It means the car is set so that it doesn't shift into the overdrive gear. This is typically done during towing.
OD stands for Over Drive. There is a button the left side of the A/T shifter, pressit to get the over drive in. If over drive is off, the car will consume more gas staying in 3rd gear all the time.
When you see the OD off indicator on the dashboard, you drive the car with higher rpm. It gives you extra performance but shortens the lifetime of the engine.
NO, OD off is mainly for increased braking/control when towing.
The OD button means "Over Drive", off or on.
there is a button on the gearshift or on 1 of the shifter rods on steering column
If "OD Off" is lit, then your overdrive is off.
What is the location of OD Button of Camary Car?
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. If you push the button/switch the light will change to OD or OD on (may even go out) then you will be in overdrive. Being in overdrive is good except for steep hills or pulling a heavy load.
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.
Always on, unless you are traveling down a steep hill where you need the extra braking power the engine will provide. You might also want to turn it off if you are pulling a heavy load, which is highly unlikely in a car. OD will improve your gas mileage. Turn it off and your mileage will suffer.
have vehicle scanned to determine problem
od light is the overdrive unit on the transmission. If you drive on the freeway you should have the overdrive unit on, on the streets the unit should be off. The light usually doesn't have anything to do with overheating. I would look for some other issue.
