I have a 1994 Ford Taurus SHO and ever couple of weeks this OVERDRIVE OFF lite flashes for a couple of days then goes off. I suspect it has something to do with the transmission and its electronic sensors. Take your car to a transmission shop and hook up an analyzer to the ECM for the transmission. It also can be related to the Vehicle Speed Sensor. This sensor feeds to the ECM and if defective will disable the electronic Overdrive.

Why would the Overdrive Off warning light flicker in your 1987 Toyota Camry when the overdrive is on?

It shows that there is a problem with the transmission. Just like the check engine light, the overdrive light has codes that tell you what is wrong with the transmission and the various components connected with it.

What can be wrong if you can't get the overdrive to come off?

Take it in. There is either a problem with your transmission or with the overdrive switch itself. Overdrive switch should be a lot cheaper to fix. I'm assuming the light not only goes on, but the overdrive physically turns off as well when the light is on.

Flashing overdrive light, or one that goes out and won't come back on means you need to have your transmission checked. I believe in a 99 they have a computer hook up they can use to see if they can figure out what is wrong with the transmission.

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.

Means there is something wrong with your transmission. Need to hook up to a computer & get the code normally but can be external damage also. My 97 F150 did that when the transmission mount broke.

If the ABS light is on, it quite possible that the computer will not allow the transmission to shift into OD until the problem is repaired. Go to a good repair shop or your nearest dealer.

When I signal left the right backup light blinks why?

Does the turn signal also blink? If so, you have two wires touching. What happens when you put the vehicle in reverse and the backup light is supposed to come on? If the turn signal lights up and the backup light doesn't, you have the bulbs in the wrong socket.

There's a turn signal or running light out on that side, either front or rear. Turn on signal, get out and look. If both turn signals are working, chances are its the running light.
