The P720 (which i'm guessing is suppose to be a P0 or 170 means its transmission related...i dont know what the 20 stands for thats the exact specific code/problem but it gives you an idea...the two P1600 codes are Manufactur made and they are both about PCM-Auxiliary Devices..

So i'm guessing that the one that is making your car not move is the P700 code..

hope that gets you started

I have a 2001 vovlo s80 with the codes p1618 p0705 po733 how can i fix

PO705 is Transmission Range Sensor Circuit Malfunction. PO733 is Incorrect 3rd Gear Ration Information. P1618 means that the ECU and the TCM are not communicating properly. PO705 & PO733 can be related to P1618. Check the wiring going to the transmission. Look for a pinched wire from the car being put on a rack or possibly an accident you may have had recently. If you can find no problems with the wiring or connections then it is time to see a professional transmission expert. It may just be that the transmission has an internal problem.

I have a 2000 Volvo s80 turbo, I think I may have two troubles here, first when im driving in traffic the car is starting to die when I'm slowing down, if my foot is not completely on the brake...

Check for vacuum leaks. Also make sure any air intake boots are on tightly. If not, this could give faulty readings to the MAF.

Is an engine light on? If so, get the codes pulled free at an auto parts store.

There are 4 codes I need to know about P0810, P1132, P1618, and P1633, 2001 Volvo V-70 24T

810 neutral check, incorrect connection
  • Check the transmission and control module connectors. Check for contact resistance and oxidation according to Checking wiring and terminals. Permanent faults
  • 1132 front o2 sensor signal too high
    1618 dtc is in another module
    Volvo does not provide information regarding DTC P1633 for many of their models.
    However, it has been reported that various Volvo engine control modules will produce this code. The code is associated with a missing or inaccurate vehicle speed signal from the ABS control module and may be accompanied by DTC P0722 or P1618.

    Possible causes:
    - Defective vehicle speed signal to the ABS control module
    - CAN connection problem
    - Defective ABS control module
    - Defective engine control module

    Manufacture codes associated with this P code may include ECM-510f, 530d.

    I have a 200 Volvo s80. last week when my wife started it, all the lights came on... stc,brake failure, check engine light, brake light..they all are on and i cant seem to find the problem.. can someone...

    I have a similar problem, I am going to assume that most of the lights have gone out and you are left with the check engine and a transmission service message. Check the OBD for the error codes and see what they say. If they are P0722, P1618, P1633 it is likely your ABS module. This module appears to have a life span of 5 years to 80,000 miles average before it needs to be replaced. Other symptoms of a bad module would be that the ABS light comes on while driving down the road. Than goes out on the next engine restart or two. Victor Rocha is reconditioning ABS modules for $125.00 and upgrading them to better than factory. There are instructions on the web of where and how to remove the ABS module. This is better than the dealer's new module for $995.00 plus installation.

    Similar - all ABS, STC, check engine lights, car rough running

    Since I do not understand your "won't drive", I will suggest this. If before this problem your ABS light would come on and than it would go out after you restart your engine. The problem might be the ABS module. If you can read the OBD error codes you likely will have P0722, P1618 and P1633. A message that says the transmission needs service. From what I have found on the web is replacing the ABS module will correct the problem. It appears that the ABS module has a life of 5 years to 80,000 miles on average. Volvo networks a lot of its computer information thru the ABS, thus a bad ABS can indicate a bad transmission. I am told that Auto Zone auto parts can read the error codes for you. But they may require you to being your car to their stop. You can also purchase your own ODB II reader from and auto parts store or Sears. Hope that helps.

    My S80 codes

    the p0720 code is a common code in every has to do with an issue in the transmission. what exactly i dont know how to answer that.

    the other two codes are vehicle specific codes which means the manufactur made these codes specifically for this vehicle and it has something to do with the PCM-auziliary devices..
