New to the forum, hi, I have a 850 GLT 1996, nice car. Yesterday the winter mode light started flashing and the transmission quit shifting. Then it continued to flash and the trans started shifting fine, whats up?

The light will not shut off now, even with the battery unplugged for 15 minutes:confused:

One of the things that can cause that is a PNP (neutral safety) switch on top of the transmission starting to wear out or getting dirty.

One of the recommended temporary fixes is to slowly row through all the gears. Don't ram it from park to "1" but shift it gear by gear from park to "1" and back a number of times. It can help clean up the PNP switch and give it some more life.

Give it a shot in case that flashing arrow comes back again.

to little to late, I've purchased a JY transmission. 41,000 miles on it; down in Louisville KY. I'm starting the install tomorrow in the morning.
I cant wait to see what European engineering is about.
