Probably because of the missing insulation from the wire leading from the solonoid on the transmission, causing the bare wire to contact a metal surface, thus creating a short circuit and blowing the fuse.

Your 1989 dodge ram d250 van will not shift into overdrive what should you check?

Overdrive should be ran by electrical ,so check your fuses . If that's not it check wiring that runs to transmission.You will have to get under the vehicle . There is an electrical switch that shifts the trans into overdrive , that is your next step . If you have a owners manual in the glove box it should tell you which fuse runs the overdrive circuit .Hope this helps . Rick

If it was a manual trans it was a five speed. If it was an auot then it was a three speed with an electronic overdrive. So with the electronic overdrive it was a four speed trans but the overdrive failed frequently and was disabled by many owners.
