Owners of vehicles that have automatic transmissions typically believe that a blinking or flashing light associated with a symbol or icon on the dashboard indicates a problem with a specific part. Yet, two of these lights – check engine and over drive – can also indicate a problem with the transmission.
The transmission works with your vehicle’s engine and the over drive feature to switch gears and increase, maintain, and decrease speeds. If either of these lights starts blinking, it’s time to have a professional transmission technician inspect your vehicle. The most common causes of flashing dashboard lights are electrical disruptions, sensor failure, and transmission overheating and slippage.
