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.

Why does white light appear green through green filter?

For the same reason that you call the filter a "green" one.Green light is the only light that's able to pass through the filter, without beingabsorbed by the dye between its sheets of glass. If there's any green light shininginto one side of it, then green light will come out. If there's NO green light enteringone side, then nothing comes out, and the filter appears black.So-called "white light" has ALL colors in it. All of them except green are absorbedby the filter, and only the green comes out the other side.
