Hello JACUSTOMER, is the check engine light on in the vehicle? How many miles are on the vehicle?
Ask Your Own Volvo Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
There is133000 miles on vehicle and yes check engine light stays on.service light is on @ first then goes off.
Volvo Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Master Technician replied 8 years ago
How long will it stay on for? Does it come on when the harsh shifting occurs?
Ask Your Own Volvo Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
check engine light stays on constantly .service light goes off 10 seconds after starting vehicle.nothing changes when hard shifting occurs .check engine light just remains on.
Volvo Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Master Technician replied 8 years ago
Okay. This may be a solenoid issue in the transmission, a speed sensor issue or even a mass air flow sensor problem. Since the check engine light is on you need to have the computer scanned for codes. You can get this done for free at most auto parts stores. Come back here with the codes and I will let you know what is going on.
