    You need to scan the system to see what's up. You may no longer be in overdrive for a reason. Also check your fuse box just in case. Fuse or switch if you're lucky.

    You may be able to score a free wiring diagram HERE

    That's where it was on my '99 Quest but the 1998 was the first generation van. Not sure about it.

    Hmmm...wonder how you test that...maybe by accessing the harness from a cover under the steering post?

    Try the Villager/Quest Yahoo Group - one post there indicates that your switch may be grounding out.
