Over drive not working properly

OK I just got my 1997 7.3 put back together and found another problem today. When I went to drive it I noticed that my overdrive was not working right. It would drive fine with the OD on. When I shut the OD off it would drive fine for a couple of minutes but would shut it self off and the button would not work anymore. Drining down the highway it would turn it self off and on. I cleared all the codes I found with my programer but that did not fix the problem. I checked ATF level and it was fine too. The ATF is good running amsoil synthetic and only have about 2K on the ATF. Could I have an switch going bad or am I looking at a major Trannie issue?
