O/D button not working.... can i disconnect?

I am having some bugs with my truck, and i think it has something to do with my overdrive button (the cables that go to the shifter).....

can i just disconnect it? any harm in that?

The truck wont have any load on it, so i wont have to drop it out of O/D.....

or will disconnecting the switch cause the truck to go into some sort of limp mode?

Thanks in advance

yep- replaced mine tonight super easy and works as should now-
Dependng on production date you may get the whole shift lever with switch and harnessMine happened to fall into that category as I was expecting to get button only and have to fish harness in levermine cost less than 40 bux..

I'm having this exact problem now as I type. I just had a world class 4R100 builder do a stage II build and told him about the OD button basically becoming inert. His thoughts were to replace the entire shifter handle. I already replaced the OD endcap button with zero results.

So basically changing out the entire shifter assembly is easy and fairly cheap correct?
