Question about 1987 Volvo 240
There's a wire connector (plastic) near the transmission linkage under the car - that may be unplugged and need to be plugged in.

I recall reading somewhere that one of the fuses was specifically wired to serve the auto tranny's 4th gear. I remember it because it seemed really odd to me. I'm not sure if that's the problem, but it sure would be an easy fix... Worth a look!

4th gear disengagement:
The 4th gear is engaged automatically after the transmission has shifted through 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears
at certain speeds and loads. By pressing in the button at the rear of the selector level, the 4th gear can be
disengaged, thus providing a three-speed transmission. As a reminder the
? light on the dashboard
glows. By pressing in the button again, the transmission reverts to four-speed operation and the
light shuts off.
This is straight out of the owner's handbook. What this indicates is that there may be a problem with the shift solenoid. On the highway, does is seem to rev high? Can you press the button on the shifter and have the light go out? let me know.
