It could be telling you to shift into overdrive or shift out of overdrive....I'm not saying you don't know how to drive ...I have to eliminate the obvious...Also double check trans fluid level...Everytime you shut the engine off and then start it again the trans Has reset itself and overdrive is always off ..If you are heading for a long drive on an interstate hit the overdrive button at around 60 mph ...Or you can use your ear and listen to the shifting of trans and you will know when it is time to shift to overdrive....If you never use overdrive especially when you have needed to ..,it can cause problems as well..but not definitlely....It could have a false code unless you hear a problem in the trans...You can get safety glasses and disconnect neg.battery cable ..,then reconnect cable ....,this will clear all fault codes......Then test drive on highway and use the overdrive switch to see if it sets another flash code...If it does you need to scan it with an OBD SCANNER to read codes....It could possibly be the trans shift solenoid......

    Richard: It seems to me the customer is saying the OD light is flashing, which is a visable warning. The system software uses that light to convey a problem to the driver. The CEL may be on but not necessarily. A flashing OD light indicates an issue with the TCC.

When the Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) isn't engaging or locks in engagement the light flashes a warning...The TCC solenoid may stick due to dirty transmission fluid...If the Check Engine Light
(CEL) is not lit have your transmission fluid changed...If it is lit the code is probably pointing at a defective TCC, Computer (PCM) or the clutch itself... you can take the vehicle to an auto parts store and have them read and define the trouble code for free...saailer

If the OD light is flashing then you have faults, it maybe the scan tool can't read the Trans control module codes.

JeffMy f250 trans shifts ok one minute then down shifts hard od light is flashing then shift patterns are all over the place.


You may have a bad speed sensor or a bad overdrive soleniod, the first thing to do is have the computer scanned for codes, the codes will point you in the right direction of where the problem is , hope this is helpful.

Sounds like the transmission got overheated. I would not worry if shutting it off and restarting got rid of the fault.
