Did it continuously flash, or did it go away?

I dont know what to do..... Tranny seemed to shift like normal before, during, after. I havnt driven the car since, as it is not a daily driver.

the flashing sounds like it might be sending a code out as if to say what the error is but this may be a stretch.

I drove the car for about 45 mins last night.... no lights came up, and the tranny shifted fine. I didnt get on it too hard at all, pretty much normal driving. It also wasnt nearly as hot as it was on Saturday when the light started flashing.... I dont know. The car seemed to run VERY strong. It was night time, and cool though......

On my family's van it flashed when the van was first turned on. Sometimes when we got on the highway and it reached the OD gear, it would either flash or stay lit. But, under normal driving conditions the light would occasionally flash for a few minutes after we started her up and then would turn off. It all ended about 500 miles later when all the transmission seals let go and dropped fluid till it was empty. Those transmissions on the mid to late 90s Windstars were known to be problematic though and I am sure if any of the components have been carried over to the new Mustangs transmissions (which I don't think they have) they have fixed the issue, BUT I would get it to a dealership SOON to have it checked. Hopefully its just a wiring issue and maybe some condensation is causing the light to come on under certain weather conditions. Good luck and report back when you find out what's going on!
