Mechanic tested hydraulic system and says it's fine. Says the antilock braking unit is defective and needs replacement. Estimates unit at $650
plus installation. Can't get inspection with warning. Brakes work fine but no "antilock" action. Thanks VAP
AC compressor just blew the other day after showing high pressure in the line. Had begin to experience car shutting off at lights right before it happened. Car will restart only if it is allowed to be off for a while. Battery light comes on. Last night, rear light stayed on even though car was off. Had to remove the lightbulb to turn off and noticed was very hot. Seems like electrical issue? I dont know if the all incidents are related.

if i don't turn off all electrical components before i turn my car off meaning take charger out cig lighter and manually turn radio off even though when doors open it shuts off at times when my base hits hard its like it knocks the battery out cause my car shuts down for two seconds and comes back to life.......it also seems to hesitate when i start it and it starts at a very low temp,its around 135 to 140 and lets out white smoke from time to time when i start it up it also lets off a little smoke when i punch it from time to time but its not sweet it all most smells like gas more so than coolant........after driving for 15 minutes the check engine light comes on at the 30 40 min mark of straight driving its at 220 to 235 but it never completely over heats at lights its cools right off could be the a.z summers.....I've only changed the upper radiator hose due to a leak.....a previous mechanic also told me i had a very slight crack in head gasket but no need to fix i just needed k&w block sealer and i did use a block sealer but i used the one that works with all coolant so i didn't have to drain and flush the hole system......and last but not least it idles kinda rough the dial jerks between the 1000 rpm mark and shutting off but has only done that once and only since my subs were put in, the car it self isn't to jumpy but it has a slight hick up........as of a couple days ago it started to tell me to change trans fluid, with that said it has a rough transition from first to second at about 30 35 and on it drives great no problems it also takes a second to drop in to first from park, I'm going to service trans today and hopefully it changes its attitude from park to 30.......but i wonder is my head gasket blown because i didn't do the 24 hr sealer.....are is it working the fuel injector cleaner and block sealer through the system, it was sitting for to yrs before i purchased it less than a month ago it has 155k mile on it and other than i no the problem but i just need help with this one....ha ha please someone help my lac
ago. Has been running fine until last night. At speeds between 35-45, the engine starts to "buck" like it is misfiring. Press on the gas and the vibrations go away. Then the check engine light came on. Ideas? Help?
I bought my car under 90 days ago from a Honda dealer (who knew NOTHING about Volvos) but I got a good price. I now LOVE it. However, my check engine light came on (P2112 is the generic code - my boyfriend has the diagnositc tool at work but the codes for European cars aren't fully unlocked) and I'm seeing there was a recall on the throttle in 2006 (although some sites show my 2002 was included and others say it's not). It's not stalling but it's very sluggish ("limp home mode"??) and I don't like having lights on when the main reason for the car is to take my kids places. Taking it back to the Honda dealership seems pointless. I'm seeing prices of $900 back in 2005/2006 to fix. I've read on other sites that Volvo's proceedure is/was to clean it a couple of times before looking to replace the part if it is covered by the recall and that the warranty on that part was increased to 10 years/200,000 miles. Where can I find a diagram of the throttle? What is the best thing to use to clean it? Would cleaning it ourselves void this extended warranty if it is indeed covered? Thanks for all help!!!
