Question about 1991 Honda Accord

Stuck in Overdrive

Car runs great, but every since I replaced the battery, I have been stuck with the green light and transmisson overdrive. Can anyone tell me how to override the situation. The button on the shifter is non-responsive.

    My overdrive is randomly turning on and off and the on/off button is non-responsive. I had my battery replaced a few months ago.

its a Hydramatic.
here are the OD words off the 46h page

Overdrive Control Switch
The overdrive control switch is located in the instrument
panel. In the On position, automatic shifts
into fourth gear overdrive will occur. In the Off position,
the switch overrides the powertrain control module
preventing a shift to overdrive fourth gear range.
The switch has an indicator light that illuminates
when overdrive is turned off. The switch also resets
when the ignition key is turned to the OFF position
so that the automatic overdrive feature is restored.
The use of fault codes is employed to help diagnose
the electronic components that operate the overdrive
unit and torque converter clutch.

Sounds like your transmission or lockup converter is slipping. The slipping causes heat and it is downshifting out of overdrive as a built-in protection strategy. Get the transmission looked at ASAP before you get stranded because it's stuck in a downward spiral right now. The problem could be caused by a stuck solenoid, which is a relatively cheap fix, but the more you drive it like this, the more you're working toward a full, expensive rebuild.

Car "bucking"


Are you pulling a trailer or have a heavy load - you should not drive in overdrive in those conditions. You will eventually ruin your transmission.

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.

no not related in the transmisson the is a forlk that moves in and out when you pull the gear shifter toward you that allows you to move from each gear as you release the gear shift the forlk is released and this is what keeps the car in a certain gear, then this becomes miss lined the gear indacator will be off usually by one gear.( eample selctor shows D but its actually in N) the forlk is held in place by a screw with a sleve and when the sleve cracks or breaks the forlk will get stuck or locked so you can't move from gear to gear unfortunitly this is internal of the transmisson and not a back yard repair
