The O D light off what does that mean? automatic 2002 kia spectra


that means that it is not utilizing the overdrive gear in the transmission. there should b a button on the shifter or on the dash to turn the overdrive back on. Consult your owners manual for the exact location.

The trans is inover drive only i pnt one in it and i drove the one it come out of


on the end of the lever that puts the car in gear is a button. This controls whether the overdrive is on or off. When overdrive is "off" a light comes on with OD showing on the dash. If the light is "off" then you are in overdrive. so when the light comes on push the button in the shifter handle. if you tow something you want the light to come back on "deactivating the overdrive" and you should see the dash light. You may just have a burnt out light bulb in the dash for this.

I have a light on my dash that says o/d off


i assume that you have a sentra 1997 automatic transmission. OD orange light on your dash means that your overdrive is not engaged meaning your sentra is not on fuel efficient mode.

solution: in your automatic stick shift, driver side is a button just below the T bar. press that button until the OD light dissapears on your dash. you're now in overdrive mode.

I need to know what is the proper use of the O/D off button


Typically Overdrive is engaged when cruising, when the car is in top gear. Whether the activation button is on the dash, or on the gear selector, makes little difference to how the Overdrive system works. Pressing it will disable the overdrive. Personally, I have left the OD on in every vehicle I have owned at all times. If left on it will only engage at a certain RPM (highway speeds etc.). I hope this helps and good luck.

Overdrive Button, where is it?


It's usually on the shifter somewhere.

O/D Light is on


I respectfully disagree with C17Hydro.

The OD light is "on", because somehow, someone has accidentally turned the OverDrive switch to the "Off" position. This switch is located on the transmission shift lever. When the button is "in", the overdrive is engaged; this is where the switch is supposed to be, to give you maximum fuel mileage. When the button is "in", the light is turned off. When the button is "out", the OD is dis-engaged, and the light on the dash illuminates to indicate to you that the OD is "off". Unless the OD light is blinking rapidly, you have NO transmission issues.

I have a 2000 mercury viillager and the overdrive won't engage when the button is pushed. No light on the dash as well.


When the O/D light is on, it means you are turoning the O/D OFF.

WHne the O/D light is off, it means O/D will engage.

If you think it is not going into O/D, check the switch.

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.
