Greetings from The Lone Star state! Q: I recently purchased a 2001 Volvo S60 Turbo in automatic. Non-Geartronic, 144K miles and in excellent condition minus "Transmission Service Req'd and Check Engine Light" on. The car is in limp mode and the car barely moves...just revs and seems like the discs aren't engaging to propel the car forward. The codes are "TCM- related and Cat Converter as well as "wrong gear ration 3". Several shops have stated that my tranny is screwed as 99s-02s trannies are junk. Anyway, will disconnecting my battery help the car reset and make the limp mode go away? I already have a print out with the codes. Thank you for any/all advice.

No it won't do any good. You need to get the trans rebuilt and then do the Trans control module update and continue with change trans oil on regular basis. Good luck.

There was a recall to supposedly fix this issue.

I had the problem and the tranny guy told me it was not the tranny but the gear box that needed replacement.

Transmission = gear box.

so no difference. You do not look for a tranny when it is the gear box. the tranny expert said i do not need a used tranny replacement but gear box replacement which would cost $2500 for a 2001 Volvo S60??? Does this make sense. Could you explain.
