Sounds like the switch is stuck, can you clean it with WD40? or a silicon spray?

O/D Off

That is the transmission overdrive indicator light. On the left side of the gear-shift handle, you'll see a small button marked "O/D." This is the button used to toggle between "Overdrive On" and "Overdrive Off." Push the button to turn on the overdrive. If overdrive was already on, pushing the button turns it off.

When you push the overdrive button the light does not come on how do i know overdrive is disengaged ?

at speed ( above 45MPH ) the engine RPM will increase when shifting the overdrive "off"

conversely when at speed and you turn overdrive "on" the RPMs will decrease

What does the 00 off light mean on a 1997 nissan sentra gxe mean

Hello winman
I think the light you're refering to may be the OD off light. If this is the case, the on/off button for the electronic overdrive, is on the shift lever
and may have been pushed by accident. Just push the button again
and the overdrive will engage and the light should go out.
Hope this helps.

My transmission wont **** into overdrive. 1999 SL2 twin cam. When the engine gets warn it usually goes into overdrive. When it is not into overdrive the tach neddle goes up and down 300 rpm when I push on...

i bet it just started doing this when the weather changed,some transmissions have an internal thermostat and will not go into overdrive until a certain temp when starting from a cold start,you might also want to consider a trans service,hope this helps

2000 ford explorer the overdrive light came on, what does that mean?

Is this the light on the dash notifing you that you hit the button to turn the O.D. off that you're talking about? I have a 98 and my button is located in the end of the shift lever. I have hit it several times accidently and noticed the light in the dash coming on. All you have to do is push the button back in and your vehicle will once again be in O.D. which is where you want to be except when you are off roading it. Overdrive cuts your engine revolutions by 1/3 thus giving you better gas milage on the highway.
I hope this helps you and please don't forget to rate my advice.
