Volvo ProblemsVolvo Extends Warranty on ETM Due to High Failure Rate
The electronic throttle module (ETM) has a higher than normal failure rate. There is a possible extended warranty and/or a software upgrade offered by Volvo for this problem.
The anti-lock brake system (ABS) warning light and/or other dash warning lights may illuminate due to a failed ABS Control Module. Replacement of the failed module is generally required to correct this concern.
Premature automatic transmission failure is common. Diagnoses of the fault will be necessary to determine if repair or replacement is the proper repair.
Volvo QuestionsI recently tuned my 96 850 Turbo, now it starts to lope when I put it in gear (1 answer)
It runs great out on the road, and it idles good too, but when I put it in gear or turn the AC on it starts to lope like it has a racing cam in it..it has a recent full tune up.. I can unplug the idle control sensor and it kills the engine, same with the mass air flow sensor..any clues?
The radiator hoses when squeezed and car is off they put make the reservoir gurgle. The car is over heating and spilling coolant from the reservoir once its heating up. No leaks anywhere.
I have a 2002 Volvo s60 2.4. Then VIN is YV1RS61RX22098778. The transmission is shifting rough so I would like to change the filter and fluid. Upon research I am finding mixed reviews whether or not there is even a filter and where it is located. Can someone help? Thanks
Volvo RecallsAutomatic Closing Function Of Sunroof Can Be Accidentally Triggered
The automatic closing feature of the sunroof may be tripped accidentally because of how the sunroof switch is mounted in the overhead console. Dealers will perform a software upgrade that disables the auto-close function free of charge to resolve the concern.
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.
