Aerio: overdrive when she pushes the O/D button..activates

Resolved Question:

My niece says her Aerio won't go into overdrive when she pushes the O/D button. Is there a fuse that activates the O/D or another simple fix for this?

Neal : Is the light going on and off when she pushes the button?

Neal : Then it is not fuse. Is she familiar with car?
JACUSTOMER-8mcue4cm- :

Yes, she's had it for over a year. Her husband says it's a 2003, he thinks.

Neal : They need to check the fluid level and make are it is not low and make sure the transmission fluid looks and smells normal. If this does not resolve the issue it will take a diagnostic at the dealer or a trans shop to determine the cause. There is no common issue like that with those.
JACUSTOMER-8mcue4cm- :

I saw where another guy on the Aerio forum said he'd had a relay going out that caused his to do it, but after replacing it the last time, that didn't fix it. Something must have been causing the relay to go. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX that.

JACUSTOMER-8mcue4cm- :

Would you suggest replacing the relay if it's cheap?

Neal : The problem was probably causing the relay to fail.
Neal : You can try it they are not much.
JACUSTOMER-8mcue4cm- :

That's what I figure, too. Maybe high voltage or something causing that. thanks.
