Over Drive light keeps flashing?

Hello all, I was wondering if someone could help me out. My Over Drive light keeps flashing, and I was wondering if this could just be a quick fix, or something serious. The overdrive still works and all, It's just the light always flashes. I have a 98 Mustang, with a V6 if that makes any difference.
Thanks

Re: Over Drive light keeps flashing?

It could be the wire that controls your O/D button. If it is pulled loose or cut or severed that could cause the light to turn on and off. I would check that wire that connects the button, that's an easier fix that shouldn't be overlooked. I'd start there.

Worst case scenario is (and what I'm leaning towards since it's working intermittenly) that something electronically controlled within the transmissinon is faulty. It is a broad problem that uses the O/D light to red flag an issue.

I'd pull a code to get an idea. First check over the O/D wiring and make sure it's not the cause...if its fine, I'd pull a code to see what exactly is the issue.

usually with a flashing light it means something is wrong with the transmission, you should get it checked (but make sure you dont pay a ton without research into what they tell you or get second/third opinions)

I think it might be a lose/unplugged wire, Because under my dash there's an unplugged wire that I haven't really tried hooking up yet. I'll have to try that sometime soon

Yah definitely look into that wire. It's much better to check the smaller things like that and solve the problem rather than spend money on unecessary things.
