It just means you probably don't have overdrive, but it should not prevent you from driving it. It could just be a bad electrical connection.

Did you turn the overdrive off? Sometimes they have a switch on the shifter that you can easily miss and press it accidentally.

This is a bad answer. There would be no overdrive light if the car was not equipped with overdrive. And if you meant that the flashing light simply means the OD is not engaged (turned on) then, that is a problem as well., The transmission wil be reving to high, unnecessarilly and will cause excessive transmission temperatures, causing other problems.

My o/d off light started flashing 25,000 miles ago. My mechanic replaced one of the oxygen sensors and it stopped. Charged me $80 bucks....... Now my car has 318,000 miles!

The flashing OD light is like the CEL (Check Engine Light) in the instrument panel and means there is an electronic code that needs to be read to help figure out what/where the problem lies... but there a problem somewhere in the system.

This is what you accidentally pressed probably. This is from the 626 2002 manual but it is probably the same thing.
