Look for a cable on the throttle body under the hood.
Sometimes these come loose and can be adjusted.
If your a woman or even a man go to an auto parts store, I like Auto Zone, and ask them if they can find it for you, I'm confident they'll help you!

Why is the Overdrive disengaging while im driving

It is impossible to answer your question without knowing the YEAR, MAKE, and MODEL of your vehicle.
That being said, the overdrive will disengage when you are climbing hills or otherwise accelerating while driving.
If the overdrive disengages too easily, suspect a vacuum leak or an engine output power loss.

I have a 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee locks up in overdrive. I can turn off the overdrive and the transmission shifts beautifully. Not sluggish on take off at all. At a loss on what it could be any help would be...

Bad sensor. Cannot say exaclty which one, but I would assume the throttle position sensor. Could possibly be the switch on the shifter needs replacing, or the overdirve relay needs to be replaced.

Below is a method you can "self diagnose"

To get codes out of the Transmission Control Module (TCM). The lamp in the Overdrive OFF switch is used to signal the various flash codes. To view flash codes, proceed as follows:

  1. Turn ignition key ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON finally leaving the key in the ON position. Leave the Overdrive OFF Switch in the normal overdrive (ON) position.
  2. Immediately begin counting the number of flashes displayed by the Overdrive OFF Switch indicator lamp.
  3. Flash codes will correspond to Powertrain Control Module codes in duration and spacing.
  4. A code 55 identifies the end of flash code transmission.
And the possible codes are:

  • 11 No Engine Speed Sensor Signal
  • 12 No Output Shaft Sensor Signal
  • 13 No Vehicle Speed Sensor Signal
  • 14 Governor Pressure Sensor Signal
  • 15 Throttle Position Signal
  • 16 Transmission Temperature Sensor
  • 17 Overdrive Off Switch Circuit
  • 18 System Voltage Out of Limits
  • 19 Standby Voltage Out of Limits
  • 21 Governor Pressure Solenoid Circuit
  • 22 3-4 Solenoid Circuit
  • 23 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit
  • 24 Overdrive Off Lamp Circuit
  • 25 EEPROM Checksum Error
  • 26 Governor Pressure Sensor Offset Drift
  • 55 End of Message
If you still get no codes, then we have to explore a mechanical problem inside the transmission. Possibly the overdrive solenoid not venting or a lower valve body malfunction.

best of luck and let us know?

Loss overdrive

Sorry to say but you will probably need a new or rebuilt transmission. Your car is equipped with a Ford " AOD" transmission and this is usually the first sign of going out. Continuing to drive it will result in complete loss of pull and replacement will be necessary, not to mention a tow truck to get it to a shop or home.12_24_2012_4_28_25_pm.png

1997 grand cherokee orvis 44r3 tranny, no 4th gear up shift, pressure overdrive piston is 65 psi, would the overdrive solenoid partially stuck open would cause loss of pressure? Air pressured overdrive...

They had a lot of problems with the pressure sensors. I would replace the whole tail shaft because they had problems with them. You don't have to remove the trans to remove the shaft. Get one from the junk yard. Hope this helps leave comment.

4.0 auto will not shift into overdrive and check engine light is on

The check engine light is on to alert you to a failure in the system, that is most likely related to the loss of overdrive, have the system tested for the fault code that is stored in the computers memory, any Kragen or Autozone parts store will do this test for free. You will most likely get a code for a loss of signal from the VSS (vehicle speed sensor), that loss will cause the no OD symptom you have.

Can a electical problem cause the tranny not to shift into 3rd or 4th gear in drive or overdrive rebuilt the tranny change a couple other parts still having same problem

Hi, the trans in this year, has a 4 wire connector that is for overdrive only, the loss of gears is probably a mechanical issue internal to the trans, and an overhaul is probably in order. I would take it to a local trans shop, as diag is usually free. This will give you a better Idea. Good luck...
