You are watching: 1998 ford ranger overdrive light flashing

General technical & Electrical basic technical and electrical conversation for the Ford Ranger that does no fit in any type of other sub-forum.



occassionally my OD light will flash....if the happens, it only happens after i have been steering on the highway because that a little while....but it doesnt always happen. This is top top a "98 4.0 w/ auto transmissionany principles on what would cause this?would this litter a password i deserve to read on mine scanner?
You can shot adjusting the bands. I"m not sure your password scanner will aid you out. If anything it will come up v a slipping code.I think her in because that a new/rebuild trans.

Not necessarily! The PCM will pilgrimage a flashing OD light if that detects a ns of signal
from one of two people the vehicle Speed Sensor or the Output shaft Speed sensor. Dan I"d inspect both the those sensors, then inspect their signals at the PCM. I"d recommend doing this prior to adjusting the bands or rebuilding anything.
i had this occur to...i woke up went to school it walk this every the method there and all the way home yet the following time ns drove that which was that night it had stopped and hasnt excellent it since so i would additionally like to recognize what u find out after resolving urs
don"t mean to high-jack the thread, but mine walk this too, and also when it would certainly shift, that felt favor a huge hammer hitting the earlier of mine car???? Hope that made sense, reason shifting tough was in not way an excellent enough, it to be shifting like it to be trying to offer me whip-lash"01 4.0L leaf Auto.

This confirms the the PCM is not receiving a signal to regulate torque converter lock-up. This very same signal is supplied for shift points and transition solenoid pressure, for this reason you"re having a fail in that signal. It"s one of two people the sensor (likely) or the wires (unlikely).
DUDE.........samething happened to me, and I shed fourth and fifth gear (Overdrive) . Gain it checked out soon !!! i took mine come a shop and they hooked it up to a computer and it said shed the two top gears. Once you shed it deserve to you view the distinction in rpms to rate ?? together I did..... I lost mine in SC and also Im here in NC well.. I can only go 66mph there is no blowing the rpms out the window.... Together mine go the samething together I drive behind my truck as we took it come the shop(dad drove it ) as soon as it go hit fourth (I might hear that ),the whole back end looked as if a 500lb man jumped in the earlier or hydrulics (SP ) one
it certainly affects the shift points for me too....when its on the changing isnt smooth in ~ all, for this reason you may be right about the VSSid it is in surprised if the tranny was shot already, the van only has actually 70k ~ above it....but i guess it could happen
the an initial thing you need to do is have actually the code(s) pulled. Then go from there.dont change anything, dont examine anything, dont change anything, get the codes.
alright so ns picked up the ABS sensor (that replaced the VSS after 97) to be $19, therefore if it no work, that caresif it ever stops freakin rain ill acquire out to download it and also let everyone recognize what the outcome the meantime, anyone ever replaced among these? any type of tricky components i must be aware of? from analysis haynes it sounds pretty straightforward
Hey Dan,You"re Ranger is 4wd right? If it is, is"nt over there a speed sensor ~ above the rear of yur transfer case. I don"t have actually this car but ns think I"ve viewed it over there before. Just trying to help. I would run the password though. Later.Allen
i changed the sensor in the behind didnt helplight didnt come on immediately, yet it came on after about 6 miles of highway driving. Back to flashing light and also sledgehammer shift pointsoh, and no codes are being throwncould this have something to execute with faulty wheel sensors?
you require a scanner that have the right to read infection codes.if the irradiate is flashing then there is codes stored
got itdoes anyone recognize if autozone deserve to pull tranny codes? or is the a dealer/mechanic type of operation
i understand mine autozone and advanced auto roughly me could not. I had actually to carry mine come a tranny shop because that them to traction them i assumed he stated the port was behind the ash tray??? IDK i never ever looked and it was prior to he actualy scanned it. Yet it to be for a diffrent reason.

guys, update....i disconnected the battery for 30 mins to reset everything and clear all codesi went because that a 25 mile drive, averaging 60-80mph, and also the irradiate did not come on, all shift points to be smooth, and overdrive was workingim not certain why that seemed to help, but the brand-new sensor and also resetting everything seems to have fixed the the very least for now
The OD turn off light have the right to come on because that anything regarded the trans. After acquiring the underside that my explorer really wet, the light was set off by among the speed sensors shedding signal. Once it dried out, the irradiate went away. You should probably inspect the condition of your trans fluid if you are getting the light though. I think the light deserve to come top top if the infectious diseases world fashion is getting too hot or there is too lot slipping. Could be time for a readjust and a pan drop.
i just acquired my trans liquid changed about 100 miles ago....and there is just 70k on the truck so again, if there is any type of kind of real tranny damages id be surprised. If it come on again ill take it come the dealerfreakin computers, imo
