Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories

1 Answer

When I start my car, mysecurity light on dash starts to blink. It is someway tied into the nob that is used to change gears. If this light is blinking , then it won't let me take it out of park. I end up waiting for the security light to stop blinking. It then allows me to change gears and drive the car. I hate to turn off the ignition because I don't know how long it will take next time to start car and get my security light on dash to quit blinking(So I can pull car out of park.) I sometimes have had to wait 5-10 minutes for security light on dash to quit blinking.

Blinking light on dash board


It may be possible that your Park Neutral Position Switch (PNP Switch) is getting ready to fail. The switch is located right on top of your transmission and is connected to your shifter. This is a common problem. I doubt that your entire transmission is failing, because that is rare with the S70 line. Has your check engine light come on? The check engine light can be triggered by the failing PNP switch. You should take the car to a autozone if you do not have a code reader to see if this problem is sending a code to the computer. If you are unsure where the port is for the code reader, it is located inside of the center console armrest and has OBD II on it. It will same something such as Transmission position switch failure....if I can remeber correctly when it happened to me. If it displays this message, then it is definitely the PNP switch failing. If the PNP is failing be careful. Mine failed failed when I pulled into a parking space and as soon as I put the car in park, the check engine light came on my and the red arrow started flashing. I thought something had gotten wet and I decided to turn the car off for a reset, however, it would not let me start the car, because it thought the car was in some other gear besides park or neutral. So you should have it fixed ASAP. If you order the parts online, it can be a cheap fix. fcpgroton.com has this switch for a cheap price with great quality. How many miles do you have on your S70? My switch failed at 110,500. Let me know how that goes for you.

Dash lights blinking


Changing the battery probably caused some of it, as items will need to be reset. Different vehicles have different steps to perform. Just another one of those things the manufacturers forget to tell you I guess, and they're all guilty of it. Here's a link you may want to look at, but make sure you read all the alternative solutions too. Hopefully a trip to the dealer for the secret(s) won't be necessary when your done reading it.

Dash lights blinking


Check for a loose fuse, ground, or wire.
Could be the switch as well.

1997 Volvo S90 will not turn over, electrical power but no click


I can almost guarantee you that the gear position sensor is bad. I've replace 30 or 40 of these on 960's for these very same complaints! If you check the codes for the transmission, it will give a 3-1-3 or P0705 code. You will however need a code reader to check this on a 1997 model.
