It is not suggested strip and twist wires. Better take it to an authorized service station to check what causes the problem.Is it OVERDRIVE SWITCH or CRUISE CONTROL MODULE faulty?
Over drive switch has three points. (5 to 4 selects "ON" or 5 to 6 selects "OFF").
Right click on following schematic, "save picture as" to a location in your PC so you have a ZOOM IN view.

Light indicating 'o/d off' just came on. No other problems.thanks jim L


Hello, welcome to FIxYa.

The OD Off light has been activated by someone moving the small square button on the side of the shifter. This button allows the OD to engage, or is prevented (OD Off). To rectify this, depress the button on the side of the shifter.

I hope that my assistance proves beneficial to you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My son press some of the buttons and it displays "O/D OFF". please tell me how to turn on O/D. Early response would highly appreciated. REgards Jacob Francis


Hello, welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

The OD OFF light has been turned on via the small square button on the side of the shifter handle. This button should normally be in the 'depressed' position, which allows the OD to engage. The OD OFF light is illuminated on the inst panel to alert you that the OD has been manually disengeged. The OD is the final shift of the transmission, thusly giving you maximum fuel mileage.

To rectify this, press the button on the side fo the shifter handle.

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.

Does anyone know what the orange arrow light means on the instrument panel of an older volvo sedan?


Means the overdrive is disengaged. There should be a button on the side of the shifter. If pressing this does not engage the OD, then you may need to replace the OD solenoid.

What are these buttons for? e t c drive & side of shifter


The ETC switch is a transmission control device. When it is not active, the transmissions shifts normally. When the ETC is engaged, it alters the shift points.
Example: the 1-2 upshift occurs normally between 18-20 mph. Now, say you are towing something, or are carrying a heavy load...engage the ETC, and the trans computer will "hold" the 1-2 upshift until 22-24 mph. It is just for that, prolonging the shift points, due to load.

The switch on the side of the shifter is for the Overdrive. Engaged (the OD light is off) the transmission shifts into overdrive. This saves you gas. When the button is dis-engaged (the OD OFF light is on) , the transmission does NOT shift into overdrive. It is best to leave the overdrive ON, and the ECT OFF to obtain maximum fuel mileage. I hope this has answered your question. Please feel free to comment back if you have any other questions. Thanks for chosing FixYa for assistance.
