GLT

1983 Volvo 242 • 4 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 159,000 miles

Have 1983 242 GLT that will not shift in last gear, Auto and the overdrive button works? I can click the botton on the overdrive and see the light go on and off.

No way to bypass solenoid must engage 3-4 shift valve. Test for voltage ans listen to hear if it clicks.
