that light means trans slip or the torque converter isn lockin up right one of the two or both, usually means its done n you need a rebuild

Not the case in my situation..

Strokn'it, does it seem like its holding the RPM's way longer than it should? Had an issue a few months ago where my speedo stopped working and my abs light came on. Later that night my OD light started blinking and the truck would hold RPMs way too long and would shift super hard when it finally shifted. Ended up doing some research and the ABS sensor/speed sensor on the rear axle went bad. 21 bucks later works fine. That was on a 97 f250 PSD.

I would start with that sensor.. It is located on the top of the rear end and held in by a 14mm bolt.. Unbolt and unhook connector and look at the sensor.. Mine was covered in grime that caused it to not work. Cost like 21 bucks and fixed my problem.

Your welcome.. I thought I blew my tranny too when it happened to me. Hope this is the problem. Let us know if its not and well figure something else out. Also have you checked your fluid in that beast yet? Not trying to disrespect your intillect, but I know in my wife old rig when the tranny fluid got low it shifted REAL hard. Another thing you could check.
