overdrive light flashed then...

So I was out playn in the snow yesterday and slid my truck into a ditch, after alot of "gunnin" it i was out but i noticed the overdrive light started flashing. So iam think tranny is toast but i drove it back home the light quit flashing and the tranny seems to be shifting and acting fine. I went out this morning to move it out of the way and it didnt have any issues. So iam looking for a new tranny or did i dodge a bullet? also would i be better off flushing it b4 i drive it again I have no idea how many miles are on the fluid that is in there thnaks

A good possability the trans is ok. Ford programmers did not program " get out of ditch codes " into the computer. Won't hurt to service the trans.

I believe it means that the trans is overheating. I had this happen to my plow truck when is was plowing out a state yard not going over 15mph. going back and forth. Noticed it when i pulled out of the yard and the truck would only due 25mph at 2500rpm and not ****. drove it straight to the dealer and the put another trans in it with a bigger trans cooler, thank god it was still under warranty from the last one.
