You cant really. I have a 1996 Mercury Villager LS 3.0L. The only thing that you notice is a bit less shakyness when shifting (automatic trans). Also the take off will be more smooth and you will feel like you are gettin more power at high speeds or a WOT (wide open throttle). If you mean physically in overdrive at the shifter, you can't. The quadrant is marked with only "D", "2" and, "1". You must assume that it will shift into overdrive when all conditions are met and the computer allows the trans to shift. If you mean how do you know when the trans has shifted into overdrive, there are two ways. First, count the shifts. For overdrive, there will be three shifts. Or, if yours is equiped with a tachometer, watch it for the shift points.

On a 1997 Ford Expedition : It may not shift into overdrive until you are travelling around 50 MPH (80 Km/H) and you will see the RPM on the tachometer drop. * If the overdrive has been SWITCHED OFF using the switch on the end of the gearshift lever, then OFF will light up near the end of the gearshift lever.

Does a pressed OD button on a Ford Contour mean overdrive is on I know this is dumb but my OD Off light went out long ago and I am in an argument with a friend about it?

When the overdrive button is pushed, the overdrive is shut OFF. ======================================================= But if you push the button again the overdrive is allowed , so it would be ON So , if you are on the highway or freeway where the speed is higher just look at the RPM on your tachometer to tell if you are in overdrive because the RPM will be lower
