Question about 2001 Volvo V40
I have a 2001 v40 1.9 turbo and last night while driving the overdrive arrow began flashing and the check engine light came on. while accelerating from a stop it did feel like the car was in overdrive, but pushing the button didn't solve any problems. what could the problem be?
SOURCE: ENGINE MISFIRE AND SHAKING
check your wire harness on the top of the engine. Volvo must have bought harnesses from Mercedes. The insulation just cracks and disintegrates, then the wires short. Not good for an ignition system.Once they short It can fry the circuit for that cylinder in the computer. Does not set a code other than Misfire.

This is a common problem of Volvo S40. You can try this trick to turn off the flashing arrow light.
1) Turn off Engine
2) Turn key to "On" position (Not start the engine), you will see the panel light will on
3) Step on the break paddle
4) Shift the gear from "P" to "L" 10 times
5) Turn key to " Off" position
6) Now you can start the engine.
7) If doesn't work, you can repeat the procedure.
Hope this tick help

I have a 1998 V70 wagon with the same problem, my mechanic did a diagnosis and found it was one of the solenoids -whatever those are- and the fix was a replacement, Labor was about 3 hours and the part was about $150+-, total cost was under $500. That was the problem in my case. But I have also read that the solution could be a transmission rebuild, I guess depending on what part of the transmission is broken. Y.
