Hi guys, i have an issue with my car, last year i bought a volvo s60 2009 in florida. The car was off for 8 months, i told a friend to start the engine every 15 days but, i think he forgot do it, so when he decides to start the engine, the battery was discharged, i think the alarm and other electrical systems discharges the battery, with the battery recharged, he starts the car, he told me that the alarm automatically activates the lights and horns begun to sound, he deactivate this with the remote control key. Now the flasher light doesn’t turns off. Any idea? The car is now in Peru-South America and the Volvo dealer only repairs cars sold in the country.

my car shakes when speed is between 80-120 km the steering wheel and the car shakes, i made wheel alignment but still the same , any help please?

smoked after blown fuse..try to turn off..keeped turning,,now replaced fuse,, will not start,,..

The check engine light has come on and off for about the last 10,000 miles; vehicle has 105,000 miles. Major tune-up has been done and car has been checked several times and codes reset only to have light appear again. Amount of fuel in tank does not seem to have any correlation to light. After last service am detecting a very strong gasoline odor but no evidence of leak. Service included a gasoline additive and last time I returned vehicle because of odor all gasoline was changed to clean out tank. Odor persists. Check engine light on again. Big puzzle.

Cylinder # 2 is misfiring when engine is cold. The compression on that cylinder is around 55 but only when engine is cold. Compression is normal when engine is warmed up. Had new ignition coil installed on Cyl #2 and new plugs as well as injecting top engine cleaner and cleaned PCV system. All to no avail. Engine light stayed off during hot weather but comes on in colder weather with misfire code.

the display will have partial letters, or garbled info. Sometines it comes on upside down. How can I fix this? The display isn't burned out, it works perfectly sometimes.

Right front panel has body damage from an SUV backing into it. Body shop estimate stated "not original manufacturer parts". Should I request Volvo parts? Will non original parts decrease the value of my car?

I recently purchased this vehicle and the owner's manual does not show the location of this filter. I would like to replace it because I do not know if or when it has been replaced. When I use the climate control and the fan is on high there are particles that fly out the vents.

I have the 2.5 L Turbo version of this model. Recently, it has been running very sluggish. I just had an oil change 500 miles ago, and I alternate between 89/91 grade oil per tank fill up. The manual states that higher grade gas is not a requirement for engine reliability. However, the way it is driving now, it's almost like it isn't a turbo at all.

I made an appointment at the Volvo dealership here in Vegas. I see exactly what is going to happen. There will be something wrong with the transmission, and they will say it is because I am not using 91 gas. They already tried to tell me over the phone that 91 was REQUIREMENT for the engine, not a suggestion from the manufacturer for better performance.

Now it could also be because it's very hot right now in Vegas and I know that switching to a higher octane in hot weather can sometimes help.

Anyone else having this issue?

When you turn steering colmumn, the car will crank....acts like it is a short inns the steering column....

After car warms up as I accelerate it feels like runs out of gas. This stall quickly stops and will run fine for a few mins and while I push on pedal it just stalls. Have changed fuel filter, new plugs, lucas injector cleaner, air filter. Seems to do it more often now. no ck engine light comes on.

pcv box clogged, it was replaced, w/ all applicaable hoses and line, vehicle consumes 2.5 quarts of oil in 8 days. no visible leaks to explain oil loss. oil leaking oil where charged air hose hits the throttle plate.

start car,push on brake pedal to shift outa park,hearing clicking noise from shift lever also feel it.wont shift outa park when its below 55 out or humid

Can anything "BAD" happen to the engine components or the engine it self?

Dealership cannot locate issue. Suggested I have all connections cleaned for $650.00 aand no guarantee that would work. Can anyone help with this? The turn signal was replaced as well as the solenoid a few month back. They check that and said it was functioning properly.

Have a 2002 Volvo S60 with Code P0785 only. Is this an easier fix or possible c

will replacing it solve the intermittent circuit problem?
trouble code P2407
check engine light came on yesterday.

this is a orange light on the dash

is it the altenator

Engine only has 35,000 White smoke out of tail pipe after it warming up. Replace the PCV valve/hoses, Turbo as mention by mechanic. Did a compression test and good results 170 lbs with one cylinder ar 165 lbs. Could it be the valve stem seals ? or do I need to drive the car to clean out the oil in the pipes. I have started it and ran it for 20 mins. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

I was informed by Volvo that my sway bar bushings are plastic and getting worn and would need to be replaced at a cost of $650.00. Is it really necessary to have them replace and who is Columbus, Ohio besides Volvo would replace for a cheaper cost?

Is this reasonable and what is a reasonable estimate. The car drives fine..ie I am not having any issues that I can detect.

the driver side is still working

where is the charcoal canister and the hoses that could leak?

Where are the headlight fuse(s) located? Engine compartment? trunk? Cabin?

My passenger side low beam headlight went out I replaced both sides. Both worked for a short time then the passenger side failed again. My message reads "bulb dipped" ?
I must have not gotten the bulb back in the holder correctly because when I inspected the bulb it was smashed. Can a bulb "blow up"? It was working after I installed it and after 1 or 2 trips out it was destroyed! Now I only have drivers side again. I've tested the bulb I'm using to replace and it's good, but there's no power to the passenger side. The fuse is good because the drivers side works. Could it be in the light switch? How can there be power to only 1 headlight?

My park assist failed shortly before I replaced the battery. Could this be due to a low charge on the battery? Also, once battery was replaced, the CD player went out. Swedish car place across the street quoted me $2k to fix the individual components, but it seems like a simple computer upgrade or reset would solve this issue considering everything was centered around the battery being replaced. Anyone have a similar issue?
