hi!When the arrow is flashing it means that the gearbox is in safe mode. That means that the gearbox won't shift more than necessary. I have this problem on my 850 t5 but only when it's very cold outside. I hope U find a solution

yes there is actually a way to reset it you turn the key to where all the lights are on but car not cranked and go from park to drive 2 times and it makes it drive fine most of the time see i having the same problem with my 850 glt and sometimes i reset it and it drives good other times it does the sam thing
