Why does my O/D light blink when I drive?
It indicates a problem with the transmission. It's similar to the "check engine" light. Get the codes read to determine the cause. It could be something simple like a speed sensor or something more important. The one thing you don't want to do is ignore it. The light could be indicating a problem that could destroy the transmission.
My 2003 explorer v6 had the same problem about two years ago. It was intermintent. Called my tranny guy I have known since high school and he told me when he happens again, do not shut off the engine and bring it directly to him. He plugged in the reader under the dash. Walked into the shop, cam back with an electronic piece which attaches to the tranny and I was off again in ten minutes. The bill was fifty bucks. He told me the name of the device, but I forgot. He did state it is electronic and is attached to the tranny.
