Question about 2004 Volvo XC90

Open Question

2004 Volvo XC90 T6 Vehichle has occassional hesitation and then "catches" into gear when accelerating from stop. Can happen w/ light or heavy acceleration. Only codes generated were for gas pedal module which was replaced by dealer. Issue is still happening but no codes are being generated so dealer doesn't know what to fix. Issue has not occured during their multiple times driving the car.

    Did you ever figure this out? I have a similar problem, only when parked for a while, then I try to pull out in Drive, does not happen in Reverse.

    I have the same problem. Happens randomly when stopped at a light. I've had it to the dealership several time and they say the car is not registering any problems, and of course it never does it when they're driving it. I'm terrified to pull out into traffic - incase it decides to act up. HELP

    someone PLEASE help. I've tried everything. Volvo N.A. is ZERO help, said they've never heard of the problem! I'm terrified to put my kids in the car.
    I'm sending them this page.

SOURCE: 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

Car doesnt move when in gear

sounds like it probably needs a transmission. volvo has been warrantying the transmissions in the 6 cylinder xc90's so you may get lucky if you have a t6. take it to a dealership and they may warranty the whole job or they may pay for the new transmission but you have to pay the labor to install it

Getting a used 2004 XC90-T6

Dont buy the T6 version. They have had TONS of transmission problems and it runs about 5-6K for a new one (dealer). My experience has seen some on their third transmission, and in my shop there are currently at least six waiting for transmissions which are on backorder due to the demand. Buy the 2.5T (5 Cyl.) or the V8, both of those are much better vehicles.

Add me to the list. Just got back from a Volvo dealership in Chicago and was told the 'winding' noise we're experiencing during deceleration in our 2004 XC90 is due to a failing transmission,so i would suspect the same accelerating. hope all works out for you
