    Hi my name is Alex I have a ford f-350 is showing me the same flashing light but if I try to go on drive or 1st & 2nd gear it will stall or will hessitate to go ,,,but if I go really slow trying no to force the transmision.. it will eventualy go, once I pass the first gear it will eventually run perfectly but again when ever I get to a stop, it is the same story all over again. this is allso in reverse .In neutral and park motor will work perfect. When the light starts blinking and the motor acting up I turn off the truck and restart it back on and will work normal and will run great but out of nothing the light starts blinking if Im in a stop or up hill and the ..just for the records a mechanic replaced the( I do not know the correct name for it but I remember it was somthing like) transmission valve box or something like thatas well as the new oil & filter .. will to end the story fast it did work for a good 6 to 8 monts but here I with the same situation again.. thanks!

    Have some one use a scan tool to retrieve the DTC's. From there we can help. I think Autozone does it for free.

    Sounds like you have a bad trans.

    I had similar issues with my 99 E 250 and my F450. It was the wiring harness both times.
