OD off in town,ON on highway,lowers revs and stops the gearbox hunting between the two top gears. ON=better economy
PWR is for holding the gears in a high ratio for longer,higher revs(fun).
W is for winter, in icy conditions, pulls away in second gear helps stops wheelspin.

The error message HOLD is showing on the dash near the 4x4 lights. What is this, is it bad? What do I do? Thanks

Hi. Take a deep breath of relief. First off this is not an error message and you should not panic. On your center console just below the gear shifter and the 4WD lever is an button that has "A/T MODE" written on it. This is what engages the 3 different driving modes to best assist you depending on the road conditions you are on. If the button is depressed at the top then the "PWR" mode is being used and on your dashboard you will notice a button flashing "PWR". This means that you have selected a driving mode that will avail you more power from the engine in instances like when you are driving up steep hills or a mountain or when you require to overtake a speeding car. Be warned, fuel consumption is high in this mode. When the button is depressed at the bottom, the "HOLD' mode is in effect and on your dash board the "HOLD' light will flash. This mode is best used when starting on a slippery surface like snow. Your car will start smoothly in second gear. When the neither the button is depressed at the top or bottom, then you are in 'NORMAL" mode which is for normal driving and where the car will run smoothly and use the lest amount of fuel. Hope this helps.

I have several questions: Number 1 the initial minutes of my premio (corona) D4 2-litre engine raves at above the 1500 rev per minute but eventually returns to less than 1000 after some minutes;...

1) Yes It is normal for corona Engines to have that high rev when the engine is still cold. It automatically adjusts to the Normal Rev/min when the engine gets warm so don't worry about that.
2) The Buttons are use when you are running on road. PWR means Power meaning that you lock the car in gear Five while sprinting. MNL stands for manual transmission.
3) Econ tries to show you that you are using a higher gear like say 5, therefore your fuel consumption is now being economized and thus low consumption. Actually, its always good if you drive your car with that light on coz it saves on your fuel. It get on automatically.

I want ask there is OD light all time turn on in automatic gear, whats the problem?

Look somewhere on/near your gear selector for a button that says something like "OD" or "Performance/Economy" etc... push it and see if the light goes out.

Also, when driving, make sure you're using the gear selection closest to "N". If it's a D with a circle around it, use that.

The other option is that the OD light is indicating a problem with your transmission.

Why weneed O/D on transmission if I wanna to off it it must show on panel off?

Overdrive is a very high final drive gear ratio, to save gasoline. But you should turn it off on hills or if you are going too slow. There should be an indicator light telling when it is on, but it should go off automatically if you are not in the highest regular gear, and if you are not going fast enough.

MANU button on RAV4

The PWR button (power) is like a sports mode. It keeps in lower gears for longer so you can gain more speed. Handy for overtaking or fast lane changing. Not wise to use this all the time due to poor fuel economy.

The MANU button (manual) allows you to operate the gears manually. With MANU on and gear lever in L, it will drive in 1st. Gear lever in 2, it will drive in 2nd. Gear lever in D, it will drive in 3rd. If Overdrive is enabled then D will give you 4th gear instead.

since both the manual and aotomatic trrans have OD which do you have/ f it is a auto trans then this light is on to indicate a problem in the OD control circuit, most likely the solenoid for OD.

It has a built in code reader. It's the little black box by the drivers side hood hing. It has 6 sockets , a wire attached to it that you plug into them , and a button. Turn key on ,don't start, plug the wire into 2 and push button 2 - 3 seconds , little red next to button should light as long as button pushed.Release button , light will blink a 3 digit code . Count carefully. Repeat process again until codes repeat. # 2 socket is ignition # 6 is Fuel injection. Code 1 1 1 means system OK. To reset FI pull the engine control / fuel pump fuse . Think it's 6 on your car. Code meanings can be found on line ( auto X ray)

Tne meaning of PWR on tha dashboard of daewoo lanus

PWR (Power) is the same thing as your OD (Over-Drive) which enables your car to run using the extra gear that is provided for its movement especially when you drive above 60mp.

But it is adviseable you turn it on.

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.

1989 Lincoln Towncar 4 spd automatic with OD, will not go to OD

There is no OverDrive gear in the transmission. The fourth speed is achieved by locking up the torque converter while in third gear creating a input shaft to output shaft ratio of more than 1 (the infamous over drive). If you do not feel it shifting three times while accelerating up to 45 mph then there is probably a situation with the torque converter.
