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.

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.
Check page 33 in this PDF for an explanation of the fault
