Hey guys, so my overdrive works flawlessly but the red overdrive light works intermittently. It usually works when i first switch the overdrive on but after a few minutes it will shut off and sometimes when i turn it on, it doesnt turn on at all. Any ideas what this could be? Thank guys!

I think Craig300 has identified the most probable cause. However, if that is not the problem. The bulb itself could be loose in the holder. Also, the wire from the OD switch goes to the interlock on the transmission top and then to the solenoid. This part is clearly intact since your OD is working. Either from the OD switch or a point somewhere along the wiring harness between the OD switch and the interlock there is a wire that goes up to the instrument panel to light the OD light. The connection at the switch or the tap point may be loose causing the intermittent operation.
