Never heard of anyone doing it. It is possible t relocate the overdrive button, but not bypass it. When tarted the transmission has the overdrive on in default mode you can turn t off with the button but once you shut the car off and turn it back on the overdrive will be on again. On my B&M shifter i drilled a small hole in the side of the plastic base and mounted the button there works like a charm.

The button does not switch from Overdrive to Automatic. The button just turns the overdrive off. Overdrive is not a separate drive system as your question implies. Normally you leave the car in overdrive mode. That way the transmission shifts into overdrive at highway speeds, thus saving fuel. If you are saying the transmission is stuck in overdrive and it will not disengage then seek out a A/T professional.
