Default 1995 Dodge V10 Auto trans not going into overdrive

Fluid level good, nice and red, not burnt, pressing OD button does not work, shifting into lower gear, ect no go.

Everyone once and awhile after going 15 miles it will eventually shift into OD.

Any ideas?

Sometimes the light on the OD switch (that tells you you've turned OD off) comes on, sometimes it doesn't. Is there a place to get a schematic on this? Basically would like to know whether the switch opens or closes the circuit. In the decade of owning this truck, we've never had a need to turn the OD off, so I'd just say F the switch and rewire it to be always on.

Sounds like the o-rings went out in the overdrive housing. Its a common problem.
