SOURCE: Brake light and battery light are on when car

I would look closely at the charging /electrical system and primarily the alternator.This unit under load should put out 100 amps and maintain voltage over 13.6volts to charge correctly and have the capacity to run all the electrical accessories you have mentioned...

SOURCE: check engine light - 240 enfgine running rich

It could be a number of things but must be diagnosed via computer code check. If you are unable to do so yourself, find a reputable Volvo mechanic. It could be the air mass meter, a bad O2 sensor or something related. Mine turned out not to be the air meter but a bad ground wire going to it. Didn't find out until $400.00 later.

SOURCE: car won,t start sometimes & check engine light

before changing any more parts there are grounds on the engine that need cleaned one on the back of intake manifold then you have to remove battery tray clean up the ground there then clean where the tray bolts up as this aids in chassis grounding remove ground cable from bellhousing before you reassemble install star washers btween cable ends and where they bolt up this will dig into ground surface and cables making a better ground then remove turn signals in front there are two on right side and one on left side cleanup and star washer then there is the ground spots for the ecm inside removr kick panel on right side clean up and star washer if the starter doesnt work after this starter is probably bad but the other codes will probably clear out

SOURCE: engine dies in stop and

1999 300M 150,000 Miles

Car dies when coming off acceleration or at idle in traffic or at a stop. I can watch the Tach go to 0 RPM, some times it will restart immediately other times it is hard to start, so far I have always been able to re-start it and Drive on. Does anybody have verified fix for this issue, I have seen posts saying can and crank sensor, throttle body, EGR, and many more ideas... Do not really want to just start replacing parts with the hope that I eventually get a fix. Help...

Battery barely starting car, engine only rev to 2500 rpm


Loose or corroded battery cables, Loose fan belt not turning alternator fast enough, Bad alternator, check the battery with a Voltmeter, voltage with engine stopped. should be slightly over 12V Start engine and check again.. shoiuld be over 14V. this is if the alternator is putting out a charge. Chech the output at the alternator. the BATT connection. usually a larger red wire. should be 14V+ with engine running. Since the A/C works fine with the engine running.. I would have the battery checked.. sounds like bad battery.

Could be a dirty throttle body, faulty idle control valve, or a vac leak. Usually if the idle control valve fails the check engine light will come on.

While driving my 1993 929 down the road it just stopped running...had it checked out was told ti would be best to get a new motor and got a second opinion and was told to get a timing belt and fuel pump....


before going crazy , check the crank sensor out, a bad crank sensor will cause timing to be out of sync. more then likely engine will not start. or irregular rpm function if vehicle starts at all. it controls timing and sends info to pcm. if a crank sensor fails while driving the engine will die out. have scanned if check engine light is on. CPS symtoms are: car dies and won't re-start till it cools down, or won't start at all.
first of all, if crank sensor is ok, then you can check the timing belt.

When stopped at a red light my car shut off


this may have been caused by the alternator not putting out proper voltage. have car scanned and find the codes. if power is lost to pcm and other sensors the vehicle will die out. after the problem is fixed, turn off check engine light with scanner. good luck carl, check alternator voltage. car off should be at least 13 volts, when running should be 14 to 14.5.

Car died at the stoplight. Oil light came on.


Probably blowed it. Sorry to say. You can continue to crank it but it probably already seized a bearing. Run a pressure check on the oil.
