First thing I recommend is having the transmission scanned for codes - something will be stored there giving you a starting point

Sounds like a blown fuse! I have had the blinking overdrive light problem! My truck would shift really hard and run rough downshifting. I would find one of my 15 amp fuses blown! I would replace fuse and fix problem!
