Question about 2004 Volvo S60

2004 s60 volvo electrcal problem

The car feels as if it has hit a large object, temporarily lurches and appears to momentarily stall creating a temporary loss of vehicle control. This is followed by an immediate loss of all instrument gauges, air conditioner, window controls and door locks. The fan did continue to work. The ABS warning light also indicated as well as a warning that no brakes function existed. The SRS service air bag urgent indication is illuminated. On turning the car off and restarting(sometimes that doesn't work, but if I remove the battery cable and let it set for a bit and put it back on the car will start), the functions of the car return with exception that the SRS service air bag urgent indication remains.

The 2001 Chrysler and Dodge minivan's are plagued with wiring issues, specifically in the brake system where it was redesigned, rerouted, and re-engineered SEVERAL times.

You have a wiring issue (likely wire chaffing in the under carriage).

SOURCE: 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan. Whenever

Reports say that this can be caused by cold solder connections in the centre instrument panel where the A/C controls are. Electrical system issue here manifests itself in instrument cluster. Fix is to remove 4 screws to access A/C stuff. Look for burnt or loose wiring / terminals on connectors in this area.. Re-solder or obtain used replacemnt terminal if needed, from junk yard. Mine is 1999 Grand Caravan. Intermittent failures then permanent with instrument cluster.

i currently own 2 of these trucks, in total ive had 6 of them .. i know i must like abuse on your cruise not working. try this the big flat panel on your dash under the steering wheel. remove this is assuming you have a tilt unit. money bets you do. but anyways the main feed wire i think its called D3 goes out to the fuse box as well as many other wires and a very fine i think again green wire. the problem is that over time using the tilt under normal circumstances those wires start to break. the D3 goes right to the key switch. if that breaks while out on the road. you have 4200 pound paper weight. good place to start. as for your brake light and abs most likley its the abs card or trigger that is located on the center of the rear axle housing. alot of times just replacing the card. if it comes back in a week then its probobly the trigger. not that its broke. this thing goes thru the housing and reads the teeth on the ring gear. and any little wear or a slight chip and they dont read right.. i quit fixing this problem on mine.truth is this thing is the second most delicate thing on the truck... the junk transmissions are the first.. sorry had to say it

S60 rough ldle and stalls after fill up

Check the evaporative system. Sounds as though there may be a stuck valve creating a vacuum om a line to the fuel tank that pulls the fuel into the motor and causing the engine to become to rich.

Hi I have a 2004 volvo s60 and recently had to replace the o2 sensor because it kept stalling ...2 months later its doing the same thing. It stalls every now and then mostly when im slowing down to stop....

A throttle position sensor will also do that because the engine doesn't know what it is receiving and what to to do.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.I really encourage responses so I can follow up properly as I know where you stand and asking someone else restarts all the explaining because we cannot see other 'Expert's' responses.Good luck,Greg

Whenever the car hits a large bump in the road the engine turns off. The car will imediatly start back up though.

Check all the battery connections. Momentary power loss causes the computer to shut down.

2004 volvo s60 check engine light on

You could have a bad MAF (mass air flow) sensor. It would really help if we could know the code. Have you ever fueled up with the engine running? How is your fuel mileage? Has it ever backfired?  Why don't you run by an auto parts (they will do it for free) store and have it rescanned and get back to me.

My response to another post, see if it is applicable:

Had the same problem where the idle would go to about 500rpm and 'cough', i.e. move up and down and not be stable. Got so bad that when I was in traffic recently the car stalled every time I came to a stop. Turns out I have a bad oxygen sensor as well as MAP sensor. Expensive parts (about $200 each) though not hard to replace. May want to check those first. MAP sensor I believe controls something with gas combining with oxygen in the engine (too much gas, not enough oxygen to combust). I would press the gas peddle and not get much response. I was flooding the engine because that sensor was bad and that's why it was stalling. All stuff I learned after my very uncomfortable experience recently. I have a 2003 S60.
