SOURCE: 2001 Volvo V40 arrow warning light

Most likely the transmission range switch is failing.
Have someone check the transmission computer for codes.

SOURCE: Volvo abs lights stays on

Usually the ABS computer knows what it is doing. You may want someone to hookup a scanner to the ABS test port.
When I had my speedometer and odometer act up, it turned out to be a bad alternator. You might want to check yours.

Light by the Gear shift is blinking


Is the arrow flashing? This indicates a fault in the gearbox. If it is solid the gearbox is in winter mode or 1st gear. Try manipulating the controls to see if this changes this condition.
The blinking is telling you a code is stored in the computer. Take it to an auto-parts store and have it scanned most places do it for free. Then report back here with the code.

Go to ebay, find urself a ABS Moudle rebuild. 60-80bugs. put it back on. It ll slove ur limb home mode, speed meter drop to 0 when driving. flashing arrow. Contact volvo, buy urself a new ignition antena ring, 50bugs. and once again. look for DIY guide for installation. I replace both of them myself for less than an hour. u might need to buy some special torx for abs moudle tho. but it wont be a big deal. Hope it helps you.

The blinking arrow is an indicator that the automatic transmission is in the limp mode. Sometimes this problem will go away. Other times you must take it in and have the error code on the transmission read. This will explain what is causing the transmission to go into the limp mode. The limp mode is the same as the WINTER mode where it starts in 3rd gear.
The dash board gauges are controlled by a dimmer switch that is above the rear fog light switch which is above the headlight switch. If this dimmer switch doesn't work, then have it replaced.

My 99' volvo v70 continually flashes the traction control and abs warning light and the speedometer stops working the trip meter and the odometer go blank than all of a sudden it will start working again...


Sounds like a bad ABS control module is at least part of your problem. The symptoms are usually and ABS and TRACS light intermittent or constand and eventually your speedometer works intermittently or totally quits. This guy rebuilds/upgrades them for about $140. New ones run over $800. http://home.earthlink.net/~vicrocha/Volvo_Parts/Volvo_ABS_removal.htm

1995 volvo 960 stuck in winter mode


Where roy might have a possible source, it is most likely the park neutral switch which has started to fail. This is indicated by the shift arrow flashing on the dash. Replacement of this component is relatively difficult without a lift

Car judders when in drive also switches on cetre console with S E and W flash. also an arrow flashes on bottom right of instrument cluster


Your automatic transmission is in limp mode. It detected a problem and set itself into limp mode which is basically the same as W or WINTER mode. It's computer should have stored a code that will tell the service technician what caused the error. Sometimes shutting the engine off and restarting will reset the transmission.
