I have a 2001 Volvo S80 2.9 with 115,000 miles. A dealer changed the transmission under warranty at 80,000 miles.
I started out recently and within 100 feet the Service Transmission Soon light came on and the car went into limp-home mode. I took it to an independent Volvo specialist, who determined the ABS module was bad. He replaced it, but the warning light and the limp-home mode came back. This time the car gives the following codes:
ECM-530D: trouble code in transmission module.
TCM-0002: shift solenoid 1 signal missing.
The mechanic says he can hear the solenoid moving, but has floated the idea of replacing the entire transmission, but is that necessarily to fix what seems like a missing electrical signal? Especially when my current transmission only has 35,000 miles?
