I can almost guarantee you that the gear position sensor is bad. I've replace 30 or 40 of these on 960's for these very same complaints! If you check the codes for the transmission, it will give a 3-1-3 or P0705 code. You will however need a code reader to check this on a 1997 model.

That code is for the engine coolant temperature sensor. You need to have a look at the connection to it, if it's good, replace the sensor. This is an important engine sensor, they are usually mounted somewhere near the front of the engine in the water jacket, exposed to coolant flow so make sure the engine is cold when you change it.

SOURCE: What does "service" light mean?
The service light comes on every 5000 miles to remind you to change the oil & check fluids. It is reset with a special tool that connects to the OBDII connector.
