so weird, but this has happened to me 5 times in the last month.

Has anyone experience the transmission going into manual mode by itself? The first few times, it switched to manual mode and i could only accelerate and gears did not shift. I thought first two times that maybe somehow I touched the paddle shifters. third, fourth and fifth time, I know I didn't.

I quickly just move my stick to the left and back to regular drive mode and all is good, but kind of weird. i take the same route home after work everyday and it has happened at around the same spots, but once just driving slowly out of my works driveway.

has to be software right?

today i also had a slight glitch on my sensus for the first time. went blank and came on about a minute later.

i am now at 51k miles. 2016 s60

Since you mentioned the paddles, could it something in their wiring?

It'll work itself out, perhaps at times you are somehow accidentally doing something incorrectly ? If it's only sporadic it may just be human error.

the first two times, i thought it was me somehow turning the wheel, but the next three times its happened i know I didn't and it goes to manual mode so that would only have to be from the paddles? i hope it'll work itself out, but i feel like my car is tellingme to go use the warranty before it runs out next year lol

It’s Halloween, so our cars have become spooky for the holidays.

Our S60 did exactly that to me last night, in my case a ghoul put my transmission into manual after placing the gearshift lever into “Sport” mode leaving a Panda Express.

Ancient Chinese secret?

Would not shift either, had to place gearshift lever into “Normal” mode to shake it out it’s haunting and shift normally again.

Thought I had done something to trigger the manual mode, but was certain I had not done so at the time and after hearing this I now understand - IT WAS THE CHINESE PLAYING A HALLOWEEN TRICK ON MY VOLVO!

If Donald Trump keeps ****ing with Xi Ping, all our late model Volvos will only go into reverse.
