2002 Ford Maverick 3 litre V6 auto
Overdrive light flashing

1 points

Problem added: Jun 29, 2011 (9 years ago)
The overdrive light flashes steadily on and off after the car has been driving for some time under load (eg after 1 hour of towing a horse box at 50mph).
The flashing light is not there the following day, tt does not happen under any other circumstances.
The manual states its an indication of a gearbox fault, however it still appears to work fine with or without the flashing light.
Does anyone know what the fault could be?
