If the transmission isn't giving you any trouble, it's probably a reminder that it's time to change the oil and filter. Check in your service manual but most manufacturer's look to have it done around the 60,000 mile range. You should be able to do it yourself but a transmission shop would be able to see potential problems at that time and maybe be able to make a simple fix that could save you money down the road. Hope this helps.

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.

The P0700 is not a true fault code, it just means that the powertrain control module has requested the Transmission control module to turn on the check engine light to alert you of a fault. The P0717 is the one you need diagnosed, it is the real problem,.

Transmission Service Required message


They are correct as to the Location of the Sensor and, It would be a Time Consuming and Expensive Repair But, If you are not getting the Red Caution Light I would have the Tranny Flushed and Filled and see if it is not Just Buildup on the Sensor. It could actually Release itself. If not you will eventually have to get a Rebuild Buut, Try the Flush and Fill First.

Transmission Service Required 2001 Volvo S60 T5


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,
