O/D light not illuminating, and O/D not turning off

On my 2001 7.3 CC Dually my overdrive light on the gear selector will not illuminate in gear. It does illuminate when in park however. Also while in gear it does not down shift (turn off overdrive) any help with this problem would be much appreciated! :dunno:

The O/D wire on the shift column can get pinched from time to time. Probably why it works in park, but not when you have the gear selector in another position.

Picture for the wires to look for


Thanks for the post.

There are two wires that are revealed once the shroud is removed on the sterring column.

Both of mine were sliced clean through.

I little solder, shrink wrap (if you have it) and it's good to go.

Sorry, no picture.. although I do have some. I just don't have anywhere on the web to place them to link to here.

message me your email address and I will be happy to provide.
