overdrive light issue, need help please...

Greetings all-
Up until just this past week, my "O/D Off" light had been working perfectly. While pulling my camper last Thurs, I discovered I had no "O/D Off" light and the transmission indeed remained in overdrive. I know the bulb/wiring is good as I can shift into park, and then the light comes on when pressing the button and a driving test also indicates the overdrive was turned off if I shift into park first.

Anyone else experience the failure of this O/D Off switch while "on the fly"? Just wanted some info before I go visit my mechanic.

is it flashing? or just not working?

not working unless in Park, then working fine...no flashing.

How heavy is that camper? Towing in OD cant be good for the trans, unless its built...

My O/D light will turn off if I turn my lights on. But shows up when the lights are off. O/D button still works either way, just no light indicating it's off when my lights are on.
