The spring mechanism inside the button probably malfunctioned. Same problem with mine, and the mechanic wants to charge a bomb to dismantle the entire console to fix the jammed button. So I just live with the problem by simply pressing the lock release button, the little red button above the 'P' letter, to release the gear stick shift from Park to Drive.

Are you pressing down on the brake padle when you are trying to get it out of park? If that don't work check the fuses & there may be a relay that's may be related to a safty divice to the stick shift. If you don't press the brake padle the stick shift will not release so if you leave the car running a child could not push in gear. The lock silinoid is at the gear console

1992 Volvo 240 odometer stopped working but the speedometer works


There is a gear in the speedometer that is stripped and is causing the odometer to stop working. You can get a replacement gear from Odometer Gears (Jeff Caplan) 757-593-3478. You will need special tools to replace these gears, so you may want to take the speedo or the car to a speedometer shop.

I have a 92 Volvo 240 with automatic transmission. The gear gets stuck when shift to park. I now park on neutral with the emergency brakes on. My mileage odometer is also not working anymore. Is it...


There is a fault with the automatic transmission and hence the lever gets struck with the park because when the car is started the idling governors are holding on the gear notch not allowingit to be shifted.
So if your can continue to park in neutral witth emegency brakes as in the case of manual transmission it is alright.
However whether to replace the odometer depends on your preliminary examination of the unit. Remove and check out if there is any visible damage beffore deciding to replace.However you will need help from Volvo service for the part and so while they remove it can be checked for minor repair before replacing.

1992 Volvo 240 GL = shift problems


It sounds like linkage to me as well - jack car block to prevent fall and block tire - do on flat ground and track cable under car. I think you should start under hood where linkage joins transmission. I seem to recall a plate there to hold at this end . not that it is a yoke type movement in transmission. this must be always lubricated. Did you ever have car jump out of gear? was it ever stiff to shift and has car been sitting?
