Re: Overdrive light


I would have thought that when the light is on, it means your overdrive is on.
This is what you want if travelling at 100k as your revs will be less with the overdrive on.
Just double check on the rev counter, lower revs mean less petrol being used.

Dash light on means over-drive is off.

Re: Overdrive light


Overdrive is like an extra high range gear. Driving with it on mean you want that extra gear. If you turn it off (the light comes on on the dash when the overdrive is OFF), you will notice the revs go up and torque increases because it is like dropping it down a gear. The indicator on the dash actually reads O/D OFF

This is especially useful when going up hill and it keeps changing up and down gears all the time, you flick the switch and it holds it in the lower torquier gear until you get up the top of the hill. Good for towing as well.

You will notice an increased use of fuel is you run your car with the overdrive off all the time.
