1996 Ford Countour is because the transmission is overheating usually due to overfilling with Transmission Fluid.

This is not necesarily true. line preasure could be down, torque converter slipping, especially in the ford axod transmisions, they have a short longevity and once that light comes on stop driving it and get it to a tranny shop. this light is equal to an engine check light only for the tranny. However the transmission has no way to shut itself off to prevent damage.

Why is the 4x4 light flashing all of the time on your 1992 areostar electronic four wheel drive?

The light is flashing probably because the computer isn't receiving a signal from one of the sensors. They are mounted around the center differential and tell the computer whether the rear wheels are spinning at a different speed than the front wheels, which would indicate the need to engage AWD. Check the wiring to ensure there are no breaks, and that the connectors are in good condition. If the light comes on and stays on rather than flashing, pull over and do not drive. The differential or an axle needs gear oil and will be destroyed if it doesn't get it.
