Hello, this is a 1995 ford bronco? f series? What engine and transmission is in the truck? Since the od light flashes, have you run a test for codes with a scan tool?

Hello, do you need more help with this concern?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I still want to tackle this problem. My truck is a F150 with a 5.8l. I have not retrieved any codes. I don't know how many miles on the transmission. At least 120k.

Ok, since the od lamp is flashing, a check for codes with a scan tool will need to be done to find out what transmission codes are stored. It could be an issue with a solenoid body or something else. Once you know what codes are stored will help pinpoint what direction needs to be followed to help fix this concern.
