Volvo QuestionsWhat is the proper battery for my 2003 Volvo S80 T6? I'm trying to keep to the less expensive side. By brand would be great but as long as I know the requirements or specifications I should be ok to figure it out. Thank you in advace. (1 answer)
Does this seem normal? I had a 2000 S80 and at 193,000 my engine blew (to be expected at that mileage for something catastrophic for that to happen). Please help!!
Volvo RecallsEngine Starter Fails During Automatic Engine Stop Restart Function
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.
The third row side curtain air bags may not inflate fully when deployed in an accident. This could cause increased risk of occupant injury. Dealers will modify the D-pillar interior panels to allow full inflation of the third row air bags free of charge to resolve the concern.
The wiring harness for the side impact protection system (SIPS) may have been improperly routed, resulting in damage to the wiring. This could prevent the seat mounted side impact air bags from deploying in an accident. Dealers will inspect the routing of the SIPS wiring and will correct it, installing a protective sleeve as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
