O/D (Overdrive) Off Indicator Light
I believe the O/D light should stay in the lighted position, but my son is telling me that it should be off unless I need extra power on the road. If it's lit, doesn't that mean the overdrive is NOT engaged? I hope I am not running around town with the overdrive constantly engaged. My owner's manual says "This light will illuminate when the O/D button has been selected....duh. But should it be on or off for regular day-to-day driving???
You don't get more power with the overdrive on, it is for gas mileage out on the highway. When the overdrive is on the light should be on. Otherwise the light is off. I feel it is best to have the overdrive off when town driving, up to 50 mph so the trany is not lugging.
