SOURCE: 1999 s80 gear shift sensor

It sounds like the gear selector module is going out. Other than replacing it I don't have much for you. I would take it to a shop you trust and have them run the codes to see if your getting a faulty signal code.

Sorry I can't help more.

How do you replace the shift solenoidon a 2002 volvo s80 t6


actually, it's starting out in hi gear. The sensor is inside the trans housing, so it's a lot of work to lower the sub frame with engine and trans attached. An EODB that reads and resets the TCM will allow you to drive it. Just don't shift to "D", and it will run fine; you just won't have overdrive (so your mpg will suffer).

On two occasions our '99 Volvo S80 locked in park. Gear shifting lever would not go into Drive. Both times it was parked on an incline. By pushing (rocking ) foreword several times the shifting le


Sounds like a part called a parking "Pawl" is hanging up. You could try to park the way they show you in driving school, with the rear of the tire against the curb when the car is facing uphill. Theory is that the tire will chock the vehicle against the curb as a bumper stop and prevent rolling backwards. This will minimize pressure on the inside of the transmission parking pawl.

You can go to aboutautomobile.com and search for "Consumer complaints" or Recalls and enter your vehicle info. Then see if others are having problems like yours.

1999 chevy cavalier transmission won't shift into


1999 cavelier manual trans: My son was shifting his manual trans really rough (ramming through the gears to try to beat someone out at a light) and ended up not being able to put it into anything but 3 and 4 (straight up and down). We noticed that the shifter cable, that actuates the position of the arm on the transmission, had pulled away from a "c" clip and was not held into place about 8-10 inches down the cable away from the trans. The cable needs to be secured into that clip in order to let the wire inside move the trans. lever to shift. Otherwise you will be stuck on what ever "rail" your trans is on at the time of disconnection. It would be the first thing that I would check.

I have a 1999 vovlo s80 and all the lighst on the dashboard (brake,traction,check engine) are on and none of the guages work. The car also says break failure stop ASAP. What could be causing this?


Your abs module is bad. A bad abs module will make all of those lights come on, on your dash and it will basically disable your car so that you cannot drive it anymore.

1999 Volvo S80 stuck in park


see my friend easy fix,the problem you are having is a wire problem that locks or unlocks the shifter from the park potition and also unlocks the key from the ignition switch is just getting stuck inside the ignition switch, so more likely needs lubrication you can do it yourself or have a machanic do it
for you,maybe replace it with a new one( wich i dont think is nesesary) take it out clean it, put new grease and it should be good to go, good luck.This wire is conected to the ignition switch, on the right side and can be pulled out with your hand.
