Copy

you push the button at the end of the gearshift to engage it, its for towing vehicles or carrying a good size load

I think you have it backwards. It is by default in overdrive. Pushing the button on the end of the gear selector will disable overdrive. You would want to disable it to pull heavy loads or if you are in a hilly area, especially at lower speeds.
