Just because your Check Engine light came on doesn't mean there's something wrong at all. Various Mechanical functions are timed by the Manufacture to signify Servicing required.

Sometimes they're set at 50K miles or more, when the light starts going on, all you have to do is take it to an Authorized Service Shop and they Reset the timer. Most places won't even charge you for doing it unless they find something wrong.

'97 volvo 960, Orange W-mode arrow blinking, then lost power. What is wrong?


The usual cause of this is a bad PNP switch or gear position sensor.
The "W" is flashing because the transmission control module is stuck in the Winter mode. If you are not familiar with sensor, I suggest you go and have the transmission codes read and reset to begin with and then post back the results.

I am looking for a ECU pinout or a Diagram. I am throwing a "turbine overspeed" code (P0716) on a non turbo car. Also P0721 and P0705 On second ECU with the same issue.


Hello. You are confusing the turbine over speed control sensor module of the car's transmission, with a turbo charger- a forced air induction device, of a car's engine. One has nothing to do with the other.

The turbine over-speed control module is basically a sensor that reads the speed of the transmission's input shaft (torque converter) in relation to the speed of the output shaft- transmission speed ratio/gear.

Simply put- when the P0716 error code displays, it means that the ECM has detected the value(s) of the input sensor as being out of range, like being too high or too low; or that there is some bad wiring issue in the circuit.

When this happens, the subsequent P0721 output speed sensor and P0705 transmission range sensor circuit malfunction error codes appear- and does not necessarily mean that the entire transmission components (electronic modules, sensors, or mechanical parts) have malfunctioned leading to a major transmission overhaul.

It is most likely that the Input Turbine Speed sensor needs to be replaced. Take the car to a well qualified SAE certified transmission specialist who has precise diagnostic and transmission control readers and are able to reset the computerized transmission modules once the repair is made.

My volvo 960 1997 wagon at times won't start. when I try to start it, it's like the battery is completely dead, but the battery is fine. what is making it do this ?


Depends on your definition of completely dead.
Do the lights work, but no crank ?
Can you jump start the car ?
A mechanic would check for voltage at the battery, the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch, along with the ground connections to the engine.

Po705 code goes to limp mode start off in low gear & shift to drive car goes fine no issue. arrow still blinks thanks.


#p0705 the on board computer is not receiving any input from the Transmission Range sensor.Check wire harness and plugin at sensor for any damage or maybe it just came unpluged.If no damage could be found and it was pluged in propperly, then replace the sensor. Good Luck and have a good XMASS.

    How much does it cost to fix reverse lites on a 1997 volvo?


    This is an external problem.P1134 is telling us that upper O2 sensor on bank 1 -which is firewall side- is responding slow and needs to be replaced. P0705 is showing the transmission range switch -which is located on the top of the transmission just under the battery tray- has given up. That is why the shifter indicator lights acting weird. Replacing these two parts will take care of your problem.

    1998 Volvo S90 gear cannot be engaged


    Sounds like the PNP switch or the Park/Neutral switch is out of line (adjustment). There is very much information about this on the internet.

    Just today I was called by my garage because the mechanic could not start the car. I had my 1993 960 in for freon (134). Over the phone he said the starter would engage but no start. He was about to recommend a new fuel pump because no fuel was reaching the engine. So I said wait. I went down and while he was not looking I did the shifting routine of: brake depressed, key on, move shifter from Park through all the gears several time, then key off. After this I could start the engine and drive off. On the transmission is a PNP inhibitor switch and a Park/ Neutral sensor switch that cause no start and no shift situations. Oh yes, I did not bother to tell him what I did! He spent six hours trouble-shooting and would have charged me.

    My next project is to wire around these trouble makers. I always drive in "E" and I do not care if it will start in all positions.
