Hello, when the overdrive lamp is flashing it will set a code, there is a good chance the scan tool you are using cant read the code because it is a proprietary code meaning, ford owns copyrights to certain transmission codes and only higher end scan tools or dealer style scan tools can read them. Is the truck driving ok and shfiting properly and only the od lamp is flashing
