overdrive light flashing


Asked by minnow Apr 27, 2007 at 08:30 PM about the 1992 Ford F-250

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The overdrive light is flashing off and transmission is changing hard what could this be?

1 Answer


Hello minnow-- Often I suspect that a flashing warning light could be a false alarm, but the hard shifting that you feel indicates that you do have a transmission problem. You better take it to a transmission specialist for a look. Your problem could be as simple as low transission fluid, but I would suggest a complete diagnosis from a pro. Good luck from Bovan.
