Volvo s80 t6 shifting problem

When i first started out this morning it stayed in first until 5000 rpm before shifting to 2nd. Then the car wouldn't accelerate past 40 Km/hr (no missing or sputtering just no response from the accelerator). I switched to manual shifting and it wouldn't go past 3rd gear. I had almost given up; I backed up a little ways and decided to try again and everything started to work fine.
Any idea what this is?

The cheap fix: Speed sensor connected to the Transmission Control Module (TCM). That screws up the engine control module and could throw you into limp home mode. Expensive fix: Transmission control module. Start with the speed sensor. Suggest that to your mechanic and get a second opinion before changing out the TCM. It's a simple plug and swap, but the module is expensive. I bought a spare on Ebay for my Volvo for $10. The TCU, I believe, lives under the right front kick panel, at least that's where it is on my 740.

1999 Volvo S80 T6, Starts blower on its own.


If you are talking about the thermo electric cooling fan, its operation is independent of the car's electical system. It is switched on and off by the engine temperature. When you park, the engine heat soaks upward to heat the thermostat turning the fan on. It will run until the engine cools down and the thermostat switches it off.

1999 Volvo S80 T6 Shifting Problems


Most likely your mechanic is right. The reason it will shift normally for a little while is because when it does detect the problem it goes into a limp home mode. When you reset the battery it takes it out of limp home mode until it sees the problem again.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...
