Transaction? I never seen that. When do you see this come on? Does it go off or stays on all the time? I can only think of 2 things: Traction as in traction control unit goes active meaning it wont slide the rear end under power on rain or snow etc... Or I have seen an option for towing a trailer where there is a button usually at the end of the shifter lever. Both of them are ok to have a lite on, if you were to have a problem with transmission you would have the check engine light on and maybe the transmission switch light blinking. Check you owners manual for a reference of this light.
Same thing is happening with my cs3 2002 lancer,, only when in drive (in motion) it comes on and blinks once per second, got it scanned...they said it was the primary sensor, had it changed, problem still persists....help!!!!
On the bright side, the fact the "S" indicator light came on indicates it is an electrical problem rather than a mechanical one.
When the A/T control unit senses an abnormality in the input or output systems, the "S" indicator light in the gauge assembly will blink. However, when the Service Check Connector, located to the lower right of the glove compartment, is connected with a jumper wire, the "S" indicator light will blink the problem code when the ignition switch is turned on.
It may be possible that your Park Neutral Position Switch (PNP Switch) is getting ready to fail. The switch is located right on top of your transmission and is connected to your shifter. This is a common problem. I doubt that your entire transmission is failing, because that is rare with the S70 line. Has your check engine light come on? The check engine light can be triggered by the failing PNP switch. You should take the car to a autozone if you do not have a code reader to see if this problem is sending a code to the computer. If you are unsure where the port is for the code reader, it is located inside of the center console armrest and has OBD II on it. It will same something such as Transmission position switch failure....if I can remeber correctly when it happened to me. If it displays this message, then it is definitely the PNP switch failing. If the PNP is failing be careful. Mine failed failed when I pulled into a parking space and as soon as I put the car in park, the check engine light came on my and the red arrow started flashing. I thought something had gotten wet and I decided to turn the car off for a reset, however, it would not let me start the car, because it thought the car was in some other gear besides park or neutral. So you should have it fixed ASAP. If you order the parts online, it can be a cheap fix. fcpgroton.com has this switch for a cheap price with great quality. How many miles do you have on your S70? My switch failed at 110,500. Let me know how that goes for you.
