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.

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.

Should my od button be lit in the off position


It should not be lit when the togle button is off. If you press it again does the light stay on?
It could be an issue with the dash light itself or the OD switch may not be working.

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...

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.

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.

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.
