This could be several things. check the fluid level to be sure that it is ok. If there is enough ATF then the issue is with the TCC (torque converter clutch) or the solenoid that controls it.

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.

Overdrive will not engage.

Does the car have a button on the shifter handle somewhere to disable overdrive? Also, there is a plug on the transmission that must be plugged in to engage overdrive so check to make sure it is plugged in correctly.

2004 Kia Rio O/D Off light is on. What is this? What does it mean. Can I drive the car.

your transmission overdrive gear is turned off. There should be a button on the shifter or console to turn it on. Overdrive provides better gas mileage on the highway. If you have more questions, please let me know.

Transmission problems

This is what my 04 Kia Rio is doing exactly. I was told that the TCM and Shift Solenoid "C" is faulty. Am trying to figure out how to go about fixing that without paying more than the car is worth. My tech checked with the local Kia dealership and the TCM new is I think around $700. You also have to buy the program to tell this high dollar part what to do and that is right at $100. I have found that sometimes if I let the car warm up and then keep hitting the overdrive button, eventually it starts shifting correctly.
