“I have a 1999 expedition that has a leak somewhere on the top on the drivrs side.”
The top (roof) of the car on the driver’s side?
The top of the engine on the driver’s side?
A water leak?
A coolant leak?
An oil leak?
Even though I am not sure I understand where the leak is, or what is leaking, it is clear that you have some serious electrical issues that need to be attended to. Most likely, the leak is affecting your electrical system, but this is not the type of thing that can be traced over the internet. You need to take the car to a competent mechanic, so that he can go over all of the wiring with an electrical meter in order to localize the source of the problem.
I suggest that the only driving you should do is to drive the truck directly to the mechanic. The blinking O/D light indicates an electrical/electronic fault in the transmission’s controller, and continuing to drive the truck like this will result in mechanical damage to the trans. With any luck, resolving the underlying electrical problem will also resolve the transmission problem.
If the vehicle has a remote starter system and/or a security system, that could be the source of the problem–especially if it is an aftermarket system, but that is just a guess. Take the truck to a well-reputed independent mechanic (NOT to Midas, Meineke, Monro, Sears, AAMCO, or any other chain operation). The best place would be a shop that specializes in auto electrical systems, if you have one of those in your area.
Hmmmm…Were those questions too difficult for the OP to answer?
I guess that this post is another one of those “drive-by” questions with no return or response from the OP.
This might be one of the years that had a problem with a leaky windshield seal & rain water dripping on the interior fuse panel. This causes all sorts of electronic crazyiness
AS vDC mentioned hows about some feedback??
