you have a driveline problem. Get a code pulled and you will find out what exactly is causing it. Definatel will pull up a drivetrain code.

Get the codes pulled... could be as simple as one of the 2 or 3 sensors from the tranny to the rear diff.

allot of ythe time the od light flashing if from a speed sensor malfunction. but i would have the codes pulled. it can be from any electronic problem with the vehicle. my moms f150 started flashing when her alternator was getting weak.
