The flashing light is telling you that the PCM detects a problem with your transmission. You need to retrieve DTC's from the PCM as soon as possible. It MAY be a quick fix now, but if you keep driving it you could cost yourself the price of a transaxle rebuild. Based on your recent maintenance, it might be something as simple as an incorrectly installed trans filter or incorrect fluid type.
