97' Ford Thunderbird O/D Off light Flashing Sign In

The O/D Off light is flashing (im new to cars i can figure how to fix and repair its i cant figure out whats wrong it have to be told.... not good really) So i looked up what that light even meant and it said its the overdrive light and it keeps flashing on and off while im driving any ideas or should i take it to autozone and have them check the error codes?

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.
