How do you fix a 1993 Ford Thunderbird that won't go into overdrive?

Note added 7/5/2007: While replacing/rebuilding the transmission should fix the problem, I would get a second opinion. It may be fixed for a whole lot less money, if you are handy. I have fixed a number of transmission problems on my 1994 Thunderbird myself with shift kits, and replacing various solenoids, sensors and switches, etc.

You need to see if there is a little upwards pointing arrow on your Dashboard Cluster. If there is then you need to replace your Overdrive Solenoid.
