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.

Using overdrive in on a vehicle?

Overdrive is the highest ratio gear in a vehicles transmission. It alows the car to travel at highway speeds and still keep engine speed low. In automatics it is used automatically, however you can push the button that says "overdrive" and it will turn the overdrive off. This gives you more power but limits your speed and decreases your fuel economy and longevity of the vehicle.
