O/D off button

I have a '01 4wd auto and when I push the overdrive off button it blows a fuse and the truck does nothing. Think I could have a short? Replace the fuse and all is back to normal.

The wire for the shift lever od button is shorted out on the column. Remove the upper column cover and check the wire out.you will have to replace entire shifter arm for repair!!

I pulled the wires out and used the wires in a network cable as a replacement. Worked great, still going 6 months later. Running new wires is the quickest/cheapest fix.
