On a Toyota Camry, the overdrive button will be located either on or near the shifter. It will read 'overdrive' or 'O/D.'
yes i have overdrive button
overdrive button is located on gear shifter on automatice transmission.
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.
How do I change out
It's not recommended to use overdrive on a constant base. It stresses too much the engine as well as transmission.
There is no "switch". To cancel overdrive move the gear lever from "D" to "4".
There is an electrical failure in the trans and will have to be checked out by a good trans shop. GoodluckJoe
all the time
There are two, both inside the gearbox
I was told that it is the temp sensor. The car needs to be at 150 degrees. I am working on the same problem.
no you don't have to drive with overdrive on permanently, but you will change gear quicker and less smoothly, also your fuel consumption will increase by as much as 50%.
You have to use it when you are driving in mountain areas where to have high speed is not a good idea. The overdrive function does allow the transmission to switch to higher gears.
on the brake pedal bracket
mabye u need to make a gear adjustment
Its near the gear....a button with ECT written on it...
its on the shift lever of my dx where your thumb hits the lever
Forget the light. Listen to the motor and/or look at the tachometer. When the overdrive is engaged, the motor will run slower at the same speed. The slower the motor runs at any speed, the better gas milage you get.
My friends car did the same exact thing. It could be your transmission sensor. I am not exactly sure what the sensor is called but it has to do with the way it shifts. Overdrive sensor maybe?
Coolant Temp Sensor
That would be the OVERDRIVE selector switch.
It is most likely your oil pressure light if it is red
It allows the car to operate at lower revs making for a smoother drive and better fuel consumption at higher speeds. The gearbox will shift into overdrive itself, so it is always best to have it switched on in normal driving conditions. You only need to switch off the overdrive when you need greater engine braking or are towing a heavy load.
