That is the equivalent of the Check Engine Light but it is for a transmission fault. You will need to get the trouble code pulled before you can track down the problem.

Check to see if the power fuse to the Data Link Connector is blown. It is shared by the cigarette lighter and I believe it is #17 in the dash fuse panel.

There are MANY possible transmission trouble codes that could be stored when the O/D light is flashing. What happened to one vehicle may have absolutely nothing at all to do with what might be wrong with another. Before deciding in advance what the problem is, the trouble code(s) should be pulled.
