Question about 1994 Volvo 850
Hi i have 1994 volvo 850 turbo auto.
i have a lamp showing that lamp it light up when the winter starting mode is engaged or if gears 3 or l.
bat when the lamp start flashing and i will like to know if you can help me .
thanks mine keeps on flashing when i start the car, and it seems to impact my transmission in that it has a delayed reaction. anyone help?!?
When the arrow light is flashing it means the car is in what they call "limp home mode" its supposed to reduce power output in order to prevent further damage to the vehicle. usually kicks in when you're "hot rodding" the car for a long period of time. however i have no idea why it would come on if you just shifted from 3 to L unless the computer felt you were endangering the transmission
