Customer Question

I have a 2007 Volvo s-40 with a 5 speed automatic transmission. When I am in 5th gear and press down the accelerator it goes down a gear and the transmission red light comes on and it stays in that gear. When you pull off the road and turn the car off and back on it works until the next time you do it again.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

Are you accelerating slight, moderate, or hard to cause this downshift?

Any chance you can get it scanned to see which codes are stored?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I drive moderately and not hard. I cannot get the codes until monday.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 7 months ago.

I can help more efficient with the codes unless your fine with a general answer now?

Hello again Chris here,

I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears your not pleased, or need more help.

Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. I have the option to call you if that would be better.

Thanks Chris
