Run the fault codes and check for TCM problem as the instruments are controlled from it. By the wheel I take it that you mean the steering wheel in which case check the power steering pump belt condition and tension.. Check oil level in steering reservoir.

Seems like you might have wet the no 1 injector sensor..(little black plastic thing with 2 wires) It sends a pulse back to ecu and if wet it,s no good....

SOURCE: seems transmission gear shift problem

Pull the distick and smell the oil. If it's discoloured (black or dark brown) you know the transmission friction plates are burnt and needs a rebuilt.

Hi,

These cars had a few issues with the transmissions. Sometimes upgrading the software and flushing the transmission will help, sometimes a new valve body will fix the problem, but often the transmission will need replacement due to internal failure.

The first step is to have a shop read out all the fault codes, read all the service bulletins and tech notes from Volvo regarding the transmission problems and then make a decision based on all of that information.

Good Luck,

SOURCE: 4 wheel drive lock up

hey charlie, 1st problem is 4 wheel drive being engaged on dry pavement. You should only have it in 4x4 in snow, or off road on sand, dirt,etc. Newer all wheel drive vehicles compensate for the tires rotating at different speeds, like going around a sharp corner. The wheels on the outside of the turn have a longer distance to travel than the wheels on the inside of the turn. This results in the vehicle feeling like it's jumping, hopping or jerking as you cut a tight turn. You can damage your 4x4 system, as the wheels are fighting each other, trying to turn the same # of rotations, and something can and will give (like blowing the transfer case). If your light is staying on after changing to 2 wd, it is possibly stuck in 4x4. To shift from 4wheel to 2 or 2wheel to 4, you should be traveling in a straight line, let off the gas, change in or out of 4x4, resume driving. 4x4 low range requires a complete stop to engage.

2009 Hyundai Sonata decreases volume by itself


Do you have the AVC (auto volume control) enabled? If so, disable it and see what happens. If that doesnt fix it, try to do a "hard reset" by pulling out the shunt fuse. It's 1 or 2 fuses in a little yellow thing in the fuse box on the inside driver side, just pull it out a little, not all the way. Your dome lights, door dinger ect should stop working as well, this is normal. Wait 5 min and push it back in, hopefully that'll fix it up.

Check the PCV valve and vacuum lines for leaks. You also need to check the Vacuum advance as it sounds like it might be sticking a little.

it all depends on where the leak is and your text gives no hint. seems like you may have a couple of problems. this is most likely still under warranty so i would run these issues past a service department at a dealer.

1987 Honda Accord Jolts When Shifting up and down to 2nd


hi, its best you get this looked at soon as possible the chances are it could just be that you need the fluid topping up and will need checking for any leaks.
The problem is if it gets to bad then replacing an auto box is very expensive and is hard to do so its best you get it looked at before it gets beyond repair.
Taking it into a garage will be your best option as they will have a special tool for testing the pressure in the auto box and also the fluid level.
If it has got to bad and cant be solved by fluid alone then the cheapest option would be to get a reconditioned box and getting this fitted as a new one will cost a fortune.
Hope this is some help to you let me know how you get on or if you have any questions ok
