OD'd on OD? sigh.
OD is a tranny function. (top gear, overdriven ratio)
the lamp can also show failures.... (old cars, where is this lamp>?)
all this is in the operators guide, in the glove box.
read the lamp and its modes of operation. and warnings.
07 is here, my be same,,, probably

page 134 , tow-haul switch set wrong? ERS option ! only.
does car have the EVICs display that gives message warnings?
like transmission overheated, etc.?
OD operation is complex. 4s or 5speed.
it can drop out with too cold and engine, or in 4wd.
speed, load and other conditions. including
Is the Check Engine lamp glowing , running? if yes scan it.
as this lamp also reports transmission errors. pg 176.
is your car 2wd or 4wd? ?
conditions for OD
normal engine/trans temperatures.
above 30mph.
tow-haul , switch off.
out door temps not too cold. page 260
advice: What is the CEL doing and are all fuses good.
1: this car uses, CAN buss, a car digital network.
it can have errors, and if the OD function is acting up
the book says, do the CAN diagnostics to see if there are errors
from the Display system called CLuster, and the BCM/PCM or tranny functions.
there are 2 tranmissions ( RFE or NAG?)and 3 engines and diff, 2wd/4wd systems options. non of which were stated.
nor exactly where this light is? they never mention it in the opr guide.

Overdrive light staying on what might be the issue

If the overdrive "off" switch is not engaged, it could be a problem inside the transmission. The light means overdrive is not available.

93 buick century automatic drive with overdrive can manually shift up through gears to get up to speed but when slowing down if you press on the accelerater car begins to **** until you let off the gas...

It's not coming out of overdrive when you touch the brake pedal because the brake light switch/OD shutdown is either out of adjustment or just plain bad. It's staying in overdrive at low speed and causing the shuddering. Replace or adjust the brake light switch under dash at the brake pedal.

1993 grand cherokeeoverdrive button light stays on ,no overdrive

The button itself may be bad. If the button is ok, then the problem could be in the transmission control module located behind the dash or worse, it could be an internal problem with the transmission itself. I would start small by checking or replacing the panel that includes the overdrive button. The easiest and cheapest place to get one is a salvage or junk yard. If this doesn't solve the problem then it is best to take your Jeep to certified mechanic. When it comes to the Grand Cherokee, they used around 5 or 6 different transmissions and several different transmission control modules. I wouldn't recommend the do-it-yourself guy try working on those systems. I Just recently replaced the transmission in my 93 Cherokee and finding a used one that was actually the right model was like looking for a needle in a haystack

1994 toyota paseo: overdrive problem

I would start with replacing your tranny fluid. black is no good. your tranny should hold about 7 qts of fluid. The tranny fluid runs through your radiator to help keep it cool. If your thermostat is stuck closed your eng coolant won't circulate and the coolant will get hotter inside your radiator. thus making your tranny fluid hotter and breaking it down. After time it will turn black from getting too hot. Let your car warm up to normal operating temperture then grab your upper radiator hose. It should be very warm. If not your thermostat is stuck closed.

The service light is a reminder for you to have the car serviced, it can be reset, and it will come on again in 5,000 miles or so.

The overdrive light may be caused by the wiring to the overdrive solenoid on the transmission, or the relay. Just be sure the wiring is ok before replacing the relay, or you can damage the new relay.
