The overdrive is to help get better fuel milage and performace at speeds above 50 mph, it won't hurt at all leaving it on all the time.

The over drive light should be on at all times when the overdrive button is pressed in. Press the overdrive button to the off position and the light should go off.

What is the second drive gear for


The first one is over drive and the second is drive. It is best to just use overdrive when on the parkway and drive on slower back roads when there is hills and stop and go traffic. Overdrive is a higher gear.

The overdrive lights blinks when I'm driving on the expressway whats that?


The operating system has spotted a problem with the transmission and is blinking the lite as a result. Usually when the light is blinking it means that the transmission isn't capable of, or being allowed to, shift into overdrive. I would have a transmission shop check this one out as soon as possible to see what is causing the light to blink as there may be a more serious problem happening within the system or with a transmission component.

Shift letters for a 1992 chevy 2500. what does each mean?


The D inside of an O is for overdrive. It is an automatic overdrive transmission. There isn't an overdrive button on it. If you want to disable the overdrive you have to shift down a gear.

I was driving and the orang light came on the dash board of my 2004 LX Sorento jeep. It is to the left on the dash board. what does this mean?


Check for the overdrive buttom on the shift lever, you may have simply depressed the overdrive button and that takes it out of overdrive until you push the button again. If that's not it, please describe the shape of the light.

What does O D on my ford ranger dashboard mean ?


O/D off is indicating that your overdrive has been disabled or turned off. if your vehicle is equipped with overdrive and this is happening then it usually means that overdriver is not engaging properly.

if your vehicle is not eqquipped with overdrive and is happening usually will indicate an electrical short

either way you should consider taking to mechanic shop

O/D Light is on


I respectfully disagree with C17Hydro.

The OD light is "on", because somehow, someone has accidentally turned the OverDrive switch to the "Off" position. This switch is located on the transmission shift lever. When the button is "in", the overdrive is engaged; this is where the switch is supposed to be, to give you maximum fuel mileage. When the button is "in", the light is turned off. When the button is "out", the OD is dis-engaged, and the light on the dash illuminates to indicate to you that the OD is "off". Unless the OD light is blinking rapidly, you have NO transmission issues.

Daewoo lanos 99 model Power light


I assume that it is an Automatic Transmiddion. Look on the side of the shifter. There is a button that locks the trans out of overdrive. It is supposed to be used in towing or going up steep hills where additional power is needed.

2000 es300 lexus auto w overdrive button overdrive 4th gear not work


There isn't anything wrong with your car. This is perfectly normal. I have a 2000 ES300 as well as other people that I know and it operates in the same way. Overdrive doesn't mean the same thing for every car or transmission. In our case overdrive is simply a reference to the top gear which is 4th gear. When you switch overdrive off(which is depressing the button causing the O/D OFF dash light to illuminate,) the highest gear becomes 3rd because you turned 4th gear or overdrive off. The application scenario for this is usually mountainous terrain where a lot of uphill driving makes it more feasible not to up shift into 4th gear while ascending and descending. It will not switch back to overdrive or 4th gear until you re-engage it by turning the overdrive back on or repressing the button. Again, when the O/D OFF dash light is illuminated, overdrive which is 4th gear is off and the highest gear will then become 3rd. It will never shift into 4th gear while this light is illuminated or overdrive is off. When you press the button and the O/D OFF dash light is NOT illuminated overdrive is on and therefore it will shift into 4th gear as usual. This applies to all 97-2001 ES300's and probably any other car you drive tat exhibits this same type of change when overdrive is turned off.
