The car is running fine overall but none of the internal gauges work (Temp, Fuel, Speedometer, Odometer, Tach etc) . Oddly enough the check engine light is always on. On occasion the gauges come on and seem to work fine until I turn the car off.

Overall the car seems to be running fine. Is this a known issue or has anyone else experienced this? I'm guessing that if I take this to the dealer it will cost more to fix it than the car is worth. Any recommendations?

my car wont start and im not sure why i think its my alternator. when i try to start the car the first time it will turn over and run for like 2-3 secs and then turn off and when i try again it jus makes a ticking noise like my battery is but but at the same time i'll be getting a jump and that goes to show its not my battery.

Does it control seat belt,side impact protection and supplemental restraints? Thats all the codes the diagnostic is showing

car starts every morning, when its been run a while and turned off it wont start again. It makes no noise or even tries to start. I wait a couple hours and it startes again.

looks like it coming down the back of the engine...any ideas

I had a standard rectangular air filter for awhile, then put in a K&N air filter but i decided to go with the round Spectre Because in my jeep it game me more power and better gas milage, but now I'm starting to second guess myself because I don't know if it will do anything to the engine or affect the turbo?

It was last replaced three years ago (7/09); since the car has been driven about 29,200 miles.

I can set the clock though it isn't always easy to do. Sometimes it does what it is supposed to when I turn the "stick" and other times it just takes off running forward at full speed no matter which direction I'm turning the control. When I do get it set it may only stay set for a couple of hours, sometimes longer, before it takes off and advances to another setting.

Also, at the same time I have found the heater blower running with the car off and key out. I came out some time later and it was randomly blowing. cycled key on/off to stop. Just started happening.

need specific details on removal/cleaning steps

Sorry I Left This Out Of My Previous Question What Is The Part Number For The AC "S" Hose,"Clamps" And The Filter.

The AC Just Stopped Working Two Days Ago. The Leaking "S" Hose Is At The Very Front Of Car And Difficult To Get To. Supposedly This Leak Has Caused The AC To Stop Functioning For Lack Of Retaining Refrigerant. It Is Also Possible I Need A "Filter". What Are Cost For Parts.

My brakes sqeel, and grind when comming to a stop.

The car idle drops and dies seem to be at idle and low speeds

Very rough idle at light sometimes no power when pressing down gas pedal

road side assist jumped car to start, now ac and clock don't work. checked fuses. all okay.

hadn't driven for two wks. went to enter and can't open any door or hood without access to cabin. A local mechanic suggested key module bad and drained battery. would need to tow it 200 miles to miami for dealership. help?

My volvo bucks when I start it periodically. When it does I turn it off then restart and it usually starts fine. I replaced my thermostat and control module locate there because the computer threw that code. It didn't help.

How much does a new key cost?

the driver window has trouble going up and down when pressing switch also

oil is pouring out looks like main seal and some from cam shafts

Also , intermittently, the car on idle will have a rhythmic pulsing , searching engine and I can see minor movement on the tachometer, but again the car doesn't stall. I am using the highest grade gasoline, have changed all the plugs and coils; air filter is clean.

Also on the cold start, once the car gets going it runs fine....and the starting problem is also intermittent.

Took it to the dealer and they couldn't find anything wrong (no codes, etc). Is this bad gas or water in the tank? This car has 138K miles. Thanks!

last night I rolled the drivers side power window up, and released the switch. The window immediately rolled all the way down on its own, and now will not work. All other windows work fine. Any ideas?

One is resting on fuel line. Do I have to replace all of them?

Happens sporadicaly when brake light warning light goes on and returns when light goes off. Thanks.

The bulbs all check out OK, but there is no power to the fuses for the tail lights. HELP!!!

I have a bad alternator on my '99 V70XC. I want to swap out the alternator, in order to accomplish this I have to relieve the tension on the accessory belt before removing old alternator. What is the procedure to follow before attempting the swap. I've seen a YouTube video which seems to indicate that turning the tensioner counter to it's direction of rotation will relieve the tension, is this correct, if not, which direction works with a Volvo, if at all?

alternator was replaced with new one a week ago for high voltage msg on info in dash also battery light comes on and heater fan will cut on and off seams to happen more on take off over 1000 rpm brake light and abs light will also flash on at times you can cut the engine off and restart and lights go off have confirmed that voltage does go up off 17 volts any idea whats wrong

Is it easy to replace the filter on it's own or do you have to replace pump as well. Car will start but lose power immediately after start. It is off and on problem. Guessing it could be filter. Want to replace filter before the pump to see if that causes the problem...suggestions?

At what mileage do you recommend a serpentine belt be replaced?
