I believe you have more then one issue is going on here
1- heat only heat I would suspect blend door motor (do u hear clicking when switching from hot to cold and vise versa)
2- OD light flashing suspect tranny issue ,scan for tranny codes
3- check speed sensor

need manual CHECK IT @

Thanks for the reply. I discovered the problem through the archives here and found it to be the brake pressure switch was leaking and the brake fluid had dripped down onto the wire harness thus shorting out the #10 fuse. I failed to mention that the vehicle was also losing brake fluid thinking that this was a seperate problem all together. Now I'm dealing with another issue involving a miss. I changed spark plugs also and now it won't idle. I think I may have a bad spark plug wire.
