S/V/C70 Stuck in 3rd Gear - Volvo V70
2002 V70 automatic appears to be stuck in 3rd gear. Extremely slow and high revs to take off but ok at speed. It just happened today when I took off from a set of lights. No check engine lights or warnings on dash
this happened before and the mechanic just cleared the codes and apart from a rough start it learned itself again.
it’s happened now and whilst I can get it to mechanic on Monday I’m wandering for future can the codes be cleared by pulling the ECU fuse for 15 minutes or only by a OBD reader. And if OBD readers are needed what would you recommend. Can they all completely reset or do some reset better than others?
I will look at readers to fix myself in the future. It’s a common occurrence on these cars apparently but ok after reset. (And yes permanent fix will be looked at but it’s expensive at the moment)
If we go the VIDA reader we need to have the software and pay for a subscription don’t we?
