Ok lets get it out of low first. Drive the vehicle in a straight line for ten feet with the selector in low. Now stop and place the trans in neutral and hold the brakes. Now shift to 4 high. It should clunk in. If not then repeat and have someone tap on the shift motor with a hammer while you shift it again. If it still does not come out then suspect the shift motor.
To diagnose the OD flashing concern you need a scan tool. Auto Zone does this for free.
Here are possible problems.
