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.
You mean OD off. That is overdrive off. If it stays on all the time, you need to have the trans computer checked for codes.
If the light says off then your overdrive is turned off, push the button again and the light will turn off and overdrive will be on again.
If there is an OD off light on the dash, overdrive is turned off.
"Over Drive Off"
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.
Normally the overdrive is allowed so you will not see the light If you have shut off the overdrive the O/D OFF light will be lit up in your dash

od light is the overdrive unit on the transmission. If you drive on the freeway you should have the overdrive unit on, on the streets the unit should be off. The light usually doesn't have anything to do with overheating. I would look for some other issue.
Od is usually of. You only use it when traveling at high speed. =========================================================== Overdrive is the normally allowed position The O/D OFF light in your dash comes on if you have switched the overdrive off It won't shift into overdrive ( top gear ) until the speed is higher anyway , such as on the highway or freeway
The light actually reads 'OD' off and shows you have turned off the Over Drive for the automatic transmission. (The button on the side of the shift). This will result in faster acceleration and lower lower gas mileage)
That's the overdrive off light
I have a 2002 F350 and my OD light came on, that was 3 transmissions ago... by default the fords are in OD, you have to turn it off when towing. Never tow without turning the OD off first. My experience was that the trans was burned up, and the light kept flashing, or You might be exceeding the speed for being in OD.

A malfunction has been detected , have it checked out
The O/D OFF light in your dash indicates that the OVERDRIVE on your transaxle ( transmission ) has been switched off ( you don't mention which year this is , but if the light is flashing that would indicate that a problem has been detected )
OD= Overdrive. There will be a switch to engage/disengage the OD located on the shifter, or on the console in close proximity to the shift lever. It should even have a marking on it.
sounds like you need to replace the OD switch in the shifter.
The od light means that the over-drive is off. Pushing the little button on the shifter selector will turn it on (when the dummy light is not on) and off (when the dummy light is lit).
If "OD Off" is lit, then your overdrive is off.
