There are two pumps, one n the tank, and one under the car. Did they replace both, or the one in the tankK

Question Answered: 

I don't know if there's new information I'm not aware of, but when I worked on these, we replaced just the module. You are the customer and they should replace exactly what you request, or take it elsewhere. Be sure to find a good European shop, or another Volvo Dealership.

Your vehicle has identified a problem with the alarm system. You will need to have a shop with the appropriate tool access the computer in your car that holds the information about the alarm. Try a european specialist or Volvo dealer. Good luck

This sounds like the transmission is acting up. I suggest you have a Volvo shop/dealership look at it, make sure the software in the transmission computer is up to date, the fluid is in good condition, and there are no faults with the transmission. They should perform a full diagnostic of the computer system to ensure everything is in working order. Good Luck. If you need a shop, look here: http://repairpal.com/volvo-within-10-miles-of-08690

Question Answered: 

It's a good idea to update the software first, delete all the diagnostic info in the computer and drive it, as long as it's safe to do so. I doubt this will cure the issu, but it's worth a shot.

Very likely the junction where the core is connected to the coolant pipes. There are o-rings and seals that need to be removed and installed properly. Also, if there any scratches in the junction housing it will leak.

Question Answered: 

There are 3 main parts to the immobilizer system. The ignition key, the antena around the ignition lock, and the control module. The only thing that would need any sort of cleaning would be the electrical terminals that connects the antenna and control module. How do you plan on cleaning the terminals?

Question Answered: 

This is a common issue because the plastic around the button starts to crack and cause the button to jam, or the shift-lock cable is jamming because the release button is jamming. I always replace the knob if that is bad or un-jam the release button to fix it, but you can give the WD-40 a chance first. Let us know if that works.

Question Answered: 

Could be the shifter or something internally in the transmission. It will require some troubleshooting to see what is causing this exactly.

Question Answered: 

Stephen, There is a tool in the trunk that allows you to manually raise and lower the top. You will have to look at the owners manual to figure it out since it requires a few steps. The chime is on probably because the roof is not operating properly. I would have someone look at this for you, it may be something simple that addresses both these issues.
