Hello, the overdrive switch itself isn't working, it will not toggle off or the light works but it stays in overdrive? Trans is ok otherwise?

Ok most common issue is wit the transmission shifter on the column. The wiring for the od switch cuts cut inside the steering column cover. Sometimes it will blow the fuse in the central fuse panel for it. Remove the steering column covers behind the steering wheel. Examine the shifter and wiring coming off it. Tap out the pin that holds it to the column and see if the wiring is damaged and replace the shifter and fuse if needed. If the wiring is ok. Pop off the od switch on the end of the shifter and check for power at the two pins. One will be hot one ground. If it has power and ground the switch on the end of the shifter is no good. The shifter handle comes complete with the switch from ford or can buy the switch separately.
