Welcome to the forum. Yes, you need to have the system scanned for codes. Please post back the exact code number, not the part name they say is bad. The code will be like P07xx (the xx is also numbers.) It may also be a number like a P17xx. We will be waiting for your next post.

The o/d light flashing indicates a problem in the transmission. Your scanner should pull the codes. They are usually in the P07xx range.

I have the OTC Nemesis as a generic and it will pull the codes.
