email@example.com
keep the overdrive shaft button pressed, there is a panel light called "O/D" that should light indicating the overdrive is OFF. In that case make sure the light is OFF which means overdrive is ON.
get it checked, because if the ligt blinks, something is wrong.
It is important to know why a Check engine light blinks. In many cars, when it blinks so many times, it is indicating a code, which is indicating the problem number for the specific car.
Light being on means overdrive is inactive
if you have overdrive in that car it means that your about to go into overdrive
My light usually blinks when I start the car and then stops later on, I usually take it in when the light is solid. You should check your owner's manual if you are concerned.
There should be a light that indicates when your o/d is on. If the light doesn't work, then try to pay attention to how many times your car shifts when you're going 20 mph. It should shift twice. If not, then it is off.
If the overdrive's off light is on that means it's off. If it is off then the overdrive is on.
