Question about 2004 Volvo S40

1 Answer

Uncommanded operation of electric windows

This happened to my friend's S40: she came out to it the morning after a very wet and windy night to find that ALL the electric windows had lowered (so it was pretty damp inside)! She certainly didn't leave it like that the night before......

I suspect an electrical fault, possibly water/relay-related?

Hi, there was a problem with the rear lights seal allowing water to penetrate into the interior car floor. The windows are wet inside because of the condensation caused by the wet floor / carpets.

2003 Volvo S40 1.9T. when I start the car in the morning the engine knocks during 40 seconds and then it stops knocking and it operates properly without knocking. what should I do to have this knocking...


well this happens because the oil drains to the pan when sitting for a long time so when starting it takes a few for the oil pump to go though the motor this is normal best thing i could say is to buy some zmax or duel lube to help it from friction in the first start up.

Poorly electrics on volvo s40 after valet - what do I do


Check your fuses, if all are operational make sure they a seated properly. We have this type of problem, but live on a dirt road and the vibrations sometimes unseat the fuses. An easy way to check is to see if these problems go away if; when the car is running you give the fuse panel, under the glove box, a solid whack with your open hand. This is a temporary fix we utilize three of four times a year.

Car sputters at start up in wet or damp weather


spray your distributor wires and cap with silicone spray. If this does not work you will have to replace distributor cap as it will have a hair line crack in it.

I have a 1997 bug eye corolla, and one night forgot to close the drivers door electric window and as luck would have it, it rained all night. The next morning after realizing what I had done tried to close...


The switch is probably all that got wet, and then would have corroded. Take it out, clean it up, and it'll probably work. SPray it with some electrical contact cleaner, or brake cleaner.
