SOURCE: my overdrive will not disengage in a 1995 dodge

I had a 1994 Dodge Ram. The Red Dodge Ram I had it malfunctioned and my brake became the throttle. I had to put the truck in reverse then park. to stop, after it was out of control at 80 mph a hill slowed us down. Are you sure its not electrical and the curse control is not giving you trouble? Mine had multifunction switch was not working and the headlight switch burned up. I also found out that Audi had problem with the brake becoming the throttle in the 1980s Daimler Chrysler and Audi were German made. I don't think there is an easy answer. I hope you stay safe. Another man is having strange trouble also. I'm sure there are many more people with trouble with the vehicles. I wish Dodge would step up to the truth. and recall their nightmares. I saw many of their 1996 Dodge trucks at their dealers shop with all the electrical pulled out.

Do you know that there is a button in the end of the shift lever? If pressed, it will disengage overdrive.

SOURCE: 2000 dodge durango overdive solenoid is faiuling,

That solenoid is inside the trans. The fact you were towing something heavy had nothing to do with the failure. You need to take it to a shop that can check the cvi's(clutch volume index) & some other critical components.

Have a 2005 Dakota and the automatic transmission will not go into overdrive. Runs fine just a slight increase in RPM. Is it the Output Speed sensor or the SOLENOID/PRESSURE SWITCH ASSEMBLY

Bert, look in your manual for an over drive fuse/relay and check them as a first step, could be a faulty 3/4 solenoid. Take it into a good shop and have scanned, diagnosed and estimate for repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Transmission will not shift into overdrive sometimes, mostly when cold. After engine is warm, it will shift. It started doing this after i cahneged the transmission fluid and filter to Royal Purple

Overdrive is electrically controlled by the pcm. When it's cold you need to check to see if the pcm is grounding the overdrive solenoid. If it is the solenoid might be bad or if the pcm is not grounding it then you need to check items that would cause the pcm to lock out overdrive. Coolant temp, TPS, Vehicle speed sensor, ECT. You will have to have it scanned to do this.

I have a 1993 Dodge Dakota 4x4 with 5.2L (318ci) automatic overdrive transmission. It's supposed to be an overdrive tranny, but does not go into O/D. Also lately it has been hesitating to kick down into...

Dodges are so natorious for there tranny issues, you can try to have a tranny flush at a service center and it may prolong the evitable end of your tranny which seems to be going downhill. a fluid/filter on it may help some if you dont want to spend the $100 that most places chage for the flush, but you can also throw in the Lucus Oil tranny treatment, (availalbe at walmart or any auto parts store about $15) it has done good for me in the past...but from what you discribed it sounds more like the dodge flaw which is the beginning of the end....

Ovberdrive on my dodge dakato 2000 quit

You will have to check your OD relay and fuse. Then take a peak underneath at the overdrive solenoid. This should have a single wire connected to it and it will be about the size of an old Tomato paste can. Put your hand on it and have someone else push the overdrive button with the key in the run position but, not , running. If you feel a clicking or tapping motion, you may want to remove the solenoid and clean the throw rod with a aercsol spray such as carb cleaner or even better Brakleen because this one leaves no film. At the worst case, you'll have to replace the solenoid.

Differential has gone bad in 91 Dakota(V6 auto.). I have access to 89 Dakota (V6 auto). Can I change out the entire rear-end. Can I put the axles from the 91 into the 89 to keep the 6 lug wheel pattern....

91 to 93 can have the same 6 lug pattern. the 89 is strickly a 5 lug. The axles from the 89 will not fit in the 91 differential. Yes it would be easier on you to change out the whole thing and change it to a 5 lug truck. Good luck, from a Chrysler parts employee.
