I thought I was going to be a Volvo for life kind of customer until experiencing electric problems with all my Volvos.. This is my second Volvo and was looking to buy a new one next year but changed my mind after my Volvo S60 2004 had the same computer/software/electric problem with the SRS-Airbag urgent/error message. Twice while driving in hot weather the car's dashboard indicators turn off, the car still drives but needs more power. I turn it off and on and everything is back to normal with the SRS-airbag message on. My solution is to buy a different brand of car next time, Volvo cars are really bad with the electrical system.

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.
