There is a little plastic ring at the end of the shifter, unless it has already fallen off, as they like to do. Pop off the ring and grab the button with a pair of pliers and pull it straight out. It is simply plugged in.

When you push the button in, a signal is sent to the PCM to "block" overdrive.When you push the button in, a signal is sent to the PCM to "block" overdrive.
overdrive button is located on gear shifter on automatice transmission.
On a Toyota Camry, the overdrive button will be located either on or near the shifter. It will read 'overdrive' or 'O/D.'
Pressing it will disable the overdrive.
The button does not switch from Overdrive to Automatic. The button just turns the overdrive off. Overdrive is not a separate drive system as your question implies. Normally you leave the car in overdrive mode. That way the transmission shifts into overdrive at highway speeds, thus saving fuel. If you are saying the transmission is stuck in overdrive and it will not disengage then seek out a A/T professional.
Push in the overdrive button(located on the gear shift knob - below the shifter button).
OD means Overdrive. The light is on because you have disengaged the Overdrive. The button is on the shift lever on the side. Push that button to engage the overdrive.
On a 1998 Ford Taurus ; On the column shift the overdrive button is on the end of the gear shift lever On the console shift the overdrive button is on the drivers side of the gear selector lever below the button you have to press to shift out of PARK
Cars with automatic transmissions can sometimes have an overdrive lockout mode, hence the OD light. Most often overdrive is left on for normal day to day driving. Overdrive can be locked out while driving through mills or over a mountain pass and gives the driver better engine performance by eliminating the use of the overdrive gear. If the light is on, overdrive is locked out which will cause the engine to run at a higher rpm rate at highway speeds. If you drive for long period of time at highway speeds the engine may overheat or have a catastrophic failure. Also keep in mind, if the engine is working harder so is the transmission! If the lockout switch or button is malfunctioning and you can't turn the overdrive back on, it should be checked out by your mechanic.
Typically Overdrive is engaged when cruising, when the car is in top gear. Whether the activation button is on the dash, or on the gear selector, makes little difference to how the Overdrive system works.
it is for more power on the road
It means that the overdrive is turned off. most likely someone hit the overdrive button by mistake or pushed the button while using the vehicle to tow and never pushed the button again to turn overdrive back on. On most cars the button is at the end of the shift handle.
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
bad fuse or bad switch

The button turns the Overdrive on and off. Leave it on unless you are towing something.
On your gear stick there is a button. This is the overdrive. Press it again and the OD (overdrive) will come on.
D with the circle around it.
Yes it's the tow button on the shifter
Its near the gear....a button with ECT written on it...
The button is on the side of the shifter normally on the drivers side .
Your vehicle has an overdrive button on the shifter maybe. When you start your vehicle, overdrive is always on. When you tow something, you want the overdrive to be off, otherwise the transmission will run hot and that will lead to bigger problems.
