Question about 2001 Volvo V70
Drive car stop in traffic and revs increase as if out of gear but as soon as you release the foot brake it engadges again is this normal??many thanks andy
There was a function of the transmission called Neutral shift control. This was supposed to shift the car into neutral while at a stop and with the brake pedal pressed. The software that control it was not able to stand up over time and is now suggested to be removed.
You must go to the dealer and have the transmission control module software upgraded to remove the function.
There is also of a sticking control valve in the valve body, But do the software first...
Hope this helps.
