when you push the overdrive button the green light is letting

you know that the overdrive is "off". Therefore you are driving in

a lower gear. This is a good thing if you are towing a trailer or

maybe going up a hill or bridge. It keeps you from burning up your

transmission, but otherwise if your just driving normal then

overdrive needs to be "on" which is more fuel efficient by allowing

you to switch into a higher gear.
