This has happened twice in our 2000 V40. There is a transmission sensor that goes wonky, or possibly gets a bad connection. You'll probably get engine codes P1618 (Transmission code waiting) and P0705 the actual transmission code saying there's trouble.

Both times I was able to reset the sensor by shifting repeatedly with the engine off and the key in various positions. Sorry I can't be more specific. There were directions on the net and I followed them the first time. The second time I wasn't able to find them and just shifted and keyed for 5 minutes and it was fixed.

Ours goes bad when it rains, so I'm thinking it's a bad connection.

I just experienced this myself. Were you stuck in the snow? I was, and began to shift from forward to reverse in winter driving mode and the check engine light came on and the the arrow started flashing. I undid the battery cable and the flashing arrow went off but the check engine light stayed on. There was an error code due to the fact that the wheels were spinning. I took it to Volvo and they reset the computer and charged me $89 then dropped it to $80 because I'm a member of the Volvo Club of America. That's probably one avenue to go.

Major transmission problem. That's what the flashing Check Engine light means.

If the Check Engine light is on all the time, it means there is a "fault code" stored in the computer. Take it to an auto parts store (like Auto Zone) and ask them to read the codes to see what it says. They should do it for free. If they won't, go to another auto parts store.

Shifting lever doesnt want to come out of park


This is a problem that occurs in many Honda's. Inside the shifter is a cable that is connected to the button to release the shift lock so you can shift into a gear. This cable become frayed and can eventually brake, which makes it hard to shift. The only solution is to replace the shifter either with a new OEM from Honda (very expensive) or get a good used one from your local recycle yard.

4wd doesnt work


First make sure someone did not replace the transfer case with a manual shift transfer case. If not you have what mechanics call "GHOSTS" there is a miscomunication somewhere between the button and the relay this will take time to trace down get a good multimeter and a wiring diagram.

Lights flashing on a/c and air recirulate buttons


Sounds like its gone into programming mode. All you need to do is start your van. (if you are unsure what knob or lever is which I am looking in the manual for proper terms) Then slide your temp lever all the way to the left (full cold). Then turn the Mode Control to 'panel' (the one that sends air to your face only). Then turn the 'blower switch' to all the way to full. Now go to the leftmost three buttons. Press the top one (rear wiper on constant) and the bottom one (rear wiper washer fluid). Hold these two for a few seconds. Once the lights come on solid then begin to flash you can let go. The AC will now calibrate. You will feel the air blow out of all the different zones at different intervals and see lights come on and go off. Then after a minute or two the top bottn you pressed will be slowly flashing. This means it has been completed (I actually let it run for 5 more minutes just in case something else started blinking). Press the last flashing button and you are done.

When you press the shift on the fly button s on the dash for 4 wheel drive the light keeps flashing but after 2 or 3 flashes it is suppose to stop. It seem like the 4 wheel drive isn't fully engaging.


If the light is continuing to flash the 4X4 is not engaged, most likely the motor that engages it on the transfer case is either stuck or defective.
