    Sounds like the shifting control unit has gottenn out of adjustment. I can't explain were it is on this vehicle, but when you have a car that goes into different gears than it should , check on the TCU. The module has to be adjusted with the car in reverse and someone will have to tell when the back-up lights come on. When these are on, you you know to tighten your adjustment there.lease make sure you have safety around when doing this. It's best if all your drive wheels are off the ground.

SOURCE: 2000 Volvo S80 T6 scanner code P0237

Actually I believe the code has something to do with fuel.. the P0237 means Powertrain (P), the 0 means its a common code throughout all vehicles not manufactur specific and the 2 means Fuel , the 37 is the specific code and says the problem usually that i dont know off hand but if theres like a lack of power or you know this is creating a misfire i would start out by checkin fuel pressure [pressure, pump, rails] and then fuel delievery [injectors].

hope that gets you started or an idea maybe


ps a turbo is something you usually install yourself so the car shouldnt be equipped with a turbo sensor...i dont think that exists

SOURCE: how to re-set service light

there are three different dash panels used in the volvo v70 and s70 for 1998.
2 of them are made by VDO the third is made by YAZAKI

- the YAZAKI dash has a small rubber plug just to the left of the speedometer, pop it out with a small screwdriver and and use the screwdriver to push in the button behind it then reinstall the plug

- the EARLY VDO dash cannot be reset without a factory scan tool production date before 8/97

- the LATE VDO dash can be reset, turn ignition off, press and hold trip reset button, turn ignition on (still holding button) hold for 10 seconds release when light flashes

1. Either push the button on the mid console behind the shift lever or move the shift lever to drive.

2. If this does not work then it is the wire going to the transmission or possibly the relay.

SOURCE: radio code ( 98 Volvo S70)

Look in the manual for the code - usually someone has written it in there. If not, call the nearest Volvo dealership and give them the VIN - they can tell you what your code is. Then, with the engine off, turn the key to the "I" position (Roman numeral one) and leave it for at least 4 hours. The radio should then read "Code. and you can enter the 4 digit number! Good Luck!

SOURCE: srs light needs to be reset

Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat
(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity problem.

I DO NOT recommend disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s).

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

Is there a fuel reset in a 2000 Chevy cavalier?


have you tried ignition switch to on, apply brake and shift to park? if you then turn key to off you should be able to start vehicle. Auto trans vehicles will typically only start if they are in park(P) or neutral (N) if this doesnt do it you may have to disconnect and reconnect the battery to reset all the electronic babysitter safety devices

These assorted problems usually come from the control modules, in this case the transmission control module (TCM)
First, reset al ECM' by removing the battery negative terminal for a minute or so then re-fit it. This reset should cure all your problems. If not I shall consult my TSB's after you post the results of the reset.

S70 instrument cluster not working


Hi,

I had a similar problem. The speedometer didn't work. This is going to sound a little strange, but, at some point the battery died. When the new battery was put in, all of a sudden the speedometer worked again. Can't explain it, but it's true. Maybe just disconnecting and re-connecting the battery would help you, BUT BE CAREFUL about the radio. When the battery is disconnected (or dies) you have to put the radio code in again to use your radio. Make sure you have the 4-digit radio code before you disconnect the battery. If you enter it 3 times and fail, google what to do then.
