SOURCE: Causes of low battery voltage and solution

i had the same problem with my dash saying battery voltage low and the problem was my alternator. took it to the dealership and it cost me $400.00 to replace a connector on the alternator because for my year car a (2002) they don't replace entire alternator.

SOURCE: Where is the fuel filter in a Volvo S40 2005

Yes that is correct. The only filter is inside the fuel tank, and as I recall its a non exchangeable filter. It just gets replaced with the fuel pump when it goes bad

SOURCE: My low voltage light came on in my 2002 volvo s80.

Generally when there is a low-voltage or "BATTERY" light on the dash, it is indicating a charging problem. You may need a new alternator. If you have a digital volt-ohm meter, try this to double-check:

Set the DVOM to DC Volts and start the vehicle. Turn on the headlights and the air conditioner to load the electrical system. Now, while the engine is running, test the voltage at the battery. If you are only indicating 12 Volts or less, your alternator should be rebuilt or replaced. If the voltage is indicating around 14-14.9 volts, the diode trio in the alternator is at fault. Again, an auto electric shop will be able to replace this for you and/or rebuild the alternator for you. I'm suggesting the rebuild, as it's much cheaper than buying a new one.

I hope this helps and let me know if you need anything else! :) -Jason

SOURCE: How do I install a low beam bulb on a 2005 volvo

1.If you did not put spare bulb in glove compartment for emergancies (for shame!), buy H7 bulb (W-Mart is best bet). Should be about $8.00 each. The two pack is a better buy.
2. Open car hood. Behind the bulb is a black plastic "peanut butter lid" type of cap that seals the bulb in the housing. Unscrew this cap (1/16 turn) and PUT IT SOMEWHERE SAFE.
3. You will now see back of bulb. Pull off the power wire.
4. At top of bulb is a tension wire holding bulb in place. Unhhook the wire and it will hinge down out of the way.
5. Remove bulb (note its orientation) and discard.
6. Take new bulb out of package, but DO NOT TOUCH GLASS. Only hold bottom. Finger oils on glass will cook and reduce bulb life. Wipe glass clean just to be sure.
7. Install new bulb using same orientation as old bulb (it will not fit any other way) and re-latch the tension wire. Re-attach power wire (a dab of dielectric grease here would make for a professional job).
Get black cap from your safe place, note which part is bottom, and screw back on (1/16 turn).
8. Test the light, close the hood.
9. Put spare bulb in glove compartment so that next time bulb dies

My car volvo s40 saying Remote batry low voltage

It sounds to me like the problem is exactly as it's stated - the batteries in your key fob are low. In case you don't know, the electronic fob used to lock and unlock (and in some instances pop the trunk or start the car, if so equipped) runs on batteries. Just like everything that runs on batteries, the shelf life is not infinite. I would suggest researching what battery is inside of your key fob and how to open it. If this isn't something you are comfortable doing (yes, I admit, opening something that small isn't for everyone), you can take the fob into a Volvo dealership or in some cases another qualified service center and they can replace it.

Car alarm keeps going off. How to fix this

There could be various reasons why it is being set off. It could be a faulty shock sensor, or you could have a battery drain while car is off. Alarms check for voltage changes while engaged. (That would mean you have an electrical problem) . the battery voltage may be too low. (Or a bad battery/charging circuit)or the alarm itself is malfunctiong.

2006 volvo s40 2.4I. Where is the ECT(engine

    • 1 Open the engine hood by pulling the hood release latch located on the lower kick panel on the driver's side of the Volvo S40. Lift the hood up and prop it on the hood prop.
    • 2 Locate the steering shaft that extends from the firewall to lower suspension located inside the engine compartment, by the front right wheel. Halfway down the shaft, you will locate the power steering pump. The pump is a black container that bolts to the driver's side of the engine block. On the top, you will find a cap that says "Power Steering Fluid."
    • 3 Look to the left of the cap. Bolted to the power steering pump is the thermostat temperature sensor. The sensor has a black round cap and a black wire extending out of the top.

My 2006 volvo s40 won't start and the key (remote) does not work. Had to use regular key to open the door. alarm still on and car won't start.

I had the same problem when my battery went flat and tried to use jumper cables connected to another vehicles battery. I called Volvo and they said I need to disconnect the battery terminal to reset the computer. After re-conecting it the remote control worked again and I was able to jump start the car. Maybe your car's computer went into a similar state.

My daughter has a Volvo S40 (2006). The Power System Service Urgent light with a red triangle with an exclamation mark and the Battery sign with plus and minus signs came on. She kept driving and then...

This occurred to me the other day. They thought it was the alternator and battery, but nothing. What was the problem with her car. Please help, I'm going nuts trying to figure this out!

Why does a message appear saying low beam failure

The test system puts a low voltage out to the lights during initial startup and then measures the drop in ampage. If the result is not what the system expects it turns off the low beam lights to prevent damage and then displays the low beam failure message.

Did you just do an HID upgrade? THis is a very commong result after the upgrade, which is corrected by installing resistors

The ECT SENSOR of my S40 VOLVO is not working well

Is the temperature reading low? If so, your thermostat is stuck open and needs to be replaced. Or is there another problem?
