OD light flashing, no fault codes

So my OD light decided to start flashing tonite. Just about a year ago I replaced the solenoid pack (Ford repalcement) along with filter and Amsoil ATF to fill it up.

I hooked up my scanner tontite no codes stored or pending. The OD light will not come on until you get past 50MPH after you shut the vehicle off.

Any ideas what I am looking at when I take it to the dealer on Monday?

I took it to the Ford dealer we bought our last 2 vehicles from today andl it ended up being a slipping torque converter.

Total for the repair ~$1700.
- 550 for the converter
- 215 to rebuild the valvebody
- 175 for trans flush
- 660 for labor

12 month 12K warranty from Ford and 2 days to fix. I would do it myself but for the warranty and labor for me to do it $660 didn't sound bad.

Picked it up last nite finally, since the Manager wanted to drive it all weekend due to slow gear engagement when cold out of park. Guess what went to go to reverse this morning after sitting outside all night, and would not move until I gave it gas so back to the dealer it goes.
