Question Answered: 

Check the fuse for the brake lights first, then make sure the bulbs are OK. Then you should look at the brake light switch, some are adjustable, and will not work correctly if out of adjustment. The switch may also be defective. There are other possibilities but these are a good place to start!

This code normally points to a faulty transmission control module, but this is an expensive part and you should have an experienced Dodge technician diagnose the problem first.

Question Answered: 

If you smell gasoline, have it checked out yesterday! A fuel leak can cause a fire and a burned up vehicle may be the least of your problems, so don't procrastinate on this!

If you need the upper control arm (with ball joint) and the lower ball joint, plus alignment, it should run about $345.00 - $511.00 (not including tax, shop charges, diagnosis etc.). However since the ball joints came apart while driving, other damage may have been done. Make sure you have the ball joints on the other side checked out so this doesn't have the same problem!

I would recommend taking your vehicle to a shop that can flush your radiator, but that depends on what is inside your radiator. What is the problem you are having?

Question Answered: 

You A/C Coil (also known as the evaporator) is buried inside the dashboard and very difficult to access. And like hemicuda mentioned, the odor is from a bacteria growing on the evaporator, and some of the sprays are meant to kill the bacteria, so you are not masking the problem, you are removing the source of the problem. You may consider taking your vehicle that specializes in A/C work to address this.

Hi, When your dealing with an oil pressure light, it is a good idea to have the oil pressure checked. You can perform a visual check of the wiring to the oil pressure sender first, but if it is ok you should rule out a low oil pressure situation before moving on to a gauge problem.

Question Answered: 

If both of the speakers in the front are not working, check that the fader settings are correct. If that is OK, then you are looking at diagnosing the radio or amplifier output signals to the front speakers, which is fairly technical. I recommend you take it to a stereo shop and have them check it out.

Good news, there is a Technical Service Bulletin regarding this trouble code. Take it in to a Volvo dealer and they can check to see that you have the most current transmission software available. I believe it's possible to upgrade all the software in your vehicle at one time, and this may be a good way to go to avoid other software related issues. Follow this link to our Bulletin page for your vehicle - http://repairpal.com/volvo-xc90-2004#tsb_9270
