The shift up button is flashing. Unsure how to make it stop


This has happened twice in our 2000 V40. There is a transmission sensor that goes wonky, or possibly gets a bad connection. You'll probably get engine codes P1618 (Transmission code waiting) and P0705 the actual transmission code saying there's trouble.

Both times I was able to reset the sensor by shifting repeatedly with the engine off and the key in various positions. Sorry I can't be more specific. There were directions on the net and I followed them the first time. The second time I wasn't able to find them and just shifted and keyed for 5 minutes and it was fixed.

Ours goes bad when it rains, so I'm thinking it's a bad connection.

The warning light above the airbag light on the dash. 2002 VW


Malfunction indicator light it is the symbol of your engine with a line of suffering and the word "CHECK" -- this could be something minor like needing a spark plug to be replaced (common problem) or to something more serious like engine electrical work needed. a flashing engine light is the more serious so you are not to worry.

Take off is slow and engine light is on along with an arrow light flashing


Try shifting the gear level from P to 1 and so forth with brakes fully depress. If still persists, check the linkage under the carriage if it is stuck or otherwise.

My 99' volvo v70 continually flashes the traction control and abs warning light and the speedometer stops working the trip meter and the odometer go blank than all of a sudden it will start working again...


Sounds like a bad ABS control module is at least part of your problem. The symptoms are usually and ABS and TRACS light intermittent or constand and eventually your speedometer works intermittently or totally quits. This guy rebuilds/upgrades them for about $140. New ones run over $800. http://home.earthlink.net/~vicrocha/Volvo_Parts/Volvo_ABS_removal.htm

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

How to check timing belt or set timing belt to the corect time


The timing light connects to the number one spark plug wire. (closest one to you on right side). Than aim light at crankshaft pulley. You will see a tiny arrow next to the crank shaft,
Shine the light with engine running. Point down exactly at arrow. You will see numbers flashing next to arrow on crankshaft. +5 0 -5
You want to arrow to be pointing on 0

Any car that has coil packs and NOT distributor is called distributorless. These cars are self timed by the computer. All the sensors in the car go to the computer. Than the computer adjust timing, fuel release and more.

1998 Volvo V70 with potential transmission problems?


Yes, it's the 'pnp' switch (also known as the inhibitor switch) which is on the side of the transmission.

I own 2 Volvo 960s (3 litre automatics) which are similar in many respects ... and have that flashing arrow. It's a well known fault and you don't have much to worry about.

Rather than write it all here, you can read what I wrote as an ebay guide about it at http://reviews.ebay.co.uk/Volvo-960-Automatic_W0QQugidZ10000000003233806

I did put similar info on my website at http://www.glennsmart.btinternet.co.uk/volvo960.html with photos

Though the ebay guide is better ...

If you haven't got time to read it ... forget the flashing arrow and put a bit of black tape over it ... My wife's car has (192,000 miles) had that arrow flashing for 3 years. My car (100,000 miles) has had that flashing arrow since I bought it 1 year ago.

I did change the pnp on both cars ... but you also need to have the computer error reset by Volvo to have the light extinguished. Don't worry ... keep driving.

2004 Suzuki Forenza-- flashing check engine light, hesitation


Go to library and get an automechanic's Diagnostic and Repair book or manual.
Simply check out the possibility whether the negative response that you are getting from your car matches the mechanical data found in the repair book and manual.

AND NEVER forget to consult an attorney for FREE advice concerning laws governing the legal responsibilities of auto mechanics (there are attorneys who do NOT charge a fee for the first 30 minutes of advice) Check yellow pages. GOOD LUCK!
