The overdrive light flashes when the computer sees a system fault and when this happens the computer will set and store a fault code and or codes. In order to know what is causing the light to flash the first thing you are going to need to do is to scan the computer system and retrieve the fault code and or codes. If you can get the code and post back with them we can work from there to determine what is causing this.
