shift light blinking?????need help

every now and then my shift light for my od will start binking. when it does this my trucks shift points become really harsh and very aggrevating. then after a few days it goes away.i have already changed the cps sensor.could it be a bad tranny sensor or is my valve body need to be replaced.
*sorry for the lengthy post*

Mine did that and the trans went. The blinking OD light is like a limp home mode so it wont cause anymore trans damage. I would get it looked at asap

If the light is flashing, you need to get the codes read. Remember not all code readers can read the codes on a PSD. If the light is flashing you have codes in there. When mine started flashing it ended being the tranny, had to save while on deployment. Good luck
