There is probably a button on the left side of the shifter as there is in the 1993 SC300. When pressed in O/D is functional. When sticking out there is no O/D. Check to see if this is your issue and good luck!

Why is my lexus rx 300 not going into gear 5


This could be caused by a variety of things.....but, coolant temperature is a significant input to the transmission control module for the overdrive gear engagement. If the transmission ECU determines the engine is not coming up to operating temperature, it will delay the engagement of the overdrive. There is also the possibility that the throttle position sensor has an issue as well....is the check engine lamp illuminated??? A scan of the engine control module and the trans module is in order....a good tech. will be able to discover the cause very quickly!

Does not shift into overdreive on the highway


Some vehicles are equipped with an overdrive button where you can turn the overdrive on or off. If there is a button, be certain that it is on. If that is not the case, have the transmission checked out.

My s10 won't stay in overdrive.


Do you mean this is the manual transmission? If it will not stay in gear, you are most likely losing your OD. As a temporary fix, rig a bungie cable to hold the shifter in OD while on long drives. While this is counter-productive for the lower gears, seeing as the cord will pull it out of the other gears if rigged properly, it works well for interstate and highway traversing.

2000 es300 lexus auto w overdrive button overdrive 4th gear not work


There isn't anything wrong with your car. This is perfectly normal. I have a 2000 ES300 as well as other people that I know and it operates in the same way. Overdrive doesn't mean the same thing for every car or transmission. In our case overdrive is simply a reference to the top gear which is 4th gear. When you switch overdrive off(which is depressing the button causing the O/D OFF dash light to illuminate,) the highest gear becomes 3rd because you turned 4th gear or overdrive off. The application scenario for this is usually mountainous terrain where a lot of uphill driving makes it more feasible not to up shift into 4th gear while ascending and descending. It will not switch back to overdrive or 4th gear until you re-engage it by turning the overdrive back on or repressing the button. Again, when the O/D OFF dash light is illuminated, overdrive which is 4th gear is off and the highest gear will then become 3rd. It will never shift into 4th gear while this light is illuminated or overdrive is off. When you press the button and the O/D OFF dash light is NOT illuminated overdrive is on and therefore it will shift into 4th gear as usual. This applies to all 97-2001 ES300's and probably any other car you drive tat exhibits this same type of change when overdrive is turned off.

2002 RX 300


I have a 2001 RX 300 and mine has done the same thing. The first time it happened the dealer had me bring it in. It was under warranty, and they replaced something, which I can't remember. Then it happened a year or so ago, and the service rep at the dealership told me that her car does the same thing, and I should just let it reboot itself in a day or so. It did it two days ago driving back from a long trip. The service rep said to bring it in because she didn't know what was going on (I think she was new).

It's now resolved itself again. It must be a fluke with the model, but I don't worry about it.
