That flashing light is to your trans, what the CEL is to the engine.

A good scanner will tell you what code is there...

Sorry to tell you, but most likely your torque converter on the way out. Anytime you get a flashing OD light, it's not good.

It's not always a tranny going out. Not long ago, my BIL had the wiring harness going to the tranny shorting out it would intermittently flash the od light. He had a shop replace the harness and has been good as gold ever since.

Best advice I have ever received on these trucks is don't jump to conclusions. Always scan it with a GOOD scanner first before throwing parts at it.
