If it is an automatic transmission, it should be in full time overdrive except if you are pulling a trailer.

My car is a 2006 forenza it wont shift into overdrive unless i push the hold button but if you leave it on and slow down it has no power any help mine


you sound like guy that works FSM free,?
no books. why do that ,? (pain)
i guess you get scan codes. and above is wrong. P0703. is it.?
post the full codes, all of them all DTCs stored.
then look them up in the FSM and what does it says.
it tells you, to do more tests. to find true cause.

my guess, you never said
car drives prefect,
the CEL glows, or the scan tools shows MIL active.
right>?
the hold is for ice.
the hold prevents down shifts (dangerous) on ICE.

with most feature of the TCM (tranny brain) lots of failures
cross over. to shifting.
lots.
like engine overheated
engine overloaded.
engine speed,
brakes on or off.
cruise controls
traction. and ABS.
direction controls. (if present)

so stop ignoring those codes and fix what it told you to fix
fix the what is it, P0703...
???

the recall (sic) TSB TS-09-03129R
summary:Suzuki vehicles: automatic transmission shift lever is loose in the shift gate and/or ignition key cannot be removed. The transmission gear shift lever does not hold firmly to the left of the shift gage as expected.


and the 703, dont lie. it told you its fails and you ignored this fact.

http://www.aboutautomobile.com/DTC/P0703

it's bad, replace or recalibrate the switch.
and on newer cars the switch may need calibration after the replacement.
owning a Chapter 11 car company car is a PITA.

id sell it. i would and get a Toyota.

HAVE A 1989 FORD F-150 WITH AUTO TRANS THAT YOU CAN'T SHIFT OUT OF THE "PARK" POSITION AT THE STEERING COLUMN. THE TRANY CAN BE SHIFTED AT THE TRANS WHEN LINKAGE IS DICONNECTED.I THINK THE...


What trans? AOD? This is 1992 F Series, all I have.

Shift Controls, Automatic Transmission The transmission shift control linkage or cable transfers the transmission operating mode from the selector lever to the transmission. The indicated transmission position on the steering column is transferred to a shift lever on the bottom of the steering column. On vehicles equipped with cable-operated shift systems, the indicated position of the transmission selector lever is transferred to the transmission through the shift cane, then to the cable, and down to the transmission manual shift lever at the transmission. On vehicles equipped with shift rod assemblies, the rod transfers the indicated transmission selector level position through a bell crank assembly to a control rod. The control rod transfers the indicated position to the transmission assembly.
----------------------------------------------
Automatic Transmission Manual Linkage Adjustments
  1. With the engine stopped and the parking brake applied, place the transmission selector lever at the steering column in the D (DRIVE position) for C6 applications and in the (D) (OVERDRIVE position) for AOD and E4OD applications, and hold against the D or (D) stop by applying a three-pound force to the selector lever knob.
  1. Loosen the shift rod adjusting nut at point A. Refer to the following illustrations.
  1. Shift the manual lever at the transmission into the (D) (overdrive) position for E4OD, by moving the lever all the way rearward, then forward two detents.
  1. With the selector lever and transmission manual lever in the(D) position, tighten the nut at point A to 17-24 Nm (12-18 ft-lb) torque. Use care to prevent motion between the stud and rod.
  1. Remove the three-pound force from the steering column selector lever knob.
  1. Operate the shift lever in all positions to make certain that the manual lever at the transmission is in full detent in all gear ranges. Re-adjust the linkage if required.
  1. On F-Super Duty Chassis Cab and Motorhome and Commercial Chassis recheck for correct operation of the automatic transmission selector indicator (PRN(D)21). Refer to Section 11-04A, Steering Column, Shift Rod Within Tube. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Under no circumstances will it be permissible to adjust linkage in any position other than the(D) position for E4OD applications.
---------------------
Automatic Transmission Shift Cable Adjustment
  1. From inside the vehicle, place the column shift select lever in the DRIVE position (C6) of the OVERDRIVE (AOD and E4OD). Hang a three-pound weight on the selector lever.
  1. Raise vehicle on a hoist.
  1. Remove the shift cable from the transmission lever ball stud.
  1. Pull down the lock tab on the shift cable body.
  1. Position the transmission shift lever in the DRIVE position (C6) or the OVERDRIVE position (AOD and E4OD). This is three detents from the front-most lever position with the first position counting as one.
  1. Connect the cable end fitting to the transmission lever ball stud.
  1. Push up on the lock tab to lock the cable in the correctly adjusted position.
  1. Lower vehicle down from hoist and remove the three-pound weight from the column shift select lever.
  1. After making the adjustment, check for park engagement. Check the transmission control lever in all detent positions with the engine running to make sure correct detent/transmission actions. Readjust if necessary.

