Driver Shift Control (DSC) or Electronic Range Selection (ERS): This position (M-Manual / L-Low) allows the driver to utilize the DSC/ERS system. When the shift selector lever is moved to this position, the driver may select upshifts or downshifts by using the paddle switches located on the steering wheel/shifter. An upshift is requested by pushing either + button. Refer to the vehicle owner's manual for more specific DSC/ERS information.
Driver Shift Control (DSC)/Electronic Range Selection (ERS)
Refer to the owner's manual for specific instructions on DSC. The TCM will override shift commands when maximum engine speed is achieved and will protect from any downshift which may cause excessive engine RPMs.
That doesn't sound like a problem, it sounds like it's shifting out of "Overdrive" due to low RPM. That would be normal. If it's more noticeable now than in the past, that's likely just wear of the parts (that's an old transmission at this point), or need transmission fluid checked/replaced. Only someone who knows transmissions can really diagnose if there is any problem, but what you are feeling is the normal downshift out of "overdrive" into the next gear, the only question is is it more noticeable now than in the past.
The trans shift cable is held onto the shifter with a little round plastic clip that you can get from the "help" section at your local auto parts store for under $15. Common problem, the clip wears out and the cable pops off.
The shift knob is part of the shifter handle. The overdrive shift button assembly and button cover are replacable seperately. To remove the button, simply pry off the cover, pull out the button and replace. reverse the order to assemble.
To remove the shift handle, remove the ignition cylinder by turning to the run position and pushing a small pin, drill bit or allen wrench into the hole on the bottom of the trim cover hole to release the ignition cylinder. Pull the cylinder out. Next remove the screws from the bottom column trim cover and remove the upper trim. Next, remove the pin from the shifter and disconnect the electrical connector. Replace the shifter and reassemble. Good luck, please ask for more information if you can't leave four thumbs up. Have a great day!

The OD OFF light has been turned on via the small square button on the side of the shifter handle. This button should normally be in the 'depressed' position, which allows the OD to engage. The OD OFF light is illuminated on the inst panel to alert you that the OD has been manually disengeged. The OD is the final shift of the transmission, thusly giving you maximum fuel mileage.
To rectify this, press the button on the side fo the shifter handle.
