Make sure that you have the transmission software updated. Volvo has had many upgrades on their transmission's control software to address these exact symptoms.

SOURCE: Volvo S60 sensor ?

Sounds like an oxygen sensor (there are two). I had a recent problem where I had a rough idle and my S60 continued to stall out. Turned out to be the rear oxygen sensor. After replacement, car idles nicely and car drives normally.

What this means p0785 and p0700?


P0700 is a generic transmission code

P0785 is a shift solenoid malfunction in the transmission probably 3-2 downshift. Someone will have to spend some time checking the decision tree for the P0785 code.

Hello here is a list of fault codes for your car:

http://www.volvoforums.org.uk/showthread.php?t=42231

P0785 Shift/Timing Solenoid Malfunction/ 3-2 Shift Solenoid Circuit Electrical

This is maybe the crankshaft position censor failing.

Visit a volvo dealer for detailed fault finding, the ecu has to be set to reset, when the censor has been renewed.

Good luck

P0700 code for a 04 volvo s60


Symptoms of a P0700 DTC may include:
1. Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illumination
2. The transmission may exhibit drivability problems like slipping, etc.


Causes: More often then not, the cause of this code is that there is a transmission problem of some kind. The TCM detected the problem and set a code. P0700 means that a fault code is stored in the TCM. However this doesn't rule out the possibility of a failed PCM or TCM (unlikely).

Possible Solutions: For a P0700 the only real solution is to acquire a scan tool that will communicate with the transmission control module. Extracting this code from the TCM will be the first step in repairing the fault in the transmission.If the TCM compatible scan tool will not communicate with the Transmission Control Module then that is a good indication that there may be a fault with the TCM itself.

What does P0785 mean


PO785 is a shift solenoid malfunction code. Could be just solenoids that need replacement. If it has the GM trans, it's a big job as solenoids are under side cover of trans axle. Sub frame removal required. Pete

Error code P0785 on Volvo V70 XC -00. What's the problem? I have also error code P1618.


P0785 - Shift/Timing Solenoid Malfunction (3-2 shift solenoid is not working properly)
P1618 - Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) in another control module (in this case, in the Trans Module)

Flush the transmission, get any software upgrades available, reset the adaptors and try it, nothing to lose.

If it doesn't work you will need a transmission. Solenoids are internal, that's what controls the shifts.
They could be faulty or the valve body but one should always do what I said once, if it doesn't fix it, you're looking at a transmission.

The resetting of adaptors is crucial if you update the software. It's basically wiping the memory of the TCU (transmission controller) and teaching it how to shift properly again.

Also could check this TSB...

The reason why I ask, is because anytime there are MULTIPLE transmission solenoid codes, its usually the result of a failed ignition switch. However, since only two codes appeared and were one at a time, I think at this point, its unlikely the result of an ignition switch failure.

P0785 is for the 3-2 downshift solenoid. Either the solenoid is faulty, or something got damaged while the 1-2 solenoid was being replaced. (connector knocked loose, wire rubbing on pan or valvebody, etc...).

The 3-2 solenoid is #394 in the picture below, which is at the opposite end of the 1-2 solenoid.

P0785 is for the 3-2 solenoid and that is 394 in the picture. Is it likely to fix it? yes, but of course I cannot guarantee that it will, sitting behind my computer and never seeing the vehicle.

Hope this helps.

Volvo S60 Fault code 045 What does this code mean???


Take your car, if possible to drive, to a local auto parts store. Here they should be able to perform a free (usually) diagnostics test which only takes a few minutes, and this will be able to tell you what the code means as far as which component or part needs service or replaced.

If you cannot drive the vehicle, write the code down and take it to a parts dealer and ask them if they can look up the code, or search Google.com and type in "troubleshoot codes for vovlo s60".

This should bring up a list of websites and services that will better help you resolve this issue.



Please let me know if you need further assistance.
