My overdrive button is broken off , there are three wires stiicking out and it is in overdrive all of the time . is ther a way to dissingage the overdrive


There's just a pin that holds the shifter arm in place. You can remove the pin from the top under the rubber boot and pick up a used shifter arm from just about any scrap or recycling yard. I've already sold 5 or 6 this year for 25 dollars. It takes about 5 minutes, and comes with a good OD button. To be quite honest you could put a clip on two of the exposed wires in the same amount of time it'd take to replace it.

Overdrive light on shifter is flashing on my 1997 f-250 automatic 7.3 deisel


IT IS LETTING YOU KNOW THAT YOU HAVE A TROUBLE CODE IN THE TCM (TRAN CONTROL MODULE) COMPUTER MOST OF THE TIME IF ITS FLASHING,IT WILL EITHER NOT SHIFT INTO OVERDRIVE,OR SHIFT WEIRD,USUALLY IT WILL GIVE YOU REASON TO CHECK THE TRANS, IT COULD BE A SIMPLE AS THE O/D SWITCH IS BAD, & IT IS TELLING YOU THAT O/D CANNOT BE TURNED OFF.

Overdrive is always on


The prob is a fragile wiring harness at the base of your shifter handle, the wirings easily break from movement when shifting from park to drive. The wires can be respliced or the handle can be replaced

Ford f250 airconditioner switch does not work on 1996 f250 diesel. it was working intermittently and randomly then just stopped. where is the switch and the fuses are all fine. and how do i replace? thanks...


there is a pressure switch next to the air dryer under the hood.to test jump the 2 wires together and if the compressor works then the switch is bad and the system will need to be evacuated to take out the switch.Change the filter in there as well the recharge the system with 134a approx. 2 1\2 lbs

Instrument cluster not working and truck wont go


I had the same issue with my 2002 F250 7.3 L. The overdrive switch was shorting the circuit due to exposed wires in the steering colum. I replaced the switch and resolved the problem.

Hyundai Overdrive wont engage


It is not suggested strip and twist wires. Better take it to an authorized service station to check what causes the problem.Is it OVERDRIVE SWITCH or CRUISE CONTROL MODULE faulty?
Over drive switch has three points. (5 to 4 selects "ON" or 5 to 6 selects "OFF").
Right click on following schematic, "save picture as" to a location in your PC so you have a ZOOM IN view.
