IF the light is on and NOT blinking, it means that the system is HOLDING your transmission from shifting into overdrive. If it is blinking, it could mean that there are more serious issues involved.

The car will shift into Drive and at some point slam back into Second gear.

You can only manually shift the transmission, and then only from First to Second.

It needs to be looked at by a professional. I would not suggest driving this car for very much longer without having it checked. If you must, only drive very short distances. Lol.

First of all, if your light is on, something is wrong, even if it's just a sensor that tells your light to come on. I would recommend getting a General Motors computer reading thing that you plug into your dashboard that flashes the light to a code. Then you can diagnose what's wrong.

Since the check engine light comes on, start by having the code pulled from the computer that is causing the check engine light to come on. Most auto parts stores will do this for free and tell you what might be wrong.

If you see a light on the dashboard that flashes the word 'TRAC', then it is the traction control telling you that the car is struggling to find traction. If it flashed constantly, there may be something wrong with one of your tyres.

What is wrong when engine light turns on?

The check engine or service engine soon light comes on to alert you that there is or was a problem with the emissions system on your vehicle. If the light comes on steady and stays on, it means that there is a problem and you should have it checked out soon. If it comes on and flashes, it means you will cause damage if you continue driving.

Why does the overdrive light keep blinking on a 1996 Mazda 2300?

A flashing OD light means there is a problem with your transmission. Your truck should continue to operate, but without overdrive capability, have it checked out at a shop. Your Mazda Pickup is almost identical to the Ford Ranger and thus should have a Ford transmission, when there is a problem with the transmission the OD light with either come on or Flash and sometimes the Check Engine light with come on too depending on what is wrong with the tranny.

Fortunately, the engine light is flashing. That means that the computer has a code for you to read. Borrow, rent or buy a code scanner for your vehicle, plug it in and find out what the computer is telling you, then the mystery will be gone.
