Just to clarify, after disconnecting, I will always be in overdrive?
So I could techincally somehow rewire this if there is a break in line, and/or relocate the o/d switch?

Yes.

The control module looks for a momentary signal from the switch to toggle the O/D on off state. When the car is turned off it should revert to O/D on state until the button is pushed. When the green light on the dash is off the O/D is on.

As for relocating the switch this is relatively easy. In fact most after market shifter ***** don't have the whole for the O/D button so you just add amomentary switch to the dash or console.

I've seen them on the drivers side of the shifter surround. Sort of a mirror of the cig lighter. Another option would be to use one of the little change holder openings.

If you wanted to be fancy you could place a convertible top switch in a change holder opening and wire up one side to toggle the O/D. The downside would be the cost of that particular switch.

Update, got it all back together, sure enough, I had pulled the shift head so far up, that it pulled the wires clean out of the connector under the console. Did some testing, taped them up and left wires coming out of bottom of console in case I want to hookup O/D later. There was another connector right under the shifter, just out of curiosity, does anyone know what that goes to? Lastly, after all this, I still dont know if my "cant get out of park" issue is solved, I guess I'll find out in the next couple days.

I'll have the console apart tomorrow I'll look for the other connector and see if I can figure that out.

I had to make a replacement for the plastic piece that goes around the shifter and has the gear selector indicator. Mine was split in two and so were both of the ones in the junk yard.

Nooo, I can get out of park fine. Every time I put it in park it'll blow the fuse. I tried a 20 in it and it work for a few weeks then now as soon as I turn the key on it'll pop a 20 & autozone people told me to try a 25 which I did and it'd pop it only when car is put in park.

Well you really shouldn't put a larger than called for fuse in something because they are blowing for a reason....though I get miffed and tend to do it on occasion. in my old Corolla I got so tired of it I actually wrapped a blown fuse in tin foil and stuck it back in haha. Thats a fire hazard btw.

I can tell you it's a short or grounding issue but Id be no help in tracing it.
