Should be your Overdrive Button. I know for sure it is on Scion and Toyota. Should be the Same for Saturn.

I have a 2009 GMC Acadia. What should the ERS mode be in on a normal basis?


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.

Electronic Range Select (ERS) Mode
ERS mode allows you to choose the top-gear limit of the transmission and the vehicle's speed while driving down hill or towing a trailer. The vehicle has an electronic shift position indicator within the instrument panel cluster. When using the ERS Mode a number will display next to the L, indicating the current gear that has been selected.
To use this feature:
Move the shift lever to L (Low).
Press the plus/minus button located on the shift lever, to increase or decrease the gear range available.
When you shift from D (Drive) to L (Low), the transmission will shift to a pre-determined lower gear range. The highest gear available for this pre-determined range is displayed next to the L in the DIC. See Driver Information Center (DIC) and DIC Operation and Displays for more information. The number displayed in the DIC is the highest gear that the transmission will be allowed to operate in. This means that all gears below that number are available. For example, when 4 (Fourth) is shown next to the L, 1 (First) through 4 (Fourth) gears are automatically shifted by the vehicle. the transmission will not shift into 5 (Fifth) until the + (Plus) button is used or you shift back into D (Drive).
While in L (Low), the transmission will prevent shifting to a lower gear range if the engine speed is too high. You have a brief period of time to slow the vehicle. If vehicle speed is not reduced within the time allowed, the lower gear range shift will not be completed. You must further slow the vehicle, then press the - (Minus) button to the desired lower gear range.
Automatic Engine Grade braking is not available when the ERS is active. It is available in D (Drive) for both normal and Tow/Haul mode. While using the ERS, cruise control and the tow/haul mode can be used. See Tow/Haul Mode for more information.

Lincoln town car 97 transmission problem. I have a town car 97, the problem is when I brake or let the car slow down by itself and when the car slow down until 48 km/h I can feel the down shift maybe from...


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.

My envoy is stuck in reverse the shift will not move and I can not press the button to move the shift. Can someone tell me what it can be please


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.

HOW CAN I CHANGE THE SHIFT KNOB ON MY 2000 FORD EXPEDITION


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!

Wats the purpose of the perfect/ normal Button next to the gear shift in my 93 Saturn sl 1


It actually means "performance". In that setting the transmission will shift fast, more "crisply". You probally won't see much of a difference. Normal gets you better fuel economy.

My son press some of the buttons and it displays "O/D OFF". please tell me how to turn on O/D. Early response would highly appreciated. REgards Jacob Francis


Hello, welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

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.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.
