Is it in winter mode? if not the trans has a fault, and will need to be repaired by a shop that does Volvo work, or the dealer.

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=isuzu+trooper+winter+button&ia=web

found this info: "The available 4-speed automatic features a winter mode. When it's engaged, the transmission starts out in third gear to prevent wheelspin on icy or snowy surfaces. The transmission also has a power mode that gives better acceleration by raising up-shift points. Both modes are controlled by well-placed pushbuttons in the center console."

all with google or DD in 5 seconds work,,,,,

'97 volvo 960, Orange W-mode arrow blinking, then lost power. What is wrong?


The usual cause of this is a bad PNP switch or gear position sensor.
The "W" is flashing because the transmission control module is stuck in the Winter mode. If you are not familiar with sensor, I suggest you go and have the transmission codes read and reset to begin with and then post back the results.

I have a 1998 holden jackaroo SE automatic petrol car and it starts,reverse but when u put it in drive it doesn't drive if you press on the winter drive it goes so what's causing the problem?


Get a trained person to check the transmission. If it goes backwards but only goes forward in winter mode then there is a trans fault because auto's generally pull away in 2nd gear in winter mode to reduce wheelspin.

The vehicle also features the Torque on Demand (TOD) 4-wheel-drive system produced by BorgWarner.

seem like you need to find a TOD and 4speed expert.

check fuses first.
yah, yah , nobody scans here. just guess.

Winter sign on dashbord and no first gear


There will be a button on the dashboard somewhere (or next to the gearshift perhaps) that has the winter symbol on it. The reason you are starting in 2nd is that you have selected winter mode (possibly hit it while cleaning?) and to make it safer to take off, 2nd gear is used (less likely to lose traction)

My transmission works in winter drive but not on its own


Have you had the transmission control module scanned for fault codes? This transmission is electronically controlled. If no codes show up in memory then you may have a mechanical problem, Also winter selection starts in 2nd gear, so you may be missing that gear.

Mode w engaged


when the arrow light is flashing it means the car is in what they call "limp home mode" its supposed to reduce power output in order to prevent further damage to the vehicle. usually kicks in when you're "hot rodding" the car for a long period of time. however i have no idea why it would come on if you just shifted from 3 to L unless the computer felt you were endangering the transmission
