Question about 1996 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

I replaced the shifter knob with the od button but it doesn't....

I bought a 1996 Ford Explorer Sport. I replaced the shifter knob with the overdrive button but it doesn't seem to be working. I bought it with the Overdrive handle / button missing so I went to the junk yard and replaced it with an identical one. I can't tell if it's working so I assume it not. How do I get it working again? Is it possible it might have shorted some fuse or sensor?

Where is the fuse for the overdrive located?


more than likely not a fuse check your relays,common fuse locations are under the dash left hand side near what used to be e-brake pedal,behind the glove box,or under the hood,in the trunk,and under the backside of the center console,but if still having no luck pull up your console,and look at the bottom of your shifter,there should be a module there,it has a slide pin for shifting between gears,and also a relay which will accept (OD) signals if your particular model has manual OD,other possibilities could be body control module,bad connections,if not more than likely is mechanical

The trans is inover drive only i pnt one in it and i drove the one it come out of


on the end of the lever that puts the car in gear is a button. This controls whether the overdrive is on or off. When overdrive is "off" a light comes on with OD showing on the dash. If the light is "off" then you are in overdrive. so when the light comes on push the button in the shifter handle. if you tow something you want the light to come back on "deactivating the overdrive" and you should see the dash light. You may just have a burnt out light bulb in the dash for this.

My overdrive light is flashing indicating the overdrive is off


this could mean there is a problem with the transmission,but most times when OD light is flashing it is because the wiring to the OD switch is broken.
is the OD switch on the end of the gear shift lever ?
or does your vehicle have the shifter on console between seats ?
