starting problem 95 960

I have a 95 960 volvo. We have been having a problem with the winter mode
arrow appearing and now the car will not start. Lights come on and when I
turn the key I can hear a click but the starter is not turning the engine.
I checked the codes and got a 313 and 114. After resetting the code the 313
came back. please advise. Thanks

Re: starting problem 95 960

Assuming you are referring to gearbox codes, 114 is open-circuit in wiring
to program selector. Program selection is to do with Winter/Sports/Economy
switching. The fact that it did not reappear may be due to it's being
intermittent, or not having had an opportunity to re-establish itself.

313 is incorrect gear position signal. I would have a check of the gear
position selector itself and the wiring involved. The general faults with
this are usually earthing (grounding) faults on the four sensing wires. With
313 code the gearbox is set to "limp home" mode (4th gear only) and the
diagnostic LED flashes to indicate that a forbidden combination has been
received by the gearbox from the gear position sensor. Correct gear signal
is derived from combinations of earths (grounds) on the four signal wires.

All the best, Peter.

How many miles? If the tranny in the '95 is like our '93 960, and the
arrow flashes and the car won't start sometimes, I would suspect the
PNP switch. It is a triangular switch body on the outside of the right
side of the tranny with a cable that travels over the tranny to the
left side of the box where it connects to a large plastic plug.

With the motor off and the key in PII and foot on the brake, try
rapidly (but with sanity) shifting the lever back and forth through
all the gears a dozen or two times. This sometimes cleans the contacts
and can extend the life of the switch. At Volvo it costs $190 or so
last time I checked. At FCP Groton it was $100 delivered.

It can be a bt of a bear to change. The exhaust is in the way and so
is the tranny cooling line which can be difficult to loosen and
removed (I was not able to get mine off and just worked around it at
the cost of a knuckle or two.
