Question about 1995 Volvo 960
Hey, I have a 1996 Volvo 850 Wagon with 203k miles on it. About a month or so ago, the shifter began sticking in the "Park" position as I turned on the car. I would turn the car off, restart it, and it would work fine. It did this about 40% of the time
Well about a week ago, this fix stopped working. The check engine light has come on, and I have to use the shiftlock override to get it into drive or reverse. Again, doesn't do this all the time, but the frequency has increased. Additionally, yesterday I noticed that when this problem occurs, the speedometer does not function. All of the other gauges work properly while the car is operating.
I'm planning on taking it into a mechanic, I just wanted to know if anyone has had similar problems, or knows how screwed I am and how broke this is going to make me.
i also have this problem sometimes when i start my 1995 960 wagon, i try to put the car in drive an it wont let me untill i use the shift lock release.mean while as i drove down the road i tried to put the window down or use the blinkers an have no power to any of them..i turned the key back just a bit an everything works..one time when it didnt go into drive i tried the window an blinker an had no power i turned the key back not far enough to turn the car off jus moved it an the car went in to drive.thats my problem its the position of the key..everytime it wont go into drive i adjust the key an it works??? i have 282,000 miles an luv my volvo
Ultimately, Stick to the Above Diagnosis. You have already Discovered what the Problem is. DO NOT let the Mechanic repair all this other Stuff that May Come up until after the Ignition has been Replaced. The Ignition being Replaced should solve these Problems without any added Repairs unless they are Small ones. Should not Cost you all that Much either. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
