No overdrive?


The overdrive works in serial with the indicator light on the instrument cluster,( OD) light, from here there a positive that feed one section on the control. Fix the short on the dash cluster then your overdrive become to work properly

Overdrive off light. Please assist. What does it mean when it comes on the dash board on the Toyota Nadia D4.Should it appear on the dash board or not to show it is off.


My logic says, when it should light when the gearing is in overdrive, the light should say, overdrive ON.
To drive economically you should drive in overdrive when it allows you to.

How does the overdrive work and whats it for


Overdrive is your highest gear used at freeway speeds to reduce engine RPM and enhance fuel economy. If you have a towing option button (usually on dash or shift handle) make sure that it is not activated, otherwise you will not get the benefit of overdrive.

An O/D off light is on in my 1998 Toyota Rav4


On the gear shift is a button to turn on and off the overdrive. She pushes the button and now it is off. The RPM will change noticeably between on and off.

Fuel light on Dash board alight


fuel lights these days in modern cars come on for more reasons than just having little fuel left in the tank. toyotas electronics are very reliable and not too complex. but this could indicate a couple of reasons 1) the fuel filter in the tank is dirty. 2) the sensor for the fuel capacity is defected. and 3) the wrong fuel is messing about the injector system.
a diagnostic machine should locate the problem very quickly. good luck

Orange light that comes up in the middle of the dash board.


This warning light indicates a problem with the rear lights (Brake lights, Reverse lights, Number plate light)... Normally it is set off by a bulb that needs to be replaced but it has been documented that using incorrect Watt rated bulbs can also trigger the warning light. It has also been noticed that faulty wiring may trigger the it too.

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.

A light on dash saying o/d off came on


There is a small button on the gear shifter. This is the OverDrive switch. When the button is depressed "IN", the overdrive system is active, and the light on the dash is off. When the button is OUT, the overdrive system is de-activated, and the light on the dash is illuminated. The OverDrive is basically the final shift of the transmission, which gives you maximum fuel economy. When the light on the dash is ON, the OD is "OFF", the transmission will not make its final shift, and will lower your fuel economy. It is best to leave the button IN, and have the OD system active. Hope this helps, and Thanks for Choosing FixYa. The graciousness of a "FixYa" rating for my solution would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for allowing me to help you with your issue.
