What does the large arrow light mean on my 89 volvo 740 gl. its lit up

Posted by on

  • PETER WRIGHT May 11, 2010

    The arrow indicates "overdrive off". What that means is that the car
    will only shift into 3rd gear and not 4th or overdrive. It is possible
    that you without knowlege pushed the little button on the shifter
    handle not knowing you had turned off the overdrive. As long as the
    arrow remains off the trans should be shifting into overdrive. You can
    be sure by starting from a stop and feeling for the trans to shift
    three times.

If your talking about the orange arrow, it's the Overdrive indicator light. Try pushing the O/D button on your gear shifter to see if it gose out

That light means the turbo is on. You can turn it on and off by pushing the button on the left side of the shift handle.

89 740 volvo GL heater failure


Several suggestions:
  • Your thermostat needs replacement and your dash gauge is not reading correctly. Cheap and easy to put in a new thermostat to confirm.
  • Your heater core has a deposit of sediment or minerals restricting the flow of warm coolant in which case the system may benefit from a backflush.
  • The heater water valve has a blockage restricting flow and may be in need of replacement;
  • You have a vacuum leak which causes the heat vent control to work improperly;
  • Your firewall-side heater water valve was installed backwards; The arrow on the valve points to towards the firewall inlet, not back towards the engine.
  • Control cables from the heater control unit to air mixing doors are maladjusted or broken. In heater-only cars (no AC unit), the water valve (which is inside the cabin, above the left footwell) is controlled by a cable from the air mixing door.
  • Check the heater hoses, I have seen several 700's where they are swapped over and it results in ZERO heat. See the section on Water Valve Replacement for correct installation instructions.

I had the same issue on my 1989 740 GL. Mine ended up being the relay which is located behind the fusebox, once you remove the ashtray. You may need to remove whatever component is above that in order to access the relays. Mine was a large, red, round relay. I pulled one from a car in the junkyard about 4 years ago and have had no problems with it since.
