Re: econ light flashing

Your transmission is going into limp home mode. Does it only do it if you are giving it a hard time on hot days? It will do that when it overheats and is trying to cool down. If it is going into limp home mode under normal driving you have a problem in the trans. Try getting any fault codes out of it and let us know how you go.
