This has happened 3 times. Volvo and independent garage cant find anything wrong with car.
I was driving on highway at 100km. Car suddenly 'bucked', a 'thunk'sound came from it, then all power, electronics and engline died. Car was dead. I rolled into hard shoulder. No electrical power in car at all. After a few seconds i tried to start car, No power. Left car 5 mins, then car started, we went back on road, drove 300yards, card id the same thing, big thunk, all electro died and I pulled over.
The Air bag code came on. and Orange Engine light came on.
Volvo cleared all the codes, said car ran fine. They suggested I have the remote starter removed as they said it could be grounding or causing car to stop the engine. I had the remote removed but am scared to drive car as I fear thecar will stall/die again, and i will be hit by someone.
I did some research on web, and wonderer if its a defective alternator, or
the immobilizor, or engine switch perhaps?
Volvo told me I may have to replace the CEM. (central Electronic module) if the engline dies again, but that is very expensive. Any thoughts on what the problem is??
as I am scared to drive the car.
