Flashing "Overdrive is off" on my 1998 Ford Explorer 2 WD 4 door

Asked by May 20, 2014 at 12:12 PM about the 1998 Ford Explorer 4 Dr XLT SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After pulling a "light" trailer for about 60 miles, my "OD is off" light is flashing.  Have pulled this trailer many times in the past.  Check of trans fluid shows full, clear and has no unusual odor. Trans seems to shift normally, but I remember from an earlier posted question that this might indicate PROBLEMS.  I cannot find anything in my Chilton manual on this issue. What's up guys????  Faithfully service trans every 60,000...
\My favorite small working SUV!!!

As per my 99 explorer's owners manual and my 2010 F-150 owners manual: "Do not use overdrive while towing."
