Is the light flasing on the end of the shift lever? Mine will do that when it detects a fault and will go into a "fail safe" mode and shift via pressure instead of electronically and the overdrive light will flash at the end of the shifter.

My 97 F350 just started that yesterday after picking up the holy grail of Christmas trees lol, any suggestions or repair ideas? I was going to disconnect the battery to reset the computer to see if that works.

It is really hard to tell when it doesnt do it all the time, when is the last time the fluid was changed? That is where I would start by having the tranny flushed.

rdhed. correction .. the trans does not shift by pressure and not electronicly when in fail safe mode. The trans is still electronicly shifted but the computer commands higher pressure to prevent slipping
