Question about 1999 Toyota Camry
The light, at the bottom of gear shift light area of dash, came on . It says o/d off. Have no idea of what it means.
There is a small button on the gear shifter. This is the OverDrive switch. When the button is depressed "IN", the overdrive system is active, and the light on the dash is off. When the button is OUT, the overdrive system is de-activated, and the light on the dash is illuminated. The OverDrive is basically the final shift of the transmission, which gives you maximum fuel economy. When the light on the dash is ON, the OD is "OFF", the transmission will not make its final shift, and will lower your fuel economy. It is best to leave the button IN, and have the OD system active. Hope this helps, and Thanks for Choosing FixYa. The graciousness of a "FixYa" rating for my solution would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for allowing me to help you with your issue.

Your shifter is a column shifter, not a floor shifter, right? Is the headlight switch mounted on the steering column? If so, then this "combination switch" may be the problem. If not, start looking for loose wires, especially ground wires, around the steering column area and the headlight switch area.
It would also be a good idea to get access to a wire diagram from a factory repair manual and find out if GM had any Technical Service Bulletins addressing this problem. If I get a chance, I will ask around and see if any of my co-workers ever heard of this problem.
