Three checks are needed .check your transmission fluid if low top it up. if very dirty change it. check the wires on your solenoid top of the gearbox .may need cleaned of rust. if all the above is ok . then change your relay.

All I know is that volvo does not replace shift solenoids anymore. I dont even think you can find that part. I used to work for volvo and the manufacturer would have us just replace the transmission. You can get a factory instruction manual from volvo. Its called a first edition manual. They are not cheap. It might be a good idea to bring to the dealer, just find get a second opinion.

Weell it sounds like you have the days old problem Pepole dont know how to look after there cars.
The muck you still have in the engine isent doing it any good and so you have to get rid of it all, as its in the engine block and is got to go ,,so drain a little of water out and put in 1/2 a cup of washing up liquid in the radiator and start the engine and let it get hot and take the reves up to 1000 rpm now and then to keep the water going around the system, after about 1/4 hr turn off,,stand for 10 minutes ,,and then remove the cap slowly and then take off the Bottom hose and let all water out also take off Top hose at the engine end and put the house water hose in the top and turn it on till all water comes out clean. Then put hose up into the bottom hose and do the same again ,and the same in top again.Now with a clean engine you can do the same to the new Radiator and wash out all gunk .then check the thermostat and make sure its 100% (any doubt through it out) and take note how it comes out so you can fit a new one the same way,
Now refit both hoses and fill with coolant or antifreeze and TURN on the heater to hot before starting as you also have to get out the air from heater when it was drained and you will trap the air which might cause you code problems..
But now try service light reset
1,,Turn Ignition to Number 1position.
2,,Press and hold "day counter"reset button and turn
ignition to II(second) position,hold down for about 12 seconds.
3,,Afterservice light flashes,release button,there should be 2 beeps confirming reset was successful.
Let me know how you get on .. Ron

If you are talking about the thermo electric cooling fan, its operation is independent of the car's electical system. It is switched on and off by the engine temperature. When you park, the engine heat soaks upward to heat the thermostat turning the fan on. It will run until the engine cools down and the thermostat switches it off.

If it is auto then run the fault codes and look for a problem in the torque converter clutch solenoid /servo sensor /unit. Check for oil level in the transmission and check for faulty TCM in transmission.

Transmission slipping


not necessarily-- Have an oil pressure test done to determine for internal failures.. Have the bands and clutch packs adjusted. Have the oil changed as it may be just dirty oil. Run the fault codes and check for TCM faults. A transmission replacement should be considered the absolutely last resort and a second opinion sought if it is recommended.

It can be rebuilt and there are some band adjustments that could be done first to see if it fixes the problem. Could be a shift solenoid seal any of a dozens of problems. Is it worth it? What kind of shape is it in? It’s 9 years old and is going to start giving you problems. For instance the transmission cost $3000.00 to rebuild and only get about 50,000 more miles out of it. It is going to need engine repair and electrical repairs. The car is old technology newer cars are running longer and getting better fuel mileage and a lot of car manufactures are talking to mechanic's to help speed up repairs. So can’t tell you what would be best for you that are your choice. It is old enough to start to begin costing you money.

Volvo s80 t6 shifting problem


The cheap fix: Speed sensor connected to the Transmission Control Module (TCM). That screws up the engine control module and could throw you into limp home mode. Expensive fix: Transmission control module. Start with the speed sensor. Suggest that to your mechanic and get a second opinion before changing out the TCM. It's a simple plug and swap, but the module is expensive. I bought a spare on Ebay for my Volvo for $10. The TCU, I believe, lives under the right front kick panel, at least that's where it is on my 740.
