What does it mean when the O/D off come on


This is the "overdrive" on or off indicator light. When it says "OD off", means that overdrive is off and transmission is in 3rd gear. When it's "on" then transmission will shift into 4th gear or "Overdrive". The engine will turn slower using less fuel for better economy.

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.

When i start my kia there is no lights on the dashe board warning anything is wrong or on. but when i click what should turn on the overdrive the o/d off light come on. does that light mean the over drive...


If the o/d light is illuminated on your dash, the overdrive is turned off on the vehicle. When the light is off, the o/d is on. The light just lights up to tell you that you've turned the o/d off.

My overdrive light is flashing, what does this mean?


In many cars, this light means the car wants to use the overdrive gear but it has been overridden by the driver. If you have an overdrive button, try switching it on and see if the light stops flashing.
Another reason for the light may be that the transmission cannot shift into overdrive due to a fault. To be sure, check your owners manual and let us know if you still have questions.

What does O D on my ford ranger dashboard mean ?


O/D off is indicating that your overdrive has been disabled or turned off. if your vehicle is equipped with overdrive and this is happening then it usually means that overdriver is not engaging properly.

if your vehicle is not eqquipped with overdrive and is happening usually will indicate an electrical short

either way you should consider taking to mechanic shop

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.
