    I have a 2002 S 60 Volvo 2.5 The automatic stick shift is locked in Parking position.I checked the fuse 10 A is still good, I moved the searing wheel, still nothing. Please help me in solving this PROBLEM.
    Thanks A LOT.

    To Nick Muresa,
    Have you tried holding your foot on the brakes? If so check your brake light switch, this also knocks out cruise control if faulty.

  6. FlygmashV70 says:

    Is there a recall on V70 transmission?

  7. Doug ODell says:

    Any thoughts or solutions?

  8. Matdesign84 says:

    I was wondering if anyone would be able to cross reference these trans for those of us who want to for example, put a 6 speed in out 850′s and didn’t know the S60R trans will bolt right on.

  9. Matdesign84 says:

    @ FlygmashV70 yes there is on the versions made from 2001-03 there is a software update available free from the dealer. These cars are known at a ticking time bomb where the trans is concerned.

    how can i check a transmission fluid on my 2006 s40 t5

  11. Jerry Arseneau says:

    I totalled my 1999 Volvo S80 and I want to use the motor in a RWD project; what transmission would bolt up to the motor? (5 or 6 speed manual)

  12. John MacKay says:

    my 1997 V90, is stuck in Park. Brake light comes on, so not a blown fuse in the circuit. Button on gear select lever won’t budge. Car is parked on an incline, but has lived at this location for years. Several times during last months, all power accessories won’t work on initial start up, so turn off then turn on and symptoms go away. Today, it’s the gear select

  13. kc zeuch says:
