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.

Is it dangerous when the OD off light is on?

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.

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.
