FORD F150 2004 FX4

The overdrive light in the dash doesn't light up when I push the overdrive button on.I think the transmission is not shifting into overdrive because my gas mileage has decreased by 3.5miles to the gallon on the highway(was 17.5mi now 14.0mi) I'm thinking maybe the overdrive button is bad or the wires are disconnected.I would appreciate any advice,Thanks

    First,should I start at the O.D button and work my way to the light? How do you get at the overdrive button on the console shift?Plus is this the problem with the mileage or something else

Hi there , if the transmission is not shifting into overdrive, then the overdrive fuse had probably blown.

The fuse should be : Fuse # 29 5A Transmission overdrive control switch.

Check the fuse, and if the fuse is fine, check the overdrive wirings on the steering column.

Do not forget to leave me feedback on this, that is important for us.

Thanks.

Check uder the truck and make sure that the wires don't have any build up on or aroung them this could cause your problem. also make sure your transmission fluid level is good. and check the fuses under the hood of the truck there should be a tranmission fuse of some sort.

hope this helped
please rate well

The Transmission shifts very hard after the first shift. Check engine light is on as well as the Green overdrive light blinks off and on. Speed sensor was cleaned and even replaced.


Your on the right track. Have you scanned the PCM, what codes did you get? If not and you changed the vehicle speed sensor,(VSS) did you check the (OSS) output shaft speed sensor, it will cause torque converter lock up and hard shifting and that pesky OD light flashing. I have also found that clutch packs inside auto tranny's dry out. Ford and some aftermarket companies sell a fluid that will recondition the clutch packs.

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.

"Overdrive Off" light on dash keeps blinking

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.
