Hello everyone. Have a problem w/my 1995 960 sedan. Sometimes when you start the vehicle for some reason you're in winter mode, but the lights on the mode selector switch are jumping between winter and whichever ( sport or economy) mode the vehicle was left in. Also the upshift light (on dash) flashes. Other times vehicle stars in proper mode and life is great for days. Tried a used selector switch, but basically the same(maybe a little better). Could it be a bad switch or is there a relay acting up and if so where is the relay.Thanks in advance. Towne

You need to have it looked at most likely it is a bad PNP switch.

The PNP switch is the park neutral postion switch.It is located on the passenger side on the transmission.It has wires going to it.They are clumped and covered with the lovered covering.

Try to read faultcodes from gearbox before you buy any spareparts. It¨s to expensive - and not very proffessionel - trying shift spareparts with closed eyes!
