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

OD Light


the OD lamp on most cars blink when there are errors.
what everyone does is plug in the scan tool and see the DTC codes.
my guess your finger trick fools the TCM .
for a while, and means nothing.
TCM are easy to fool ,its just a tiny microcomputer.
TCM is tranny shift brain.
why not connect the OBD2 scan tool to the DLC and see the Px7xxx codes spit out and then look them up in the FSM for how to diagnose them.
or get it fixed

Toyota harrier 98 model (OD off )check light on/off. Why?OD means over drive?


There should be a small pushbutton switch on your shifter, either on the center of the knob if it has the shifter on the steering wheel or if its on the center console, it should be to the side of the release button that you press when switching from park to drive. It means Over Drive is off and that will not allow to engage the last gear when driving. This is useful when hauling a heavy trailer but not good when driving normally cause it may cost you more fuel economy

My OD off Light came on what does it mean?


it means your vehicle automatic transmission has less power and it has less fuel consumption..you turn it on when you need a maximum power of the transmission.OD off is only advisable for short distance driving, but if you are going to travel on off & rough roads the "OD off" switch will turn on.The light goes off by then.

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.

Why weneed O/D on transmission if I wanna to off it it must show on panel off?


Overdrive is a very high final drive gear ratio, to save gasoline. But you should turn it off on hills or if you are going too slow. There should be an indicator light telling when it is on, but it should go off automatically if you are not in the highest regular gear, and if you are not going fast enough.

Wheres the overdrive unit and how do i test it?


I'm guessing automatic trans. look at the end of the shifter handle there should be a button on the end . if you press it a yellow light should come on saying OD OFF . and the engine rpm should increase when driving, meaning the trans came out of OD. press it again and trans will go back into OD and light goes out.
hope this helps.

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.
