Blinking light randomization
1996 F250, auto, have had the infamous blinking OD light on the end of the shifter. When it is on, it shifts hard. Taking it to the shop today to pull the codes and I watched the light blink for the last time, then the truck ran great! So now the blinking light is intermittent??? The last time the light started I was headed down a 7% grade at 60mph, no throttle. This morning I tried to limit the hard shifts by starting in 2 and then shifting up to D. The speedo bounces, but only about 3mph when going above 65mph.
It is difficult to put all these seemingly random events in order but:
-Blinking OD light, started with downhill drive
-Bouncing speedo (only 3-5 mph) when at highway speeds
-Light stopped blinking and truck ran great this morning.
