O/D Light Flashing

On my way to work this morning the O/D light start flashing and the shifts became odd. At the next light i turn off the iginition and restarted the car and it was gone, and shifting was normal again. Anyone have this happen or know why? I hope my trans isn't about to take a **** on me, I just added Zex nitrous kit, and havent even used it yet, getting tuned tomorrow. It would be a ***** if i have to take all that off to go in to the dealer, cause even though i havent used it I know they will blame everyting on it if something is wrong.

If it is an Auto, on the side of the shift lever is a button that turns off the O/D for city driving (light to light), I hit it by mistake when I first got my 05 and just read the owners manual.

I know about the button. My O/D light was actually flashing on and off pushing the button wouldn't do anything. Ive searched this and other forums and on one ocation the person said the dealer jsut reset the comp and it was fine the other never said what caused it. I just took the car for a drive everyhting seems fine now, i rode it hard for a couple accels and everything is normal so far.

Got this off another Ford Forum.. for what it's worth:
A. The flashing OD light indicates there is a problem in the transmission control system. When the Transmission Control Unit detects a malfunction it will flash the OD light and store a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) in the computer. You will need to have a Ford Dealer pull the codes and determine exactly what is wrong.
I wish I could be more specific, but there are about 120 different reasons for the flashing OD light.

If it happens again, I would definitely get it into a Ford service Center. You might call some other Ford service centers, to see if you can find someone thats sympathetic to your juice situation ! It might save yanking the juice! to get checked out!.......Good Luck !

I have an xcal tuner and I checked for a dtc but there were none. Im hoping it was just a glitch. If there is a tranny issue im sure I will find out tomorrow when i get it tuned for the juice. Could mean time to upgrade the tranny sooner than planned.

The SCT can't read or see all trans codes. I had a transmission repair shop read mine and clear it. I was sure it was tune related and had the tuner correct it

Ok Zipper, I managed to read these codes with my predator and reset the error but after a short time back ..... the change seems to work fine, no problems in acceleration, deceleration only delays the climbing gear and off the stop the car if I put the gear in neutral, it seems that the clutch does not disengage .... only in D, 3, 2​​, 1, this problem does not exist in R!! sorry for my english people ;-)

I recommend you have your vehicle diagnosed at your Ford dealer, niko68. Your Service Manager is in the best position to look into this for you. He can check into any warranty, Recalls, or Customer Satisfaction Programs that may apply to your vehicle. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to PM me.
