2006 Volvo V50 Problems
An abnormal noise may develop from the power steering pump. This is commonly caused when the air conditioning accumulator is touching the power steering pump. Our technicians tell us that securing the accumulator so it does not touch the pump will correct this concern.
The anti-theft alarm may sound while driving. Our technicians tell us this may be due to an internal fault with the central communications module. Failed modules will require replacement.
The air flow or temperature from the climate control system may be incorrect. Our technicians tell us a software update is available which should help with this concern.
