What does "OD Off" mean?


Asked by lmarr Feb 06, 2008 at 10:28 AM about the 2001 Hyundai Accent GL

Question type: General

My car just had a light go on that reads, "OD Off". What does that mean? What can I do to make the light turn off?

"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.

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