sometimes it gets hot like when your pullin a trailer and will jump out...other times its the overdrive solenoid(sp?) thats goin to crap..which at worst could be an early sign that your tranny is crappin out on you. when i bought my dodge it was like that, good for 15 miles or so then it would jump out of o/d, i ended up gettin a rebuilt tranny put it..at the dealers expense of course :D

That ain't good. I'd get it looked at asap. One thing I have noticed is if you have the cruise on and it's really windy, Sometimes it will want to drop out of overdrive to maintain speed.

Eek, I agree with getting it looked at. That is usually the first sign of your tranny going to the crapper.

this is the first time it did it the light on the O/D button came on and like i said earlier it is a base model so no cruise control i know that the button for the O/D is broken it works but push to hard it goes into the dash

i am goin to get another switch so maybe (hopfully) thats what the problem is thanks for all the help so far

Good luck. When mine started coming out of overdrive on its own, the tranny was bad. Well, I already knew it was bad for a while, but when it started to get real bad it would overheat quickly and lock out the overdrive.
