Why cause my overdrive light to come on? It
works fine until the Trans over temp light
comes on and then the overdrive button
don't work

1 Answer

Tom Demyan

Since the trans temp light is on, the O/D light is on probably due to the system protecting the trans from further damage but depending on how long you have been driving the jeep with the trans temp light on, the damage might already have been done. Heat is the killer or transmissions.
