Question about 1997 Volvo S90

1 Answer

1997 Volvo S90 will not turn over, electrical power but no click

My 1997.5 S90 starts intermentently. Have a problem with it getting stuck in 3rd or 4th gear and when it does this the arrow light on dash & the W/S/E lights next to shifter blink. W & E blink back & forth. When it will not start these lights also blink. Sometimes will do this after driving somewhere & shutting off car, but if try to start w/in a matter of minutes sometimes doesn't start. Usually starts back up w/in 10-45 minutes. Engine is not always hot at the time. Has not started for up 2 weeks recently then starts & runs fine. Now for the last 2 days will not start. Someone please help, it's my only car. Brian S.

    Repairpal,

    Yep, you were right. $135.00 part & paid a moble-mechanic $100 to install it. PNP Sensor is defnately the fix.

I can almost guarantee you that the gear position sensor is bad. I've replace 30 or 40 of these on 960's for these very same complaints! If you check the codes for the transmission, it will give a 3-1-3 or P0705 code. You will however need a code reader to check this on a 1997 model.
Check page 33 in this PDF for an explanation of the fault

Not sure if it will work on a Volvo, but normally if the anti-theft system has been tripped just use the key to lock then unlock the door. If not, contact a Volvo dealer or local parts store for help.

there is a valve/switch on the ABS unit that gets dirty, this is probably the culprit. sorry no help other than that, but its a good starting point and it cured the problem on one that I had.

If it happens only on turns then its the outer axle cv joint.. If it happens all the time probably something stuck in a tire. Either way have the suspension visually inspected by a technician as soon as possible.
