It probably means that the OverDrive is turned off. There is usually a switch somewhere for the driver to control the OverDrive.
Overdrive is the normally allowed position so you don't see the light on If you turn OFF the overdrive , the overdrive off light will light up or if there is a problem the overdrive off light will flash
Normally the overdrive is allowed , so the overdrive OFF light does not light up When the overdrive is switched off , the overdrive OFF light will light up to let you know that the overdrive has been switched off
overdrive light keeps flashing
The overdrive is "ON" when the light is "OFF". Notice the light for the overdrive has a slash through it.
The overdrive light will be off when the overdrive switch is pushed in. If the light flashes then that's a trouble shooting code.
The light indicates that Overdrive is off. The overdrive solenoid on the transmission has to be energised to allow the transmission to shift into 4th gear There are 4 common failures. Most likely first; * Bad Relay - The solder on the circuit board cracks. - open it and re-solder * Bad wiring * ** - Broken at the switch lights the light ** - Broken at the solenoid does not light the light * Bad switch on the shift lever * Bad solenoid Good Luck
keep the overdrive shaft button pressed, there is a panel light called "O/D" that should light indicating the overdrive is OFF. In that case make sure the light is OFF which means overdrive is ON.
The black plastic frame surrounding this panel, which includes the ventilation holes, can probably be pulled out. This provides access to the back of the panel where the light bulb is situated. After replacing the bulb, the frame can simply be pushed back on. This method applies to a 1993 Mitsubishi Space Runner, but can very probably be used for a 1995 Eagle Summit wagon.
Light being on means overdrive is inactive
if you have overdrive in that car it means that your about to go into overdrive
