What is winter mode


Andrew, in automatic equipped vehicles with winter/wet mode selection, I believe it starts vehicle off in a higher gear to prevent wheel spin. Your manual should explain what winter/wet mode is.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I have a s90 volvo the arrow has been comin on now its seems as if the car is stuck in winter mode or low gear tell me whats wrong


Try soaking the switch with WD40 and working it back and forth, on and off. Do this with the key off then try with the key on. The switch may just be corroded.

I'm guessing that your GearTronic function (the 'manual' mode) isn't working, nor is the Winter mode working (starting in 2nd or 3rd gear).

The gear selector module under the shifter is most likely the culprit, but using VIDA/DiCE (the Volvo car/computer interface) will tell you more. A local Volvo shop or dealer will have that.
I'm not sure if they're coded to the car, or if you can snag one cheaply from the junkyard from a similar year car and swap them..?!

I'd try disconnecting the battery for an hour first. Turn off the ignition, LEAVE THE CAR ALONE FOR 15 MINUTES and then disconnect the NEGATIVE battery post for 30 minutes.

When you connect the battery again, make sure you FIRST turn the ignition to position II - ignition on. Connect the cable, then turn off the ignition.

It might resolve a temporary problem, or the issue comes back, but at least you know it wasn't something really simple.

Check engine light car feels like its in high gear


The problem is most likely a PNP(shift position switch) problem. When this happens, the trans goes into limp home mode. The trans goes into high gear and doesn't allow any shifting up or down. This is to protect the trans.

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.

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

Clear your engine and transmission codes, its a small box in the pass side engine compartment right behind the headlight. Search "Bay 13 Volvo" and that has all the information to check and clear the codes. It also has a list of what the codes mean to help you.
