The message appeared 2 days ago and I can't use the media screen to do anything else.
The message says to service the car. I can't get it to go away, and it is preventing me from doing anything else.
How do i see what my vehicle message is? I already clicked on the left tip of the blinkers. Still won't tell me what the message is. It just scrolls then goes back to the same message
You have one vehicle message. Help! This happened once before. Took it in , can't remember what they said or did.

No noises, coolant and oil perfect, timing belt is near new but the compression in all 5 cylinders is down to 45 psi? I have never herd of all of the cylinders of an engine losing compression at the same time? any thoughts on what may be the cause?

Found 2 issues while checking out a clean 1 owner S60 I want to buy.

#1
After extensive examination by me, we took the 5cyl auto trans T5 S60 to a local repair shop. They ran a long computer diagnostic and found nothing and verified the car's computer was not reset. Next, it was put up in the air and suspension, engine, trans examined, and everything I couldn't check on the ground was fine. The car is super clean and has many maintenance records, there is nothing suspicious. Yet on the way back, stopping a few times on steep hills, the car rolled back as I took my foot off the brake and was moving to the accelerator to move forward. It was as if it was a stick. I don't know if it would have kept going because instinctively I hit the brakes. Sometimes it didn't happen.

I've never experienced an automatic acting this way. Researching this, some people have various explanations for it, including HSA, but I think they are guessing. I called a trans mechanic that I know that is very good, but he doesn't touch Volvos and had no information.

All automatics I've ever driven can hold themselves on an incline w/no braking. Can this be normal on this car? If the computer shows no issue, like a low idle or bad trans sensors, what can the problem be?

The mouth of the dipstick tube where the plastic handle sits had some surface rust and the top of the dipstick may have had a touch of rust too. The oil is due for a change. Condensation? Anything serious?

Should I hesitate to buy what is an otherwise very clean S60?
Hi
The radio/media screen is broken. Can it be replaced? One of our kids hit it and we cannot see any information anymore.
The car runs well but at a certain moment there is a complete black out for 1 second. After that the car runs like before. The problem appears just sometime in different situations. I'm afraid to experience this on a highway.
After the black out the memory of the radio is cancelled.

The tester brings no help and the mechanic doesn't know how to solve the problem!
My ac in my 06 Volvo s40 says it's full when I try to recharge it, ac on high, is there a fuse or relay that could have gone bad? And how do you check to see if it's the compressor?
Is it software or the radio
