If you are technically minded buy a bluetooth OBD2 plug and download Torque Pro Android app. This will allow you to reset the codes yourself and ensure there is a genuine fault and not an intermittent issue. Cost was around $30AUS.

SOURCE: I have a 1992 volvo 960 and the transmission needs to be fixed

The tranmission is shared with the Toyota Cressida 82-87 model (that's the A43DE in Toyota speak if yours is a AW30-43) Yours is either a AW30-43 or AW30-40. Go to Wikipedia to get the equvalent of yours. Try Aisin Warner on Wikipedia. No need to pay top dollar at Volvo wreckers when a Toyota one will fit (just swap the bell housing and switches/controls) Remember the labour to swap is only three hours just make sure you totally flush the old fluid out (7.5 litres) & new front & rear seals go on the replacement gearbox and that the extension housing bushing is OK. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Volvo s40. Yesterday my automatic

I would change out the transmission fluid and put some transmission additives in there, see how the transmission shifts after that. Worse case have the transmission rebuilt.

The struts are about $150 apiece plus labor. If the car runs fine besides those two problems I would fix it and keep it, it's alot cheaper than a car payment.

SOURCE: My car has an orange

  1. The flashing arrow indicates a fault code has been set in the Transmission Control Module (TCM).
  2. With the key in the ignition and turned on, foot on the brake pedal, move the gear shift lever thru the range of gears, back and forth, do this about 20 times. Then try to start.
To Check the Codes on the TCM:
  1. Go to the diagnostic test box (front right side under the hood)test box A plug the pigtail into A-1 and begin reading and recording the codes.
  2. Ignition in on position. Stored Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) can be read off and erased in DTM 1.
  3. A short press on the button on the DLC will start the DTC read-off procedure.
  4. If the control module replies by flashing code 1-1-1 no faults have been registered, so no DTCs have been stored.
  5. If the control module replies using any other flashing code sequence it is a DTC that has been stored.
If you are unable to check the codes yourself, have a Volve dealer check the codes on the TCM to find out what is failing.

If you can get the code off of the TCM, here is a site with a list of the codes and their meanings:

The procedure for erasing stored DTCs is as follows:
  1. Ignition ON
  2. Press the button on the DLC and hold down for more than five seconds. Release the button.
    Wait for the LED to light.
  3. Press the button again and hold down for more than five seconds. Release the button.
  4. Make sure that the DTC's have been cleared by reading off the DTCs again.
  5. Also you can disconnect the battery for 5 minutes and see if that will clear the codes. Now at this point you will not be able to read those codes.

What is wrong with a 2001 Volvo SD40 1.9t if it gives a code P0700 TCP Mil Request

That means there is an electronic fault in the transmission and the transmission control module has requested the service engine light to come on. You'll need to use a scan tool that can communicate with transmission controller in order to diagnose the issue.

P 0733 code what does that mean

You could be more specific with the issue:
  • Transmission type (Manual/Automatic)?
  • How did this issue appear?
  • Does the car change gears normally?
Your car seems to be an automatic transmission model?
So the fault code is "Gear 3 Incorrect Ratio"

This means that you may have:
  • Low transmission fluid level or dirty transmission fluid
  • Faulty or dirty shift solenoids
  • Transmission mechanical problems
  • Transmission hydraulic control circuit issue

I have a 1999 volvo s80 and it transmision stay in third only. when you stop and start to move, it goes very slowlly. what can i do to fix this?

The transmission in this car is electronically controlled by a computer by means of solenoids inside the transmission, there may be a problem there or the wiring or the computer. To minimize cost you must have the system scanned with a special tool to see if any transmission fault codes are present in the memory of the transmission control module.

Code P0700

P0700 = TCU request for 'MIL' on (IE transmission control unit has detected a fault and wants you to know about it.)


A communication line exists between the Engine Control Module(ECM) and the Trans-axle Control Module (TCM). The sole purpose of this communication line is for the TCM to notify the ECM to activate the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) when a serious trans-axle failure has occurred.

DTC Description
If the signal "MIL ON" is requested from TCU or it is no signal from TCU, the ECM judged as a fault and DTC is set.

Kia's first suggestion is to check for damaged wiring or connectors.

Try this: Disconnect your battery for about 5 minutes to clear the fault. Then take it for a spin and see how it shifts... good luck.

In all gears the car will not excelerate

It sounds as if you have set a code in the transmission. This should be accompanied by a light, or a message in the drivers information module. You have entered a limp home mode, and the car will only perform limited functions after that. You will need to have the transmission control module scanned for codes, and a solution can be found after that. If your in Maine look up my shop on the web at

My 99' volvo v70 continually flashes the traction control and abs warning light and the speedometer stops working the trip meter and the odometer go blank than all of a sudden it will start working again...

Sounds like a bad ABS control module is at least part of your problem. The symptoms are usually and ABS and TRACS light intermittent or constand and eventually your speedometer works intermittently or totally quits. This guy rebuilds/upgrades them for about $140. New ones run over $800.
