There is a push button on the end of your automatic shift lever. Pushing it in causes the Overdrive to turn on and off.

On a 1995 Ford Explorer : Overdrive is the normally allowed position Only if you switch overdrive off with the transmission control switch on the end of your gear selector lever ( P R N etcetera ) will you see the O/D OFF light lit up in your gauge cluster My 1995 Ford Explorer XLT has to be travelling around 50 MPH before it shifts into overdrive ( but I have the trailer towing package with 3.73 gears )

My 1995 Ford Explorer 4.0 liter will shift into overdrive at 50 MPH ( I don't know if that has anything to do with having 3.73 gears with my trailer towing package )

Starting with the 1995 model year of the Ford Explorer the AUTOMATIC transmission was ELECTRONICALLY controlled ( so the answer would be no )

Overdrive is the normally allowed position . It won't shift into overdrive until the speed is faster anyway . On my 1995 Ford Explorer it doesn't shift into overdrive until I'm travelling about 50 miles per hour ( if you are towing or driving in hilly country where the transmission is constantly downshifting then you don't use overdrive )

If you don't want the transmission to shift into overdrive ( such as when towing a trailer , or driving in hilly country where the transmission is constantly shifting between drive and overdrive ) push the button on the end of the gearsfift selector ( P R N etcetera ) and the O/D OFF light will appear in your dash . Overdrive is the normally allowed position , but on my 1995 Ford Explorer doesn't shift into overdrive until I'm going around 50 Miles Per Hour

If the overdrive switch is turned off then the car will not go into overdrive. As it is not in overdrive, then it will not downshift out of overdrive as it normally would. It also will not shift to 3rd gear above a certain factory preset speed. Turn th overdrive on and see if it operates normally.

If this is an automatic transmission on your 2001 Ford Explorer Sport : Overdrive is the normally allowed position It won't shift into overdrive ( " top gear " ) until the speed is higher such as on the highway / freeway ( my 1995 Ford Explorer XLT is around 50 MPH / 80 KPH before it will show a decrease in engine RPM on the tachometer ) If you don't want it to shift into overdrive then use the switch on the end of your gear selector lever ( P R N etcetera ) and then O/D OFF will light up in your gauge cluster ( when your towing something or if you are driving in hilly country and the transmission is constantly shifting from overdrive to drive )

Open your drivers door and look for a sticker that shows the original tire size that came on your vehicle and the recommended inflation pressure On your 1995 Ford Explorer XL it was probably P225 / 70 / R15 My 1995 Ford Explorer XLT 4x4 came with P235 / 75 R15 all terrain tires

I believe that 1995 was the last year for a conventional speedometer cable on a Ford Explorer , and then Ford went to an electronic speedometer with a vehicle speed sensor

I had the same problem with my 1995 explorer xls. And everyone told me I needed a new transmission. I got on the Internet and found a solution. When Your overdrive light flashes. You need to see if your tranny has a place on the outside to adjust the bands on the inside. This helped mine no more problems. Hope this helps.

If you don't want the automatic transmission to shift into overdrive, press the button on the end of the gear selector lever. An indicator light will come on in the bottom right corner of your guage cluster displaying O/D OFF
