Asked by Jun 12, 2017 at 07:06 PM about the 1998 Ford Expedition 4 Dr XLT SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Overdrive won't turn off turned on all of a sudden
while driving and have not been able to turn off
since then on a 98 ford expedition xlt

1 Answer


Disconnecting the wires won't do it. A signal needs to be sent to the transmission to shift out of 4th gear. I would take it to a good transmission shop. I do think there is a chance that there is a wiring problem in your steering column.
