There are also relays that control these reverse lights and brake lights,these relays are located on the driver side in the trunk (side panel) all these relays are interchangeable. good luck

Yeah it's definitely the switch. Basically doesn't sense that the car's in reverse so won't turn the lights on. As far as where it's at...that I can't help you with. Volvo's tend to be a little odd...

Check engine light suddenly came on. Car has been running well. What coul dbe the problem. This is a 99 V70 Volvo wagon with 160,000 miles on it. I bought it 2 months ago and trustworthy mechanics told me...


The information below was complied by me, it explains what causes the check engine light to come on and the process of finding the cause.

When the Check Engine light (or Service Engine Soon) is turned on, the systems computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible system faults (the gas cap is just one of them) that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen/Oriley and Autozone parts stores (USA only) do this testing for free.

Transmission when in Reverse does not function


Change mechanics, try a specialized guy who only does Volvos.. better than dealer better than some **** shop.
It sounds like the gear sensor but a specialized guy will quickly diagnose... for parts, head to an online scrap yard or ebay, kijijijijijijijijij.

You probably need to get the codes cleared on the ecu before the engine light will go off. Even after you fix the problem, the computer doesn't know that the problem has been solved until the fault codes have been cleared.

S60 Auto my problem is the engine surges when at idle


Hi, I had a similar problem. It's caused by the throttle position sensor. Your car may also go into reduced performance a.k.a. 'limp mode' after a while. Disconnect the negative terminal (-) on your battery overnight and reconnect it. It sorted out my problem.

Reverse lights 89 volvo 240 sedan


Hi,
Your brief description doesn't state whether auto/manual? I would be looking at the reverse light switch on the gearbox.
Take the clip off and bridge the connection with a paper clip or similar, keep it away from the vehicle as you will blow a fuse, turn ignition on and bingo, hopefully Blackpool illuminations back of your 240?
Good Luck!
Please remember to rate my effort.

Transmission Service Required 2001 Volvo S60 T5


Hi,

These cars had a few issues with the transmissions. Sometimes upgrading the software and flushing the transmission will help, sometimes a new valve body will fix the problem, but often the transmission will need replacement due to internal failure.

The first step is to have a shop read out all the fault codes, read all the service bulletins and tech notes from Volvo regarding the transmission problems and then make a decision based on all of that information.

Good Luck,

Bret
