If the ABS light is on, it quite possible that the computer will not allow the transmission to shift into OD until the problem is repaired. Go to a good repair shop or your nearest dealer.
The overdrive light will be off when the overdrive switch is pushed in. If the light flashes then that's a trouble shooting code.
Overdrive switch is located on the gear shift stick, just below the handle. You could toggle with your right thumb to see if the O/D light comes on when pressed.
Take it in. There is either a problem with your transmission or with the overdrive switch itself. Overdrive switch should be a lot cheaper to fix. I'm assuming the light not only goes on, but the overdrive physically turns off as well when the light is on.
I have a 1996 Prizm LSI and the OD switch is a small round button on the side of the shift lever. You could have accidentally switched it off and that is why you get the light.
You will have to remove the instrument cluster. This may be an LED that should never have failed.
There is no separate switch for it. Pushing the light switch will defeat the dome and courtesy lamps.
Usually on the dash to the right of the steering wheel.
On the brake pedal assembly.
Chances are that the overdrive solenoid (forgive my spelling) inside the transmission needs replaced. Not a job for the light-hearted.
On the upper dash right of the steering wheel next to the overdrive (OD) switch
Overdrive on is the normally allowed position , if the overdrive switch is pushed that is located on the end of the gearshift lever the word OFF is supposed to light up
Your overdrive light could be faulty. You should check your fused and replace the one associated with the overdraft button.
Overdrive ( basically the 4th gear in your 4 speed automatic transmission ) It allows you to drive on the highway / freeway with the engine running at lower RPM's . The engine is quieter and will get better gas mileage The O/D OFF light will come on in your dash if the switch on the end of your gear selector lever is pushed . Pushing the switch again will allow the overdrive to be used , as will shutting off the vehicle and the next time it is started the overdrive is allowed which is the normal position
Overdrive is the normally allowed position so you don't see the light on If you turn OFF the overdrive , the overdrive off light will light up or if there is a problem the overdrive off light will flash
Normally the overdrive is allowed , so the overdrive OFF light does not light up When the overdrive is switched off , the overdrive OFF light will light up to let you know that the overdrive has been switched off
It probably means that the OverDrive is turned off. There is usually a switch somewhere for the driver to control the OverDrive.
if their is no slipping or any other transmission issues and it is just only the loss of overdrive try replacing the brake light switch
The OD light on dash stands for Overdrive. There is a button (usually) on the end of the turn signal lever. Some cars the button or switch is on the dash. If you push the button/switch the light will change to OD or OD on (may even go out) then you will be in overdrive. Being in overdrive is good except for steep hills or pulling a heavy load.
The light indicates that Overdrive is off. The overdrive solenoid on the transmission has to be energised to allow the transmission to shift into 4th gear There are 4 common failures. Most likely first; * Bad Relay - The solder on the circuit board cracks. - open it and re-solder * Bad wiring * ** - Broken at the switch lights the light ** - Broken at the solenoid does not light the light * Bad switch on the shift lever * Bad solenoid Good Luck
Even after pushing the overdrive cancel button again ? to allow the overdrive feature On my Ford Explorer with the column shift automatic , the overdrive switch is on the end of the gear selector lever
Brake light switch needs adjusting or replacing. It is too sensitive.
When it has been pressed and the light is on, the transmission is limited to 3rd gear.
Stop light switches are mounted on the brake pedal lever, typically.
overdrive light keeps flashing
The overdrive is "ON" when the light is "OFF". Notice the light for the overdrive has a slash through it.
