Post Up arrow blinking after getting stuck in snow

I was driving home from work and right before my driveway my car got stuck and after some well timed back ups down my hill I got it in. But ever sense then this up arrow had been blinking http://imgur.com/gallery/oRzNnzf (The car is in "on" position in this pic not fully running) is there a way to turn it off ? (Volvo v40 hatchback 1.9t) it runs fine and after driving it around just now everything seems normal.

the up arrow is used to indicate the car is in winter mode. Did you make sure the button on the console is in the correct position? Also its possible that the snow got into the wheel speed sensors or a wire was wet. Is it back to normal after a restart?

I doubt reconnecting the battery will do anything. You may need either scan for fault codes (note not all scanners read Volvo's ABS and transmission codes) and inspect the wheels for any issues with the wheel sensor wires. You should also try playing with the transmission mode switch on the console to see if it is stuck in W mode.
