SOURCE: hard shift and blinking overdrive

The blinking overdrive button is telling u that a serious fault has occurred in the electronic controls or a mechanical fault such as excess slippage is occurring.

SOURCE: 1995 jeep laredo overdrive is not shifting

Your overdrive should kick in at about 45mph, pretty much at or about 2000rpm. To see if it engaged, lightly touch the brake pedal and it will disengage.It should also disengage when you mash the pedal down to go into passing gear, and re-engage when conditions "normalize" again. You can tell that it has engaged because the tach will drop a few hundred rpms. If it's not doing this, a simple trans oil change (with filter) may correct the problem. OD is activated by a shift solenoid on the valve body that may be a bit gummed up.
95's show a shift control module on some diagrams I've seen, but not on others. I read this as a possible "half-year change" So you may or not have one. If you do, I'd check that as well!

SOURCE: rx300 with 143000 miles, overdrive won't engage

Start by checking the least expensive items:

Make sure you are not activating the O/D switch in the shift stick inadvertently.

Look at the display panel, if the "Eng" light is on, you must get the code and repair the affected item. If you have knock sensors and/or oxygen sensors malfunctions that may prevent the transmission from shifting to O/D.

Check the ground cables located in the engine compartment, especially the ones behind the air intake manifold. If they are loose or broken it affects the ECU (car computer) and causes the transmission to work erratically. If they become disconnected it may burn the ECU and shut down the car.

Now going to more profound mechanics, it could be a sticking shift solenoid valve, your RX300 transmission have five of those located were the transmission oil strainer (filter) is. It can also be an ECU malfunction and/or related to the wiring from the ECU to the transmission connectors.

Always start from the least expensive and recheck the obvious. Good luck.

SOURCE: 2000 volkswagen beetle will not shift into

sounds like an electrical problem with the transmission ...these transmissions are fully electronic and the gears are engaged by servo valves these are controlled by the computer.... if there is any problem with the engine or a few other things it will be put into safe mode and it wont engage overdrive ..it may need to be scanned to see if any codes exist in the auto trans ecm..

I have a nissan caravan, so I dont know how overdrive works, please help me!


if it is automatic then when the engine rpms is set to correspond with the tail shaft rpms then the transmission control module effects a change into over drive
If there is a change in conditions ,such as a loss of vacuum from acceleration , the TCM down shifts out of OD for better acceleration, return to od when things are again in balance
the same on slowing down--the tcm sensors report an imbalance so the tcm keeps shifting down until the car has stopped.

What does it mean when the O/D off come on


This is the "overdrive" on or off indicator light. When it says "OD off", means that overdrive is off and transmission is in 3rd gear. When it's "on" then transmission will shift into 4th gear or "Overdrive". The engine will turn slower using less fuel for better economy.

2000 Olds. Sillouhette idles normal but runs at high rpms on highway (3000+). What could be the issue(s)? Thanks


It is probably not shifting into overdrive properly. Can you feel it shift through all the gears?

The rpms are too high, is this normal when driving 70 mph and rpms are at 2500


if you had 4:10 gears in the rear axle maybe. but i,d say your over drive is out. your truck should be running at about 2100 rpms or a little less at 70.
