What if the button will not go off even when pushed? Is this usually something serious or a dummy light issue?

"OD" is referring to the OverDrive function of your transmission. This is used for highway driving to conserve fuel and achieve better fuel economy. "OD Off" is telling you that the OverDrive has been turned off. This is usually done by a button on the gear shifter or a particular gear shift position marked with "OD". If you don't know where this can be found on your console reference your owners manual or call your local dealer.

Not really answer but to say thank you for solving my problem. I saw this light and was so worried thinking of how to send the car to a mechanic but after reading from dvigano my problem is solved completely.
