Remove the shroud around the steering column and shifter and look closly at the wires coming out of the shifter at the pivot of the shifter, if its not to bad you can tapeit and reposition it and be good to go.

2003 f 150 transmission overdrive fuse


The problem is that either the wiring harness going to the overdrive control motor has chafed and is shorting out, or the overdrive control motor is bad. Check out the wiring harness VERY carefully, if it's OK replace the control motor.

If you press the overdrive button you are turning the OD off not on. I think you may think you need to turn it on, but that is not the case it is fully automatic and the switch is provided for situations like towing where the OD gear puts undue strain on the engine and transmission.

I have seen multiple trucks with similar fuse blowing problem and have found most are caused by a shorted out overdrive switch or wiring inside the steering column. Usually this is triggered by moving the shifter or something on the column though usually the shifter since thats where the overdrive switch is mounted. If the wiring is the problem after the connector in the column then you have to replace the entire shift lever since the wiring for the overdrive switch is integral to the shift lever.

Cannot disengage overdrive on 2003 Ford F150 4.2L


Check the Fuse for the OD function, this is cab fuse panel fuse #29, 5A.
If This fuse is blown, chances are the wires at the end of the shift lever are chaffed and causing the problem. This happens some times ( can't say why ), but it is simple enough to check and repair the wires if the insulation is chaffed.

Check the wiring going to the shifter. After time the wire will rub and cause a short to ground near the rubber boot area on the shifter.

The light on my overdrive button doesn't come on, but it also doesn't take my engine out of overdrive. Is this still a fuse related issue?


The OD off switch is powered by the cab fuse panel, Fuse #29 ( 5A ).
If this fuse is blown, could be chaffed wires at the base of the gear shift lever, where they turn out of the chrome tube( behind the plastic cover ).
Without this fuse working, the PCM cannot be signaled to take the truck out of OD, so it could just be the fuse causing the issue. Please add a comment on what you find on the fuse.

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
