The code on your Volvo Shows your fuel system running too rich ( bank 1). This is usually caused by a vacuum leak. Not usually a expensive repair. Needs to be tested for leaks. You are probably using more Fuel than Normal. Have It repaired more it causes any damage.

Could be a couple of issues, A/C system could be low on Freon and need recharging. Also with one side not working properly it could be Blend door related ( this is the door in the dash that opens and closes the air flow) . May not be a simple repair, Have it checked out by a qualified Technician.

I would suggest calling the Dealer with your vin number (serial number). It is found on your registration card, on drivers door jam or at bottom of front windshield. They can tell you without going to the dealer if any recalls have been issued. The vin number is 17 digits and letters long. A recall is usually repair at the dealer under warranty at no cost. Good Luck!

The lights are telling you something is going on and it needs to be inspected. It doesn't mean that it is a major issue. Have it checked out by a certified shop,(not a parts store) to have issue diagnose. It is impossible to tell what needs to be done without guessing and costing money for unneeded repairs.

A couple of questions, Is it leaking any fluids? How is it running? Is it burning a lot of fuel? It can cause more damage if you continue to drive, it could overheat, or burn a lot richer causing internal engine issues. If this has been a good mode of transportation and you count of it as your everyday car, you should not put the repair off. It could cost you a lot more to have repaired.

Check to make sure correct bulbs have been installed. If they were working properly before putting new bulbs in, retrace your steps. If problem is still occurring, you should have it inspected by a shop. Make sure you tell them what has been going on, it may help them find the issue sooner and save you some money.

Hi Volvo, For your info, the average age for a car in the U.S. is about 11.4 years and going up. Its not uncommon to see a cars mileage approaching 300, 000 now a days. You are fortunate that you are stilling driving your car and may have time to make a intelligent decision. It does sound like you are going to be doing repairs on a regular basis ( this is taking place of a car note). I would have the car inspected by a certified shop to determine condition of car. If you have been thinking about replacing and can afford it, now would be a good time to do this.
