Why is the sport mode light flashing on my 2000 Cadillac Catera?


Sport Mode Indicator Lamp and Automatic Transmission Warning Lamp (STL)
The sport mode indicator lamp illuminates when the vehicle has been put into the sport mode by pressing the "S" button on the gear selector. When this lamp is illuminated the vehicle will have slightly firmer shifts and increased performance for part and full throttle situations.
This lamp will also flash when there may be a problem with the automatic transmission. The transmission control module (TCM) performs a continual self diagnosis of certain control functions. The lamp will flash only when an error is detected. The TCM will store in memory a current and/or history trouble code when a problem is detected. I'd have it checked out !

What makes my 95 volvo 960 jump into winter mode


Did you spill water in that little Economy/Sport switch? It pops out relatively easily so maybe get a replacement switch from the junk yard and replace it and try again?

Or do you have something hanging/dangling that would hit the button inadvertently?

Hello! I'll need the trouble code to fix your vehicle...Below is procedure with a code list...Guru...saailer

Remove the trim panels in front of the center console. Locate the engine computer attached to a floor-mounted bracket on the transmission tunnel between the console and the firewall.

  • Turn the diagnostic mode selector, located in a round opening on the side of the engine computer, until it stops. Observe the small red and green LED lights on the side of the computer next to the mode selector. They will flash to indicate the modes, with a pause between each mode. One quick flash is mode one, two quick flashes is mode two and so on. When the light flashes indicate mode three, quickly turn the mode selector counterclockwise until it stops. You have entered mode three diagnostics.

The red light flashes to indicate the "Tens" digit of the code and the green light flashes to indicate the "Ones" digit of the code. For example, if the red light flashes two times and the green light flashes seven times, this would indicate code 27.


    Turn the ignition key off for two minutes to exit diagnostics. The computer will automatically return to mode one for normal operation...

    WHAT THE MEANING OF S


    If you're talking about the "S" next to the gear selector for the automatic transmission, it stands for "Sport." Most BMWs with automatics had selections for Sport, Economy, and Winter.

    What is the function of the EH- gearbox switch on a 1994 BMW 525i series


    The EH gearbox switch serves to communicate with the TCM (Trans Control Mod). In A mode, it tells the TCM to operate in the most economical shifting program. M mode is for manual shift. If you have a * instead of a M, it stands for winter mode. This mode causes the vehicle to start off in 2nd so that torque is reduced thus reducing wheel spin on slick surfaces. Of course, by shifting into 4 or 3 puts you into sport mode for a more spirited shift pattern.

    1995 volvo 960 stuck in winter mode


    Where roy might have a possible source, it is most likely the park neutral switch which has started to fail. This is indicated by the shift arrow flashing on the dash. Replacement of this component is relatively difficult without a lift
