The OD light on dash stands for Overdrive. There is a button (usually) on the end of the turn signal lever. Some cars the button or switch is on the dash.

Many Ford automobile and pickup transmissions have an overdrive function. Most can be turned on and off with a push-on, push-off switch, . The lighted OD-off or indicates that the overdrive function is disabled, turned off. If, while the vehicle is running, you push the button adjacent to the indicator that says OD-off, you will turn on/enable the overdrive function. When the overdrive function is enabled, the OD-off lighted indicator goes of, and there is no indicator when the overdrive is engaged.
