put the trans in D not OD. you can also hold the trans in any gear as long as you like (red line if you want) by down shifting right after the transmission upshifts. it's a cool trick if you want to accelerate really fast, but becareful or you could blow your engine!
What was said above is a bad idea. First off the Computer can shift faster than you can do so manually therfor there is no real point in doing so. If you dont think its true go try it at a 1/4 drag strip. Second off its really bad on the trans and engine and will prematurely wairing it out.

First the gear could be out. The other issue could be with the linkage itself in the transmission thus it won't go into overdrive.
Most likely it is the Ignition Control Module.
