    It's a transmission error code. You probably need it checked out by a tranny shop.

    it is in LIMP MODE
    Your transmission is running at full line pressure
    Flashing OD light means you need to get the codes checked ASAP
    Limp mode is designed to get you to the closest dealer / repair shop
    transmission damage can occur beyond what is already gone wrong if you keep driving it
    Most auto parts stores SHOULD be able to scan the code for you, you are looking for a transmission code or manufacture specific codes so make sure they have the ability to read those

    Ours was doing that. Too long to go into because too frustrated with the Ford dealership.

    We disconnected the battery overnight. Cleared things up. That was nearly 14,000 miles ago.
