Hello my name isXXXXX usually when this happens the TFT, transmission fluid temp sensor, goes electrically open causing the OD light to flash and the shifts to become a little firmer. The sensor is about 30 dollars, and you drop the trans pan and it is mounted into the valve body, remove the connector, quarter turn the sensor and it pulls right out. Any more questions just ask, Thanks Steve W
