How do you replace the gear shift selector light in a Volvo 850?
You have to remove the center console, which you can get directions for in a Haynes manual. You can order the bulb itself online from several parts stores. Here is one random one: http://www2.swedishpartswholesale.com/parts/parts1/swedishpartswholesale/quote.jsp?year=1995&product=Y4000-185674&application=000339417&part=Light%20Bulb&category=Y&returnurl=null&dp=false Good Luck!
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.
That's the ASL (automatic shift lock) indicator light. "Your VW is equipped with an automatic shift lock (ASL). The ASL is an electromechanical device that locks the selector lever in the park and neutral positions when the ignition is on. You must press the brake pedal before the selector lever can be moved out of either position."
