If the over temp light goes on, the transmission is supposed to avoid overdrive in its effort to cool itself by increasing fluid flow. If the screen for the fluid is plugged or there's an issue with the pump system, the fluid will not be able to circulate properly. There may also be an issue with the temperature sensor within the transmission. Neither one is an overly expensive fix.

The od light comes on the the transmission temp warning comes on in my 2000 dodge durango


Check transmission fluid level. Is there a manual Overdrive engagement button? If so you probably have a worn out wire from the switch to overdrive solenoid. I had a similar problem different car. Solution was the "spiral plastic" wire cover to cover the opening on the control wire and easy to get on the wire without having to cut and rejoin wires. Was supposed to be temporary but has lasted about 5 years. This may also be the issue with the Temp warning light. The wires may be parallel to each other. Hope this helps, good luck.

I have a dodge 4x4 1500 the trans temp light comes as well as the over drive off light when vehicle is at an idle i then lose overdrive. vehicle is only at an idle for 2 or 3 min. havent even started to...


There is a check valve in the transmission cooling lines on these trucks. This valve is in the line near the radiator on the passenger side. This valve can get stuck and cause the Trans to overheat due to no trans cooler flow. When these Transmission get hot overdrive goes out. Located this valve take the line apart near it and use a small screwdriver and try to free it up. It is spring loaded and should push in and spring out easily. If you can't you must replace it. Don't drive it like that or you could ruin the transmission

Trans temp and od light is on what does this mean


Transmission Temperature light only comes on when the transmission has reached the operating limits and tells the temp sender to send a warning. The OD light is the Over Drive light.
There may be several reasons causing the Trans. Temp light to come on. The first would be if the transmission is low on transmission fluid.
Place you vehicle on a level surface. You can check this by letting the vehicle warm up to normal operating temperature, then open the hood and remove the transmission dipstick and wipe it clean with a paper towel or shop rag. Then reinsert it and remove it again, holding it horizontal look at the end of the dipstick. You will see a level mark and a add mark. If it's on the add mark then you need to add transmission fluid. Do not add more then 8 ounces at a time, before rechecking the level.
If the fluid is full, smell the fluid on the dipstick, does it have a burnt smell?
If the fluid has a burnt smell or it's a dark brown color then you will need to change the transmission fluid and filter.
The Overdrive light is on due to high transmission temp or because the Overdrive button has been pushed. ( If equipped with a manual overdrive button)
When the transmission is hot it will turn the overdrive off to increase the speed and pressure of the transmission fluid to help cool the transmission.
So this problem will go hand in hand if you find a problem with the transmission fluid.
You can also take you vehicle to you local auto parts store and have them check the engine codes. There may be another problem causing this issue.

Overdrive cuts off buy itself while driving


when the transmission overheat light (this is for the fluid) comes on the transmission control module pulls the trans out of OD to try and cool it down, this is called failure mode strategy, it is built into the programming of the control module, the signal from the trans is most likely incorrect, but the module doesn't know that, replace the transmission fluid temperature sensor.
