Volvo ProblemsVolvo Extends Warranty on ETM Due to High Failure Rate
The electronic throttle module (ETM) has had a high failure rate, which can cause engine performance issues and check engine light illumination. Volvo has extended the warranty to 10 years/200,000 miles on the ETM.
The sway bar bushings commonly wear out, causing a knocking noise from the front of the vehicle. Replacing the worn bushings should correct this concern.
The engine may not start due to a failed starter control module. If the module has indeed failed, it will require replacement.
