I figured it out by replacing the 4th gear switch with one that is Normally closed vs the normally open....You can buy them at napa and they come out of an 88 chevy pick-up transfer case about $20.00....Then there's the wiring fun, which is long in the tooth and a heartache to explain!!!
Run's great having overdrive only engage in 4th because you dont have any thump or feel as it comes on when you are just hitting 4th. You still have the switch option on the console.
