Default 04' Edge 4x4 wont shift into overdrive

hey guys, i have a 2004 ranger edge 4x4 with the 3.6 litre motor and automatic tranny. everything works fine on it, and it seems to shift into everything else fine. when i hit the overdrive button and im cruising at 70 it tries to shift, like the rpms drop, and then go back up to about 3000, then down to 2000 and back and forth. it will continue to do that until i hit the button again. anyone have any ideas on what it might be? any help would be much appreciated, since i have to drive long distances sometimes it really sucks cruising at 3000 rpm and gets about 14mpg

Does the O/D light come on in the gauge cluster?

the o/d light could be flashing you a code, could be a blown fuse, happened to my sisters roommates f150

If you wanna check the fuse it is #20 in the passenger side kick panel

no the O/D light doesnt flash or even come on. i checked the fuse and it was fine. its weird because it works just fine until you get to cruising speed and it keeps trying but it just wont do it. would it show a code even if there arent any lights on?
