When I have my Wipers running on my 2000 Dodge neon all my dash lights flash.

I would think you have a problem with the wiper motor, it takes too much power, or your battery or charging system is at fault.

What is happening is the tranny is going. They can try to replace the selenoid, but really, you need a rebuild. Whomever charged you to remove the light, probably messed things up more. Volvo's typically lose overdrive before losing all the other gears. It is time for a rebuild. Go to a reputable tranny shop who knows volvos.

On my VW 03reg. 1.2 polo, Orange light comes on

Make sure the batter in your vehicle is good and the connections are tight. A weak battery in a VW will cause all sorts of lights to go off on your dashboard even if there isn't a problem. If you suspect one of the sensors to be bad you will have to use an OBDII scanner to pull the codes and see which sensor is showing a fault.

This is a common problem of Volvo S40. You can try this trick to turn off the flashing arrow light.

1) Turn off Engine

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
