What does the yellow arrow flashing on the dash mean on a 98 s90 volvo


That generally means the transmission, and most likely the PNP switch are malfunctioning.

You can typically limp it along by pushing the button on the shifter and moving it from "1" to "P" back and forth a few times in rapid succession, but ultimately you need to replace the PNP switch.

The OEM switch is about $170 and the aftermarket part is about $70. For this sort of thing, I'd use the more expensive factory part.

They're available at FCPGroton, IPDUSA and eEuroparts and other places.

Not sure if it will work on a Volvo, but normally if the anti-theft system has been tripped just use the key to lock then unlock the door. If not, contact a Volvo dealer or local parts store for help.

If it happens only on turns then its the outer axle cv joint.. If it happens all the time probably something stuck in a tire. Either way have the suspension visually inspected by a technician as soon as possible.

I have a 1997 Volvo S90 that is experiencing rough shifting from 1st to 2nd, and back down. I waas told this was not a transmission problem per se, but a sensor on the tranny that needs to be replaced. ...


Hi,
First off who told you it isn't a transmission problem?
I would of course check the fill level. How many miles on the vehicle? How long since the transmission was serviced? Was the transmission serviced at the dealer? Who did service it?
Right now I would check to top it off following the manual's instructions or taking it to a dealer. If you take it to the dealer you will pay more for the fluid but you will most likely be able to pick their brain while they 'test' the fluid level. Please trust the manufacturer on 99% of 'what to do' if recommended. Also ask the dealer to see if there are 'recalls' you would be amazed how much people can save looking for minor and major recalls on their vehicles.

1997 Volvo S90 will not turn over, electrical power but no click


I can almost guarantee you that the gear position sensor is bad. I've replace 30 or 40 of these on 960's for these very same complaints! If you check the codes for the transmission, it will give a 3-1-3 or P0705 code. You will however need a code reader to check this on a 1997 model.
