You don't say whether it is a manual or Automatic trans ( they both have an electric overdrive). Assuming it is an Auto trans the problem is most likely the Orange colored OD relay to the left and behind the Glove box. Or the push switch on the gear selector may have an open circuit but less likely.
There is a small button on the stick used to put it from park to drive. This button puts it in overdrive, typically used on a highway when passing and some extra juice is needed. It should only be used then, and if the orange arrow is on, press the button to turn it off.
