Default O/D Off light flashes going up steep grades. 2000 Explorer

Hi All

2000 Explorer O/D Off light flashes going up steep grades on 4wheel trails, also happened on steep paved road the other day.

Any thoughts as to what's going on?

Thanks in advance.
Bill

First thing to do is check the fluid level. It could be simply too low causing it to overheat on hills.

Get the codes checked. I'll bet the torque converter clutch is slipping.

Probably no command for TCC lockup on steep hill.

Probably an incorrect gear ratio code.