My 1994 Ford Ranger SuperCab won't shift into the overdrive. All the other gears in the tranny shift smooth and work well. It just won't shift into the overdrive. Every once in a while the check engine...


There is an overdrive bypass switch on the end of the shift lever on some, Push the button on the end of the shifter. It is easy to overlook, as it is on the very end of the shift lever, and can be inadvertently switched off when you shift to park. Hope this solves your problem

Light on dash says o/d off what does it mean and how do I turn back on?


O/D Off means that you pushed a button on the shift lever and effectively "disabled" overdrive. This mode is normally used only when towing something fairly heavy or in some very slick snow or icy conditions. To get the light to go off and put the van back in overdrive, look for the small button on your shift lever and press it in while driving or in park, doesn't matter as long as the car is running.

How can i use the O/D


There is an O/D button on the dash or on the shift lever. The "O/D" stand for overdrive the vehicle is normally in the overdrive mode unless you turn it "off" with the O/D button. The only times that you should have to turn it off is. Towing or hauling a heavy load or mountain driving to have better power for pulling the steep grades and to have engine braking affect coming down the mountain. If you driving in the mountains remember to use your engine to hold your speed down, not brakes you'll burn the brakes up in no time. Read the owners manual for mountain driving. Keep in mind everytime you turn the vehicle off and restart it, it's going to go back to the O/D mode.

How do I shift into 4WD on my Suburban which is otherwise auto shift.


There should be a "stack" of buttons to the left of the sterring column on the instrument panel. They should be labeled something like 2H, 4H, 4L, and another for full time AWD. You need to push the desired button for the mode you are looking for. If you are in the full time mode the truck will operate in 2WD until it senses slipping and then will automatically distribute power to all 4 wheels. Some trucks, such as LS models, are not equipped with the full time mode so you'd need to push the 2H button to come out of 4WD.

I can't remember the exact insignia ont he buttons because my Tahoe is not here for me to look at. But you should notice the buttons right away. The GM's of that year did not use a lever to go to 4WD it was all push button.

I have a 1991 Volvo 740 w/an automatic transmission.A couple of months ago the overdrive indicator ( red arrow ) started to turn on and it doesn't turn off when I press the button. When I drive, it seems...


It may be a faulty relay - usually behind the radio - it makes a clicking sound when you hit the button on the shift lever. Or it may be the overdrive solinoid which is mounted on the top of the tranny. Check all of your connestions first. One other thing - the wire from the shift lever overdrive button to the overdrive solenoid on the tranny may run over the top of the drive shaft - check for wear

Overdrive light on my 99 f150 never comes on...replaced switch already...could it be the harness?


If the over drive is located on the shift lever on the column it should be on with no light. The only way the light comes on is if you turn it off. Over drive button is located on the end of the shift lever. Drive it down the road and count how many times it shifts it should only shift 4 times. Start 1, 2, 3, 4OD with light off and 3 times with light on.

Overdrive button on extend cab ford f150


Problem Solved Look No Longer. Overdrive switch fuse blown, auto door locks not working, fuse after fuse after fuse, chasing wires grrrr. Remove the steering column cover (3 screws from the bottom) opens like a **** shell. Your switch is located on the shift lever, the wire for the switch is routed through the handle and comes out where the shift lever mounts to the column. Look very closely at the wire in this area. Most likely rubbed through. MR
