Volvo S80 QuestionsI saw a leak under the on the upper right side of the car. Can anyone tell me what that might be? (1 answer)
Does this seem normal? I had a 2000 S80 and at 193,000 my engine blew (to be expected at that mileage for something catastrophic for that to happen). Please help!!
Volvo S80 RecallsEngine Starter Fails During Automatic Engine Stop Restart Function
The auto stop / start feature of the engine may fail, as the starter motor fuse may blow and the engine may not restart. Dealers will replace the starter motor fuse with a higher amperage fuse free of charge to resolve the concern.
The windshield wipers may run continuously and the headlights, high beams and turn signals may not operate due to the malfunction of the central electronic module. Dealers will upgrade the module software free of charge to resolve the concern.
A software error within the Central Electronic Module (CEM) will result in the "TPMS Service Required" message appearing after approximately 15 minutes of accumulated driving over 25 mph. The error will prevent the TPMS from warning the driver that a tire needs air. Underinflated tires can result in tire overloading and overheating, which could lead to a blowout and possible crash. Dealers will reprogram the CEM to correct this concern. The Volvo recall number is 256.
