Check the overdrive relay switch.

Check O/D switch by all means....but the most common problem is usually the Overdrive Relay. It's located behind the centre vents on your model, replace with EXACTly same part no. .....other similar relays will drive you crazy by disengaging each time you turn engine off - requiring you to remember to click it ON again.
