    Default O/D Lights Keeps Blinking - Vitz 99

    I have a VITZ 1999 model and been using it for quite a long time both on Petrol & CNG.

    I have been facing this issue for like last 2,3 years now due to which i cant take my car on motorway. The issue is that suddenly O/D light starts blinking and when its blinking, car doesn't change the gear up to 5th, it keeps stuck in 4th and behaves like if O/D mode is working.

    I have got it checked on a couple of computers but no error code was appeared and i am literally fed-up of the issue. Any help ?

    1) the car you have never came in 5-speed automatic tranny. Now please dont tell me your car is equipped with a transmission of other car ot that your car is special. Kindly take sometime out and collect some knowledge about the car you drive.
    2) you really need to learn how to talk to somebody on a public forum.
    Cheers.

    my apologies if my comment made you feel bad..

    that's really strange and honestly i didn't know it before.. thanks for the info ... having said that if think yellow o/d light starts blinking, my car doesn't go up-to the final gear and i have to wait until the blinking light is turned off by itself .. once it does it goes up to the final gear and then car runs smoothly

    o/d blinking is usually a sign of a shift solenoid failure or transmission range switch - its the unit that is sanwiched between the transmission and the shifter arm where the shift cable attaches.

    Run a scan and you will find the problem.

    When you have this problem the transmission will only work in 2-3 and have 1 shift only, in normal working its three shifts - 1 to 2, 2 to 3 and 3 to 4 - thats final gear. TCC lockup also occurs after its in final gear.
