Drive panel sensor is the transmission control module. Inside the transmission on top of the valve body. Many things to check from "Could be" or "Is". Having codes read, It could be this or this. Having diagnostics done, This "Is" what is bad.

Transmission flares

NO: 43-37
DATE: 2-25-2003
MODEL: MY 2001-2002 S60, V70, V70 XC
SUBJECT: Shift Quality Issues due to B4 Servo Cover Failure, 2-3 upshift harshness or flare
CHASSIS: These chassis breaks are approximate:
S60: 062000-152000
V70: 116000-230000
V70 XC: 036000-067100
TRANSMISSION SERIAL NUMBER: The first 3 digits of the serial number on the affected transmissions will be between 01C (March 2001) and 01L (December 2001).
In the AW 55-50, brake number four (B4), is only applied in 3rd gear. The B4 is applied by a piston, which is covered by an aluminum cap. This cap has a steel washer crimped to its inside surface, and a rubber cushion that sits between the cover and the washer.
If this washer breaks free from the crimps it will become concaved because of the B4 piston return spring pressure.
This loose washer can cause: - " 2-3 upshift flare / slip - " Harsh 2-3 upshifts - " 3-4 upshift flare / slip - " Harsh 4-3 downshifts
Replacing the broken B4 cover with a new one (PN 30651771) will remedy these symptoms.

Transmission on volvo slips between 2nd and 3rd,2004 XC90

Yes....check your fluid level. It sounds low. Does it do it in a turn when you step on the gas as you are turning, slip?

2002 kia optima slipping into 3rd and 2nd gear while driving

UPDATE! ! ! Fixed this problem! YES ! ! ! The speed sensors was all that needed replacing. NOT ANY SOLENOIDS ! !. Two of them cost $160 and it solved the problem! Do not buy from the dealers. An after market version is available for $50 each. I was forced to buy dealers.

Instrument panel reaction

Transmission needs servicing and the position sensor is not in the correct place. Your Volvo dealer can sort that out as a warranty job on the repair you have just had done by them. If you didb't use a Volvo Workshop, best of luck!
