Question about 1999 Toyota Avalon
The over-drive acts like an extra high gear in the gearbox and will assist in reducing fuel consumption when cruising.
There is an overdrive on/off switch fitted to many cars as the overdrive 'gear' will sometimes become a nuisance if climbing a hill for example, where the driver may desire the car to stay in a relatively low gear. The overdrive can sometimes cause the gearbox to keep changing from low to high in certain circumstances, when the driver demands more manual control of the gearbox.
The overdrive is generally preferred to stay on during the majority of the time.

Pull the rear bulbs out an inspect them for dark marks on the glass or abnormalities in the filament.
A bulb that works but is on the verge of failing will trigger the indicator on the dash as well.
Failing that, the lamp failure module is very common to fail, triggering the light as well. You can pry the box lid off and usually see burn marks on the circuit board when this happens.
The lamp failure module is located behind the left rear tire area in the trunk.

I would suggest to you to have the spiral cable (or 'clockspring') replaced. This is the electrical unit that transfers power to the air bag, the horn and the cruise control.
It is located right under the seering wheel.
Your description of the issue indicates to me that your spiral cable is loose, and making intermittant contact. If the vehicle had an air-bag deployment, this cable-device should have been changed.
