Hook the speed sensors up with the correct wiring to the computer. This way, no special switch is needed to get in/out of overdrive, just pull back the shifter one notch, it's out of OD, push it forward one notch, it's back into OD.
I didn't do anything special to get the OD to work, just hooked up all the sensors and made sure the linkage lined up correctly. My shift set up in the car is P-R-N-OD-D-L.

Hmm. I don't know about that then. Like I said, I'm not sure exactly what the speed sensor does as far as the AOD is concerned. Just make sure your TV cable is adjusted correctly.

An AOD is not electronically controlled so there is no computer. That speed sensor is a pulse generator for an electronic speedometer. if i'm right unbolt it and keep it for now, this is where your speedometer cable is bolted into. AOD's use a TV cable which must be adjusted correctly or the trans is dead in a few miles of driving. TV means throttle valve and dictates pump pressures and such which the trans needs to know to avoid slipping and burning up clutches. Go to Baumannengineering.com and read up on this, I have used 4 of their computers on 4 cars my brothers and I have built with no trouble at all, it is a very educational site and will answer many of your questions far better than I can, good luck
