Hi the od light flashing and the shift indicator being off are usually not related. The shift indicator usually being off is a result of where it attatches to the side of the steering column gets broken. The od light flashing will result in a code being stored inside of the pcm my best advise is to go have the codes read at your local parts store or local ford dealership. Then once we have the code we can go from there on what seems to be causing the problem hope this information helps thanks
