my 1995 5.8l e4od, the overdrive off light comes on as soon as you turn the ignition on and stays on. trans shifts normally and will even down shift when you hit the button and then shifts into overdrive when you press it again. So basically it all works normally but the light won't go off. Anyone know what might be wrong?
Mine used to flash..checked fluid level and it was corrected..stopped flashing...LOL..
Its different then when it flashes, trans operates as normal. Checked the fluid and its fine. Its just annoying not being able to get that light to go off, but one has t think something has got to be wrong, just don't want to do damage if I can fix it.
I am going to clean or change the VSS (Variable Speed Sensor) this weekend and see if it helps better shifts. Cheap part and probally need cleaning or replacment. So far Truck runs better everyday..I think it must have sat for a long period before I bought it.
A flashing o/d light is a code telling you what is wrong. I don't know what the codes mean, but I think there is a thread or two that address this issue. Not sure what it means when the light stays on and does not flash.

I toke mine to my buddies shop and the code was for the input sensor it was getting low input and we checked it and just so happened the plug was cracked got some handy electrical tape and wrapped it good and it's fixed great.... if you take it to a shop they can probably tell you which sensor is not working right for free
