Maybe not what you are looking for, but you can hardwire the OD switch if you don't mind pushing the button often.

To turn off the OD the switch sends power to the solenoid on the side of the transmission. With the switch in the off position, check for power at the plug. If none, check fuse, # 14 I think.

Have the same problem and my light goes on and off! lol   I have checked everything too..  You understand that the constant OD is the state where there is no power.  So if we hear the "click" then maybe the pintle is stuck inside where the solenoid is and not wanting to release back ( that is what was told to me at the trans place)..  I  asked them if it was possible that the OD band was too tight and they just shrugged their shoulders.  Time to take it somewhere else I think...  Please PM me if you found the answer! ^_^

My last trans clicked, and light worked, but would always be in OD. I have read there are 2 seals on it, and if a seal goes bad, fluid just goes around it and OD stays on
