take a look at the info below. since the switch is normally open, it appears that you can eliminate the switch pod by disconnecting it.

but if you have meter or test light and can use it, you can check / eliminate the wiring/ switch

Do a search for cascade transmission on YouTube. It's likely that the overdrive piston spring is broken. It's an easy fix for about $20.

All you do is drop the pan and remove a few bolts. They have a video that shows the whole process.
