Yes, there are a number of issues that could be causing this. Could be transmission temperature, a sensor or solenoid, or an internal problem with the TCM. Have the codes (stored in the TCM) read to get an idea of what the problem is. A dealer will likely have to do this.

Hi, My S40's transmission light and check engine light started simultaneously blinking this afternoon, but unlike your situation, I could feel the difference in pick up/acceleration from a stop. Scared to drive it now that I drove it home safely. I'll have it towed to the mechanic. Do you have any new info on what's going on with your transmission?
