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.

Commonly, the OD blinking and subsequent CEL are due to the tranny overheating. Most common on the 4 cylinder (AT) models. OD light blinking implies the tranny is overheating. the CEL appears when the tranny is significantly overheating. Frequent fluid changes and an auxillary tranny cooler can help extend the life. It appears that the transmission on the 4 cylinder is simply undersized.

On a 1996 Ford Explorer : Overdrive is the normally allowed position It won't shift into overdrive until the speed is greater anyway ( such as on the highway or freeway , my 1995 Explorer XLT doesn't shift into overdrive until I'm going 50 MPH / 80 KPH ) If you are towing something , or if you are driving in hilly country where the transmission is constantly shifting back and forth from overdrive to drive , then you want to shut the overdrive off using the transmission control switch on the end of your gear selector leaver ( P R N etcetera ) and the O/D OFF light will light up in your dash
