The message says to service the car. I can't get it to go away, and it is preventing me from doing anything else.
Was running fine. Parked it, battery went dead. Replaced the battery now it cranks but won't fire. Was told it is probably the immobilizer and will need to be reset. 240k miles

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

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?
The radio/media screen is broken. Can it be replaced? One of our kids hit it and we cannot see any information anymore.

My 2001 Volvo s60 starts very well but when I put it in gear it cuts off immediately
On start up ac clutch engages then 5 seconds turns off and doesn't come back on. Checked all fuses and relays good. Freon is correct. Original compressor
My car, 2005 S60R, threw engine code P0088 high pressure. A few days later it stalled on the highway, and would not restart. After sitting for a few days it started and ran for about 1 second, then stopped. Now will not start again at all. Trying to figure out if my fuel pump is bad, or if it is the PEM or pressure sensor on the rail? How do I determine which is bad so I don't buy unneeded parts?
all the lights and everything comes on but have to jump start it and then it runs real good
I've changed the battery and same thing, had the alternator rebuilt and still the same thing, can you please help?
