First thing I recommend is having the transmission scanned for codes - something will be stored there giving you a starting point

Sounds like a blown fuse! I have had the blinking overdrive light problem! My truck would shift really hard and run rough downshifting. I would find one of my 15 amp fuses blown! I would replace fuse and fix problem!

My light keeps flashing on my overdrive and it keeps running rough at idle smooth but when you put it in drive it runs rough don't want to take fuel it's a 2001 Ford f150
