Is this a automatic or Manuel transmission? I will guess at this time its your G.S.M (Gear Selector Mechanism) and you may need to have it replaced. Volvo's bad idea of never servicing the transmission fluid leads to many problems. The other reason you may have this light is that you need to have the software updates done for the transmission.

I have a 2004 5 speed Dodge Neon and my gear shifter is loose to where I can't put it in gear


check for broken selector cable, linkage or pivot for the gear lever if direct into the top of the box
in gear selectors that are direct into the top of the box , the regular failure is the pivot pin in the turret comes loose and will not allow effective gear selection

Code P0705 & P0715


Code 705 is for the transmission range selector problem, and code 715 is a problem with the input speed sensor circuit.
You'll need someone to check these two sensors to proceed.

My 2000 Sephia will only shift gears manually from 1,2, then to drive. I get a code PO734. How do I fix and or slove this problem?


This is what your codes mean:

Trouble Code Conditions:
Vehicle driven to a speed of 4-37 mph at more than 500 rpm, gear selector in 4th Gear in Drive, and the PCM detected too much difference in the engine speed and output shaft speed.
Possible Causes:
  • Customer may complain of intermittent 4th gear operation
  • O/D and 2/4 pressures less than 75 psi
  • O/D or 2/4 clutch volume indexes out of specification
  • O/D accumulator seals are damaged
  • Transmission enters "limp in" mode running in 4th gear

Trouble Code-P0735 (A/T Gear Ratio Error Fourth Prime)

Trouble Code Conditions:
Vehicle driven any forward Gear, and the TCM detected the ratio of the Input speed to the Output Speed did not match the current Gear Ratio (this test can take up to 5 minutes).
Possible Causes:
  • Related Gear Ratio trouble codes may be stored (note that some of these Gear Ratio trouble codes may be intermittent)
  • Transmission has internal problems or damage present
You have a transmission problem.Hope this helps, James Booth

I have done a diagnostic on a 5 series BMW and the following codes came up:P0720 STALL SPEED,065 GEAR MONITORING4(LIMP-HOME PROGRm). please help


Error is due to a conflict of engine revs versus car speed. The control module for reasons of safety has imposed a safe home mode to prevent any further damage. The car is programmed with the data that at a certain rev output in a certain gear the car should have a certain speed. Check the following: a) The crank sensor detects engine revs. b) The transmission speed sensor detects prop rotation (there may be one on the rear differential) c) The gear selector indicates which gear has been selected. Check that all are clean, that the wiring is intact and that connections are clean and tight

1995 sunfire wont shift gear


There were two different automatic transmissions in the Sunfire that year,the 3 speed trans designated the 3T40,and the 4 speed trans designated the 4T40.If your car has the 4 speed trans,there will be a circle around the "D" on your gear selector indicator.The 3 speed trans will not have a circle around the "D".The 3 speed trans works off of a cable called the TV or Throttle Valve cable.This cable should be checked where it engages the throttle body around the area where the throttle cable attaches to the throttle body,on the engine.If the cable becomes disconnected for whatever reason,the trans will not shift out of 1st gear in most cases.If the car has the 4 speed trans,this model trans is totally electronic,and the vehicle should have the codes pulled out.For every trouble code,there is a diagnostic route to follow to repair the malfunction.
