Well since the car engages the gears are probably good. The first thing i would suggest is to change the transmission filter and oil out and see if that makes it go away. If that doesn't work then there is more than likely a problem with your transmission and would be hard to pinpoint if it were just a sensor or something deeper. Wish i could be of more help!

    my trans. was rebuilt about 2 months ago. what about the sensors on the rear wheels could that affect the overdrine off light.

    ok well that's good. Has the problem been like that since the rebuild or just recently? I don't want to insult anyones intelligence but i have seen where fluid has not been put back in the parts that have been worked on. The rear wheels should not have anything to do with it, if anything it could be off the transfer case.

Why is a green light flashing ( OD OFF) on the lower right side of the dash ? This is where the orange air bag light comes on when starting the car.


A flashing OD light is telling you the overdrive is off and there may be a problem with the engine or transmission.
The computer turns the overdrive off to try to prevent damage to both.

Take to local auto parts store and they will usually run codes for free and from there you can find the most likely source of the problem area.

Check for a transmission speed sensor fault (OBDII scan). Loss of speed sensor signal will result in no torque converter lock up, and no overdrive. Also transmission filter should have been changed at 80,000 miles. Age of your vehicle(1994) warrants the filter service. Transfer case (4WD) needs to be serviced as well.

When should the overdrive button on a 1995 Cougar be utilized and is it harmful to the transmission to drive this car in overdrive in the city?


I don't believe it will hurt anything to use it in the city unless it says not to in the owners manual. Over drive is ment to be used for highway driving. Myself i don't use it in the city just on the open road.
