I bought a new used 1999 and it was doing that. The Dealer replace the overdrive solenoid. That never solved the problem. My light only starts to blink when I really put my foot in it say 90+mph. It then resets when I turn off the engine and restart. It probably has to do with a pressure sensor in the auto trans. I now have put over 70,000 mile for over 115,000 miles and have not had a problem so I let it blink when it comes on. Try having the filter replaced/cleaned too.

What do you do about the flashing overdrive light that comes on while you are driving in your 1996 ford explore Eddie Bauer?

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.
