Default P Codes for 1999 V70 with 175miles

I am an owner of a 1999 Volvo V70 that I purchase for my daughter for college. We paid cash for the vehicular last year. I new it has some transmission issues and I had it checked out and the following codes are as follows:

I tried to look some of these codes up on the internet but some of the sites want money just to get answers. Now she is not driving the car because I think and I quote...The Transmission may need to be& replace and that is very costly right now. Can anyone give me some advice as to how I can go the route that will not cost me an "ARM & LEG" The orange Arrow is flashing, the check engine light keeps coming on and off. The body of the car is in great shape and I don't want to put to much money into this car as it's just her transportation school. I may have to junk it!


PS I am new at this site....So hi Every One!

Welcome, one of the trouble code pages given by Ultraguage is: OBD-II Check Engine Light Trouble Codes

The dreaded flashing arrow is suppose to mean something wrong with the transmission, there could be an electronic fault or a sensor that could be causing it, but it's most likely your transmission. When was it last serviced? and how many miles are on it?

Also if there are major problems, consider which is cheaper: selling that one and getting a new car, having a shop fix or replace your tranny, or getting a parts car to use to replace things with.
