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

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.

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.
