Volvo Repair and Maintenance
A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Volvo
The automatic transmission may develop shifting problems and/or the Check Engine Light may illuminate due to internal component failure and/or software issues. It is always best to be sure the transmission control module has the latest software installed when any major transmission repair is performed.
It is not uncommon for the exterior light bulbs to burn out prematurely. No repair option has been reported other than replacing the failed bulb.
Premature automatic transmission failure is common. Diagnoses of the fault will be necessary to determine if repair or replacement is the proper repair.

The auto stop / start feature of the engine may fail, as the starter motor fuse may blow and the engine may not restart. Dealers will replace the starter motor fuse with a higher amperage fuse free of charge to resolve the concern.
Certain vehicles equipped with 5-cylinder engine are being recalled because the driver may not be properly warmed of a low engine oil pressure condition. Without proper warning the driver could continue to operate the vehicle until it stalls due to engine failure. Dealers will update the vehicle's software so the driver is alerted should there be a low oil pressure situation.
The windshield wipers may run continuously and the headlights, high beams and turn signals may not operate due to the malfunction of the central electronic module. Dealers will upgrade the module software free of charge to resolve the concern.
