The flashing light is telling you a transmission problem is present and needs attention. I would have it checked as soon as possible, these trannies are know for failing with just the slightest provocation.

Thanks, I know the light means trouble. I am looking for someone who had similar experience. I believe the second gear clutch pack has failed. I am not sure however. I also don't know if that will cause it to drop out of overdrive, and also make the light flash.
