It means you have an electronic transmission control problem. Quite possibly a shift solenoid in the transmission. It will be impossible to determine a fix until the system is scanned and diagnosed to find out what is wrong. It could be your vehicle speed sensor.

What can be wrong if you can't get the overdrive to come off?

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.

Engline immobilizer indicator light keeps flashing continually when the key is out How do you fix it?

The Engine Immobilizer Indicator Light is supposed to flash continually when your key is removed from the ignition because it is part of the security/alarm system. The engine immobilizer is the " kill switch " that will not allow the engine to be started without your key which has a microchip in the top ( the black part of the key ). When the EII Light is flashing it indicates that that part of the alarm system is active and working. If the light does not blink when key is removed THEN it needs to be fixed.
