An orange light flashes at the R.P.M. dial bottom, What does it means?

Sorry but we do not have this model in the USA. Have you asked the local dealer about the light. Also you can try eBay for a used owner's manual, they are cheap on the site.

Orange arrow flashing and transmission doesn`t switch from 3 to 4speed!

Either means it's in winter mode or has a faulty transmission. From your description I'd say your transmission is on its way out.

Orange flashing arrow light was on,on my 2000 s40volvo and then it shut of by itself

have the same problem with our 2001 s40 and stumbled onto a site like this with a couple answers.
1 your transmission could be going, however that is the extreme.
2 ours accelerates very slow when the light is flashing which means the winter traction is engaged even though we have not pushed button. to reset this you can turn your car off (key all the way back) and on 5 times consecutively and it resets itself most of the time.
3 sorry to type this, but just make sure you did not push the "w" button on the shifter area platform
hope this helps

Warning light on audi a4

This is the indicator for ESP (stability control). If you look on your dash, you'll see a button with, you guessed it, ESP written on it. This allows you to turn your stability control on and off. If your light is on constantly, try pushing the ESP button. If it flashes on and off (ie during hard driving) this simply means it is working.

Does anyone know what the orange arrow light means on the instrument panel of an older volvo sedan?

Means the overdrive is disengaged. There should be a button on the side of the shifter. If pressing this does not engage the OD, then you may need to replace the OD solenoid.
