The dealership had no code Then the light was not blinking while they had it They did not offer you a flight recorder Thats how they were able to determine that a sensor was malfunctioning on my Ford.
My 01 F150 Suoercrew had the same problem. When I took it to the dealer it wasnt blinking but they did determine that the torque conventer was bad. They replaced it and it worked fine for a couple months and now its starting to shift hard again. They say thats normal... Yeah right.
I have been getting a flashing OD light for a couple months now but it only starts blinking when I go over 80-85 mph. My truck just turned 100000 miles this week. The light does not seam to affect anything. No hard shifts or anything........ after reading your comments though I suppose I shoud get it checked ASAP
On my 2002 screw I had the blinking light after I installed the shift kit. OD worked fine and didnt seem to be any problem. The kit shifted too hard to I changed the settings and reseated all the connectors etc and light went off. My understanding is it could be any multitude of problems causeing the light to flash.
present before the upgrade -WAY TOO hard of a shift from 1 to 2 (this must be fixed) -Very nice shift from 2-3 and 3-OD (quick and expected firmness) -Very nice upshifting when accelerating -11quarts of Mercon V ATF -a little sticking with the manual shift lever between N and D (I noticed this on the VB before I installed as well but figured it would work itself in. -And of coursethe blinking overdrive
Mike at MadEnterprise was nice enough to loan me a replacement so I could tear this thing apart and reinstall. Status blinking OD LED There was a plug inside next to the gear selector that did not seat all the way. Make sure you audibly here click on both of the plugs. If not look at the contacts and make sure they are bent in enough to MAKE GOOD contact. Hard 1-2 shift (vehicle rattling) put the stock
My Windstar had the same sensor fail three times. Each time with the blinking OD light. The sensor was cheap enough (about 40) but the labor was 120. Was told I couldnt slap it on myself because of all the computer settings. Each time it failed after the 12K warranty. This last one has held up about 30K. This particular sensor caused no shift and I was stuck in first. Not fun.
Well guess what it happened agian...overdrive light is blinking agian after driving it since the previous time they reset the code on the tranny. Happened last night under a hard acceleration when trying to merge onto the interstate. Getting sick of this and dropping the truck off until they fix it right this time....Oh yeah and also having the regional Ford representative looking at the truck on Wednesday of this week...guess that it couldnt have happened at a better time. O) or is it O(
Well to keep you guys updated...it turns out that it is the 1-2 shift cylinoid that has went out of the tranny. Must have been going out the first time that the trany light started blinking and now it really went out completely. lightninstruck- Thanks for the information it will help not only me but a lot of people in the future. Dang I wish that I had a lightning
my 2003 lightning is having this problem with the overdrive light blinkingbut it seems like all i have is second and reverse gear..
Start here blinking OD light and P0713 Code Go get it scanned if you dont have the means your trans is trying to tell you something fix it before it gets way out of hand
your tranny is going The light just started blinking in my 2001 Super Duty which I plow with it started shifting really hard and didnt want to go into overdrive so I took it to a tranny shop and thats what they said it does when its going
my 98 was blinking when i got over 115 kmhr and then started to clunk when taking off from a set of lights. When i checked my transfer case fluid level it was very low and the rear seal on the tc was leaking bad. I changed the seal and changed the fluid and so far that seams to have fixed the problem....hopefully your problem is as simple as mine was... good luck.
I have a 97 with the e40d and mine does the exact same thing. I took it too a friends dads tranny shop and he had the truck all day he drove it scanned it and couldnt find anything wrong with the tranny so my guess is its the TQ converter because it seems when im in overdrive it would slip and the rpm will go up 3 to 400 rpms and then back down and thats when the light turns on. Oh and its been like this for the past 5 months now and nothings gotten worse
If the overdrive light is blinking then your transmissions overdrive isnt working for some reason.
AjRagno- No major symptoms but I have noticed a harder than normal downshift a couple times.. spridel- I have driven the truck 4 times since I first had the problem.. The light starts continuously blinking after about 5-10 minutes of driving.. No specific noticable event seems to trigger the problem but like I said it has happened 4 times now.. Thanks for the feedback so far Let me know if you have any additional thoughts
I had this exact problem started with the light blinking and then started to notice hard downshifts. it was the internal harness and temp sensor. make sure you have the filter replaced while they have the pan down. Also have them drain the TC and you will have a complete service for the priceof an extra 5 qts of fluid. frank
One thing that I noticed on the drive home tonight - the overdrive light does not start blinking until I get to about 45-50mph which is when the transmission shifts into OD (4th gear).. No noticeable problems with with the tranny in OD but that is when the light comes on.. I was beginning to think that the problem went away but it turns out that because there was so much traffic (keeping the speed

blinking OD light indicated a problem with the transmission have your codes checked immediately. Do not continue to drive the car until you find out what the problem is. - Scott
i just tried to start the car everything went fine and there were no blinking lights
OD light is blinking 16 short bursts right after I start the car what does this mean
its just silly. It runs PERFECT until the light starts blinking. When the light starts blinking it shifts hard when slowing down. (between 1-2 I think)

The blinking is telling you that you have a transmission problem. Resetting the computer might shut off the light until the problem recurs but it wont fix the problem.
I have a 95 Windstar. Dont know about newer models but in 1995 transmission codes were not trapped by the computer. The light had to be flashing at the time of diagnosis. A flashing OD light is an indication of a problem. The transmission has 11 different sensors on it. If a sensor goes bad a problem may be felt immediately only at certain speeds or not at all depending on which sensor went bad. This
Quote Originally posted by Raoul This was a tough problem to figure out for my van because like many of you when I shut it down the light stopped blinking and all the dealer could do was shrug his shoulders. Thats because that dealer is stupid. The code remains in memory for about a month after the light stops flashing.
Quote Originally posted by jpdadeo Raoul what was the function of the sensor they replaced Nothing was wrong with the transmission itself right The van wouldnt shift. I was running 5000 RPM and doing 30 mph on level ground. The OD light was blinking. It was flatbedded to the dealer. When it was unloaded and started it ran fine no light. This happened twice. The second time I limped home and the next
yes i do believe it would be masking a bigger problem ive owned two sephias and with both of them the tranny went at around 120kms. the early symptoms were the flashing of the od light then the od light and flashing CEL then blown tranny
trannytransmission if the od light is flashing theres a code in the system usually this is accompanied by a check engine light but sometimes its not.
It will NOT IN ANYWAY HARM YOUR CAR TO CLEAR THE CODES. If there is a problem it will come right back blinking. Or stay off if it was just a quick fault sometiems does happen. Do as you said remove the battery cable try to start it turn everything on then back off reinstall start car take it for a spin. Let it idle for a few minutes before driving. If it starts blinking again get it scanned. Autozone and advanced does it free except in CA.
