Question about 1991 Volvo 240
I was reading the postings of others having the same problem of not shifting, but all mentioned that the shift light (arrow) comes on. mine does not unless i press the button on the side, so the light works but doesn't come on when the car should shift into high gear. also, probably not related but possibly, the shift lock prevents me from shifting from park even on level ground. thanks for any input.

4th gear disengagement:
The 4th gear is engaged automatically after the transmission has shifted through 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears
at certain speeds and loads. By pressing in the button at the rear of the selector level, the 4th gear can be
disengaged, thus providing a three-speed transmission. As a reminder the
? light on the dashboard
glows. By pressing in the button again, the transmission reverts to four-speed operation and the
light shuts off.
This is straight out of the owner's handbook. What this indicates is that there may be a problem with the shift solenoid. On the highway, does is seem to rev high? Can you press the button on the shifter and have the light go out? let me know.
