The OD off light in my 01 started flashing it would slip when starting off but when it wasn't flashing it shifted fine. The light flashes to warn of a problem most ignore it until like your friend they strip a gear and a rebuild is needed. With it shifting hard could just be a shift selinoid but regardless the cause will be cheaper to fix than the effect. A TC is cheaper than a rebuild

When th od light is flashing, the computer raises the trans hydralic pressure to keep the trans from slipping, this causes hard shifts. Find out why the od light is flashing, it has a code.

I agree found out what the code is.... maybe just a sensor or solenoid?

Thats why the light is there to tell you for a problem so to speak..
