Well, on this 'particular' point I have to disagree with you...
I am "ALWAYS" and ever driving with OD in the "ON" position..with light NOT lite...
I NEVER EVER drive in 3rd gear [OD light lite] "" PERIOD""
And I always distinctly remember going down hills and having the engine drop into the idle mode..
And this I have done ALL the time......
Admittedly, my ""THIRD"" transmission doesn't seem to be activating the same way...
SOOO !!! Just maybe the ""ORIGINAL" transmission was a piece of crap coming out of the factory...
