The 3 buttons on the sun visor are the homelink transmitter which you can program to open and close your garage door or security gate. The button with the "D" on it is the Overdrive on/off switch. You would really only need to mess with the overdrive if you are towing or are up in the mountains. If you press it otherwise, you will just notice the transmission won't break into the highest gear (the lower numerical ratio number) and therefore you will have higher RPM's and poorer gas mileage. It won't break anything- there is a light that will come on and let you know if the tranny will shift into overdrive if you don't notice how the tranny shifts while you drive.

for the post nixt.
The D Button is clear, thx. Could you also explain how I program the "homelink transmitter"...do I just have to push and hold some buttons or must I visit the jeep service?

I haven't programmed my homelink transmitter because I'm still in college and I live in an apartment. I still have my old separate openers to open the security gate and garage for when I go home to visit relatives. However, as soon as I get a chance I'll grab my owner's manual and see if I can get you the instructions on how to program the transmitter.

From the manual:
Training the Universal Transmitter
1. Turn off the engine.
2. Press the two outside buttons until the red light begins to flash to erase the previous codes.
3. Choose a button to train. Place the controller within one inch of the transmitter and push the buttons of both transmitters. The red light will begin to flash slowly.
4. When the red light begins to flash rapidly release both buttons. Your transmitter is now trained.

There is a different method to train controllers with multiple security code systems which is longer and would be a hell of a lot for me to type. If you need the steps for the multiple security code system, get back to me.
