Question about 2003 Volvo S60

1 Answer

Fault messages I get a position light out fault message and all the lights are working. How can I fix this?

    I guess this is a known problem with the S60. Try slamming the trunk, that has worked for me (at least temporarily). Also, I have heard that using a generic bulb to replace the volvo OEM bulbs can fix the fault semi-permanently.

The resistance of the bulb could be higher than normal. Take an ohmeter and check the resistance of the bulb with the others or a new bulb. Sorry, I can't remember what it should read.

How do i get rid/ reset message xc90 "transmission service urgent" i have already taken to volvo dealer about six months ago. they could not pin point issue on diagnostic. Cheers


You first have to retrieve fault codes from your computer network then you have to diagnose the systems/circuits indicated by the fault codes to determine what the cause of the failure is, then you must repair the system/circuit at fault and then reset the computer system. If the dealer cannot do this, I don't know who can. Did they tell you what fault codes they were getting? If so, we can look up the troubleshooting charts for those codes as well as do a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) search to see if this is a known problem with a known fix. Without the codes, your guess is as good as mine.

The dashborad says suspension fault


Problems with the air suspension seem to be less frequent with the Sport than in previous Range Rover models, but they still do occur. One owner reports "Whenever my RRS is lowered to "access" level a suspension system fault message apprears.". Another reports " Had the RRS back less than 2 hours and another "suspension fault." Also kept receiving messages that the vehicle is raising slowly and vehicle will raise when system cools. Couldn't even drive because it wouldn't raise out of access mode. Anyway, back to the dealer. Picked the RRS up again today-dealer said the EAS compressor was faulty and replaced it. So far everything is ok." Overall, most of the problems seem to be related to bad suspension height sensors or bad compressors. Angus Wade of the Czech Republic had his suspension light come on when in Germany; it started yellow and then red, then disappeared when he stopped and restarted the engine -- and has not happened since. His dealer said they have seen this a bit.

Weak Compressor: An official Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) LS-204-004 addresses "ELECTRONIC AIR SUSPENSION (EAS) WARNING MESSAGE AND LAMP ILLUMINATION". This deals with the warning message "Suspension Fault - Normal Height Only" message appearing with the Air Suspension Warning Lamp on. Computer diagnosis shows pressure increasing too slowly or unable to pressurize, with no air leaks. The usual problem is the compressor exhaust valve sticking, causing an internal air leak when the compressor is active. The bulletin recommends renewing the air compressor (RQG500090 is the latest specification air compressor with a stronger exhaust valve return spring)and installing and updating the air suspension control module software using WDS disc 13 or later.

Suspension Fault Message (random): One owner reported getting random suspension fault messages on his brand new RR Sport purchased in June 2006, well after the fix was in for the weak compressor. His suspension Fault message and Suspension Warning Light (Amber) came on after 5 days of ownership. He stopped and restarted the car, which caused the light and message to disappear, but they came on again after 5 minutes. Later the same day, the warnings disappeared again.

I have heard that on 2006 models, EAS fault messages can be caused by an internal leak in the Air Suspension compressor exhaust valve. The fix is said to be replacing the compressor updating the software.

Hope helps.

I have an S Type Jaguar 3.0Lt manual - problem is I keep getting a warning message on dash board in orange saying FAIL SAFE ENGINE MODE - a red light comes up next to the message and cuts the excelatator -...


This is probably a position-er or sensor fault somewhere within the power train. It is unusual that it does not show up on a diagnostic scan or fault log. Are you using the correct jaguar specific diagnostics? - this is important! It may be that the fault is a power on problem that may not show on idle test - get the car to a Jaguar specialist and have a test drive with the diagnostics connected - I am sure the fault will then be shown. hope this helps - good luck.

WHY IS THE SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT ON IN MY SATURN??


The Check Engine light will light when the ECU stores a trouble code.
Counting the Flashes
To retrieve trouble codes, turn the ignition key to the "on" position with the engine OFF.
The Check engine light will flash many short blinks. The total number of blinks equals the code number. For example, flash,pause, flash,flash = code 12.If more than one code is stored, the Check engine light will flash the codes in sequence (lowest to highest) with a pause between each code. The codes will repeat until the key is turned to the OFF position.

11 Transaxle codes present 12 Diagnostic check only 13 Oxygen sensor circuit 14 Coolant sensor/high temperature 15 Coolant sensor/low temperature 17 PCM fault - pull-up resistor 19 6X signal fault (92-95 models) 21 Throttle position sensor-voltage high 22 Throttle position sensor-voltage low 23 IAT circuit low 24 VSS circuit-no signal 25 IAT circuit-Temp out of high range 26 Quad driver output fault 32 EGR system fault 33 MAP sensor - voltage out of range high 34 MAP sensor - voltage out of range low 35 IAC - rpm out of range 41 Ignition control circuit-open or shorted 42 Bypass circuit - shorted or open 41/42 IC control circuit grounded/bypass open 43 Knock sensor circuit shorted or open 44 O2 sensor indicates lean condition 45 O2 sensor indicates rich condition 46 Power steeringpressure circit(91 models)open or shorted 49 High idle indicates vacuum leak 51 PCM memory error 53 System voltage error 55 A/D error 58 trans fluid temperature too high 59 Trans fluid temperature too low 66/67 A/C pressure sensor 81 ABS message fault 82 PCM internal communication fault

"Cruise Not Available" & "Check Rear Lights" flash from message c


Hi Don

I recomend you try this first of all.

Try disconnecting the positive battery + & negative - terminals.

Turn the ignition key several times to erase the computers memory.

Reconect the battery + terminal and then - and start the car.

Your fault code, will hopefully not return.

Good Luck !
