the flashing O/D light is like a "check engine" light for the transmission. This is the way that the transmission electronics indicate that there is a problem. Hopefully it will not be expensive....but the only way to know what the code is.....is to go have the codes read.

One not so expensive common failure is the Transmission Range Sensor (TRS).....which sits on top of the transmission. The cable from the shifter connects to it.....and it senses what position that the gear selector is in. There are a lot of contacts inside the TRS....and any one of them can become worn. They do not have to tear apart the transmission to replace it.
