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?

I have a 2000 discovery land rover. Last night a green S light that has a circle around it with lines going around the circle makes it look like a sun. This light doesn't flash. What does this light mean...


this light is when you select sport mode...to deactivate it just look at the gear selector stick behind and you'll see mode button. simply press on it gently and this light will go off. this is to use sport mode only. no harm to the vehicle at all as it's a facility can be used when needed

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
