Flashing "No O/D" light

So, more Ford Contour issues.

This morning, I'm going to work, and I have this problem on my '98 Ford Contour, with the "No O/D" button flashing wildly. Now, I don't know where the button might be, but maybe one of you fine folks might.

    I tried looking up pictures on cardomain, but they didn't really have good interior pictures. I would check the left side of the dash, steering wheel, around the shifter, places like that.

    Do you mean there is a light on your dash near the speedometer and such flashing? If it was a button flashing I think you'd know where the button is. >.>

    Also, 'No O/D' sounds like 'No Overdrive', there might be a problem with the transmission. O_o

    The O/D off button will illuminate the light, but not make it flash. Flashing O/D light means the tranny control computer is reading a fault somewhere.

    Might be a chafed wire, an easily replaced sensor, or it might be transmission death. There'll be a code set in your computer, a shop should be able to pull it for you. Be aware that most shops would rather replace the transmission than actually repair it.

    Also, normally a place like AutoZone will pull the codes for free, I believe. If you don't have a repair shop you trust, that is. :)
