Which dash light, you have a few?

The dash light with a arrow lit up. I believe it is for me to shift into overdrive. I thank you for your help. Steve

You've hit a button on the gear shift. Sorry my car is not here now so I can't go get an exact description of the location. But look around on the shifter handle.

Here is a great write up - including advanced trouble-shooting. The button is intended to keep you from going into overdrive when towing.

There is a button on the shifter handle, but the button does nothing. The fuses are good. Help, Steve
