Means the overdrive is disengaged. There should be a button on the side of the shifter. If pressing this does not engage the OD, then you may need to replace the OD solenoid.

disengaged, thus providing a three-speed transmission. As a reminder 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.

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.

If an orange arrow is blinking that means that there is a problem with your transmission i have the same problem with mine. Bring it too a mechanic there is a relay switch on the transmission they have to replace it cost about 150$$. Have you had any problems with the transmission before?
