If you look in your owners manual a flashing O/D off light means the computer has detected a fault with the transmission. Have the car scanned for the code or codes and have the car properly diagnosed to see what the issue is. Could be a sensor to a transmission rebuild.

Your overdrive button/switch needs to be replaced.
