Question about 1999 Volvo S80

1 Answer

I believe it is the engine light

There is an orange light that is constant and it looks as though it is the engine light? It is not in the manual but is always on. Do I need to be concerned and what does it mean

Page 3-28. I believe you are describing the check engine light. It comes on to alert you that the engine computer has detected a problem. Have it scanned for codes. Post the codes in the comments below and I'll do my best to help.

Whistling sound when pushing on gas


If the "check engine" light illuminates, it will either blink or remain constant, depending on the problem. Either way, you should have the vehicle checked by a mechanic, although a blinking light or, on some cars, a red light instead of a yellow/orange light indicates a problem that needs immediate attention. In late-model cars, a blinking light usually indicates an engine misfire so severe that unburned fuel is being dumped into the exhaust system, where it can quickly damage the catalytic converter, requiring an expensive repair. If that happens, you should reduce power and have the car or truck looked at as soon as possible. If the light is steady, the problem is not an emergency, but you should schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

Today's automotive computers often try to compensate when there's a problem; so you may not notice deterioration in performance, even though your fuel mileage is suffering and your vehicle is emitting unacceptable levels of hydrocarbons and other pollutants. This and other additional details can find it in Check Engine and OBD Fault Codes articles.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

I'm installing a gps tracking unit on one of our landscape trucks. It's a 97 gmc/chevy 2500. I need to connect it to the ignition(12v dc) and constant power (12v dc)


your looking for an orange wire for your ignition and a yellow wire for constant power i believe. it's easiest to find them behind your deck/cd changer. just cut the wires and slice into them before the connection point of your deck wiring harness

Constant light on dashboard


My '01 TDI had the same issue and apparently it was a switch gone bad behind the horn and airbag. . . so no idea if the airbag would have worked had I been in an accident. Definately worth going to VW and having it looked at though. Better safe than sorry.
