Volvo S60 sensor ?

Our 2005 Volvo S60 has a rough idle when cold and the check engine light comes on with a text message to "slow down or shift up" even though the transmission is changing OK.

    I had the same problem with my c30 a few months ago, it happened to me twice, i had rought idling and then when i would step on the gas, rpm would go wild from almost dying (~600rpm) - 2000rpm, then i saw the message "TRY SLOW DOWN OR SHIFT UP", i brought it to the dealer, they said volvo can't retreive error logs(which i highly doubt), and then i left it there for 2 weeks for them to check if the problem would come out, they claimed that there were no problems, but since then, the problem didn't come back, if only they told me what they did..

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.

Fix the switchblade key with a broken locking mechanism so that when it is inserted slot down the case of the key does not hang just over the knee(1/4 Inch) like a lever.. with a key chain the broken switchblade key is hanging on the right knee and can easily turn the ignition switch off..similar to the GM recall problem..Solution insert key slot side up so key does not hang and take the key chain off..2nd solution fix the switchblade key locking mechanism so it doesn;t matter whether key is slot up or down..

I have a 02 S60. Was having the same problem. Turned out to be the Ignition Coil. There is one per cylinder. Looks like a boot that goes on top of the spark plug. Have like an auto parts store pull the codes to find which cylinder is"mis-firing". Or inspect them and look for defects such as cracks.

    Your cooling liquid level is low. You can tip it up with watter, however when winter comes you should change all of the fluid to match the non-freezing temperature

Volvo P0717 Input Speed Sensor


The P0700 is not a true fault code, it just means that the powertrain control module has requested the Transmission control module to turn on the check engine light to alert you of a fault. The P0717 is the one you need diagnosed, it is the real problem,.

Lately hard to start and idles roughly while cold


If it has not generated a "check engine " light, troubleshooting will be more difficult. You have a Cold Routine for starting that is triggered by temperature. It is possible that a temperature sensor is not good and therefore the Cold Routine is not cycling.

Contact Autozone, or Advance autoparts for a scan or talk about this part that you may need.

I get a warning message, "HIGH ENGINE TEMPERATURE-STOP ENGINE" from our 2002 S60 Volvo upon starting. The check engine light also comes on. The electric fan come on and runs for approx. 2-3 minutes....


Mine is doing the same thing. I have taken it to the shop and the mechanic can't find anything wrong with it. When he resets the diagnostic, the car runs fine for a few days then it happens again. I'm thinking it is something due to the cold temps here in NW Iowa. It is obviously not a cold weather car!

My volvo s60 cuts off while driving


Actually cuts out while driving, or when at idle stopped at a light or something? If it is the latter, have your oxygen sensors checked and maybe your fuel pressure sensor or MAP sensor.
