SOURCE: overdrive wont engage and the O/D light blinks

if the overdrive light is blinking then there is a problem with the TCM transmission control module. if you have access to a scanner, pull the codes, that will lead you on the path to what is wrong. if you dont you will have to take it for service.

SOURCE: Overdrive light flashing on my 1994 Lexus ES300/speedometer quit

I bet money on the tranny speed sensor being the problem- I think NAPA has em for about $100 bucks or so, but that has been a while. Good luck

SOURCE: 2001 honda accord will not go into overdrive

Ok, make sure the tcm is connected properly. there is a o/d shift solenoid that is controlled by this device(tcm/pcm). if the wires and module aren't connected properly or, if the tcm/pcm is malfunctioning, it will render the OD inoperable. inspect the tcm and wires on the trans for correct connections and fit. test the module for its operational value and, pull the pan on the trans to test the OD shift solenoid as well.

SOURCE: The light on my overdrive button doesn't come on,

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.

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.

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 was driving and the orang light came on the dash board of my 2004 LX Sorento jeep. It is to the left on the dash board. what does this mean?


Check for the overdrive buttom on the shift lever, you may have simply depressed the overdrive button and that takes it out of overdrive until you push the button again. If that's not it, please describe the shape of the light.
