Its a good idea to have the OD off lit up while driving in the city,it just keeps the transmission from shifting into 4th gear in the city and alot less wear and tear on your tranny from unwanted shifting,if you are over 40 mph just hit the button and let it go into 4th gear for the highway or a higher mph area,hope this helps

2005 G5 trans shifts from 1st to 2nd to 3rd but not last shift ( overdrive or coverter lockup). Rpm about 200rpm to high on highway.


This is a silly simple question, but is the an OD off light that is turned on on your dash? Many cars have a button on the column or shift stick that turns off the over-drive. Sometimes people hit that on accident and turn off their over-drive. MOST cars have an indicator light either on that switch or on the dashboard that lets you know that's happening. Check this first. If there is no button to turn off over-drive and no other indicator, it's probably time to visit your mechanic or trans shop.

OD light comes on is it save to drive on what does it mean


OD is over drive for your transmission,it's also call a passing gear,when ever u go to pass someone and u get on the gas that is your OD kicking in it just regears your tanny there should be a button on the dash or on the steering column to turn this off,it shouldn't hurt your car you will just burn more gas

Tyring to understand the od off light when i push the switch it lights up on dash and push it again it goes off should it not be lit up on dash under normal driving conditions


THE OD LIGHT SHOULD ONLY BE LIT UP WHEN THE OD IS TURNED OFF LIKE WHEN YOUR TOWING. WHEN TOWING YOU DONT WANT THE OD ON .PUTS TOO MUCH STRESS ON TRANS. UNDER NORMAL OPPERATION THE LIGHT SHOULD BE OFF...

OD light on dash is always on


When you start your car and see the OD Off light come on momenterialy, it only comes on to let you know that the light on the dashboard is working. If you do nothing, you have the OD on.

If you press the button on the gearshift, the OD will turn off and the light on the dash should light showing that OD is off. Press the button again, and the light should go off showing the OD is on.

Under normal driving conditions, the OD should be on and the light on the dash should be off.

So remember, when OD light is off, the OD is on.

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 have a light on my dash that says o/d off


i assume that you have a sentra 1997 automatic transmission. OD orange light on your dash means that your overdrive is not engaged meaning your sentra is not on fuel efficient mode.

solution: in your automatic stick shift, driver side is a button just below the T bar. press that button until the OD light dissapears on your dash. you're now in overdrive mode.

What is the od off light mean?


Transmission Overdrive Off. Likely a push button switch on the dash to control this; some driving conditions are better coped with without overdrive(more power for towing, etc) but ordinarily you would want OD on for economy.

2000 ford explorer the overdrive light came on, what does that mean?


Is this the light on the dash notifing you that you hit the button to turn the O.D. off that you're talking about? I have a 98 and my button is located in the end of the shift lever. I have hit it several times accidently and noticed the light in the dash coming on. All you have to do is push the button back in and your vehicle will once again be in O.D. which is where you want to be except when you are off roading it. Overdrive cuts your engine revolutions by 1/3 thus giving you better gas milage on the highway.
I hope this helps you and please don't forget to rate my advice.
Thanks!
