So that you don't shift the gear selector by accident
This button is for winter mode. The transmission will start in 3rd gear thus reducing wheel spin when starting from a stop in slippery conditions.
Volvo is a great technology in vehicles. Shift light indicator mean the indication given, that the vehicle is now comfortable to shift the gear. For Example, the Volvo car is moving on 60 mph and you are moving on 4th gear the shift light indicator will blink reminding now you can shift a gear further mean you can move by gear 5.
A common problem with alot of Volvo's is the Overdrive. Basically the high gear. If it wont shift into high gear it means that the "Overdrive" is activated and won't shift into high gear. You need to see if there is a little upwards pointing arrow on your Dashboard Cluster. If there is then you need to replace your Overdrive Solenoid.

The cause of the key sticking in the ignition, after the car is turn off. This is caused by the button on the gear shift knob, not coming out all the way or sticking.

If your button on gear shift knob will not turn dash light off & shift into overdrive it is check first fuse, then the solenoid on transmission most likely. IPD sells a kit to eliminate this problem about $40.00 +/-
