Is the Y more like an upside down goal post. If so it could be the transmission.

    is there a way i can post a picture on this forum?i take a pic and post it here?

    The upside down y is lambda. It indicates that the lambda sensors on the exhaust have detected an problem with the exhaust emissions, which usually means there is a problem with the engine fueling. You should have the vehicle fault codes read to get a direction on what needs to be done to correct it. Your local Volvo Dealership can do that and it should be free to diagnose.
    Hope that helps you.
    Thanks

How do you reset the emission warning light on a 2006 Volvo S40 1.8l?


the emission warning little is being set off be something that is not working properly-for instance the egr valve not functioning -so whatever is wrong will reset a code or in this case a warning light even if you could clear it-to try making it go out unhook the battery for 2 hours-cheers Denny

1998 volvos40 right hand off warning lights a triangle aupside down y shape what is this warning me about


It is sort of like the check engine light for the 2000 Volvo S40 and other Volvo Models. One of your sensors has most likely failed. You will need to connect and electronic tester to get the code to determine which component is faulty. Thanks for using Fixya.

Warning light on volvo v40, red outlined triangle, green background and what looks smiliar to an upside down 'y' - what does this mean?


It is a lambda sign. It is the same thing as a check engine light. It means the car has registered and stored a diagnostic trouble code for some system. The codes will need to be read.

I have a warning light on my v reg volvo s40 and wondered what it means. its like a orange lightbulb on the left hand side of the dash


It is the orange engine management warning light. It means that there is a problem, fault or parts that requires cleaning somewhere in your engine or parts that are connected to it.

Flashing upside down arrow/ slow acceleration


This is a common problem of Volvo S40. You can try this trick to turn off the flashing arrow light.

1) Turn off Engine
2) Turn key to "On" position (Not start the engine), you will see the panel light will on
3) Step on the break paddle
4) Shift the gear from "P" to "L" 10 times
5) Turn key to " Off" position
6) Now you can start the engine.
7) If doesn't work, you can repeat the procedure.

Hope this tick help
Good luck

I have a warning light that comes on and off on my 1999 Volvo S40. The light is like a "y" letter upside down in a green triangle on a orange back ground. Please help


I think that this is the Lamda warning light which is an indication that the fuel / air mixture is not correct or the Lamda sensor mounted on the manifold is defective.
