overdrive light blinking

My overdrive light recently started blinking. I also noticed my trans temp which has never got above 160 went up to 200. Any ideals? I was told the trans was rebuilt last year.

2007 crewcab, 4x4, 6.0L PSD, auto, not sure on gears yet, all stock other than tint and window shades. Plans are tube steps, propane injection, and guages.

Its a code, take it to a tranny shop or a dealer to get it read. When the light starts to blink its like a check engine light.

I'll take my superchips program out and that should clear it, but it's still running hot.

I

had a solenoid stick for a split second on mine last year and the light flashed but you have more issues if your temps are up.

yeh that happened to mine and it started shifting with line pressure at the highest psi because i needed a rebuild and it kept slipping, so it shifted really hard at all times to try to save the tranny. so i got a rebuild with a ton of upgrade parts, about 2200$

Don't quote me, but I believe someone was saying that when the OD light starts blinking, the trans ups the line pressure to compensate for any problems, as I say, I don't remember who said it, so I don't know how accurate that is.

I do not reccomend anyone doing this. If the light comes on it means there is a problem and it needs to be checked. I did the same thing and put it off, it ended up causing me to completley changing the tranny. The code was something to do with the tranny slipping and a connection on the tranny came unpluged. Which caused it to burn up.
