This morning, started the Jeep, normal routine - stereo on, hit the O/D switch and back out of the driveway. Got to the highway and noticed the light WAS NOT on and it wouldn't go into overdrive. I cruised to work trying not to break 50mph, shut it off, turned it back on and wah-la O/D light/switch not turns on and off.

Any thoughts on this? A Jeep "thing" like the security system issues or is this potentially a serious problem?

possible that your jeep like many others including mine has lost or is starting to lose the lock up band in the torque converter.

My jeep did what yours did, wouldnt go into over drive and the light was not on

But after you noticed yours not coming on the first time were you able to get it back? After I parked mine and immediately restarted it it came right back on and then it was fine again later in the afternoon.

Worked fine last night and again this morning no trouble. I'm hoping it holds out until at least Sunday.
