Look a bit closer, it says O/D off (overdrive) It means either your switch is screwing up, or your transmission is defaulting into 3rd gear only (no 4th)

Seeing as you're having issues getting the shifter to change, I would start there.. Could be the shifter, linkage or trans range sensor are messed up..

If it is trans, it would be something electronic setting the light.. Best way to tell is scan for codes, If O/D light is on due to an electrical issue rather than mechanical (linkage/etc) it should have a code to help you pinpoint the problem..
