It wont shift into overdrive the transmission has pressure I changed to fluids when I go to pass it wont shift into overdrive


strange as it may sound, transmissions do not shift into overdrive to pass
they down shift a ratio to get extra torque from the motor and will stay down shifted until the vacuum actuator shifts it back and only then when the VSS reports to the TCM that a ratio change up is needed will the overdrive click in
If you cannot get OD under any circumstances run the fault codes and check for a problem overdrive servo/ solenoid , TCM unit

I have a light on my dash that says o/d off


i assume that you have a sentra 1997 automatic transmission. OD orange light on your dash means that your overdrive is not engaged meaning your sentra is not on fuel efficient mode.

solution: in your automatic stick shift, driver side is a button just below the T bar. press that button until the OD light dissapears on your dash. you're now in overdrive mode.

Overdrive stopped working rx 300 stays in lower gear


There is probably a button on the left side of the shifter as there is in the 1993 SC300. When pressed in O/D is functional. When sticking out there is no O/D. Check to see if this is your issue and good luck!

I have a 1997 ford expedition and the overdrive light stays on when its actually off is this normal and is it good for the overdrive to be on what should i do


Hi, this light is signaling a malfunction within the OD shift solenoid that is located within the transmission. the best action here is to take it to the local ford dealer for a PCM scan. you should receive a code that will point to a transmission OD shift solenoid issue.

Please rate and god bless:)

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.
