Flashing O/d light , steep inclines

I have a 99 Windstar , each time I take it on a long drive where it has to climb steep hills , when the tranny kicks into passing gear the O/D light starts to flash.It stays flashing until I shut van off.When I start travelling again the light will stay off until the first steep hill and then it comes on again. When going downhill the O/D does engauges when I push O/D button.I read a post on here about changing fuse #19, any other suggestions greatly appreciated....thanks

Is the fluid full? Has it been servicrd regularly? Take it to Autozone and see if they pull any codes. There's no charge for that.

Fluid levels are full. Always go to service station and have them checked when traveling.Van is also serviced regularly. Any other suggestions...thanks

Re: Flashing O/d light , steep inclines

Correct me if I'm wrong , but doesn't the o/d flashing light have to be on for the scanner to find problem?It does not stay on, nor will not come back on until I go on the long drive with the steep hills involved. Its been months since I drove that long a distance and the same hills and o/d light only flashes at these times. Just thought someone else may have had same problem.Feel free to make any other suggestions. Thanks......

The light doesn't have to be on.
